Have Fun!

Its not so easy for many, for them the happiness is always in pursuit.. If you are one of those, please identify the persons who have lot of fun, just join them for a day or two. You will understand how they make merry in small things like grand buffet lunch with full team, gossip chat on Tea break, having favourite food at popular restaurant for dinner. All this doesn't consume much of your time, even otherwise, it can be clubbed with your official discussion and certainly it doesn't destroy your work or goals, rather it brings sense of satisfaction in day to day life, not just for you but for your entire team. Still finding it difficult, schedule fun for the day and complete it as a work!

One hell of vulnerability

Today is hell, worst day, couple of incidents made me highly vulnerable. I could have chosen to be silent as usual and the day would have been normal as any other day. I broke that silence, reacted strongly, felt very bad for the day, was afraid of repercussions but still did what is right. And the results are good, that's the power of vulnerability..

I am not enough!

Why Charles Darwin who came out with the great evolution theory delayed publishing it (if not thinking about it!) it for more than 20 yrs. Mona Lisa painting was work in progress even 12 years after the technical completion of the painting. Why they felt not enough.. Is it the feeling of not enough, drives them to the pursuit of perfection.. Is that being hidden gives them the creative freedom, Is it that not being enough brings out the best in the world but evades them the connection with people. when you have a feeling i am not enough, pursue your curiosity, put in the best you can, you are here to bring the best in the world.

But what if Darwin theory & Mona Lisa painting was hidden for ever, there could be so many artists whose theories/painting/novels are hidden forever, who are not known to this world, who have lost their life thinking that they are not enough. Certainly your creation is not enough for you, sky is your limit, but it is more than enough for the rest of the world, better than the creation of others. As Susan Cain puts it..

“You probably have the impulse to guard very carefully what’s inside your own suitcase. And that’s okay. But occasionally . . . I hope you will open up your suitcases for other people to see, because the world needs you and it needs the things you carry.”

So you are not enough but good enough to show the world what you have! please show before it is too late..

Grow or Go!

Heard that few organisations follow this model "Grow or Go" for their employees, either you grow in the organisation or go out.. Most of the organisation doesn't follow this model, they accept the mediocrity and let their people to stay in a position for long time. Big organisations are slightly better, they create a support role and move these people but small organisations live with it for ever. The effects are huge, the individuals who are struck will slow down the entire organisation because they can't move forward or go out. Imagine 20 people in a middle management level struck like this, they can slow down their entire team, around 500 people working under them and when 500 people slow down, the entire organisation slows down because the internal benchmarks are so bad that the rest of the team is not pushed enough.

Now if you are an individual who is passionate enough to grow in life, work for a company which promotes "Grow or Go" and if you are not fortunate enough, then tell yourself "Grow or Go". One, you are not slowing down the organisation, two, you will find ways & means to grow wherever you are..

Studipidy of Market share

How stupid are we in chasing market share.. Market share should be one of the measure of performance rather it has become the only measure of performance. Market share is becoming the basis for strategy rather it should be value creation for customers or shareholders. We should find constructive ways of achieving the desired market volume rather than working out various permutation & combinations to gain market share. 

So you wanna find a easy way to beat the competition, lay them a trap of market share growth, they will fall prey!

Get Exposed!

Nothing gives you more confidence than getting exposed, you may not be enough, you may not be perfect but that's how everyone is. You have nothing to be ashamed about it, get exposed again & again, you will get better..
