Value of lost things

January 24, 2010

The value of anything is said to be perceived better on its loss.

True, as most of us would have experienced with one thing or the other.

Logically, is there a solution to this?

How enjoyable the world would be, if only!

rhythm of life

January 20, 2010

Think are so much easier to make happen when its a habit.

Have you noticed that often when you break a habbit, it suddenly seems so much more difficult to carry out, though you had easily and routinely performed the activity earlier.

To do things on time is a habbit. Not doing it on time is also a habbit.

Check your twitter timeline, you blog post frequency. Things done regularly get done, and the rest simply get ignored though there might have been bandwidth to do it.

So. what?

Are you late for the daily morning office cab everyday?

Do you read the newspaper everyday?

Are you late for lunch with your colleagues everyday?

Are you late in your project deliverables every time?

Are you late in coming back home from office regularly?

Do you miss brushing you teeth in the night often?

Do your clear your google reader backlog everyday?

After all, what an inspirational book (or a how-to-lose-weight or a how-to-make-money ) do is to provide guidelines.

If it doesn’t get done, it doesn’t get done.


Achievers of Excellence – Talk by Harsha Bhogle

January 20, 2010

A couple of days back, I was forwarded this link, most likely by pachi.

Its a talk by Harsha Bhogle at IIM-A, about life, his college, professional career, personal ideals beautifully analysed and presented. Highly inspirational. Lot to learn about life, career and excellence from this man.

A must-watch, though agreeably, its a bit long. Trust me, take time out and watch it within this week, you’ll love it.

To pre-empt or not to pre-empt?

January 14, 2010

Life is a scheduling game.

How many things do we continue to do, just because we have started them?

Shouldn’t we try to be more productive, by learning to stop doing some things halfway, when required, and move on.

It does take some effort; after all, isn’t that exactly newton’s first law?

[The other case in Newton’s first law is a more observed problem, however. The effort it takes to start doing something new.]


reblog

January 10, 2010

Giving life to an old and abandoned blog is called reblogging.

I thought about independently and wished to coin this new term today, but alas, found that Raiedzall had already done it 6 months ago here.

Good! If not for the free and wide internet, wouldn’t many invention efforts be duplicated?

How many man years would have been spent on re-inventing the wheel?

and how much more power given to the centralized repositories of knowledge ?

The internet is the greatest accelerator of mankind’s progress.

I hope I am at least the first one to make this quote 😉

Blog posts get written easily when you sit down to write them and start

Maybe i’ll try to write every wednesday and sunday.
