Well, stress is such a popular word today. Isn’t it.

Everyone is talking about it. We love having it. We brag about it. We challenge others that we have it more than them. We think we are doing an incredible job living with it.

Ok.

Good for you.

If you…

At a recent workshop with young and promising individuals, I encountered conversations around some ways to make money, sure and quick.

Options discussed were [actual ones]:

  • “Food & Fashion Blogging”
  • “Taking paid surveys”
  • “Buying items from AliExpress and selling with decent margin”
  • “Business of birds”
  • “Investing in ICOs because giants…

I often write about kindness because I feel I write too little about it.

Kindness is the only currency that can make the world more livable.

Today, let’s explore different types of kindness… Yes, there are different types!

  • The Kindness of “please” & “thank you”.
  • The Kindness of “sorry” &…
  1. You are as good, as big, and as successful as your best client. Pick your clients wisely.
  2. Borrow money [if it’s unavoidable] to buy things that go up in value, but never to get something that decays over time.
  3. If you are lending money to someone who will use it…

Teams are magical. Organizations win when team wins.

Yet, it’s sad how less we work on building teams with shared meaning.

And working in teams is not easy. Not at all.

There is a constant hustle between tight deadlines, diverse personalities, personal biases, and clarity of direction.

Building High Performance…

Well sorry… but someone had to take this up.

Most workplaces are boring… most retail outlets are boring… most academic classes are boring… most families are boring… most trainings are boring… most blogs are boring.

And boring is not necessarily something so bad that one should get offended.

Boring is…

Well, to be honest, I’ve been into conversation where people are discussing what others deserve.

Such a tough task… isn’t it. Or rather an impossible one.

Who am I to decide what you deserve?

  • Dignity…
  • Grace…
  • Kindness…
  • Compassion…
  • Someone who is willing to listen…
  • A chance to share my thoughts…
  • Equal Opportunity…
  • Benefit of doubt…
  • Another chance…
  • Forgiveness.

What else others deserve…? Think Wisely.

If annual reviews are stressful for your managers and employees, what an opportunity wasted.

But then, most annual reviews that I’ve witnessed or have discussed about are not particularly useful for the employee or the boss.

Most performance reviews happen at the wrong time [financial year closing] and that adds…

Saying ‘please’.

Saying ‘thank you.

Saying “I was wrong, I’m sorry.”

Treating others with dignity and respect.

Giving someone the benefit of the doubt.

Seeing someone for the person that they are and can become.

Realizing that everyone has a story to be told, fear to be negotiated with and…
