Taking long term decisions, the right approach.

What is the right approach? What kind of decisions am I talking about? Any decision that is associated with a long term goal, has the potential to affect your life or others’.

Let’s dive into the approach, first let’s talk about the reason this thought came to my mind, during an Uber ride, we were discussing a career decision my Uber driver made, and I heard him saying, there won’t be a saturation for next 15-20 years, and the switch in my head clicked! Saturation? Really, that’s how you’re making a long term decision? Something the might affect the rest of your life, you’re just looking at the next 15-20 years?  Now, I’m not a certified career counsellor, but he mentioned making an investment in this stream of study, so it’ll keep him ahead of the curve in the said field for the next 15-20 years, that just ticked me off, of-course I didn’t get mad or anything, but I did shake my head in disappointment hearing the two words ‘investment’ and ‘saturation’ in one sentence.

What I said to him; If you’re looking at something as an investment as opposed to an interest, don’t go by how long the saturation will be from today, go by whether it’s simple and evolving enough to last forever.

Now this approach you can apply to anything, any additional skill you decide on pursuing, any formal education in a certain field, anything you’re investing your resources in. Cheers!

I was asked… is motivation draining?

Ran into someone and we got talking, I think I conveyed the response on the spot. However, I think this is something that could help everyone so thought to share it here. We already know the question, let’s dive straight into the answer; Pure? No. Now, I realize it’s getting controversial here, like a lot of people would say what’s Impure Motivation? Are you questioning certain people? Are you questioning us? My response ‘NO’.

What I mean by the word ‘Pure’ in this context is if it’s really your goal/a cause close to your heart to help people, you’ll feel energized by it. You won’t feel drained. Do you know how a battery works? Charge flows from positive to negative. Now, I realize, you must be thinking; Aha! Doesn’t a battery get drained and eventually runs out of charge? Yes it does. But do you know there’s also a concept of earthing? (In electrical circuits). That’s why, so it doesn’t necessarily/at all drain you, you should stay grounded. Yes, grounded in the sense of being humble, but also emotionally stable. It does sadden our heart sometimes, seeing people/ourselves in trouble, but you don’t let it affect you, because what you’re trying to achieve here is bigger than anything, and that keeps you always positive, keeps adding to your professional. Feel good about yourself, if you were kind enough to help someone selflessly. When was the last you helped someone without expecting something in return?

Has it been that long? Go do it now! 🙂

Find your champions!

What does it mean? Am I talking about hiring/recruitment? In a way, you know how all of us that are focused on growth in all different aspects? It relates to that. Consider it an advise if you may. Usually, most people are capable to be an all-rounder themselves, some of us have sticking points, some of us need a little help in achieving our goals, some of us can be our own coaches. However, what I’m proposing to y0u here, is to go out and find your champions, people who’re professionally trained in a certain area and can coach you to success, to achieve your goals in that aspect/area of life. Remember how Robin Sharma suggests paying for personal trainer is an investment. It does two things :

  1. Ensures you’re growing in an extra dimension of your personality/are acquiring a new skill. (An upgrade, if you will 😉 ).
  2. Gives you headspace to focus on extra/new goals/additional goals/expansion.

Now for those of you looking to find out what all areas I’m being coached-in by my set of champions; getting too personal, aren’t we? 🙂

Keep growing, keep rocking.

You and I, are a dream.

You and I are a dream,
Mischievous, had me believe,
Playful, had me jump,
Tried to not buy it,
You had me receive;
The idea of us together.
You with your smile,
And flirtations,
talking chalets and camp fires,
Though I didn’t want,
Kept raging my desires,
Pumping me heart and veins,
Having my thoughts change,
About me and you,
I didn’t believe, you still had me receive,
The idea of us together.
Seem you quite lost now,
As if all you cooked,
Was never a reality but only a dream.
A dream you never forced in my head,
A dream that wasn’t ever had.
Even if you come back now,
Let me tell you darling, as I scream,
You and I honey, are a dream.

We just probably are…

Looks like you have my heart…
Hopefully you won’t be another one breaking it apart…

Every time I have to pickup the pieces and then I sew it and I move and marte
You seem sweet, you seem plausible, you seem intriguing, maybe this is it? But then I think probably not?!

It seems like you like me, it appears that you adore me, we gel pretty well, maybe this is it? But then I think probably not?!

You’re so flirty, you’re so playful, how do I know you’re serious? how do I know you mean what you say you do? How do I know you’re who you seem you’re?!

Off all this confusion, my heart’s still racing, every time I think of you, everytime I think about us, even though we’re not next to each other, even though we’re so far!

Show me a sign, make me believe that it really is so, you mean what you say, you really are who you say you are!

We get along, we challenge each other, that’s always good, that’s always wonderful, I think we may join each other and we may go together, build a world larger than life, i feel we will drive life at par!

Maybe even more, maybe so much, it’s never enough, the love we share, keeps growing, grows so much it goes beyond bizzare!

Considering the time we’ve spent together this far, maybe this is it? But then I think probably not?! And we’re actually not meant to be, we’re just here now, and we just probably are…

Helping people… don’t make it a business!

Well, make it a business and don’t, I know and I’m sure you’re confused and you must be thinking what am I trying to convey here, do I even know what I want to say? The answer is YES, I know what I want to say, and it is, make it your business to help people don’t make it a business in the sense of just seeking profits. You must have heard quite a few times, ‘People are business’, it’ll totally, absolutely, certainly depend on the person stating and the person receiving the message which’ll define what the original intent is and how it’s been perceived. Yes People are business, in the sense that you take care of people working with/for you, and they’ll take care of your business, your client’s interests, however, people are not commodities for business, not a business vehicle. Doesn’t matter how you frame it, if that’s what you’re doing in the end, even if you’re conveying it as if you’re helping them, it’s unethical, it just takes wise/experienced wo/men to figure the  difference in these two things, it’s only intent that defines what the person’s in it for, and just the intent makes all the difference as it’ll define what’s going to be a by-product of such an intricate action. So, be wise, be ethical, know the difference and avoid opportunities(options that seem like opportunities) that make you compromise your ethics in any way, shape or form. Adios for now!

It’ll be SHAZAM!

It was juvenile yet serene,
your presence around me, something it did mean.
Lack of it I can instantly feel,
Howsoever brief it may have been,
Something to me, it still did mean.
You’re not the one to be in one place,
You’re a butterfly, world’s yours to chase,
Still I did dream, us lying there,
Having fun teasing each other,
Waking up to you is still a wish,
Maybe someday it does come true,
I can just imagine the songs nature on such a day will sing…
A tender warm sunrise, the innocence on your face,
your smooth hair, the cutesy shape of your nose, birds chirping, clouds moving, waves in the lake dancing…
Your deep hazel eyes, a universe of it’s own…
Your soft lips, like a door to heaven, have me flown…
Up in the air, floating I am…
Just imagining how would it be.
If it does come true, it’ll be SHAZAM!
Oh love, maybe someday, we can be together,
Can’t wait, can’t wait to get there.
If it may not for some reason be for long, I’d just like to relive the moments, when you’re here.
Close to me, closer to my heart,
Your bouncy playful energy doing it’s part.
Up in the air, floating I am…
Just imagining how would it be.
If it does come true, it’ll be SHAZAM!
