Sandeep Sood Sandeep Sood software developer. lead writer. badmasher.

Sandeep Sood is co-founder and lead writer for badmash.tv, an animation studio based in Berkeley, California, and Pune, India. He's also the founder of Monsoon Company, a software development firm. [www.monsoonco.com]

Every day starts with family. What gets me up in the morning are three young children pounding on my head saying, “Get out of bed!” It’s like being in the eye of a hurricane.

What I do professionally is a trade-off between being at home and pursuing my various other passions. Especially while the kids are young, each hour I spend on a creative project can feel like time lost with my family. That tricky balance is at the core of everything I choose to do. Having fun on my own and doing other fulfilling activities is definitely important – it just isn’t as important as being with my family.

When my second son was born he was really sick and had to be in the hospital for a month. I’d just taken on partners in my business. I basically handed the office keys to my new partners and said, “Look, I’m not in any sort of emotional state to handle the business right now, so do the best you can.” By the time I came back, they’d not only saved the business in my absence, but it was doing better than when I left. So I took some of my responsibilities back, but left others with my partners.

That changed my perspective. I learned that I don’t have to do it all by myself and that sometimes letting go actually brings the best possible result. It gave me a more stable sense of how to run things in my life.

More than ever, with each passing month, I’ve been realizing that I’m a much better person, a better writer, and a better CEO when I’m rested and at ease, so sleep and ease are a big priority.

One of the big things for me this year is realizing that a lot of people I’ve idolized are just human beings. They failed in so many different ways, even though they succeeded in others. That’s actually uplifting for me. It’s a mixed bag of failure and success with everyone. We all struggle.
