The view itself made me more productive. Nature, itself, is a great healer.
Travel gives more ideas. Why not travel to nature, daily?
I was surrounded by a Punjabi family, who spoke to me in Punjabi. What a great way to assume 🙂 Btw, nicely generous people (and I will ignore the fact that they pushed their daughter to look up to me to see how I was working! Can you guys give yourselves a break? Dude, you were returning from Goa, why do you expect anyone to be working when they are returning from Goa?)
Half of the coach was empty. A good way to live luxuriously.
Did I tell you, my productivity was at its peak? None of my colleagues knew I was travelling (not to hide anything from them – we are anyway a chill lot), nor did I tell them – because work was getting done.
It is important to give yourself some treats of solitude.
Had some more reflections, however, for now I want to sleep. So, see you tomorrow! Good night 🙂
Sometimes all I have is sympathy for our parents’ generation.
Their parents saw the partition of the nation – leaving their country, their childhood, all that they called “theirs”, to come to another place just to survive.
In this need for survival, was the generation of our parents born.
Thus, the upbringing they got was of stress, not having enough time, and always lack of means.
Which is why our parents are the way they are. They have been conditioned so. They were never taught to love. Perhaps because they were never loved. And then one fine day, we pop up and expect them to be cool because that is what we are surrounded by – cool kids just like us.
Now that we know, we can still do what we want to do, while being respectful of who they are. It isn’t just for them, it is for the acknowledgement of how much they are trying to adapt, because they care for you:)
“I have dealt with so many bad clients.” “Not all clients provide creative freedom.” “I have the mind of steel now, while dealing with bad clients.”
Time and again, I see people documenting their bad experiences with their clients.
However, here is the truth: They weren’t bad. They were just being themselves.
Maybe they were not trusted with money so they thought it is okay to pass on that belief. Maybe their work never trusted so they did the same to you. Or maybe maybe maybe you made the mistake in choosing the wrong professional relationship.
If we are aware, we always know in pre signing up conversations, how the other person is going to turn out to be. If we truly look back at all our “bad” experiences, in our heart, we knew that before signing them up.
People rarely change. They just reveal themselves. It is up to us when we choose to see and when we choose to be blinded.
Off-late I have started teaching Maths to my nephew and niece. 9th standard kids. Unable to understand it in Zoom classes. So we do another Zoom whiteboard instead 🙂
Here’s what few days of teaching have taught me: Pros: 1. Be enthusiastic with kids and they will reflect that back every day. 2. If you clear their basics, they will we propelled themselves to go to RD Sharma (I know!) to do further. 3. Damn their innocent voice! Or maybe its my love for them <3
Cons: I discovered one about myself: To accept everyone at their own speed instead of expecting everyone to be at the same one.
Life gets so much better when you hang out with the right people, in whatever manner 🙂
