Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

By Sanjeev Singhai.

I came across this amazing post on My Facebook and thought this surly has a place on my blog to share with a larger audience. Do share your comment.

On September 18, 2007, computer science professor Randy Pausch stepped in front of an audience of 400 people at Carnegie Mellon University to deliver a last lecture called “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.” With slides of his CT scans beaming out to the audience, Randy told his audience about the cancer that is devouring his pancreas and that will claim his life in a matter of months. On the stage that day, Randy was youthful, energetic, handsome, often cheerfully, darkly funny. He seemed invincible. But this was a brief moment, as he himself acknowledged. Randy’s lecture has become a phenomenon, as has the book he wrote based on the same principles, celebrating the dreams we all strive to make realities. Sadly, Randy lost his battle to pancreatic cancer on July 25th, 2008, but his legacy will continue to inspire us all, for generations to come. […]

Key Qualities of Successful Salesman

Every year thousands of youngsters starts their career in Sales. Everyone wants to succeed and fulfill their life’s dreams. But why, only very few are able to grow beyond a point in their career? Why only handful of them, in their life time, reach to the top of the corporate ladder? Why only very few salesman, can achieve the position of a Chief Executive Officer? Because they forget to focus on key qualities of salesman while building their career. So what are key qualities of successful salesman?

In my opinion, the successful salesman or people are not very different from any normal person. What makes them different is, their value system and attitude toward their own life. Here are few key qualities, which I noticed in successful sales people over the years:

1. Sense of Ownership: All successful sales person has this common trait in their personality. They always take charge of the job assigned to them and never fall short in terms of energy in the ownership. They share and feel the same pain as much business owner feels. They fight hard for their business. […]

Two Percent Rule

By Sanjeev Singhai.

Choice is ours that what we want to be in our one life? This world is ruled/ lead by the 2 Percent people. These 2 Percent people are the politicians, top bureaucrats, businessman, senior executives of large corporations and even mafia dons, gangsters and many more people who are in similar positions of power. What makes these people different is that these people are the best in their field’s and has worked hard to be in the current position and have passionately followed their dreams through out their life (even in the case of mafia dons). These people achieved, what they wanted for themselves.

We too need to arrive on this clarity at early stage of our life or career and decide that where we want to be? Whether we want to be in the 2 Percent people, who rule this world or we want to be part of balance 98% population? […]

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.”

Aimless

After writing first 2 blogs, its been a long gap. For 2 reasons – first, I was too busy and second that I didn’t knew what to write? So I decided to scribble aimlessly. Now I have to see how much I am able to scribble aimlessly? But I am quite sure this is going to be hard for me and at some point of time, I will drift to a specific topic.And here I am, as I was writing a thought clicked to my mind.

Isn’t it true that most of us start their lives aimlessly. We are never in control of what keeps happening around us. Mostly we flow with the events as they take place and keep aligning ourselves with them. And this is an honest answer – no matter how much we say “I did this” or “this how I tackled that problem”, truth remains that our behavior is reaction to occurrence/ circumstances. […]
