Phone conversation lengths

March 13, 2010

I felt, recently that while speaking to ppl after a long time, there are hardly things to talk..

duration of phonecall per rate of phonecall

Now, have you felt it? Why is it so? My hypothesis is that when looking at life in a long-term perspective, there’ll be little that is off-average which can be spoken about. Of the short term, the variance will be more.

rhythm of life

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.

To pre-empt or not to pre-empt?

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.]

when to make public your blog

May 16, 2008

Everyone would have a first blog


And making it public is a decision you’d have to take a call. when ? is it good enough ? lotsa questions, excpecially with first-timers. in fact,  there are more ..

Ask your PR manager.

😀 yeah right. ( here is where it gets boring ) lotsa people are not comfortable that people they know in real life read thoughts they’d have put up on the net. and the audience is (generally) not restricted with authentication requirement. How secure really is the internet? do i really have control ? Who knows who all’d get to read my blog! can i write against somebody ? my professor? 😀 my manager ? 😉

In fact people have different blogs, and maintain anonymity in several. yet, a blog gets life many-a-times only when it is part of a network, a network of blogs or people (or spiders:D).

Alright, would this be best time to make my blog public ?

i’d say anytime is better than no time. i did say that to itrags and it still hasn’t really taken of !

great. let’s check vaastu ? it’s arbit anyway. let it be more arbit. it’s not gonna get any less arbit by doing this. ( maybe i should set an arbit quotient with every post. this post – 9 on 12)

okay this is may 16, may – jan feb apr may . 4 . sorry, jan feb mar apr may . 5 . lol. gotcha. one two three four five! aaagh FIVE

16th . aagh. 16 is 2 power x. i mean log16 is an int. it should make good vaastu. makes sense ?

ditch-all. go sleep.
