My operating principles

Am too principled, is what I feel. Come to think of it, I have missed out on a whole lot of fun in life because that. The quote – “Don’t take life too seriously, no one makes it out alive anyway!” is maybe meant for people like me. I realize that, but my brain and…

Inspires me

I don’t remember who, but someone once told me, “Learn all that you can from all the sources you can”. I follow it diligently. I think everyone has something different to teach us. The teacher I wrote about, in one of my posts, who stood by me, against her colleagues opinion, she was one of…

I am on this earth to…

This prompt brought forth the thoughts that I keep trying to push to the background. I’ve deep down in my heart believed that I’m on this earth to achieve something big. I know that “big” is a relative term. Since childhood, I always felt that I need to prove my capability to my parents by…

3 most important values

Honesty – This holds the utmost importance to me. Nothing enrages me more than petty lies and dishonesty. I don’t mind it, if people speak the truth on my face instead of finding reasons or excuses. The principles of honesty are deep-rooted within me. My mind goes back to an incident that had occurred, back…

Words that best describe me

On a spur, I decided to take up this 28 days personal discovery prompt challenge. It was done in Feb actually, but that shouldn’t stop me from taking it up any time, isn’t it? How it works is that, there are 28 prompts which I should write/blog about. I’ve decided to do it, over the…

July – Book Review

Okay, I am not really good at reviewing stuff and haven’t tried it before. But I wanted to blog about a few things that I’ve consciously decided to do. It’s more of, keeping an account and motivating myself to do better. While I was a voracious reader at some point of time in my life,…

Nonsense!

A friend of mine, who I know from quite a few years is irritating to me to the core. He likes a girl, whom he wants to get married to. But the girl’s family is not agreeing and there are having a hard time in trying to convince them. On the other hand there is…

Never Give Up?

Is the never give up attitude really something so great? Should it be meticulously cultivated? Since childhood we are taught not to give up and to keep trying. There are enough and more quotes which tell us the same – “Try and try till you succeed”, “Stop not till you reach your goal” and such….

Interviews

Not long back I was struggling with interviews. Getting a new job wasn’t easy. My confidence was at an all time low and every interview I attended, scared me more and affected my positivity. I would be gripped by tension, from the day before the interview. It would rise with every passing hour, until just…

Bengaluru

Yup! That’s what pops to my mind first, when i think “B for …” . Maybe because it is extremely close to my heart. Every city is close to the heart of its resident, I guess. Over time we carve a niche for ourselves in the place we’ve stayed for long. It was here that…

Completing the Circle

This is something that I learnt from the Professor under whom I worked at the beginning of my career. No, it is nothing to do with math, compass etc., in case you thought so, as I wrote about my Prof. What he gave as a simple piece of advice, stuck on. Any task assigned to…

Crap Customer Service!

Whatever happened to good customer service? It seems like a long time ago when people at the store would greet you with a smile. Owing to fact that there used to be a selective few regular stores we visited, people even recognized us. Now there are streets full of stores, all lined up next to…
