A great career is about to end.  One filled with many many runs that even the best can only dream of.  Yes, we are talking about the one and only Sachin Tendulkar.  As he is retiring, I just thought of how much I learned by just watching him.  That’s when I realized why not pass that learning to others as well or at least highlight what we can learn from him. 
This post is specifically dedicated to software developers.  But this can be applied for anyone in any field.
So what are the things that software developers can learn from this great guy?  Here we go with the list.
Passion for the game
One thing that is pretty to hard to beat this guy at a young age or even now is his passion for the game of cricket.  He used to bat, bat and bat without getting tired at the nets day in and day out.  He loved the game so much that he lived it. 
Similarly developers should be passionate about developing great software.  It is the passion that keeps a man going and work never looks like work if you are passionate about it.
