New Year 2021- The Oath!

2020 was filled with COVID-19 news and influences around. There were perspectives of good happy days and the factual sad worrisome moments. While the COVID was taking its world troll; impacting so much of daily life activities and wellbeing, some folks were downplaying the virus for political reason. It wasn’t a bit pleasant to hear about it despite our ideological affiliations. But, planet as we know, has variety of personas and creatures with unique attributes; we can’t escape from the diversity it brings. We need to be aware and knowledgeable such that we are able to filter the good vs bad the fact vs the fabricated.

The theory of perception says objects are open to interpretation and the way one see it. It further quantifies that a world for person is what he sees and views. But the facts do not lie. Our views and norms could differ with the fact i.e the data, but that is the truth.

So with 2021, let’s embrace the factual data for our own goodness; the self reflection into our shortcomings to enhance our skills / knowledge , be independent Lets build the core strengths that each one of us desire we have, and amplify our success by acknowledging the importance of interdependence for ecological balance and a win- goal.

Slavery Redefined- A happy look!

You must have read my post on independence, the price of achieving , maintaining it and the feeling of liberty. It’s awesome and its great. But are we really free ? This thought provoked me to visit the diverse and deep nature of entangled contemporary slavery.  Modern or contemporary slavery comes in many forms and nature. i.e the  financial slavery, emotional slavery, relational slavery and so on… There might be very few people, free of financial burden, emotional attachment, and obliged to someone\something due to a relationship with an individual. We all know we have and we’ve been there. But we enjoy these slavery as they provide us certain level of grace, feeling of happiness and emotional stability in the long run.

Human slavery was a very big issue in early colonial days and still exists in some parts of world in one form or the other. But it’s mostly prohibited by law around the globe. We all know about the  emancipation and proclamation on the end of human slavery, but we fail to admit or overlook the contemporary slavery of things; the materialistic society, its necessaries and the social rituals and obligation. Nirvana is hard to achieve. We don’t see the burden of suffocation, the contemporary slavery  in this materialistic society as we are use to it.

Unless we  rise above and beyond to see the reflection and have a new look at the materialistic society and its entangled dependency on various factors, its hard to see the contemporary slavery.

Independence – A big deal !

Me and My wife were waiting on the market plaza for the fireworks to begin. Right before we headed to the 4th of July celebration event, we had a delicious pizza; one that my wife was craving for, for a month now. We parked our car and walked to the main event center where all the people were celebrating on their own ways. Kids were happy with the lights, adults we sipping beer that was available on the market and families were seen cozy rolling on the Matt they bought from home. It was quite a cheerful and a bit of romantic atmosphere everywhere.

I thought of the cost associated with the celebrations through out the country. It must be pretty huge I said to myself in a monologue. I started to calculate and weigh the price of freedom, evaluate the importance, and the feel of just being free or having the feel of autonomy, the self, and under no ones control, its quite goose.  Independence does not come free! It has a price and  a big one and we pay everyday to preserve and maintain it.  I am pretty sure most of us know about our war martyrs and our veterans , our ancestors that gave their blood and sweet against the fight for cruelty, dominance ,slavery ; for the freedom.  Its a huge deal and a huge trade off for the sovereignty. Feel it, keep it, be responsible and preserve it. its a beautiful thing to have.

We all feel like a bird flying in the sky when liberated  \ emancipated.  Freedom is priceless.

Mind-The Power of What we Think

There are lot of books and articles  written on the power of mind and its thought process. Not sure if all of them come from a personal experience or a scientific research. But be it a product of personal experience or a scientific research, they tend to carry the facts and elaborate  results. A genuine writer would never exaggerate the facts for their own propaganda and publicity. ( I know novice one might do it unknowingly  thought ) .

We are what we think and we become what we think. This is the beauty of mind. if you do not believe in this. Try it for a period of time and observe the results. Like I explained in my earlier post, commitment plays most of the role here too. When you set you mind in a direction or in a though process, you tend to achieve what you want. If you think you are happy , you definitely are and tend to be more. If you think you can do certain things then you might as well.  Our body is so controlled by the mind that good and bad can happen just because you thought about it.

When I say we are what we think, I am not deliberately asking us the ignore the fact and fell strange things in vain.  Say for example, considering perfectly healthy while being critically sick would be wrong. But if you are positive minded person, you live your life better and happier than a lunatic one. Some of the things in life cannot be changed. It’s the law of nature, but our body and mind  are so intact that your thoughts results in an action that you want to change in future. Thoughts is what drives your physical and mental actions; the perception and the power to achieve anything you desire in life.

Process it in your mind and set it tight that you want something, you would get it. All of your conscious raw  decisions  could result in actions by your unconscious mind. I hope everyone would have experienced saying something even before thinking about it. These sentences or words that would have been processed by our conscious brain sometime back and would have been delivered by out unconscious mind.

Decisions- Right or Wrong.

My friends call me a salt & peeper guy in a mockery way because of my gray hair. Some sympathize and call me wise guy. Having gray hair in the western world is sometimes referred to as a wise person. The irony is that every old man is wiser ! ( relatively speaking) just because they have see the world and its turns. They have been through most of the obstacles and cherish of life; the sweet, sour bitter and salty all the experiences of day to day life. Do all old people make  the visionary decisions? the answer is also gray not so straight black and white.

Its always not so easy while making decisions, especially when you don’t have the all the constraints or the factors that would affect decision \results of it. One would be better off collecting all the factors that could potentially rut the stream reverse and make a judicial action based on the facts, Logical decisions are mostly seem right but not always. So anyone can make the right decision just by  follow the simple rules. Few factors I consider to be helpful while making decisions.

  1. Know completely what is at stake.
  2. Know what you would want as a outcome of your decision.
  3. Know all the parties\ factors that would affect your decision or the result of it.
  4. Weigh in the pros and cons and quantify them as much as possible
  5.  If loosing this decision outcome benefits in the long run go for it.
  6. Make it shrewd, concise and judicious but don’t rush.
  7. Don’t rush, but take ample of time to decide, dwell on the problem statement and the preferred outcome  and make your decision. You will be mostly beneficial.

Desire, Ambition & Reality.

Popular hearsay – Its not ones fault to born poor but to die poor would be their incompetence, lack of commitment, lack of desire to learn to be better.. it goes on and on and if we continue, we will have too many versions for it.

I agree on some part of the saying, around the similar line, and especially the commitment part. We all have desires , dreams, ambitions and fantasies but to make those wishes into reality needs a plan and commitment.  Be it  a poor or a rich planning but if you stick to it  you get the desire result; commitment is the gist of all the achievements; turnaround of all the wishes into reality.  If we commit on doing something, we should finish it up. This will bring happiness, a feeling of achievement,  success  and a great success story to pass on into generations.

Not everyone is born intelligent smart or fortunate.. but you can be one if you dare to commitment. Stick to the plan, think though what you wanted to achieve, and execute it . Follow to success measuring steps of your own or the ones i have laid out in the earlier post.

Lets get prosperous together. We can always build a better word of our own. Smiles

Success – A Measurement

Do you consider yourself a successful man? a successful husband, a father , a son or a successful human being. Ho do you justify your claim of being success in various sectors and forms of life ? Its not easy. You must be be vigilant , astute and a deep observant. to scrutinize and  quantify the attributes of success.

Success comes in many forms; some are tangible and some are not. Most of the successes of life; be it being wiser, healthier , emotionally stable, or improve networking and  soft skills , they cannot be accurately measured. Quantification of these types of success depends on the perception of people towards them. They are subjective and are prone to be different per person . They are, in a way, intangible ;you have advanced it but cannot be easily measured. They are very subtle and measurement of these are based on the the inner self satisfaction. To bring it into metrics, and to weigh the success, it requires  minute scrutiny by the trained professional.

However, the tangible successes of life like  career goals, financial goals, and health goals can be easily accessed. They can be set as SMART goals of life. SMART acronym has its own  conventional definition but as it sounds smart the goals has to be categorized and optimized to a grading structure where any minor or major developments , steps and advancements are given a value. The total from the breakdown should make 100% scale or a 1 to 10 scale based on your comfort.

Jump-start Direction for Success.

  1. Goal Setting : This is your final product. This is what you want to see a the end of the exercise.
  2. Milestone Stetting : Here you identify the minor and major milestones and  give a target dates of completion.
  3. Score setting for each milestones. Based on the work load you evaluated and quantify points for each advancement
  4. The Projection Graph : This graph will show your progress, futuristic evaluation and assessment.
  5. Reassessment : This is where you reevaluate your goal setting and time estimate. You visit points 1-4 and re-access them.  If you fall behind your schedule and target achievement then you might have underestimated  the work or were effective in execution.
  6. The walk from the Fallback:  Grade the final achievement , major and minor milestones must be set up well in advance to track the progress.  After each milestone grade your work your goal in percentile basis. you will get the advancement result. If you find below 50 % of your target in each assessment points you would need to reassess your goal setting and minor targets. Fall back and advance. measure and continue celebration.
  7. Define yourself a success for the activity.

Attributes of Leadership

Everybody in this world is a follower of someone. Even the ones we call leader would have been a follower of something, someone or some ideology. You only become a leader if you follow. Sounds strange ! but yes ! if you see it in a retrospect, perhaps you can see where you stand now and where you were had you followed someone\something you admire. It is amazing to see how things change when you passion for at least following . It does not matter what you follow. You will see tremendous progress and development in that sector. Leadership consists of mainly two actors;

  1. Leader
  2. Everybody Else

Leader could be a group of people or a single individual depending on the situation and circumstances. In an organization, leader is a whole management team. Within the management team there is an individual who leads the team. He is the leader. He makes the final decision. He innovates solutions to problem. Orchestrate the execution strategy and goal achievement. Similarly, in public, arts and political arena. A leader installs hope and dreams on the “Everyone else”. He shows the unseen, tells the unbelievable and does the unprecedented. but tries to  move the ball rolling forward closer to the vision he made you dream about.

The Everybody Else is an essential and an integral part and an actor of the leadership universe. They are the ones who make a leader, they are the reason leader exists at the first place. It is very essential to understand the value of this “Everyone else” group. They are one ones who actually makes the dream come true. Say for example, in a vehicle, the steering shows the way but it’s the engine and the associated parts that actually makes the vehicle moving towards the steering direction.

So the moral here is you are who you are.. Either a leader or an Everybody Else, You can build your value and brand by following simple but passionate activities. You will ultimately be a leader in that field.




Anatomy of Leadership

Irrespective of who we are; a businessman, a politician, a philosopher, an educator, an inventor, a farmer, a normal person or the rest of all, we all have a leadership quality built-in with us. In a family, head of household is  a leader; in classroom ,a captain is a leader; in a society,  a congress man is a leader; in state, a governor is a leader; in a country, head of the country (President, King, Prime Minister etc.. ) is a leader. Everyone is a leader at some point in their life, everyone has the inherit quality to influence, govern or guide some one or some cause. After all we all are leaders. The only question is how far reaching is ones leadership attribute and talent that defines one, and ones leadership rank and outreach.

Attributes of Leadership

  1. The Leader
  2. Everyone Else

The type of leader and our leadership shine depends mainly on the two factors; number of followers one has, and a record history of success. Leadership is a quality of bringing people together. Its about providing a clear solution to a problem. Its about accepting the challenge and work rationally to overcome it. Real world problems are multidimensional with range of multi variable complexity, the quicker you accept the fact the closer you are to the solution of it. Leadership is about building bridges and extending support.  Its about helping people understand the cause; shine the dungeon of ignorance with the radiant of wisdom and virtue of prosperity.
