Arjun Sachdev: This website The Improvement Terminal was an idea that developed in my mind when I read Mark Manson’s classic “The subtle art of not giving a fuck“. When I was reading the book, one phrase just hit me which said
“We are never right. We certainly are less wrong from the previous time”
and I started thinking, it is actually right. Our lives are improving every day, look around and see examples we were using telephones and then cell phones and now smartphones.
Similarly, from bullock-carts to the never-ending improved technology of vehicles.
The one phase we actually are lacking is personality. Our surrounding things are improving but we humans are stagnant or just deteriorating on the personality side.
So to initiate and encourage people to improve their personality and finances, this blog was started.
You must be thinking Okay. But Arjun Sachdev Why name it “The Improvement Terminal”
Why such a name “The Improvement Terminal“?
Reading the above-mentioned point I came to a realization where I understood that Improvement cannot have a terminal because the terminal is a point where something ends, the happy realization was there shouldn’t be a stop for improvement. Improvement is a continuous process.
Every time we improve we move towards perfection but we never reach there because perfection is an illusion
So to overcome the limit the belief of a terminal for Improvement, I named this blog as “The Improvement Terminal’ where improvement is not limited.

A passion for writing and the need for personality development in India motivated him to start this blog. The idea of starting this blog came to his mind when he became aware of the fact that there is a lack of financial literacy and self-improvement, especially in India.

Arjun Sachdev: I am very grateful that I got the opportunity to attend courses from the Dale Carnegie Institute through my company. I am a great fan of Mr Dale Caregie because of his book “How to win friends and influence people“.

How The Improvement Terminal adds Value
Above all at The Improvement Terminal, we try to provide valuable content. With the help of great ideas from books and inspiring interviews of Millenials. From people trying to hustle hard and prove it to the world that they have the fire inside them to achieve what they desire
I, Arjun Sachdev with The Improvement Terminal is focused on teaching you how to improve your finances through financial literacy. Also, improving your personality through the various books I have read and the courses I have done.
Interview with Rohit Kashyap made me realize that “Age is just a number and maturity has no link with age” and Interview with Dipanshu Rawal revealed to me “Forgiveness is the thing we should have inside us”
The Improvement Terminal is a learning platform and Arjun Sachdev is also a part of the process. I am also learning and sharing with you some great ideas which I think would also help you.
Just read out the interview of Rohit Kashyap and you will find out, how an individual can grow when he focuses on improving himself. I was shocked to see an 18-year-old answering question like that. Read this and you will be amazed too.
At The Improvement Terminal, I try to focus on learning from the people who have achieved what I desire, and thus on the way I try to bring the piece of content which provides value to you.
There are some quotes on failure which I want to share with you
“The formula to success is double the rate of failure”
Failures are great teachers but it does not mean, it should belong to us. We can learn from other people’s failures and how did they overcome those failures and that’s why I emphasize reading books. I always believe in sharing knowledge and learning from other people’s failures.
Wisdom is spread in the pages of books. Books help you connect with the greatest minds that have accomplished something in life. They reveal to you how great people have made things possible.
See when an author writes a book he/she pens down all the experiences, knowledge, skills and strategies of their life the mistakes they committed in their life, what were the failures or temporary defeats they faced, how did they fight their struggles and how they came of out of it and made their lives successful.
And all these above things over an extended period of many years of the author’s which can be 10 years, 20, 30 or maybe 40 years which is transferred in a small book of maybe 200,300 or 400 pages.
Years of experience gathered in a single book that you can read in a few hours. Galileo was aware of the power of books reading and once said that “A reader lives a thousand lives”
Something to testify
When a writer reads all the appreciation and praising comments that’s all that he wants in life. A writer believes in providing value from his content and when people appreciate what he wrote, it is worth more than what he can earn in his lifetime. You are aware of the fact that whatever you are doing is making people’s lives better.
Getting overwhelming comments on blog posts is a different thing but what’s more important is the value you give out through the content you provide.
You can’t get away when you have this kind of response, and these are just a few there are many but I won’t bore you with the praises I get, but in case you wanna check out the blog post where I received such comments. Click here
