Expanding the horizons

This is something that I wanted to do for a long time, and finally have set my mind on doing this.

I want to have 3 more blogs: (For those who dont want to remember the URLs - Click on "view complete profile" and you can see the blog links.

This blog will be the vehicle on which I will gyan ride. I hope that this turns to be an interactive blog, where I will attempt to answer any questions posed in the work / professional / etc realm.

I want to get back into a thinking groove. Thinking is what defines me.

Reasoned Belief
I am not a religious Joe, but deeply spiritual. Being born into a religion, we live by it without questions; I believe most of us have never taken time to understand what we believe! The result – if someone even tries presenting a different view, we shut the doors fiercely protect something we have NOT taken time to understand!

I am a Christian by choice and not because I was born into a “Christian Family”. Here is my attempt to say – Why I believe in what I believe!

Tickle Thyself

Need say more? Just laugh!! :P

Emotional Intelligence Quotient

The Reason I post this - "Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar. - HAHAHAHAHHA

Your EQ is 180
50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!

71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.

91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.

111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.

131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.

150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

..and I am happy!

In the running mills of time, engaged in an endless race to outperform yourself, and missing out the beautiful scenery on the road by being more bothered about the time lost in braking, comes a pause…

A pause where time stands still, every worry disappears, feel so happy and contented… and you wonder why?

When I think, it knocks on me that – today is one of those days, when I am so relaxed, content with myself, happy for everything I have & dont, and live without any expectation!. I want to write a lot, but some things just need to be indulged and lived ...and Thank You Sam for making the morning so wonderful.

…and I am Happy!

Are the lines really that blurred?

This blog is dedicated to the “warrior of cognition” – Sarbani. One with whom I could not agree on anything professionally, but still a good friend.

Cognition” - I say is one bad word!

Coming from the world I lived for the last 5 yrs of work – that’s one risky statement to make - enough to piss off someone who would swear by the word and can kill to retain its meaning – You see that’s how I define Cognition.

We continually measure everything against some arbitrary line that exists (don’t know where), but it does!, and we have our reasons for the same. Assuming that this line exists, are the lines really that blurred?

I guess not – No line is blurred, it either because we see (focus) past the line or before that line, that the line per se appears blurred. For Example – if I were to say – that “cognition is a bad word!”, where does it become bad or good? The way I see as being blurred is “the psychological result of perception and learning and reasoning”

So, we make the lines blurred bases on “the psychological result of perception and learning and reasoning”. BTW – That’s the definition of cognition.

Need say more? – Yes, “Cognition” - I say is one bad word!

I feel @ peace and am happy :)

a small sms extract for the smile today -

ww - Good Morning Sweetie ... there is a smile missing in the office today...

Doing over being

We are living today in a culture of Doing over Being. We rush from one thing to the next, from one achievement to another - often not so much enjoying our achievements as registering them and hopping to the next task - never stopping to take a step back, look at our life as a whole; examine it; reflect on the general shape and direction we would like to give it; take a deep breath and be.

This obsession with doing is something of a cultural neurosis: by doing and doing and doing, we escape from being - we do our lives away. It is this meaningless rushing about, without any thought given to any final ends or general purpose that we should condemn.

Wondering who penned this - Socrates - Somewhere in the BC. Sounds like he wrote now!
