My chat with Barkha Dutt – the Editor, Anchor-Journalist at NDTV

BDUTT: Funny how its all unfolding on twitter – from IPL rows to marriage blues. New confessional culture of India? or clever marketing?!

DonnKabiraj @BDUTT: It is both! It is just re-kindling the age-old concept – ‘tell the truth (fact) anyway!’…you always stand to gain going forward.

BDUTT @DonnKabiraj: Thats a good way to put it.

Wonders Take Time

Robin Sharma, the Author of books like ‘The Monk who Sold his Ferrari‘; ‘The Leader Who Had No Title’  & also a Leadership Advisor to many FORTUNE 500 companies says:

“Wonders Take Time”

 

Just came back to my hotel in Agra after watching the sun set on The Taj Mahal. Hard to find words for the beauty I just witnessed. 

So many ideas came to mind as I sat there. One in particular – just as it took 20,000 human beings 22 years to build the Taj Mahal, great dreams take a ton of time. Be patient. Move your dreams forward – block by block. With fierce devotion and a commitment to excellence, wonders really will show up. I know – I saw one today.

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil. – James Allen

Importance of Balance in Life

Just the other day when I was searching for a particular book in my bookshelf, I had suddenly bumped into this book called: ‘Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas’ by James Patterson. I was then able to recollect that one of my co-passengers who was sitting just next to me in a flight from Chennai to Dubai many years back had simply gifted me this book while we were parting our way from the airport at the end of our flight. I then thought of reading this book leisurely when I get back to India; but it had never happened in past many years until I discovered it on my bookshelf few days back.

This is actually a novel written by James Patterson in 2001 which throws vital light on the importance of balance within one’s life. The story of the ‘five balls’ in this novel leaves a significant impression behind. Let me share a glimpse of it here today.

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, Friends and spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the Air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back.

But the other four Balls – Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it”.

Shorter-Working-Week (less working hours per day) can actually help us to optimize our productivity and live a quality life!

As a result of industrial capitalism, like work, time has also become a commodity now. But shorter working hours does not mean less productivity. In fact, studies suggest that those who work shorter hours are more productive. It could also bring parity in the society by creating more jobs and address the current unemployment issues worldwide.

Not only this would let us pursue our passions, but also help many to find life, love and mend their relationships. Needs no telling that the quality of our life would also enhance significantly by valuing our time in many different ways.

This shorter-working-week model would definitely act as a catalyst to ensure a sustainable socio-economic revolution.
