In celebration of Women’s History Month, Jasmeet Kaur, Head of Program Management at Clearwater, shares the women who have inspired her most:
My mother – she taught me one of the most important words in my life, and constantly reminded me about it: balance. I work on it every day – balancing my work, family, health, social life, and my time.
This leads me to the next woman, Indra Nooyi – I love this quote from her: “At the end of the day, don’t forget that you’re a person, don’t forget you’re a mother, don’t forget you’re a wife, don’t forget you’re a daughter.“ She showed an unbeatable determination and commitment in every role she took, while maintaining a balance with all areas of her life.
Sheryl Sandberg – one of the lessons from her book Lean In I resonate most with is –this: find your path and your goal, don’t measure your career and life with other people’s rulers.
Melinda Gates – there are two important lessons of life that I learned from Melinda Gates:
1. Do things wholeheartedly. As she once said, “I’m wholehearted about whatever I do.”
Whether in the workplace, our relationships, or our communities, we can succeed if we put every ounce of our willpower into focusing on what we want to achieve. We all will become more productive and positive individuals at the end of the day.
2. Giving Back – when I think of the idea of giving back, I think of this quote from Melinda Gates: “If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Remember also that you are indebted to life until you help some less fortunate person, just as you were helped.”
Michelle Obama – she taught me to be true to yourself, value yourself, and prioritize yourself even when it means that sometimes you must let go of something essential and precious to you for the greater good, like the way she refocused her career to support her partner for the greater good of our nation.
My daughter – she is my daily reminder and motivation for me to implement what I learn from all the women who inspire me, and to be a role model for her.
