Why save bees?

Image credits Social Media

Perfect pollinators
Supporting the ecosystems
From wild flowers to food crops


For Interconnections run deep
With the plant and animal kingdom
As much as with all of life and living.

Its said, if bees become extinct as a species
We humans will cease to be, in just four years

They not only produce the nectar of life
Bees sustain the delicate balance
Of the environment of our world.

Being Light

Dance you heart out

Walk your worries away

Talk to lighten the load

Breathe easy

Sleep well

Take on only what you can,

Have and appreciate good memories

Express love and love yourself

Take note of the good always.

Couldn’t agree more…

To be able to let go is to live life lightly.

What about you?

Do you have anything to add to this list

Align In Authenticity

Align yourself

Every once in a while

In conscious awareness

With your breath

Inhale aspirations

Exhale inspirations

Share with all of you.

Give without resentment.

Let go the spurious

Let life unfold

Tread gently

In loving kindness

Align In Authenticity

When you arrive at being comfortable being yourself with yourself & in front of others, your gifts will shine through and you will begin make a positive impact on this world.

All it takes is…

Being true to who you are:))

Your life your choice.

Life is awaiting your awareness

To realize the power of your potential.

Its all in the way you choose to live.

To let go & dare to dance the skies

To take the chance on the rapids

To walk along witnessing the flow

To sit by the shores sensing it all…

The choice rests with you…

Every moment is what you make of it

Your life your way!

Be you as you are…

You may…

Follow others to learn and imbibe

But you cannot become another

For you are created for a reason.

You carry your future in your today

Your life paves its own way

No one can be you or live like you.

You are not another or to be them.

Asserting the uniqueness of creation

Such is the way of nature.

Be you as you are…

Says it all.

All is in the journey of self discovery

The simple act of nourishing

The soul temples we live in…

Bringing balance, harmony

And happiness in and around us.

A dash of chaos!

Creativity flourishes in chaos
Even more than structure and order
For complacency will not set in
When disruptions make you resist…

You start to think outside the box
As the box when open is full of possibilities in the disruption.
So add a bit of randomness
Incorporate changes and unpredictability…

In the chaos of it all
There would be trial & error
New ways appear out of nowhere.
As creativity flourishes in disruptivity.

Expression

In these times of uncertainty
While you are making ends meet
Have you looked up at all.
Acknowledge to ones around you.

Yes they are each unique
Choose to communicate better.
Listen actively
Show empathy share a laugh.


Indulge their words & build connection
Between hearts in your home
Stay humble not busy all the times
Just to escape  making a connection.

Your cellphones can wait
It doesn’t  need your time
Your book can wait
They can be read later.


But your loved ones
Cant wait as their time is limited
They need your expression
They  need to feel loved.
They need your attention.

Express yourself
While you can!
And you certainly can!

On Action

An action that builds confidence is better than inaction which arises from fear.

At times the action is a success, at times , may be the action needs a new direction to be successful but action is better than no action.

Exploring Interconnects

A lot of times Efficacy and Effectiveness are interchangeably used while speaking….

It is interesting to delve into the interconnects between these two words.

Efficacy is about a structured metric.

Efficacy can be situation specific.

Effectiveness is the about capacity to perform.
Effectiveness is effectual result specific.

And Efficacy is the measure of being effective.

What are your thoughts on these two words? Do share.

Work from Home Reality

A good read!

Should the Corporates Invade our Homes…

A youngster was attending a video conference with his Manager who was upset over the background noises. The Youngster turned around and told his grandmother to keep quiet.

She walked towards the youngster, to take a look into what he was doing and saw a person on the Monitor and asked, “Who is he?”

The youngster muted his audio and video and said, “He is my Manager”.

She said, “I want to talk to your Manager”. But the youngster denied. By the time the Manager started pinging the youngster and the youngster unmuted to talk and his grandmother shouted, “Manager I want to talk to you”.

The Manager agreed and the youngster unmuted the video. The grandmother, with a smile said, “Namaskara” and introduced herself and the Manager also greeted her.

She said, “You look upset”.

The Manager said, “Yeah, some kind of work tension, a lot of noise around your house and we are not able complete the meeting in time”.

The Grand Mother asked, “May I help solve your problem?”

Her grandson was stopping her and telling her to keep quiet.

The Manager said, “It’s ok, let her speak”.

The Grandmother narrated, “Once there was a Young man, who sat under a tree for taking rest. He was continuously hearing a bird’s sound. He lifted his head and seeing a bird, started chasing it, so that he could peacefully take some rest. The bird came closer to him and said, “You are taking rest under my nest. I will not ask you to leave this place but you should learn to co-exist with us”.

The Grandmother looked at both of them and said, “Your Home is your nest” where you are supposed to take rest and bond with your dear and near ones. I do understand the Covid-19 situation, but you should also understand that our home is not your office.

*When we come to visit our family members at your office place, we are expected to behave professionally or maintain a certain decorum.*

Similarly, when you are using our home for your office work, you should understand the situation at our home.

There is nothing wrong with working from home, but remember, it is the family members benevolent nature, that is keeping the corporate world functioning today and the economy running.

She looked at the manager and asked, “Am I correct ?”

*The Manager’s mother peeped and said “You are absolutely right”.* 👍😊

Protocols

Definition of protocol

1: an original draft, minute, or record of a document or transaction

Setting up protocols is a tedious process
But once set, it makes things much easier.

When a team shares the same language they communicate effectively so protocols aid in communication.When rules procedures are set as the protocol to follow, workflow improves without hitches With protocols laid down like a step-by-step process every employee can have clarity on ways to address conflicts if any, and how to seek resolution.

Why is there a need and necessity of creating rules systems and follow protocols?

In the workplace, it can be a guideline for proper behavior at work and also can help prevent conflicts or protect from harassment.

With changing times and situations as they are, whether it’s a ‘Work from home or office’, netiquettes and manners can make a huge difference in the way businesses are run.

Every small exchange of interaction can make or mar the communication levels.
Setting up protocols and training modules can increase productivity and improve professionalism in conducting business.

Communication for Implementation

For protocols to be successfully implemented It has to be relevant and easy to understand. Often the rules can seem too confusing so communication is very crucial in getting protocols in place in any organization understood. And even more so in this changing world.

Standards and protocols when defined properly, can certainly help increase productivity at work. And as expectations are set and there is clarity for what methods are for the deliverables and the timeframes, there is greater ownership, attention and accountability in the organization to follow the procedures.

As a Consultant I have enabled teams across departments setup their systems in place as well as improvising on the set procedures , while making the required changes such that the process can work efficiently. Ensuring the protocols are followed is just as challenging as setting it up. However, it becomes easier when they are followed as a practice with checks and balances in all teams without too many exceptions to the rule, to support new employees to ease in to the system.

How important have Protocols been for your organization’s efficiency?

Have your teams been following through the set norms and have they been effective?

I would love to know. Do share.

Matrix Of Matter

All life is a creation that matters
What engineers matter, designs.
Simplifying the complexities
Of the matrix of matter.

In the ultimum equilibrium
All exists in resonance
But as creativity unfolds
The matrices dance in its vibrations

The profoundness of it all
Leaves lasting impression
Impacting every life in every now
This is the eternal truth of creation

Every vibrancy is a dance in infinity
In its quantum state of being.
Life matters, as it acts and responds
In every moment there is.

Mind of the matter propels and distorts
Heart of the matter creates and vibrates
Conjoined the matrix of the matter
Stabilizes creation across dimensions.
