Your work..

is a clear reflection of your ability. I guess the ones that realize this and put cent per cent effort into everything they do are the ones who go farther in life. On a honest assessment, I probably do 20% of the things with that much effort and the results show… 🙂 I guess the […]

Standing out..

There are many popular sayings about standing out of crowds. Like the one I just saw, which went like – ‘You either stand out of the crowd or get lost within..’ I’ve wondered what this really means – as we could define dressing up in multi colored clothes in a formal board meeting would be […]

A learning a day..
