Kikheto said excellence could not happen magically; it is a long process. “Irrespective of profession, you can also achieve excellence in your own ways” he stated.
He said he was impressed with the practice of farmers of Phek district who sell their produce by leaving them in marketing sheds without physically being present. The price for each product is displayed and any traveller can take the product and drop the amount in a box kept for the purpose. Kikheto said the idea is an excellent means of selling and even speaks a lot about the trust farmers have for humanity.
He advised the student to always set their goals higher so that even if they cannot achieve the original goal they can still achieve the next target.

He urged students to do things differently and also try to do positively what others refuse to do.
Kikheto pointed out that in other states or countries, people pay speakers and guests, but in Nagaland, especially in the Sumi community, things are expected of the speaker. “We invite people to come and speak and on top of that we also expect many other things from them. We should change this culture” he asserted.
