Importance of Clarity

Clarity is very important in all areas of life which are of importance to you.

What is Clarity ? Dictionary meaning is the quality of transparency or purity. It is something which gives you the real picture of something. You will not have any doubts.

Imagine for a moment that you are driving on a unknown road, it is a hill station, beautiful greenery along one of the road and other side of the road there is flowing river. It is really a beautiful nature. You are driving a high end car which can go at a very high speed. You are enjoying the drive and with a good speed. After driving a little while suddenly you see thick fog, u apply breaks. Even if you are having a Car which can go at high speed, you are driving slowly and carefully because there is no clarity of the road ahead. The moment the fog vanished and you can see clear pathway ahead, you start driving at a speed and you are enjoying. All that fear and being careful also vanished the moment you got to see the clarity.

Same is true in all areas of our life. Look at your family relationships, business partnerships, customer and supplier relationships. Can you see, where ever there is clarity you have a great growth and you are enjoying. Wherever the clarity is not there you are still struggling to have it cleared for you. Unclarity applys breaks to the future you are creating. Clarity gives you access and allows you to focus your energies and abilities to accomplish what you want in every area.

This is what works for Goal setting. If you don’t have a clear goal, there in no chance of achieving it. The more you have clear goals, you are more nearer to accomplishing it.

Look at business partnerships. What clarity is not there in all areas of the business. Is there clarity between partners on many aspects. Like why they are together on this mission, what each one can count for each other, together what they want to accomplish, what accountability to be shared in the business, Is there a clear business plan, what team they want to build, What services they want to sell to customers, What type of customers they want want to serve, like each and every aspect of the business needs clarity. It is just a small list shared here. The more you have made it clear on what to accomplish and how to accomplish, next step is to just take actions to make it happen.

Look at family relationships…many are struggling just because of the fact that there is no clarity between members about the future they are creating together. There are assumptions which are not the facts, they are just assumptions. But they are driving the family members. You are driven by your own assumptions not the facts. Each member can see the circumstances from their own views and judgments. That creates gaps between members. Speaking out and having it clear about what you want to create together gives you access.

Look at society people staying together. There are so much of un clarity and no unity between members. Only thing what is missing is The clarity about what they want to accomplish together as society. When all members together start working towards having clarity, they can actually create unimaginable future for all.

Start having clarity on every areas of your life. Create what you want. Have clarity.

Life has no Control !!!

As usual, Early morning 6am I went for jogging. The weather was slightly cold out side. I could hear the sound of sparrows chirping. There were many joggers and people walking at the ground. The kids group was cycling. The senior people group at the corner of the ground is doing yoga. The other senior group at the other corner of the ground practicing laughter therapy. It is a happy morning.

I completed my run and reached back home. I was enjoying morning tea sitting near the window. Enjoying the morning fresh air.

The mobile started ringing braking my silence, In a minute mobile ring stopped. I got up to check who called. It was my childhood classmate. I was wondering why he called me so early. What happened?

I picked the phone and called him. He was in tention and sad. He said one of our classmate expired in the morning. I was shocked. Just a week back I had got update about his health.

I remember the days spent together. My classmate was a bright student at school. He was accomplished and was working for an organisation at a senior post. Well behaved gentleman.

Left all the family members and friends In a short time. He had many goals which he wanted to achieve. Always working towards those dreams. Living with family members with full of joy and fun.

He was unwell for almost 10 days and was admitted to hospital. Life was ruining the days. He was struggling to survive. Few days he messaged us that he is fighting at the same time worried about the future of himself and family. With all the battle he lost his life at the hospital. A sad day for all of us. We lost a precious gem.

This is life. Nothing is in our control. We are totally busy in creating many positions and accomplishments for ourselves and family members. We all keep running behind materialistic things. We are just running. We are not even thinking what we are creating. Every day every moment is precious. Let us fill that with full of joy and aliveness. Start living in the present. There is an old saying “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery and today is a gift, that’s why it is called present !!” Make your day and moment meaning full. Each one of us can create a beautiful life for people around us. Keep contributing to humanity. Remember LIFE IS PRECIOUS and You don’t have control.

Bhagavad Gita Quotes By Lord Krishna

  1. Whatever happened, happened for the good. Whatever is happening, is happening for the good. Whatever will happen, will also happen for the good. Think and analyze what is been said above. It’s so true. Whatever happened in your life is already happened. Can you do anything about it. By thinking over what is already happened, do you see any difference happening by your thinking. It will only keep you engaged in that memory. As humans we are always getting engaged in thoughts about what already happened or what if going to happen. Just see, nothing of that is in your control. One is past and another is the future yet to happen. So what is in your hand is only the present. You can create what you want in the present. You can utilize the present to the fullest.

2. You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work.

You have heard from your grand fathers ‘Karm karo, phal ki chinta mat karo’. Look at your life, as humans we are driven by results. We want results in everything we do. When you are doing something or working for something you are always focused on the end results. If you focus on the process and and your actions definitely you will have great results. Even if you don’t have results you will be happy and satisfied as you enjoyed the process. At the same time if you are focusing on the results, you make not be interested in the process and end results may be not as per your expectations. That leads you to upset and unhappiness. When you are working in a organization focusing on your efficient working process is always give you satisfaction rather than working for pleasing your boss. Just keep doing good deeds and don’t expect rewards.

3. Change is the law of the universe. 

Only thing permanent in the world is CHANGE. Accept it. You were enjoying your child hood, it’s gone, you are growing old. Every time you are getting attached to some physical world just get present that nothing is permanent. Anything can vanish within no time. Get present to the law of universe. Summer is vanished by rains and rains are vanished by winter, it is the cycle of life. Enjoy every moment of life to the fullest.

4. The soul is neither born, and nor does it die

You as a soul is eternal. Soul can not die. It changes the body. Just like you change clothes the soul changes it’s body. Soul will never die. When a person dies people call as body, not even your name is called. You can notice that in day to day life. Till the time the breathing is on, people call you by name. The minute it is stopped they call you as body. Soul is just disappeared from that body. Body is the covering on the soul. Remember SOUL is you…You are ETERNAL.

5. You came empty handed, and you will leave empty handed.

“You came in this world empty handed, and you will leave empty handed. What is yours today belonged to someone else yesterday, and will belong to someone else tomorrow” – Shri Krishna

We live with attachment in materialistic world. We want to earn more money, property, vehicles businesses and many more. We forget that we can not take anything with us at the end of the journey of life. We leave everything to others. What will be remembered is the difference you made to this world & the people around you.

6. Lust, Anger & Greed pushes you to HELL

Kama, krodh and lobh have done no good to anyone in this world. With these behaviors one will be left alone and never satisfied in life.

7. Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.

You are what you think you are. Your thoughts creates who you are. When you say you are angry, you actually become angry. When you say you are happy, you actually become happy. Your thoughts creates you.

Life is a Choice

Living life is all about your choices. When I am saying this, you will have questions like… “Many things happen automatically and I did not make a choice??” Let us look at what is actually happening.

If you start looking in detail about areas of your life, you will start noticing yourself about what I am saying. Start looking from everything from your child hood. You chose many things while you were growing up, like your clothes, the toys, the games you played, the friends you were spending time with and so on.

You chose your school, hobbies and career. The point I am making is you chose some things and you created the future from there. If you see the choices you made yesterday was creating your today. The actions were shaped by your choices.

You chose career, your business, your life partner all those were your own choices. That’s clear that all was shaped by your own choices.

Your choice is a future you are looking to create. It needs ongoing focus on the process. Once you choose and not act upon, will not create what you wanted.

Look at the time you spend in relationships and career. It has become automatic. It’s going on. You have become hopeful about the future of that and you think it will happen automatically.

The relationship with your loved ones needs to be managed, needs to be taken care off. You can not take things granted.

Same with the career. Your job / business all is created from your own choices. It needs periodic check points. You can navigate your journey.

Remember you are the driver of your life. When I say you are the driver, you have all the controls to navigate your life. Keep creating and enjoy the beauty of life. There is nothing at the end of the journey, it is all about the journey to be enjoyed till the end.

Have fun….

Having a effective Meeting

HAVING A EFFECTIVE MEETING

How can we have effective meetings in the organisation? Many times we think of something and something else happens at the meetings. Let’s look at how can we make the meetings effective.

Set the agenda 

It’s really very important to set the agenda for the meeting. As that’s the key points to discuss in the meeting. Without any points you will spend more time without knowing what to discuss. Look at who are suppose to attend the meeting. What is the outcome of the meeting you are setting up?

Set start and end time

Timing for the meeting can be thought much before the meeting, based on the agenda to discuss you can clearly see how much time do you need for the meeting. Intimate the timings each member who will be attending the meeting. That will give clarity to everyone about the agenda and the timings. So that everyone can schedule their other activities.

Conclude the accomplishments of the meeting

Keep some time scheduled in the meeting for the conclusions of the meeting. That will have everyone to to get present to what’s being discussed, what new actions are scheduled and what future needs to be accomplished further.

Points to Notes

  • Keeping things simple and clear will have workability for everyone.
  • Acknowledge the team members for their accomplishments and anything pending to from each one to get present at the start of the meeting
  • Have ground rules for the participation in the meeting
  • Have a clear future to be accomplished for the organisation and also what needs to be accomplished in the meeting

How do you listen to everyone?

How do you listen to everyone?

Hi, The question “How do you listen to everyone?” is really very interesting.. Have you ever thought about this?

Get present to what happens in your day to day life. Get present to the conversations you have with everyone in your life. It’s time to curiously get engaged in every conversation you get involved in.

Consider a small get together at home in the evening and you need to plan many things to make arrangements to have it successfully completed. You have said to your family member that you will take 2 hours leave from work and you will reach home early and you will be able to do all the arrangements.

At the other side you are at office with lots of work and really very busy. In the evening when you are thinking of talking to your boss about you going home early and you want his approval for the same.. Before you go to your boss, he comes to your table and says that there is an urgent meeting scheduled. What happens to you? Suddenly you are not even listening to him, you are listening to your own judgement and evaluation about the situation. You are not even talking to him about anything..is it so….? after few minutes the boss says that he needs to stay back late in the evening and he wants you to assist him all the required documents for the meeting and you can leave for home early. Suddenly you are present to new thoughts inside you. Earlier you were not even listening to him, now you are fully engaged in what he is talking about and what he really wants from you.

Just get present to many of the conversations we are engaged in our life. Every moment we are involved in our own judgement and our own views about everything. We always listen from the judgement and views we are already filled with in our thoughts. We are not present to the reality of what’s happening and what is being said by the other person. Imagine if we start listening to everything from no judgement what’s possible in every relationships we maintain. We will have an extraordinary quality of life. We will not have stress and unhappiness inside of the thoughts we are filled with.

Start looking at the way you participate in every conversation. Have a wonderful day ahead !!!!

 

Begin with WHY?

We all are involved in many activities and are willing to do many things. We want to achieve many of our goals. Each one of us are busy in creating our success stories. Have you ever looked at what’s happening?

We are in the world of doing things…We are busy in that activities… We are always thinking of WHAT I can do?  Or the other world is we are always looking at HOW I can do? we get caught in to this. The reality is we need to answer for a secret question “WHY we do what we do? ” Every answer for the WHY will give you the context we look for and what we can create. The powerful answer to the WHY will give you different actions to work on.

Whenever we are not happy with the results we have produced, it’s time to answer the question “WHY WE DO, WHAT WE DO?”. May be we have forgot the answer or we are busy in some activities which are not leading to what we want. The answer will set you new goals.

Its time to find out the answers for “WHY” in every area of your life to have an extraordinary future for yourself.

Good luck in creating the powerful ‘WHY’ !!!
