To shake or not to shake & what does a handshake say about you as a person?

Now that’s a big title for a post now isn’t it? Well I had to write the whole thing to make you realize the importance of the whole thing and the connection it has with you as an individual. You know when you are meeting someone for the first time, you always shake hands or say a hello (of course before Corona times shaking hands was so normal). So when you stretch your hand to shake...

Your fear of losing will not allow you to take risks

There are certain times when it’s ok to have doubts about a certain situation or an idea that you are having. But when such doubts keep repeating themselves, you will fall into a trap which will only make you fearful of absolutely everything and anything that come across your path. Let’s say you are about to make a business deal with someone, but you are scared that they will con you...

Don’t go with the flow

Someone once said that only dead fish go with the flow, and boy what an amazing piece of advice that is. If we look around us, we often hear people saying that you just can’t be different because it’s not ok to be the odd one out. What will everyone else think or say? Yes, I agree that sometimes it seems awkward and scary to try a different approach to reach a specific goal. Obviously...

Value your time or else..

How often do you sit and not do anything? How often do you just wander around on the internet trying to spend your time and end up using a few good hours from your day on useless surfing, without getting any smarter than before? Time and money! I feel that people who tend to put time and money in the same sentence don’t really realize the true value of it. Money is something that comes and...

3 tips on having a better day at work

Since most of us spend a lot of time at work, it’s probably good to get around this thing in the best way possible. Lot of people just wave this whole thing off by saying “It’s only work”, well no, it’s your life, so make the best of it. 1. Be kind There is no shortage of rude and obnoxious people in this world, so be a bit different. Be kind and nice to those around...

Three tips to a successful product

In the past few years i have been working as the Project and Product Manager of several major portals, or products in other words. I launched a major lookalike site which was later sold to a high profile ISP and then I built onto an online radio, CrazeFm, which within three years won the best and most popular radio award. The ups and downs have taught me as to how to take a product and work on it...

3 tips on having a successful meeting

In the hectic world we are living in, we have to really put our foot down and make sure that the time we are using on a baseless meeting could probably be used to do some work. If one has one hour fixed for a daily meeting, that’s 5 hours a week, 22 hours a month, which is 264 hours a year!! A perfect status meeting should be around 1-2 minutes of talk time for each attendee, everything...

Talking on the phone

Being from the world of radio, I feel that one can use their voice to present a whole scene or story to thousands at one go. The voice is such a powerful tool that if one uses it properly, one can portray the right feelings to the other party without coming face to face. Have you ever spoken to people who make you feel as if they are smiling while talking? What about those that talk and it feels...

Do you hate your job?

This is what most of the people say when they are starting their conversation after a sigh, which sounds like as if someone has taken all the air out of their lungs.   Remember that you are living in a world where billions of people die just because they can’t manage to get clean water, let alone a few grains of food. You might be one of those lucky people who can afford internet...
