WE MUST TAKE ACTIONS IN ORDER TO BECOME WHO WE DESIRE TO BE

Greek philosopher said, “To move the world we must move ourselves.” (Remember, Socrates had never written anything, it is his first disciple Plato who has written for him.)

THREE KEYS OF HAPPINESS AT WORK PLACE

 I drove to the San Francisco UPS headquarters, a block-wide fortress of freight. A staffer of human resources took me to get me a uniform and pointed me towards the locker room.

They act with anger and loud noise and bring the results. But, it is not a mentoring leadership. When you commit anger, focus is shifted from the mistakes to ...

THANKYOU FOR YOUR COPERATION AND VICE A VERSA

It had been a long, hot August day. We’d driven over six hundred miles and it was near 11 pm as we entered Kingman, Arizona. We pulled off and picked a motel. Much to my surprise, it being mid-week, the deskman informed me they were full. Next place, it was the same story. This time, I asked the clerk for ...

THINK OUT OF BOX AND HERE IS THE EXAMPLE

This is what 15-year-old Sarojini Mahajan realized after her idea of using human pulse to charge a cell phone was picked up by Stanford University. Sarojini, a class IX student of St Mark’s Senior Secondary Public School, Meera Bagh, had sent her idea as an entry to IGNITE 2009 – a nationwide contest of innovative ideas. Though she won a ...

WHAT IS HAPPINESS AND HOW IT CAN BE ACHIEVE.

What is happiness, and how can we achieve it? Happiness can’t be reduced to a few agreeable sensations. Rather, it is a way of being and of experiencing the world—a profound fulfillment that suffuses every moment and endures despite inevitable setbacks.  Matthieu Ricard, left, quit his career as a cellular geneticist nearly 40 years ago to study Buddhism. He is ...
