Two key missing prerequisites to reach my ‘Should-be’ state

FOCUS and  MOMENTUM

The two key elements which I lack or rather I would say, I often fail to persevere in most of the tasks I take up on my own.

I had applied them many times but still am failing to exploit them to my fullest advantage.

In fact I used to apply them earlier in my life and even very recently I applied them in one of the two important areas of my life to accomplish one of the most important missions of my life. And I accomplished it with flying colors. But still there is one more. only one more area where I have to apply them to prove myself what I am.

This is one of my new year resolutions as well.

So I am waiting for nothing. Am going to start off right away to accomplish the much aspired goals and to reap the much awaited benefits.

Finally fixed it!

Finally, after procrastinating for about many years ( from my adolescent days) , I fixed the braces to my teeth from the local orthodontist ( Dr. Vinod Krishnan of TDSG ) in Trivandrum.

He is quite cool and I liked the way he worked on my teeth.I paid 5K and another 5K is due over next 10 months.

Anyway am looking forward to improve my outlook 🙂 but it might take another 12 months to happen..I can wait..err..I have to wait and will wait.

when I started listening to my heart…

they wanted me to be according to their expectations…

they wanted me to listen what they say…

they wanted me to like what they show…

for all the above things to happen,

they wished me to be dependent on them…

but I just followed my heart. nothing else did I care.

finally, they came to my way 🙂

This reminded me one famous quote of Swami Vivekananda:

Yes! First they ridiculed me, then they opposed me finally now they accepted me!

My new year resolutions

Today on my way back to office from hospital in auto I just contemplated a bit and decided to come up with some resolutions for New Year 2007. Until now I had no habit of making resolutions. So what? I will start from next year. New Year, New Habits 🙂

I am just jotting down in the order they struck to my mind.

One: Increase financial aptitude.

Two: Start investing and saving (and hence Tax planning).

Three: Learn disciplined spending.

Four: Learn XML related technologies and take one external certification on XML.

Five: Take SCWCD certification.

Six: Read Wren and Martin High School Grammar book. There is a lot of room for improvement of my English grammar 🙂

Seven: Read, Read and Read. Lots of general books are pending.

Eight: Complete ‘Think without Ink’ book

Nine: Learn to drive bike comfortably in traffic with pillion rider. U know, I can go above 100 if I m the only one on the road 🙂

Ten: Just mind my own business.Dont waste time by involving in unnecessary matters and issues. Just be focused on my goals and aspirations.

Duh! That’s the list of 10 things not only I wish to do…but I will do in 2007.Well I am a good planner and that is not the end. I am a good executor too :-)Just recently I woke up and realized that the problem is not in execution but in planning. I don’t know why and what to do. If that is the case forget about how to do. It’s been exactly the case with me…but only till now. Certainly not from next year 🙂

Feeling-in-Love

Few days back when I was browsing one of my favorite sites on the internet: pravsworld dot com, I saw the following lines on Love.

Love is so powerful because being loved causes one to love oneself. Nothing
contributes to the self-image more than being loved by another. When the words ‘I love you’ are expressed to you for the first time, your world blossoms, your heart glows with inspiration, confidence and thoughts of the mountains you can move. It’s more than an emotional kick; suddenly you like yourself more than you have ever before.

That is exactly how I am feeling from the past two months and will continue for the rest of my life. The only way to know it is to experience it.
