He is doing, so I too?

“When people are running, you should run in the middle”

It’s a proverb actually meaning ‘one must strive to assimilate to the norm’.

Maybe it’s another prejudice wall built in the minds of people asking to change yourself when everyone around you is changing. And people easily fall in to that just to avoid that “awkward” state of being odd.

But,

Why do you need to go with the normal flow? You are living in your priorities and comfort. Of course, sometimes your priorities may overrule your comfort. But as long as you are only setting up your priorities and defining your comfort, why should you run in the middle of the crowd and make yourself less creative?

Okay, if you still wish to run in the middle ( as you are afraid of oddness or uniqueness) while people around you are running, better not to let your feet run faster than your shoes and make yourself fall.

Ready for an argument?

Do argue if you are confident on returns, otherwise quietly quit and act on your own.

In our daily life, we all undergo different kinds of argument with our co-workers, family members, friends etc.

An argument could be constructive or destructive. Constructive is pretty clear, i.e. if we want to make something clarified we will argue and come up with outputs.

Destructive arguments happen more frequently or rather naturally. Somehow, we will be tempted to do it, forgetting about surroundings, outcomes etc. There is no value which we gain out of such argument, rather than simply losing our energy and finally ending up with some sort of negative vibrations around us.

If those assignments are of planned stuffs, normally we will have some expected results- may be positive or negative. For unplanned arguments, initially we won’t be realizing that we are falling in to it. But definitely after a moment, we will realize that our voice is increasing or temper is getting lost. And at the very next moment, just analyse the direction of argument. If you are sure of returns, continue the argument. Otherwise just pause, think and quit [ and yes go with your rights]

Do you have an I shaped or C shaped posture?

i or c 1
Some days back, I laid eyes on a girl sitting in my office bus. The girl was sitting so straight that was really catching my eyes. You may be wondering what is unusual in that. Now just try to sit or stand in the right posture for at least ten minutes. If you are able to maintain your posture for the ten minutes, then you can skip further reading. Otherwise you will understand why that girl caught my attention with her right position. And after noticing her, I just looked at other people sitting in the bus. I could see none sitting so straight as she was. Majority of people were either sleeping or in a relaxed position, totally sunk into their chairs. I analysed myself – anyway I was not sleeping then 🙂 . But was slightly in a ‘C’ shaped posture. I tried to sit in correct posture and determined to maintain that posture. And after sometime I lost in thoughts and again found myself in ‘C’ shaped posture. Then I understood that it’s not a simple task to maintain a good posture. And that girl was maintaining her position till the end of her journey.

Later on I met her in meeting rooms, in some coffee shops, in the lobby etc. Everywhere she was maintaining her good posture, with her heads up reflecting her confidentiality. I don’t know much about her personality and all. But I ‘m quite sure that ‘I’ position instead of ‘C’ position reveals her INDIVIDUALITY.

Good posture is nothing more than keeping our body in proper alignment. In fact posture is far more than looking confident and graceful. Sitting or standing or walking in the right position ensures that our body functions adequately.

Now it’s our turn.. Just think whether we want to have an ‘I’ posture or ‘C’ posture

Please Note: I simply used the alphabets ‘I’ and ‘C’ just to indicate right and curved positions respectively. There is nothing beyond that. In fact spine is said to have an ‘S’ shape and definitely not ‘I’ shape. Hence before practicing, need adequate knowledge on the proper posture as a good posture does not mean keeping our spine fully straight. We will become exhausted when we simply try to maintain our body straight and it will damage our spine. Instead need to understand that ‘S’ shape and practice accordingly.

One answer to many questions

General knowledge is also one of the papers in most government exams nowadays, whether technical or not. Couple of years back I was preparing for some technical exams. Obviously a tough time with the GK paper 😰, a tough time for my memory cells.

I am not that newspaper with bed coffe type of girl. (Yes, I do read and watch news, not boasting, really I do😉 when the morning sun is somewhere around the corner of my balcony)

But for GK preparation I had to to travel through many unknown paths in the world history, geography, politics and what not..Ahh..🙄

To add on, it was really hard to link the questions especially when they are staggered in many books. Say for example some where I learned who invented dynamite. And at a later point of time I came across another question, who was the benefactor of Nobel prize….both have the same answer, Alfred Nobel. But it would have been easier to link and learn if one see them at a go..isn’t it?

‘What if you have the answer first and probable questions for that answer as the bulleted sub entries’? This thought drove me to prepare this book in the form of ‘One answer to many questions’.

Thus I ended up in this book, my maiden venture.. with a new strategy to help your memory cells..
