Life is like...

Life is like a broom.. Clean the negative thoughts from the mind...
Life is like a "yahoo/msn messenger".... friends sign in and signoff... anytime...
Life is like a "mobile"... you may receive unwanted calls or friendship..
Life is like a "stone".... some things are really hard to forget...
Life is like a "cap".... give shade to someone..
Life is like a "battery recharger".... charge yourself up and the others around...
Life is like a "water"... be fluid and dynamic...
Life is like a "chilly"... sometimes it has to be spicy..
Life is like a "biryani".. a splendid mix of vivid experiences..
Life is like a "sizzler".... spur up the moment.....
Life is like an "auto rickshaw's meter".... u always get more than what u wanted...

But life shouldn't end up being a dull, boring life....where your every morning and every evening is the same usual stuff...

Its time for change....

The Magic of PART TIME

I have been lately listening to "Jim Rohn". Some of his thoughts are really thought provoking.

Have a quick preview...



I personally liked this because I was always on the lookout for finding the "golden" 25th hour of the day. You can read my thoughts here Personal Development : Time Planning, Repairs & Maintenance.

Once you find that extra time each day apply that to some constructive activity. You can even use this time to earn some money as well. Who knows when your hobby becomes your passion and may overtake your job and change your life, hmm, rather your lifestyle :).

Always remember "Profits are better than wages!!!" and you cannot earn profit merely by working. You have to have an enterprise however small it may be. Use your part-time to build up your own little enterprise. Remember there is nothing to lose.

Everything's related in nature. Who knows, this may help you do your job better as well and earn you a better place that currentl…

Core Leadership Strengths

Here are few notes that I am putting out from my leadership training seminar.
Lets have a look at the "Five Clusters of Strength".

- Personal Character
Character is who you are when no one is looking. This is the core strength which every leader/human should possess. This deals with the ethical standards, integrity and authenticity of the leader.

- Personal Capability
This trait deals with the intellectual, emotional, and skill of the individual. It includes analytical and problem-solving capabilities along with the technical competencies. Great leaders need a strong collection of these personal capabilities.

This deals with capability to achieve results, having an impact on the organization. It also highlights the capability for getting things done.

- Interpersonal/People skill
This relates with character. It deals with the leaders ability to effectively communicate with the people. Its a direct expression of the character of the individual and is o…

These are just my thoughts, but some you may find something interesting in it. Please think over it. We may know many things, but still we always keeps procrastinating it.

What did you learn today?

Everyday teaches you something, some lesson or the other. Some day you learn a new language, a new skill or a new hobby or visit some new place, learn music, have a different dining experience, learn swimming, make some good friends, get in touch with some old friend etc. etc.... Each of these things teaches you something...

So, what did you learn today?
Some of the learnings from my past weeks are outlined below...
Respect others. Don't underestimate them. (Though I never consciously do so)Be careful with your words because words have different meanings if the context is not clear.Spend some time for your personal stuff and allow others do so.Every individual is different, their skills different, their thoughts are different, their perceptions are different. So, be polite.Time management. (This is a tough skill to master). At the end of the day I keep looking for more time so may be you.So, again What did you learn today? This reflection is important because if you don…

The art of team work...

Team work is one of the most important element in any project be it software development or any other field of activity. And this is one of the most difficult skill to master.
Every individual is different. Every thought is different. Every emotions are different. Every actions are different. Every spoken words mean different to different people.

Understanding these traits in it's true sense requires great skill and experience. This cannot be taught. This has to be acquired. This has to be realized.


Hmm....
I am stuck..... More to come...
