Vijay Eswaran has hit Forbe’s Asia’s list as one of the richest entrepreneurs in the continent thanks to the way he built his company, QI Group Ltd. from the ground up.
But it’s his spiritual practices that he claims are the reason he’s accomplished what he has, and he decided to share them when he wrote his bestselling book, “In The Sphere Of Silence.” Forbes (US) took a look at that book and decided to give a little analysis of it.
Eswaran distinctly talks about an hour of silence in the book where he says the first step is to have a reflection on what you do did the previous day, look at how it could have been better and get ready for today. Part two is to write down what you want to accomplish today.
Part three is thinking about what you would like to accomplish in the days, weeks, months or even years ahead. Part four is reading a book that can inspire you for 15 minutes, and then writing a summary of it that you can then read for 5 minutes the next day prior to reading the next part. And then part five is the final part of the hour spent in prayer.

Louis R. Chenevert is the former CEO and president of UTC (United Technologies Corporation). He was born in Quebec Canada in 1958 and is credited as the man who saw UTC through a very successful era during while riding through a rough economic time of the subprime recession. He was able to achieve phenomenal stock growth rising from a low of 37 to a high of 117$ and was able to provide a steady dividend payout to shareholders while also reinvesting a lot back into the company.
He studied product management at an affiliate of the University Montreal and later moved to work for General Motors as a product manager after completing his degree.He was in general motors for 14years.

This led to him being appointed president of the Canadian subsidiary where he was responsible for the overall company operations in the country. After holding this position for some time he was appointed overall CEO and president of UTC. This appointment placed the responsibility of the company together with all its subsidiaries on his shoulders. He proved this to be a right decision as he was able not only to grow the operations of the company but do major acquisitions.
His major accomplishment was the purchase of Goodrich for $16.3 billion and merging its operations with those of Pratt & Whitney engines he was able to achieve a masterstroke by being in a position to offer market leaders in aircraft manufacturing such as Bombardier and Embraer the equivalent of a one-stop shop for airframe integrators.
The genius of bringing together related areas to create market relevant solutions was to manifest itself again when he brought together Otis elevators and escalators with Carrier air conditioning enabling UTC to offer comprehensive solutions for developers of transportation hubs and office blocks.
His achievements in the industry saw him receive various award such as the Honor Award from the National Building Museum as well as being named Person of the Year 2011 by Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine.
