Sanjeev's Horse Sense

Self belief

My superpower is my self belief. It help learn and deal with inner negative voices.

Art of War

Men are not shaped by their victories but by their defeats.

Support System

Never hesitate in expressing feeling to teachers, mentors, friends and family.

Reputation

By Sanjeev Singhai.

I read some where yesterday – “Its better to have reputation, then no reputation.” I think my active participation on Social Media, like blogging or presence on Linkedin, FaceBook, Stumbleupon, Twitter or Technoroti was subconscious effort of creating the reputation for me. 

I feel, social media today provides that platform to each of us, where we can create our own reputation or even change our current reputation. Its good medium to showcase – “what you are” and “not as people perceive you.”

Books for Good Career

I see, most of the people hardly read, it’s not important for them? Why people keep themselves away from reading and do not realise how it can impact them? Why people hesitate in self-training?
Once in their profession/ job, most of the people stop the learning process. Reading is one thing, given up first and people consider that studied are over and there is nothing left for them to learn. Or they think, one can learn on job or from day to day life. And learning stops for such people.

I always took up this topic in the trainings sessions, which I (or was used to) conduct for my team. I always stressed on importance of reading. I always advised people to invest money on reading or buying books, magazine or reading whatever is matter of liking to individuals. […]

1 kilometer covered – 4 years

One kilometer covered in four years – And I am sure after reading the topic, most of you must have thought of famous Rabbit and Tortoise Race story. If yes, than you are not right.

This is My Story of last four years in the city of Mumbai and my Horse Sense about it.
Four years back when I choose to get on with my current assignment with Buchanan Group, I never had clue where it will take me in time, which was yet to unfold. I must confess that was one of the most bold, strange and blind folded decision, I had ever taken (though some of you, who know me might say that I was always a risk taker).

On my return from South Africa after 3 months of initial induction in new business in mid 2007, the first challenge was to look for a small, low budget office to start up the business. […]

Advantages Sickness

Ah… I am sick of being sick of this flu and tired of remaining in bed for last 3 days.But what to do with my awake mind, which is not accepting the lethargy, anxiety and sleeplessness? And that’s what, brought me to scribble on this page, which is fast catching up as my favorite destination and becoming my natural vent.But what I face here is, a dead lock of being not able to move forward my thinking to write this blog. So what to do? Let me try penning down few ADVANTAGES of SICKNESS.
  1. My body is getting much needed rest.
  2. I am getting extra attention (which is never less in normal course too) and I feel pampered. […]

Expressing oneself and interactivity

One of the keen follower of my blog – my daughter came to me first thing in the morning today, complaining that why my last blog, ended abruptly and that she wanted to read more. My apologies to all those readers, who were disappointed with the quality of my last blog. In fact, even I was wanting to write more but decided to close where it is for 2 basis reasons:1. That I was drafting the blog in flight and I have to close the PC as I was reaching destination. Also I have decided that I must post a blog yesterday without fail – so I had no other choice but than publish the draft.2. I tried hard to write more but I could not get the thread (or connecting thought) to continue writing.

So, no disappointments. You guys will keep getting to read my blog and the purpose of blogging for me, is to learn how to arrange my thoughts and convert them into an expression. I am learning and you guys will be my partners on my learning process. […]

APPETITE

I find myself being fortunate to having witnessed three biggest changes of the 19th century – television, telephone and Internet.
I still remember in the good old days of 70’s and 80’s I was used to writing letters and sending through post. I use to exchange letters with my closes friend and relatives frequently. Every day waiting for the Postman was part of life and when he had no letters for me, I would say ‘Oh no letters today.”
Mid 80’s, television came into India with Asian Games and it started changing the social structure of the country. The change happened so quietly that no one realized that when we started drifting away from cohesively bonded society to individuality. […]
