lost

At every point in life, we have two major options. Right or wrong, wake up or sleep, take control or give control, JLO or Angelina...... I had two paths ahead of me too.... Write blog or Write appraisal document....and even though its not gonna pay, u know what I chose.

Its probly cuz at times you need to keep yourself before everything.... only then will you be satisfied, fulfilled. After a day's work, I wudn't mind giving some time to myself (er...constructive activities).
There's one advice my dad gave me some time back.... which kinda guides me when I'm in doubt.... he said "There will always be people in your team who work lesser than you, they don't matter. Don't be afraid of hard work."

See... this is why I wrote my last post in a hurry...cuz I knew the emotions would start to fade..... but I'm still gonna try.

Bored of working, a colleague and I registered ourselves for a debate last week. Little did I know it would result in a great saturday........
After 4 days of trying to find the perfect content, on the eve of the event, we got to know the real rules, when we called to confirm, and had to make some quick adjustments to what we were going to say....by next morning we had stopped trying to prepare.

I have a habit of doing that... if sumthing is so screwed up that I just can't do anything about it, I don't. That's the deal with problems... you either laugh about 'em or cry.... I choose the former, mostly.

I happened to listen to Harsha Bhogle's speech on excellence, which he delivered at IIM A . I suggest everyone listen to it. Its just so inspiring. Go here

"Always put yourselves in the company of people who are better than you, it'll help you grow." I really don't know why I put the line in quotes,cuz no one said the exact thing, but oh well......It was kinda like that at the debate.. and I liked it. I don't want to keep feeling I'm more proficient at presentations, cuz I'm not. There were so many people who spoke so well..... and honestly, it was great listening to the ideas.

Okay then, let's cut to the chase...no time to waste...back to my place..... no wait.......... that's Eminem..... :P

I know you've been wondering about the 'Void' that I mentioned
You know how you meet people who'm you want to keep talking to for no apparent reason? Well I met someone that day and it was...fun.

Partly cuz we lost at the debate and partly cuz I was dying there,wearing a tie, I went out of the hall early, only to finally loose touch.

No wonder I felt the void again..... and I haven't done justice to the buildup to this post cuz the feeling's faded now, lost amongst bosses, clients and collegues....

What exactly is the void? really,you have to ask?

I guess when we keep searching and don't get what the void is, actually creates the void! May be distraction may fill up the void...

"Always put yourselves in the company of people who are better than you, it'll help you grow." - Really liked the quote. What I've experienced is, if you don't put yourselves in the company of the people who are better than you, it would decelerate the growth for sure...

Hmm...
I had to re-read this post before commenting...
JLO n Angelina?
We wanna know your pick there...though I get hot n sultry is the verdict*didn’t expect you to side by a cute blonde anyways;-)*

Along with being super humble, it does not hurt if you admit or shout out loud once in a while “I am the best”
Reach out to people...
That void would get filled when you find the Miss Right...

Okay here this:
People say there’s no difference between the words COMPLETE n FINISH...
But there is...
Coz when you love the right one...you are COMPLETE...
And when you love the wrong....you are FINISHED!

*did that make much sense to your ‘void’ feeling? I don’t know really...but I hope the void fades soon:-)*
