Mr Ohio – Agra Trip

Guest post by my lovely sister: Anchal

Our journey to Delhi (coming back from Agra) was adventurous. Highly frustrated with the long wait at the Agra Railway Station…OMG our train was over an hour late. Bearing the heat was the biggest fear. We managed to find a seat in an air conditioned waiting room. I doubt if the AC was switched on. Anyways, after a long wait, we went to the platform to discover a non Indian chap even more frustrated. Hehe and Annkur couldn’t have missed clicking him; and, why not? They make movies on Indian slums, we just got a picture.

AnyWay, But…

People are
unreasonable, illogical and self centred.
Love them anyway.

If you do good,
people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful
you win false friends and real enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today
will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness
make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

People favour underdogs
but follow only top dogs.
Fight for some underdogs anyway.

What you spend years
building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help
but may attack you if you help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have
and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you’ve got,
ANYWAY

But…  don’t I (we) deserve better?

There are no Failures, Its just Feedback – (Failure IS an option)

I came across this post today by Jeremyliew “Failure IS an Option” –

The great thing about Silicon Valley has been the entrepreneurial culture, and the acceptance that working for a failed startup is not necessarily a judgement on your character or your ability. But recently there seems to have been a change in attitudes at least amongst some people (trolls?) who are taking joy in the misfortune of others. When a startup closes down, founder’s dreams die. Employees find themselves looking for work, and at least for a period, worrying about paying their bills and supporting their families. This should never be a cause for celebration. [Read Full]

As I always say (Yes Ariginals) – Entrepreneurs are the riders of storm, they venture out in troubled waters …! For any entrepreneur who feels insecured about their ventures these words should set the record straight for you. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN TRYING!! Atleast you are giving it a shot – Follow your heart, do it, and if it doesn’t work, accept it without any shame.

Hour long Inspirational Video

“When people are telling you where you are going wrong, they have hopes from you… This is a good sign. When they stop telling it, then the situation is scary … They have GIVEN UP on you!”

“Experience is what you got, when you didn’t get what you wanted”

“Nobody is all evil … Just keep looking, you will see their good side”

This video is really LONG. IF you are out of time (I bet you are), then jump over to the other Inspirational Video of Steve jobs (Which actually will be a little more easy to understand for you).

And if you really watched this video, or even if you didn’t here is the Wiki Page of Randy Pausch…! Cheers

Multitasking: A lesson I guess learnt in time!

I have always chewed more than what I can bite… And this has perhaps hurt me more than anything else in life. And in the last few months I am working hard to get back the FOCUS.

So what exactly is wrong with Multitasking? It is good… yes it is, but even your PC hangs while doing it. You are just a human! One needs to focus and concentrate on one thing at a time. Don’t mistake this as a NO to do many things, but One after the other. Thats the approach. Think, Plan but don’t disturb yourself with too many things at once!

In 2005, the BBC reported on a research study, funded by Hewlett-Packard and conducted by the Institute of Psychiatry at the University of London, that found, “Workers distracted by e-mail and phone calls suffer a fall in IQ more than twice that found in marijuana smokers.”
