Another Blog Started

Just checking out things, when I noticed that I had registered a blog at WordPress a year before. So, I just played with it and got an idea for its own use as a separate blog.

This blog is all about personal experience which I had experienced. So I thought, it would be better if I have a separate blog just for my animations, where I can have my progress going.

Check it out, and let me know what you think of it:

Peace :)

Can you take it?

Hey there,

Just being busy lately. Haven't find any time for my poor blog. However, I will write a quick note on, "Can you take it?" Don't know why I wrote this subject, I just open the compose page and wrote it. Anyway, here it is.

Life is full of opportunities, but we need to recognize it. And stepping on it by seeing our surroundings. Some opportunities are straight forward and some break you up. Its all about how much you can take it and how long can you hold on to it. Are you ready for that step and give all what it takes? Are you thinking, what will happen? Is it just an opportunity without a risk or a risk, which is a path to an opportunity?

Its tough to figure out but you will never know if you don't jump and give it all what it takes. Believing on your dream and opportunity, which you are going for and believing on yourself, will make it work. Think every event as an opportunity to something.

A bird can't fly high until it pushes its flaps hard enough.

It is just a small thought, which I want to share.

Thank you.

Enjoy ;)

A human life consist of many things. Without a goal, life is meaningless. Goal without any planning is hard to get. To achieve your dream or passion, you have to work for it. Try to see your life with handful of opportunities. Every single individual in this world have an aim of his or of others. Opportunities are right their laying always in front of you. Some can recognize it immediately, some don't. We have to see that how far such an opportunity can take closer to your goal. Sometime we took a long route, but its not bad to take. It will bring so much experience on your destination.

Just remember, work for your goal for a while and enjoy your hardships. Make yourself devoted to your aim. When you get down, try to motivate yourself. You should not depend on others. Your aim, your goal, your responsibility.

These were my 2 cents of advice on goal. Hope you get it :)

Say NO and feel great!

By Shalu Wasu, 30th December 2008

Saying no is perhaps the most important productivity tool that exists. Saying no is an art. It is also perhaps the most difficult thing to do for most people. I used to dread the occasions where I knew I will have to say no and I used to prepare for such situations for days. Now, I almost look forward to saying no to people and I actually enjoy the process! Find out how the change happened.

1. You are doing everyone a favour by saying no.

Whenever you are saying NO to someone, remember that it is for their benefit! By saying no, you are

Giving the person an opportunity to look for someone who can do the job better.

Avoiding negative feelings about the person.

2. Visualize the alternative (to saying no) in vivid detail.

You will feel bad and will curse yourself for accepting the task.

You will do a bad job.

You will hate the person for putting this on to you.

The person will hate you for doing a bad job.

You should not have said yes, if you were not going to do a good job, the person will tell you later.

3. Remember what happened the last time you said yes!

4. Use the situation as an opportunity to build a better relationship.

If you like the person and don’t want to burn your bridges then having to say no can actually be a great opportunity to improve your relationship with this person. This is very much possible, provided you take the extra effort to honestly explain to the person why you cannot do this and why you value the relationship and that you really believe that by doing a half-baked job you will be hurting the relationship.

5. Enjoy!

Sometimes, saying no is just pure joy! The joy gets magnified if you do not provide any reasons at all!

6. Go overboard explaining why you cannot.

The explaining might make the person feel better than if you had said yes!

7. Use the big–picture test.

Focus on the big picture. What are your ultimate goals and objectives? Is this task in sync with your goals? If not, just say no and rest assured that you have made the correct decision.

8. Use a bit of cunning if you need to (in this order).

a. Negotiate. If you can take this off my plate, then I can do that. Or if I can get resources for this, then I can do that.

b. Postpone. Let me think about it and get back to you on email.

c. Deflect. I cannot do this BUT I can help you with that.

d. Bluff. Carry around your dummy calendar (choc a bloc of course) and show it to the person!

e. Throw the ball back. Ask for help in deciding how you should fit in the new task on the list of priorities (especially if it is your boss).

f. Lower expectations. Point out that you might be able to do everything, but not to the usual high standards that are expected.

g. Googly or curve ball. Say yes, then call back or SMS in the next 10 minutes to say why you cannot do it. Why 10 minutes? Well because that is the average time required for homo sapiens to come up with a good excuse.

h. Scare them off if nothing works! It’s just that I have this crazy flu and I don’t want you to get it

9. If they get really pushy, switch gears and think of it as a game.

There is no way you can say yes NOW! Smile and tell them so.

10. And before we end, here are a few statements for you to practice!

  • I have another commitment.
  • I have no experience with that.
  • I know you will do a wonderful job yourself.
  • I am in the middle of several projects.
  • I am not comfortable with that.
  • I need to leave some free time for myself.
  • I would rather decline than do a mediocre job.
  • I am not taking on any new responsibilities.
  • I would rather help out with another task.
  • Let me hook you up with someone who can do it.
  • I am not the most qualified person for the job.
  • I do not enjoy that kind of work.
  • I do not have any more room in my calendar.
  • I hate to split my attention among projects.
  • I need to focus more on my personal life.
  • I need to focus on my career right now.
  • Some things have come up that need my attention.
  • This really is not my strong point.
