Im sold....

Had another workshop on communication skills today..It went on for like hours and i was hardly interested..
And it wasnt because it was boring....but by now...i have attended almost a 100 such workshops...and they just talk the same thing in a different way....

I liked the way the guy said "Im SOLD".
He was talking about customer satisfaction and how if you satisfy even 3 outa 10 expectations of a customer...the customer is SOLD to you...

There is so much deeper thought to these words..."Im SOLD"....It potentially means you have been taken over by something...and you are theirs forever....
It also means that since you are sold...the person might have fooled you in some way or the other...because...after all he is doing business...and business always has PROFIT...

This phrase reminded me of the episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S...where after Chandler has got a date...he comes to his friends and says....

"PRICK A FORK IN ME....IM DONE!!!"

love these phrases....they are short....but they mean so much....

Being in control....

I have always believed that money will always return when you give with a heart...and dont think much about it..
Yes...it definitely doesn't mean that you spend aimlessly...
I value the importance of money...coz i know how much and what it takes to have your monthly salary credited in the bank account.
I pity those who don't really value their pockets...Coz...maybe they have never had to...but I feel...There comes a time in everyones life when MONEY really matters....


Caught up with some old engneering college friends today...
Its always a great feeling...to meet some of the most amazing people in my life....Somehow...Life without them is incomplete...
I knocked Unmeshs door...and was waiting for him to answer it...
And i remembered all the fun we had during project meetings and the occasional no reason night outs....
ahhh....it was sooo good!!

Harry and me were discussing today...about how we are 23...and how it sounds blodddy OLD!!!!
lol
And he brought up a very good point...
"You never ever thought right....that when you are 23...your life will be like this...."

"Yeahh....Not even in the wildest of my dreams!!! I mean...lets just not discuss whether it is good or bad....right or wrong....It is what it is....but somehow....I thought...life at 23 will be...well...
MORE IN CONTROL!!!"

...Think...



Have no shame in being kind and gentle, but if the time comes in your life to kill for success,
kill and have no regret.
In the time of your life, L I V E — so that in this wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world,
but shall smile to the infinite delight and the mystery of life.

William Saroyan


The above words seem hard hitting....but they leave a state of mind thats worth thinking over....

Disconnected.

There are times in your life...when the best of things just go wrong...
Ask me how to mess up a perfectly natural and normal presentation...!!

Had this task of talking for 5 mins and i sucked...!
Such things never happen to me...I guess i needed this...and im glad this happened...soon enuf...

I have been feeling a bit disconnected these days...
I dunno what it is...if its something i am missing right now...or the want of something i don have...just something...disconnected (cant find any other word for it)

I remember Amey asking me the other day....

"Whats wrong dude?"
"nothing man...nothin at all....",I said.

Amey looked at me.
"You know dude...i know you from day one of college...and u were not like this when u started...You wanted to bring in people...Now....I just feel you are running away from everyone..."

I just thought at what he said....Its not that im running away....But yes...there is something missing....something is not right...I feel the need for more...

Its perfect...in a way....but not "right"!

I remembered what Soniya said yesterday...and i have been thinking about it...about what i should do...after all...Shes always right when she advices...!

Jobs ahead...

The day started today with a speech by Dr.Kiran Bedi on leadership...

There she was...this woman...talking about her life....about achievement...about humility...duty...about being a leader!

She was inspiring....to the limit that I almost had tears in my eyes when i could relate some teachings to my life...

Some things and words hit you hard sometimes....its like someone just opened up your dreams and placed it right before you for analysis!

Its amazing how good leaders inspire...they help you DREAM.....

The day ended with another speaker...Some alumni from the college....and well....he wasn't impressive at all....
Thats the difference i guess....
All people talk....but only a few INSPIRE!!!
