On Failure

Everyone is happy here, cause we won. We all enjoyed it very much. We succeeded on something.

So what is it to be successful in Life? Does something has to certified for it to be claimed as success, and failure cause its uncertified or lets say certified failure. Hmm. Have you thought about it? Reason we feel successful and the reason we feel failure. But its not so easy cause what we think is dominated, most of the time, by what others think of it. So we call for majority to decide on our success. Ironically the majority wins, it is so called a Democratic View or Democratic ways. 

Is majority always the correct? But I don't want to discuss on that, what I am interested is in the fear behind being unsuccessful in life. The fear that always hunts us when we feel we are going down in life. I say, let us not fear. So easy isn't it? But it takes a hell lot of courage to think in this way, Or you can also say you have to be stupid enough not to know the risk. Well, which ever way we put it down, the fear is not going to be defined this way. But we can understand the origin of it and I really mean it.

Inorder to understand your fear, you first have to change your prespective on success. Well said. You may be shouting at me inside, "Perspective. Huh. Anything you don't understand , people say change your perspective. What the hell is this perspective anyway?" Well, I really cannot argue on that cause I can't. 

Since your childhood, we have been taught to look only from one way, the good way, the right way and the way everyone looks. I am not encouraging people to break the rules but yes I am encouraging people to break the usual trend in the thought process of human beings which is sometime so predictable.
Personally, perspective is all that matters to me. For me failure is a way of learning your limitations and building on your confidence and strength. When you fail, try to see the reason behind it. And try to be true to your-self why you failed. Now, this is very important. We are not true to ourself 90 percent of the time because, we need to answer to our ego. This EGO which resides in every one of us. This EGO is the god father of ourself. Once you become true to yourself, any failure that you come across, you can smile at it store it into your memory but don't hurt yourself in doing it. Just know that it is a fall among the millions that is going to come ahead. Just accept that, failure does not have any ends so, there is nothing to worry about it. Beileve me everyone of us know what is the right way, only thing is we bindfold ourself and lie to our EGO.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev, for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtzand create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious.

So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256X 256X 256combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one.
Lets start with F-Cube: In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You)

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :)

But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared :
Sale Person: Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz?
Bald Person: (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time.
Sale Person: Here sir, do you want to by a comb? 
Bald Person : Can't you see I am bald? …

Waiting for the right bus

Everyday, after college I would walk home with my friends. Wandering around and talking about future. What will we do? How will we be? How much will we change? Ideas! Ambitions! Life!!!

Everything always tumbled down to a cup of tea at a near by shop, where we were regular visitors. A sip of tea and bunch of thought provoking questions and contradictions. All intelligent and weird minds searching for the answer to a common question - the meaning of life. Trying to find that right path towards salvation. Complete Consciousness!!

Now and then we would simply get lost within ourselves, in the midst of the crowd. Thoughts wandering far beyond the time frame. Everyone building their life on their own dimensions. Confident. Lost. But hopeful.

Like some lost sailors on a boat, every one of us would be looking at different directions hoping to see some signs of calling. But then we wouldn't find any. "What are we searching for ?", would be one damning question in every one'…
