The Path Lies Within…

February 14, 2011

The path lies within……..

If eternal Bliss is destination, then the path lies within. You need to surrender to your inner self to conquer the world

You cannot seek an acquaintance with the world when your inner self is a stranger to you.

Peace of mind is something everyone aspires for, and yet nobody seems to know when, where, and how to get it. Over a period of time, term “peace of mind” has undergone a transformation from a qualitative entity to a quantitative entity. People now a days speak in terms of “some peace of mind” to describe their aspiration or achievement. It can no longer be equated with the total tranquility of mind and the body. Peace of mind or lack of it can be the result of conquest over or conflict with self.

“In the final analysis, the hope of every person is simply peace of mind.”

Body tattoos are exhibit, Mind tattoos are they inhibits ????

May 8, 2009

internet marketing

Few more University degrees than others does this make you a better educated person than others?
Humility born out of knowledge is divine,
Confidence born out of knowledge is good welcome and acceptable.
Arrogance born out of knowledge is Ignorance magnified.
Ignorance is trait born out of captive mind set.
Kupastha Mandukam are we one?? (Frog in well)
As Intellectuals, well we are not expected to be one.

Mind tattoos, the responsible factors for captive mind set
People are led by the captive mindsets which lead to inhibition and inaction
Mind tattoos, the responsible factors for captive mind set
“Dr Norman Vincent Peale the famous author was walking by a tattoo shop when a confused looking young man came out of the shop with a tattoo in his right arm that read “Born to Lose”. Dr Peale asked the tattoo artist about it and the tattoo artist replied…. “ I did ask the young man if he was sure that he wanted to state “Born to lose” in his arm and the young man was pretty stubborn in that. A surprised Dr Peale asked the tattoo artist – “Is’nt that surprising?” For which the artiste replied “Not really! Much before he tattooed it on his arm, he has firmly tattooed it in his brain, and his body tattoo act is just a reflection of his mind tattoo”.””

But what we tattoo on any part of the body for others to see is not as important as what we tattoo in our minds…. And positive, successful, energetic mind tattoos are a must to attain success…
So, it should be our conscious and subconscious endeavor to keep tattooing our mind with thoughts that are ONLY about winning, what we want be, want to reach, want to achieve, that perfect day as desired, ALL THAT IS SOUGHT BY US FOR A GREAT LIFE.
A few degrees less or more doesn’t decide whether you are intelligent, Creative leader

Creative people are full of curiosity.

Creative people are wonderstruck. They are tickled by the newness of every moment. They have lots of questions. They keep asking what, why, when, where and how.
A questioning mind is an open mind. It is not a knowing mind. Only an open mind can be creative. A knowing mind can never be creative.
A questioning stance sensitizes the mind in a very special way and it is able to sense what would have been missed otherwise.

Problems & the blame game
When there is a problem, some people can be seen wringing up their hands. Their first reaction is to look for someone to blame. Being faced with a problem becomes a problem. Such people can be called problem-averse.
Intelligent people, on the other hand, are problem-friendly. They just roll up their sleeves when faced with a problem. They see problems as opportunities to improve the quality of life. Being faced with a problem is never a problem.

Value ideas and suggestions from the colleagues

Creative people realize the value of an idea. They do not take any chance with something so important. They spot an opportunity in the ideas suggested by their colleagues.

Delegate and define responsibility to make them accountable & responsible.

Delegate and clearly define responsibilities to each member of the team. Allow them controlled discretion & inculcate a sense of responsibility & accountability in them. A responsible and winning team can only make you a winning leader.

Visible enthusiasm for achieving set goals

Effective leaders are enthusiastic about their goals. This enthusiasm works as fuel for their journey, propelling them to their goals. This is also extremely contagious and spreads fast in the team.

Perennially dissatisfied.

Leaders are acutely aware of their dissatisfactions and unfulfilled desires. However, this awareness does not frustrate them. Their frustration never reflects in their behavior with colleagues. As a matter of fact, they use this awareness as a stimulus to realize their dreams.

Be an optimist, regardless of adversities & constraints.

Creative people generally have a deeply held belief that most, if not all, problems can be solved. No challenge is too big to be overcome.
This doesn’t mean they are always happy and never depressed. They do have their bad moments but they don’t generally get stumped by a challenge.

Creative people make positive Judgment.

A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn. It can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a right man’s brow – a businessman Charles Brower

The ability to hold off on judging or critiquing an idea is important in the process of creativity. Often great ideas start as crazy ones – if critique is applied too early the idea will be killed and never developed into something useful and useable.

This doesn’t mean there is no room for critique or judgment in the creative process but there is a time and place for it and creative people recognize that.

Academics excellence should not bring about arrogance of Endemic proportions

Your having more knowledge than your colleagues is the most natural thing and that should not make the other person less of a human being. If that knowledge gives you a sense of arrogance and self righteousness, You are endemic diseased get yourself cured immediately. Your superior knowledge should be used to help build ladders out of ignorance for lesser qualified colleagues & students.

Great people are good at reframing any situation.

Reframes are a different way of looking at things. Being able to reframe experiences and situations is a very powerful skill.
Reframing allows you to look at a situation from a different angle. It is like another camera angle in a cricket match. And a different view has the power to change your entire perception of the situation.
Reframing can breathe new life into dead situations. It can motivate demoralized teams. It helps you to spot opportunities that you would have otherwise missed.

It does not mean that excellent academics make you less educated. It only means that excellent academics & education are not interrelated directly or inversely. We had great academicians who were also excellent human beings. Dr. Rejendra Prasad, Dr. Radhakrishanan, Dr. Zakir Hussain, and Dr. Kalam. Remember our word action directly impacts the destiny of the future generations. Our actions should help to mould the youth to become future leaders and fulfill Dr. Kalam’s dream to lead India to lead the world by 2020.

Best wishes,

Adversity An Excellent Opportunityto Deliver

March 24, 2009

Adversity brings the best in human beings. We have seen that happening at many organizations. With less manpower, and reduced financial inputs, leaders are delivering, and accomplishing the set goals.
It is quite clear that adversity has converted itself into an opportunity for excellence.
Not knowing what we do not know has often been the bane of many a leader. and has resulted in precious man hours being wasted in the pursuits with no logical conclusions, depriving the knowledge area of the precious time for task accomplishment.
Concentrating on the knowledge area helps us to set an example for our team members, and motivate them for higher achievements. Since this is the time when organizations are expecting more output with reduced man power. It is imperative that managers bring about small changes in their attitudes and work pattern.
The important things to know are
1. Know that you must execute
2. Know what you cannot do
3. Know what you can do

Shyamsunder Panchavati

When clichés rhetoric’s fail, It is human values that win you hearts and bring Transformations.

March 23, 2009

Qualities that make a good leader

It is important to take a personal and active look when setting the goals. Get into the shoes of the team members. Think analyze & understand the likely thought process of the team members the moods the attitudes, the fears, the resentments. Allow them to express & justify. Understand and agree with their justification. Bring them into totally non combative mood. Appeal to their human side.

One thing every one appreciates in a leader is honesty. One thing everyone hates in a leader is duplicity. If duplicity is a part of professional leadership, then it is better to be a personal leader than a professional one.

Explain to them how each member can help save a few jobs, or create a few jobs at the junior most level by reaching the goals. How many more can he help create by exceeding it?
Arouse the philanthropist in him and see how he suddenly becomes pro-active in goal setting process. The leader has to relate to the team directly intuitively & emphatically .the focus should clearly be on the substance of the decision including the repercussions.
Implementation & Work.
It is important to understand that every member has his own approach to goal attainment listening to them in fact increases the options for the leader. So long as they go with the organizational policy, ideas should be encouraged. The best way of making most of the opportunity is accommodating the members thinking, even if it involves a little risk. This will ensure an involvement of heart soul & body into the task.
Human values require the leader to have a sense of self, an ability to profoundly alter the human, emotional, and economic relationship, the ability to feel separate from the organization. Here the order of preference is the team member, team, and organization.
I know the management purists may not agree with me. But as I said, when nothing works, It is the human values that get you through.
Best wishes,
Shyam

Development Dynamics, Embrace the culture to Embrace the Cause

March 23, 2009

Many development agencies from America & Europe are doing extraordinary work in many strife torn countries of Africa and Asia. There well intentioned efforts are often met with resistance from the populace, prisoners of in age old culture and customs. They consider any community development activity to be an encroachment into their well protected domain.
Any community development or capacity building activity has to be conceived staying within and respecting the cultural parameters. Cause can never be divorced from the culture. Africa & Asia are comprised of many religious and non-religious groups. The major religious cultures are Muslim, Christians (Roman Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Anglican and others), ethnic religionist, non-Christian, Hindu and Baha’i.
If you are working on Gender Based Violence eradication program, or HIV awareness program, you need to be very careful. Each religion, each ethnic group needs a different approach to tackle the same problem. Some groups may not be open to outsiders redressing their problems. They have their own inbuilt system of redressing grievance. Some other groups may not like awareness programs being conducted for their girls, & women. Some Muslim groups strictly implement Shariat rules which place restrictions on the movements & dress code for women.
It is always better to meet and take into confidence the tribe or village head and involve him in the activities, and follow his advice. Many organizations which haven’t followed this have faced revolt from the communities and consequently failed in their programs.
I feel that before embarking on a program of rehabilitation. It is always necessary to make a detailed study about the region the culture the people. The geographic and demographic intelligence play an important role in the success of any capacity building and development program.

Healthier Water Means Children Can Go to School

March 19, 2009

Healthier Water Means Children Can Go to School

I am pleased to share with you an article about the work done by the development Agency Outreach International to change the lives of children specially the girl child.

Thanks for reading this,

Shyam

Imagine: keeping your children out of school so they can walk miles a day to the nearest stream to get water, filling large containers and carrying them on their heads or backs. Then, although you have water, there’s no purification or treatment so the desperately needed water also makes your family sick from water-borne diseases. It’s an endless crushing cycle.

Healthier Water Means Children Can Go To School

In Malawi, a small country in southern Africa, there is no infrastructure here to process clean water from streams and creeks. And without sanitation systems, toilets, and plumbing the waste from people and animals in the forests eventually ends up in the water.

“The people worked together for a long-term solution: installation of 12 wells benefiting 8500 people in five villages, reducing water-borne disease by 60%.”

Chiwa was only 7, the oldest girl of the youngest four children, but strong enough to go to the creek everyday with other children from the village. She hoped to go to school this year, but then, who would get the family water? Her family needed it for washing, cooking, drinking. She was the one to go.

So four miles there and back, carrying the heavy water. Then the water has to be boiled for drinking, cooking, washing. If it isn’t, and sometimes even when it is, water-borne disease is present, and the results are diarrhea, worms, dehydration, cholera, and worse.

When Chiwa got home after fetching the water, her friends were coming home too, from school. She wanted to be in school. Some children had bright new uniforms, and much to talk about. Someday maybe she could go… that’s what she wished for many months ago.

Today Chiwa goes to school, a very different life for this little girl. Outreach International trained facilitators to help people help themselves, and people in the village have begun to turn things around. The village identified the lack of infrastructure sanitation and water systems that were keeping them sick and keeping their children out of school.

The people worked together for a long-term solution: installation of 12 wells benefiting 8500 people in five villages, reducing water-borne disease by 60%. Installation of two shallow wells and one borehole further reduced disease in one village by 55%. Thirty-six toilets were installed in homes and between homes reducing the need for people to use the bush or forest. All to build a system of health and well-being for thousands of residents, and hundreds of children who now didn’t have to spend all day hauling bad water. Now Chiwa spends her days in school.

Outreach International’s work creates healthier lives for children like Chiwa and their families. Support sustainable good today

Despite High Positions & Perks , Executives feel professionally dissatisfied & unfulfilled. Why???

March 13, 2009

Despite their lofty job titles and impressive pay, many high-achieving executives feel professionally dissatisfied and unfulfilled, and it is not surprising. Looking back, they wish they’d accomplished more or even chosen a different career altogether. Often they feel trapped in their jobs (most of them do).

Let us examine why people arrive at this impasse, & offer them guidance on how to break through it and reach their full potential.

Many people feel like victims when, in fact, most career wounds are self-inflicted. Taking control begins with understanding yourself: seeking frank feedback about your strengths and weaknesses from colleagues above and below you, and figuring out what you truly enjoy doing.

That goal isn’t about getting to the top. Rather, it’s about taking a very personal look at how you define success in your heart of hearts, and then finding your own path there. To discover your way, you need to step back and reassess your career, recognizing that managing it is your responsibility.

Every individual has his understanding and definition of success. It is not very surprising to find that different coaches or mentors have different perspectives and road maps for success. So other people’s understanding of success should not be a guide for you in selecting career choices and goals

Next, it’s critical to identify the three or four tasks central to your business and make sure you excel at them. It keeps you focused, it is easy to concentrate, monitor, evaluate, and affect periodic path correction as per need. Otherwise, success is likely to elude you or may not be to the extent you expect.

Once you’ve chosen the right enterprise, you must show character and leadership. Great executives put the interests of their company and colleagues ahead of their own. They’re willing to speak up, even to voice unpopular views. Many managers hit a plateau because they play it too safe. It should be a correct mixture of discretion and valor. And this mixture differs from case to case, opportunity to opportunity & situation to situation. But those willing to take calculated risks, identify their dreams, develop the skills to realize them, and demonstrate courage will find fulfillment. They may hit bumps along the way, but the resolve & application will guide them through success.

Best Wishes,

Shyam
