Feels just right!

Life is like a never ending puzzle

And it seems all caught in a maze

Just as much as…

There comes a time when

Life finds itself

And feels just right!

It doesn’t matter if its the Army Navy or Airforce once in the forces you are always ready with a Salute!

You can take a man out of the army

But can not take the army out of him!

Humour in Uniform indeed!

Sharing a fun forward that came my way!

One day a Colonel from the Army, fell into a well. The soldiers would throw a rope into the well and pull the Colonel out. The moment the Colonel would come up, the soldiers would leave the rope snap to attention and salute. The Colonel would fall back into the well. This happened many times.

Someone suggested that a Brigadier be requested for help-because HE wouldn’t have to salute the Colonel. So one Brigadier arrived. He threw the rope into the well and the Colonel grabbed it. The Brigadier began pulling the rope. As soon as the Colonel reached the top of the well, he spotted the Brigadier. He immediately left the rope and saluted. And he fell back once more, into the well.
There was total silence. Then everyone heard the desperate Colonel’s voice from down below
*”You idiots – get hold of a batch mate !!”*
MORAL OF THE STORY: Batchmates ARE important ! They can save your life!
(Dedicated to all batchmates)

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.

On caring…





Life and living¬† can be both beautiful¬† and challenging beyond compare…

Touched by these heartfelt  words I came across so much that I just had to share..






‚ÄúTake me out to the street, son, I still have good legs. If I walk with you, I won’t feel old ‚Ķ
Invite me to your home, son, Sunday morning; to share your good table and feel accompanied …
Talk to me with love, son, don’t challenge me or shake me; we old people are like children we like to be pampered, to smile without discomfort ‚Ķ
Celebrate my birthdays, don’t criticize my follies; I’ll try to be brave, even if bitterness arises ‚Ķ
Don’t push me away from you, don’t talk to me in anger; I still have my mind clear, the memories of the past ‚Ķ
Come visit me at home, my son, I will not ask you for anything; just your presence and contemplate your face …
Don’t leave me sad and alone, don’t put me to bed; the doctors are wrong, the pain is in the soul ‚Ķ ‚ÄĚ






On Caring…

Care to give of yourself
Someday you may need it too!


Age is no bar
To create a value
For age is just a number.

Experience of living, matters.


Treat life with care
For life comes a full circle.



Life can at times be lonely
Make time to be present
In the life of those  who need you.


Just a bit of your time
A kind word or deed
Will make all the difference.




Express kindness
Your near and dear ones
Need to sense it.
Show empathy
Share the love.

Common sense

Common sense

In life and living simply knowing when to say, share, pause, or even stop is an art of mindful living.
Just as you may know to seize an opportunity. Sometimes even good relationships are lost because of sharing unsolicited advice & information.
So it is important to see subtle indifference to glaring signs of disinterest and change this way of dealing with people especially with customers.

 

Pesky Habit of Pushing Forwards.

On the subject of Forwards especially through WhatsApp, all of us may have been having this kind of meaningless forwards come our way from acquaintances. Some of them sharing every kind of isms there is! So here are words that need to be said. From a customer
To all who share endless forwards
A checkpoint in goodwill.
Every WhatsApp forward can be disturbing or distracting for another no matter the content.
Please remember to think twice before polluting an already crowded cyberspace.
There is enough knowledge out there to find if one wants to, anything at all!
In business, sometimes clients are lost because of these unsolicited shares. If you find that a client is not responding to your share by acknowledging it, then please discontinue bombarding them with your forwards every day.
Perhaps it will help save you a client. ūüėáInstead, how about being creative and enterprising instead? Why not write a blog, express and share your heart away. Those who identify will always check in. And you would be only happier for you will feel it’s worth your while.
At least you will have it all together in one place.

Have you had experiences of endless forwards coming your way?
How do you manage it?
Do you feel overwhelmed or even delete it without opening it?
Do you feel bombarded with all kinds of unsolicited forwards every time? Do share your views on this.
