My thoughts on few questions


Well I would like to answer few questions asked to me which I think are very thought provoking

  • What comes first:filial duties or personal satisfaction?

When I see the word filial, I am in an assumption that filial duties are duties towards your dependents.

Well, I would say that if you keep my loved ones happy, eventually you would be happy. Therefore, that suffices the question .

  • Eating or breathing,which one is more important?

These two things complement each other

If I don’t breath I cannot eat. And If I don’t eat I will not breathe. Not sure why this question popped up? Well both are important to keep you healthy.i would mention

I eat nutritious food and I do pranayama(Breathing exercise) to stay healthy

  • Your favourite quote on life?

There are multiple . I will quote Few of them

  1. Ideation without execution is just a delusion
  2. “Your “I CAN” is more important than your IQ.”
  3. investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make

 

  • The craziest thing you have done so far?

Again Many . I could remember all the pranks during college days , Dancing to folk songs when Hip hop is my forte . It was a crazy, fun and a personal challenge to myself.

  • Ur favourite book and why??

Multiple , I will mention few of them .

who will cry when you die / Leader who has no title– Robin Sharma

A walk to remember –Nicholas Spark

Steve Jobs- by walter issacson

Tuesdays with Morrie

Over the top-zig ziglar

  • Alcohol?elucidate your feelings for it.

A STRONG NO. I would never prefer , consume or recommend it

  • Do you dream about being successful or happy and why?

Both are complementary

I always have goals that will lead me to happiness. I always enjoy the process or journey towards my dream.

I believe every successful milestone should make you happy.

Having a balance between your professional success and success you achieve as human being and different roles you play in personal life .

However, I also believe what that success is in your business when your own home life is in shambles

  • Is love really worth the time?

Yes, its and integral part of life

Have you ever taken credit for someone else’s hard work to gain the spotlight?

NO, all that credits which I got is of my own efforts.

The success, which came to you by taking credit of other’s hard work, will not remain forever. Moreover, I never call that success

three things in my journal


I remember few years back there was lot of challenging phase I encountered when I started my career as software professional.

I was finding it hard initially to cope up with work pressure and to maintain a balance between personal and professional life.

But one thing I always did was read. Read lot of books. I read Robin Sharma’s book “who will die when you cry”

Inspired by that what I did was to maintain a diary / Journal. And I keep writing in that .

And what do I write?? Here are few things

  • Task list for the next day :
  • tasklist

I know we all have this smartphone. but for me this works the best .

I write target dates of completion, and hit a tick mark as and when I complete. I have tried all the best possible to-do apps in android but for me paper works the best

Well some people feel maintaining 1 app is better to have book lost or paper scattered. Left to them.

  • Good Thoughts:

I love writing good quotes. and keep referring them as it gives me motivation sometimes .

Some of the quotes I recently wrote was .”My Life is my message “ – Mahatma Gandhi

I want the world sympathy in this battle of right against might –“ – Mahatma Gandhi

Keep the gold and keep the silver, but give us wisdom.” — Arabian proverb

This keeps me inspired .

  1. Lessons I learnt today:

This is one of the important things I do before I sleep. I will write the best thing which I did today

The next I write the lessons I learned today. May be good experience, may be bad. I feel without making mistakes you will never grow

I think of what’s the opportunity I can find in every challenging situation I face and what’s the missed opportunity that I could have utilized today.

So these are 3 main things I write in my journal . This has helped me significantly in my career and in my personal life.

Folk can let me know what has helped you grow in your career. What keeps you motivated?
