#GrowMore This week: #MondayMotivation

Whenever you see that you are in a majority, first thank but then start reflecting on what went wrong that you are here. Success is for those who go to the uncharted, the unknown, and not where there is a majority. #MondayMotivation #GrowDaily

Chastise thy fate

Team Indus is an inspiration in form of someone somewhere trying to do things differently. For a nation that takes pride in being the back office of the world and is often reckoned as master of imitation (whatever happened to IP rights and such), Team Indus had put a whiff of fresh air.

With its race to moon as part of Google Lunar Launch competition, Team Indus is the single Indian entry and has faired till the point of last three.

Its disheartening to learn that they may have withdrawn from the competition now and it is down to a company from Israel and another from Japan to grab the coveted prize.

What is even more disappointing is the fact that Team Indus had to supposedly withdraw from the race for want of funds. ‘Very Disappointing’!!!

Its would be a shame that imitation businesses in e-commerce space or cab hailing/sharing or just scanners of menu cards have been able to suck large amount of funding dollars, just to burn them in name of customer acquisition cost; while engineering innovators and marvel companies like Team Indus are failing to get enough support.

One can only chastise thy fate to be witnessing such death of innovation.

Lets hope the news proves to be untrue.

To act is the easy part, the ground is open and you can continue to go your way. However, before you start acting, dream big first. This dream will decide where will you go, when and how far… #MondayMotivation #GrowDaily

Veracious

Find the common thread here –

What we read… is it true anymore?

Facebook, the social media bigwig, is facing a huge credibility problem, with a lot of fake news on its primary delivery form of Whatsapp and the secondary channel of Facebook.  This is some impact –

Food that we eat is it pure anymore?

Food is no longer the purity that we once assumed. If you wish more purity then you need to pay more – organic or cleaner or farm produced or some other fancy term to gain more share of your wallet. Within the reach of the common arm is having some problem:

  • Maggi noodles banned due to chemical adulteration
  • Milk cows milk adulterated due to cows eating garbage
  • Coconut oil mixed with water

Its the profits or just poor intentions or lousy execution. One doesnt know. It just happens.

Time for the veracious business paradigms to take center stage. Let the purity prevail over greed. Let the positive prevail over negative.

Let the real prevail over fake.

New technological initiatives are making this possible at least in the digital world. Artificial intelligence and content screening through monitored filtered make it possible. Lets brace for the better setting!

Being Formless

Assess this –

‘If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.’

Its the onset of ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ (1951). These lines characterize the intriguing novel that unfolds. They are straight, challenging and clear in purpose. They tell there is nothing saucy… They give a glimpse of what to expect… Superior yet intriguing, wanting yet incomplete, straight yet compelling.

Analyse this –

“Be extremely subtle even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.”

These are the lines on formlessness from ‘The Art of War’ by Sun Tsu. With these lines, the great General advises to take no form and surprise your opponent. If the opponent doesn’t know your form, it doesn’t know where your vulnerabilities lie. Don’t expose your weakness. Don’t expose your strength. Don’t expose your form. They tell there is nothing saucy… They give a glimpse of what to expect… Superior yet intriguing, wanting yet incomplete, straight yet compelling.

Identify this formlessness in this year. For formlessness is the attainment of mystery. The mystery that shrouds others. Obscurity that mystifies.

Mystification leads to the manifestation of advantage. So be formless.

New Year 2018

#GrowMore This week: #MondayMotivation #SeasonsGreetings

As the world sublimes into the joy of happiness,

The glowlights tinkle with more brightness.

Cities and villages in western lands are covered with snow,

They eat, they make merry and their faces just glow.

We think and believe of what went by,

It’s one more opportunity to forgive and make happy those who cry.

We live in testing times where head is heavier than body,

Alone are people usually as they have their machine and need nobody.

At least now, as we come closer and rejoice,

It is these moments that we should more often recount and revise.

As we look at the tasty food and so lovely faces,

We need to forget the heavy days and restless phases.

We do the numbers and we do the math,

We believe in building models right from scratch.

We trade our currency for a bit of coin,

We peep into a world what the bots define.

We must not judge, become more compassionate and treat people fairly,

We must do aspire to make that difference and GROW DAILY.
