What V G Siddhartha of Cafe Coffee Day learnt from Dhirubhai Ambani

One of Dhirubhai Ambani’s sayings was “Money lost can be earned again, but lost time is lost forever.

He truly lived by that as this anecdote shows:

V G Siddhartha of Cafe Coffee Day recounts the time he was in Mumbai and used to work in Tulsiani Chambers, Nariman Point, where Dhirubhai Ambani also had an office. “There was just one lift in the building which was mostly occupied. Every day at 9:30 a.m., Dhirubhai would climb up four floors in a suit and tie because he didn’t want to waste time waiting for the lift. And I used to wonder why the rest of us couldn’t do that.”from Forbes
