Don’t blame Ego

So, I asked my ego, “Am I not right, good and just; shouldn’t I command my space and power.” My ego replied, “Perhaps you are and perhaps you should, but are you the only one?” 

It beats me beyond just surprise and despair when I see people around me who are bigger than me by age (more than by height and grey hair) viciously licking their egos to get back at you or never understanding the true meaning of letting go.

I walked down the memory lane to see why I was different. I wasn’t any different say 10 years ago. As I grew and met more people (thankfully a lot of interesting folks) I was humbled. I realised that I am but a mere speck in this world. Even when I shrunk my ecosystem to my family, friends and acquaintances, I personally had no chance, let alone my ego.

Side Note: There are more people out there are who are silently going about creating an impact (and positive one). If you can’t create one, don’t comment, specifically on others’ actions. 

Relationship vs Transactional

How do you interact with people?

Are you constantly looking at short term transactional associations or a long term relationship associations. In the current changing times, building any association based on a transaction might turn futile. Because such a model is so passé.

And this is so true right from your personal interactions to business models. Believe and invest in relationship backed business models over transactional models.

Next time when you are hiring your new recruit, let go off a couple of thousands if you see a long term value. Next time you meet a new acquaintance, read through this to see if you can foresee having a beer with him over sending an occasional Whatsapp message wishing him Diwali.

Side Note: When you believe in this, invest a margin of your profits, energy, time in nurturing this belief, because honestly, today’s entrepreneurs are expected to build beyond just a billion dollar business.

Wrong choice Made

First off, sorry for the long hiatus. Will surely try and kick this habit out.

Jumping right in, what do you when you realize you made a wrong choice. (Of course, its always a choice. Life always gives you a choice and it depends on what you choose.)

No, I am not talking about what would you do to come back to normalcy. You got a question in March and you failed. You get the same question in September. What will you do?

The answer to my first question (in bold) lies in what you learnt between March and September.

Side Note: Go make those wrong choices as long as you are learning. They are probably your best teachers.
