Plan and Organize

Need I say more? It's something we all know, yet,it's something we all like to crib about-lack of time..rather than our own lack of planning and organizing our day so that we have an excess of time on our hands!!:)
PS: I think I posted this earlier? Haha-no time to check!!

Peace-what a nice word...and, a word I love...I want peace everywhere-at work,at home,with friends,with enemies(if any), with myself...and, am always striving to live in the midst of peace.

So, what a pleasant surprise to read the above quote!! 

Need I say more? Except- Think Peace!

There once was a woman who woke up one morning,looked in the mirror,
and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today.'

So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up,looked in the mirror
and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.
'H-M-M,' she said, 'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today.'

So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up,looked in the mirror and noticed
that she had only one hair on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail. '

So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed
that there wasn't a single hair on her head.

'YAY!' she exclaimed.
'I don't have to fix my hair today!'

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary,
for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,

Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly.......

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

It's about learning to dance in the rain.

The price of excellence is discipline.  The cost of mediocrity is disappointment.

William Arthur Ward

Now,that's another inspirational though, if I may say so. Maybe you'll say-so what's new? That's what every management book says. But, stop. Think it over. How many times a day do you try and excel at whatever you're doing, and, how many times do you slump into mediocrity, due to factors both external and internal? From times a day, go to a week a month, a year...and, you'll realize that instead of grabbing at each opportunity to excel, you tend to veer towards mediocrity most of the time. 

Just think why this must be happening. You feel jealous of someone. You feel ignored at work. Or insulted at work / home. Or, you feel ostracized because someone in your family treats you shabbily. Maybe, over a period of time, you have just developed a low self of self-esteem and are sure that whatever you do, it is bound to fail. And, once such negativity seeps in, it's there to stay. Until, yes, until you make up your mind to change. And, don't try to change the world first. Change yourself. Internally. If you have a high I factor(Read'ego'), don't need not let people outside yourself know that you are trying to change, to move to excel. But,slowly and surely, make an effort. Chide yourself each time something you do is below your set level of excellence. And, soon, you'll find a mega change in you. And, with this change, will come a change in people around you. More respect, more friendliness and, of course, sometimes,more jealousy. But, treat all of it as a part of the game of life. A game which you have to win!!

Whew-need I say more? 

(Incidentally,I needed the above thoughts myself, today, for some, I guess the first one to get inspired by this post is lil me!!:)Cheerio and Happy Excellence!

Hi,all!!Been a mite busy-had gone on a flying visit to Baroda, just for a break...and, good fun it was,except for the 40 degrees temperature there.

Re the thought above-isn't it lovely? Each line expresses how we should be really treating each day as,without moaning and cribbing about something or the other...letting a little sun in,letting a little sun out...and, creating your own rainbows...probably finding the proverbial pot of gold at the end of each of them, provided you put in enough of a sincere effort. Yes,I do believe in miracles!!
