Maybe, this is a trait of a successful manager, I do not believe that this is a trait for a good leader. I have not done any MBA, but all these people who are running companies around me are MBS from IIMs and other premier institutes. I do not understand the rationale behind it.
In last few weeks, I have managed to turned my life into a living nightmare of some sorts. I guess it all started when I took up an assignment on July 2010 for a year. I came back into India for a period of 3 weeks to get Aabhya’s admissions in nursery and get her…
Accept the fact that what has happened in the past is simply for information purposes.
"Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognise that this is your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children - things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car.
The sand is everything else, the small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Morale, now becomes a vital factor in their growth. How they think/feel/perform is directly proportionate to how I would handle their expectations.

But, how a person behaves is based on various circumstances and not knowing all you can not hold someone for the wrong. The wrong for which you would hold someone may be your wrong and not their.

Similarly, my parents have been doing this to me all my life. There are so many "NO"s that we have to deal with. A parent seeks Faith from their child but does not understands that this is exactly what God seeks from us. God always answers your prayers - the answer sometimes is no.
But the damage was now done, but he was determined to fix it. However, to bring the balance back to both towns it took him many years. He had to be careful not to be biased towards either of the town.
We (Mom, Dad, Preeti and I) are sitting on the dining table having our dinner when my Dad asked me if I want to go along with him to the Golden Temple (Holy Place in Amritsar). I said no, because I had to work on weekends. And then started another debate between my parents and…
