Leadership Starts with Simply Being a GOOD Person


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

It doesn’t matter if you are running a business, managing a team, or teaching a class–leadership skills are important. Some people seem to be born knowing what to do to inspire and lead people, but for most of us it doesn’t come that naturally.

Being good is all about our core VALUES as a person.  Every one of us has a set of core values.  Our values have been built from a young age into adulthood.  From day one, the people that have raised us, our parents, relatives, guardians, and friends, have been IMPRINTING values upon us.  When you were young and impressionable, you were just young and impressionable. 

Not everyone will become a great leader, but everyone can become a better leader.

What makes some people excel as leaders often feels shrouded in mystery. You can read about leadership, research it, and talk about it, yet the interest in leadership alone will not necessarily teach you how to be a good leader.

You will have more information than the average person, but learning effective leadership is lifelong work. It requires experience – and lots of it. Most importantly, it requires observation and a commitment to action.

Remember words like these: “Show respect for your sister; that type of behavior may be okay for your friends, but not you; do your chores, everybody does their role in this family.” Those words instilled the values of respect, strength, and hard work. Take a minute and reflect on words you may remember from your childhood. Now let’s fast forward from your childhood to, if appropriate, parenthood. As a parent, have you ever heard your parents voice come out of you as you talk to your kids?  Most parents have, and it’s cute and scary all at the same time. 

In living and leading a fearless life, values are an integral part of navigating and overcoming fear.  In life, when things are good our values are beneficial and positive. However, when a crisis strikes, tragedy sets in, a roadblock is thrown up, and the value of your values skyrockets. I’ve always felt that you learn more about a person when the chips are down. During challenging times our values can be our bedrock, our lightpost and something that carries us through the challenge. 

It is really interesting to reflect back on the first global crisis I had to lead a company through.  It was September 11th and I was in the middle of a capital raise to keep our company alive.  It was also on the heels of the Internet Bubble bursting.  I was leading a struggling tech company in Silicon Valley that was running out of money and America just got hit by terrorists.  In fact, on September 11th we had investors from New York and Chicago in our offices in California and we became their hosts for over a week as all planes were grounded. 

In the face of adversity, the values that immediately struck were STRENGTH, COURAGE and FAITH.  Just a day earlier the company relied on its own strength, but today the company needed mine.  Everyone was shaken, and I don’t mean professionally.  We were all shaken personally and as Americans we were literally numb. As a company we pulled together for our employees, served our clients, but more importantly served our community, all while we were struggling and running out of cash.  We were courageous in the face of fear and had faith that if we did the right things, good things would happen to us. We made it through September 11thstronger as a company and closer as a family.  And our Fearless Leadership was rewarded with a successful capital raise and the company stayed in business and grew. 

The lessons I learned during that crisis I have been able to apply at other times in my career – during the financial meltdown of 2008-2009 and most recently during the global pandemic we are all experiencing. In all of these instances, I have lived and learned that simply waking up and being a good person is perhaps the biggest part of being a steady and consistent leader during troubled times.

Final Thoughts

Learning how to be a good leader, first and foremost, is an inside job. You must focus on growing as a person, regardless of the leadership title that you hold. You cannot take others where you yourself have not been. So focusing on yourself, regardless of your time or where you are in your career, will have long term benefits for you and the people around you.

Being a Fearless Leader is built on being a good person and living your core values. Values are great in good times, and they are literally the super-glue during the tough times.

Project Management Processes


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

What is Project Management ?

Project management is one of the critical processes of any project. This is due to the fact that project management is the core process that connects all other project activities and processes together. Whether it’s constructing a building, launching an app, or rolling out a marketing campaign, every project requires a series of processes to bring it to fruition.

Each of the project management processes has a specific purpose through the project life cycle and when done right, they guarantee the successful completion of projects.

When it comes to the activities of project management, there are plenty. However, these plenty of project management activities can be categorized into five main processes.

The basic phases in the project management process are:

What are Project Management Processes ?

The key project management processes, which run through all of these phases, are:

Scope Management

The scope refers to all the work required to complete a project which is defined by a work breakdown structure during the planning phase. In simple terms, scope management consists of including all the activities, and clarifying what won’t be done. This is the base for scheduling, budgeting, and task management.

Task Management

This process begins with careful planning. Once you’ve constructed your work breakdown structure, you’ll be able to know every task needed to complete your project. Then you can assign these tasks to your team members. It is important to understand the task dependencies so that you know the order in which they need to be completed.

Resource Management

Consists in effectively identifying, acquiring and allocating resources such as people, capital, equipment and materials to complete tasks and produce deliverables. Once you have defined the project scope you’ll be able to determine the resources that will be needed for each activity. As the project progresses, the use of resources must be controlled.

Schedule Management

The schedule management process can be divided in 3 sub processes: estimating, scheduling and controlling. First you estimate the time for each activity, milestone and deliverable. Then you develop schedules based on your time estimates. Once the execution phase begins, you have to monitor the project schedule.

Risk Management

The risk management process helps you identify what might happen to throw your project off track and then define a response so you’ve got contingency plans in place.

This is usually done on larger projects, rather than smaller. Although even for small teams, a short sync up with the team to help identify potential problems in the plan would be useful to guard against the unexpected and have plans of action in case it does. There are several types of risks, but the most important are those that affect the triple constraint.

Quality Management

During the initiation phase, the stakeholders express their quality requirements for the project deliverables. Based on that, project managers develop a quality policy which defines the quality control procedures that will guarantee quality assurance.

Stakeholder Management

Stakeholders are the soul of a project. By understanding their needs and frequently communicating with them throughout the project life cycle, you’ll be able to meet their requirements.

Cost Management

This process is applied to every stage of the project life cycle. It involves cost estimation, establishing budgets and cost control. Simply put, you begin by estimating the cost associated with each task, and then you create a budget that will cover those expenses. Once the execution phase begins you have to monitor the cost of the project as it progresses.

Issue Management

An risk is a problem that has affected the project. Issue management is how you deal with problems when they turn up on your project and it’s worth working out what this is going to look like for you because something is bound to go wrong.

The process will cover who needs to be notified, how you make decisions about what to do next, and who has the authority to take action.

Change Management

Every project has changes. Sometimes that’s because the objective wasn’t defined particularly well at the outset. Or because the business strategy has changed and the project needs to be updated accordingly. You must create a change management plan, which will include your project’s change management procedures and forms.

Procurement Management

Many projects involve working with suppliers and there is normally a process around how you engage and contract with them so that everyone knows what to expect and what you are getting for your money.

Communications

Yes, communication is a process! You have to identify who needs to get which message when and which method of communication is most appropriate. A communication plan will help you do this.

Pro Tip: If you do nothing else on your project, make sure you develop a communication plan and actually communicate! This is the fastest and most efficient way to stay on top of your project performance.

These are the most common processes, but you can also create in-house bespoke processes to help you deal with the quirks of your organization. The key thing is to make sure you aren’t starting from scratch every time, and that you are introducing standardization into how you manage projects as much as possible.

Workplace Happiness Matters


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Happiness at work is heavily surveyed and it is proved that an average human spends over 90,000 hours at work over his/her lifetime. People still figure out how to work on feeling happy or coming in terms with your work. Just like everyone, you may be also thinking that happiness should be the primary goal of having a good work-life.

Most people chase success at work, thinking that will make them happy. The truth is that happiness at work will make you successful. How often do you consider quitting your job and feel that you are not getting paid enough for the dedication and service you offer your organization?

Happiness and satisfaction are subjective concepts – while for some of us monetary benefits can be equated with job satisfaction, some might strive for recognition of their hard-work and lose motivation on failing to achieve so. For some people, having a friendly environment at work is an essential requisite for deriving pleasure. No matter what the standards are, being content with our careers is crucial for maintaining the ‘work-life’ balance.

Being happy is the first step to anything that we want to do successfully. Going to the office, mechanically performing all the duties assigned, and coming home to spend the rest of the day with a drink in hand and the TV in front is an ideal picture of an unhappy life.

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ~Dalai Lama

How to work toward happiness at work

So now that we know the essence and benefits of happiness at work, how can we foster, support, and build it?

There’s no single, simple answer to this question. However, in developing our course, we have identified four key pillars of happiness at work: Purpose, Engagement, Resilience, and Kindness—or PERK, as in to PERK up your happiness at work, or make happiness your company’s best PERK.

Studies report multiple ways to strengthen each pillar of PERK on personal, social, and structural levels at work—through individual exercises and activities, the development of key social skills, shifts in leadership style, organization-wide initiatives, or changes to company policy. While this field is young and ideas overlap, we offer PERK as a flexible, integrated framework to help guide thinking about how to increase happiness at work.

A happy worker will reach office on time because he respects his punctuality and will perform all the daily tasks because he enjoys doing it. He will work out of love, not out of compulsion.

1. Happiness Multiplies Success

Happiness at work can spread like fire. Employees who feel pleasure in doing their work form a great example to others who are less motivated.

For example, when a team leader is happy with his position and work, he can influence his team with more positivity and maintain great functionality in the group. Happiness in the workplace is directly correlational to increased productivity and better group performance at work.

2. Happiness Builds Positivity

A troubled mind can be the storehouse of negative contemplations. When we work out of compulsion and don’t feel passionate about the contribution we make to the organization’s success, our mind starts wearing.

We become stressed, lose focus, and indulge self-deprecating thoughts like “I have to quit”, “I cannot take it anymore”, “I am not worth it”, etc. On the contrary, a professional who has strong positive feelings about his job will undoubtedly be more enthusiastic and focus on building himself. Rather than focusing on the problems, he would look into ways of solving it.

3. Happiness Reduces Stress

Annie Mckee, an International Leadership advisor, and writer, in one of her publications in the Harvard Business Review, mentioned that when employees are unhappy, their brain starts to disconnect from the positive emotions, and damages their power of creative thinking and reasoning.

She further said in her article on the link between our thoughts, feelings, and actions. If any of these breaks down, it is sure to hamper the others. If we feel happy in the 8 hours that we spend at work, if somehow we can hit the strings of positivity that will keep us uplifted, it can remarkably improve our responses to stress and redirect our focus to the positive aspects of the work-life.

4. Happiness at Work means a Healthy Life

If we allow the work stress and disappointments to enter into our personal space, there is no way that we can get rid of them.

Successful professionals who can optimize their work are less likely to suffer from hypertension, cardiac arrests, substance abuse, and other stress-related disorders.

When we are happy from inside, we get that power to fight diseases and the will to recover and get back on track.

Remaining physically or mentally sick can bring unprecedented hurdles even at work. We lose the energy to give it our best shot, become less focused on work and more focused on the woes, and consequently, kill our productive soul.

Not just that, happiness at work also makes us less prone to work-related stress and burdens.

5. Happiness at Work Increases Likeability

We all like to stay around people who have a positive attitude and look content with themselves. In a happy state of mind, people are more innovative and inspired. They are willing to improve their existing skills and contributes toward creating a fun and creative performance culture at work.

Finding happiness in work helps in building strong interpersonal relationships at work and encourage people to work together for the common welfare of the organization they are serving. It is the backbone for innovation, loyalty, responsibility, and success.

Happy workers can create a pleasant environment at work that is easy for others to cope in, and the more people get into it, the better the team grows.

Dyfed Loesche, an eminent statistical and data journalist, in one of his publications about countries having the best and the worst work-life balance, mentioned that the Netherlands is one of the happiest countries concerning the work-life balance.

His interactive chart (given below) represents the countries that have great work-life balance, starting with the one that has the happiest working population.

Comfort zone is graveyard of our Dreams


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

It has always been said that life begins at the end of your comfort zone, so then why are so many of us afraid of stepping outside of it? I will tell you why, because being inside your comfort zone minimises stress and anxiety. This makes it super duper easy to never push the boundaries, because it’s pretty darn comfy inside your little safety bubble, right?

Coming out of your comfort zone is tough in the beginning, chaotic in the middle, and awesome in the end…because in the end, it shows you a whole new world. We always tend to slide into our comfort zones whenever we find a familiar environment. It is time to get out of our comfort area and challenge ourselves to attain new dimensions in life. What can seem like small marginal gains start to stack together to create a rhythm that is unstoppable.

The comfort zone is a psychological state in which one feels familiar, safe, at ease, and secure. You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone. I’m not telling you it’s going to be easy, I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it.

The comfort zone is nothing else but a graveyard for your dreams & ideas.

For some people, the thought of stepping out of their safety bubble is unfathomable, especially if you know for certain that anxious feelings will arise.

Doing everyday normal activities is so familiar that it doesn’t create any apprehension. However, flying solo across the world, jumping out of an airplane, or following your bucket list dream of opening a new business will probably make people a little jittery. Really, why would you want to provoke feeling anxious? Here’s why. Because, every time you do you will grow-each time a little piece of the fear of the unknown is removed and replaced with a little piece of empowerment. And if you continuously do this the size of your fear bubble will get smaller while your comfort bubble gets bigger. With that said, we all need a little extra motivation every now and then to face our fear and step out of our comfort zone bubbles, and these comfort zone quotes will help you do it.

Sometimes it is good to be in uncomfortable situations because it is in finding our way out of such difficulties that we learn valuable lessons. Each time you try something for the first time you will grow-a little piece of the fear of the unknown is removed and replaced with a sense of empowerment. Real change is difficult at the beginning, but gorgeous at the end. Change begins the moment you get the courage and step outside your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone

I will guarantee you that the day you step outside your comfort zone by making success your goal, is the day you discover that adversity, risk, and daring will make life sweeter than you ever imagined.

This is the new year the new you. You can pass through another year, coasting on cruise control. Or you can step out of your comfort zone, trying things you have never done before, and make 2021 as the year that you elevate from where you are & soar high. Make it happen!

It is time to rise above NORMAL!

A mother’s love is unlike any other


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Mother is not just a word, it is the deep emotion, thought and feeling that no other relation can make.  A mother’s love is unlike any other and our one-of-a-kind relationships can never be compared. No word can define how amazing mothers are. Not only do they hold us in their womb for 9 months, but they are also the first ones to show us the world by introducing us to our dad and our entire family.

The greatness of a mother is the most perfect thing that exists in the life of human beings. A good mother will never be forgotten, we will take her forever in our hearts; that’s why it is so important that we value as she deserves, giving that invaluable person the proper place. Since we are in her womb, we feel her full and delicate protection compared only with the magnanimous love of our creator; therefore, our mother is unique.

While a lot of people say that as parents we shouldn’t be friends with our children, it is something that happens no matter what. If you have a positive relationship with your mother, she will become your best friend whether it’s when you’re young or years later when you’re finally an adult.

My Mother is the one person I know now that I can call in the middle of the night if I truly need her. She loves me unconditionally and I love her unconditionally. I have kept her up at night without realizing it and she has always worried about me in ways other people never will. My mom is a great best friend and I would not trade her for the world. The relationship I have with my mom is easily the most important one in my life and that might sound a bit weird to some but if you have a positive connection with your mom, you know exactly what I am talking about. A mother’s love is unconditional and only grows stronger over a lifetime. 

You will realize just how important she is when she is finally gone and by that time it will be too late so please do your best to understand the relationship you have with the woman who brought you into this world. She is the person who helped to make you who you are right now, she has cared for you through the ups and downs life has placed before her and even when she was struggling she make time to play with you and do her best to bring a smile to your face.

She was there when you went through breakups, she was there when you fell off your bike, and if you ever needed her for anything she would only be just a call away. She wants the best for you and works hard to see that you even now are able to live a good life. If you are struggling she will always come through the help in any way she can and she deserves some acknowledgment.

She is the person who has stood by you when you were treating her badly and made sure you still had all you needed in life. She might not be the same woman she used to be now that you’re older and she’s getting up there in age but she will continue to love you completely until the day she takes her last breath and even into the afterlife. Be sure to bring back the love and care that she gives to you before it’s too late!

A mother’s love impacts us in an incredible way, always guiding and protecting, and it can be felt long after they are gone. A Mother is a gem in everyone’s life. She is the ultimate source of happiness for a child. Her contributions are certainly too great to imagine. Above all, her love is pure and innocent. To find a Mother who does not love is probably an impossible task.

For those of you who are lucky to be still blessed with your Mom’s presence on Earth, this story is beautiful. A small piece of advice my dear friends, fall back to your parents for anything and everything. I am sure that will make our lives better. Our parents may not understand all our feelings, emotions and thoughts immediately. They may not be so educated, talented & advanced; however I am sure they will make an honest attempt to understand us at any case. And, that attempt would always make the result fruitful. It is because they deny something or go against some of our decisions it does not mean they will do it always. They always understand and all ears to us with an unlimited unconditional eternal love.

Kindly understand your parents and respect the love, hope, dreams & the faith that they kept on you…I sincerely request each and everyone, please never miss your parents. They are the visible gods on earth.

I know I am miles away from my mother now. But, I will never forget what my mother sacrificed in her life and it is what have made me special in this world. She never left hopes on me, her belief and trust made me achieve all what I have now, but I never cared you and received you with love.I thank you for all your unconditional love, care, and numerous uncountable things you have given me in life. I wish you all health, happiness and comfort forever. Please never leave me mom.

Message to Women who sacrifice themselves for Family


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

The journey of a woman at any stage of her life can be either extremely beautiful or extremely disastrous, and a great deal of this depends on what kind of men are around her. By this I don’t mean that women are not strong. In fact, women are more courageous and strength-providing creatures than men could ever be. Our Earth has been a male dominated society for centuries. This means men have most of the power. But as they say ‘with great power comes great responsibility’, so the question that has been stamped on the strength and power of men is:  are we taking the responsibility and doing enough to make women feel respected, ensuring that they have a fulfilling life?

In Life, relationships are what we have and they are important. Relationships are wonderful… until they’re not. While most relationships require work, the difference between sacrifice and compromise can sometimes be hard to tell. Are you actually making healthy compromises in your relationship or are you starting to sacrifice yourself? Are you happy or are you getting resentful? Will your relationship last or is it destined to fall apart? These are all questions you can be wondering about if you’re not sure whether you are making the appropriate compromises for your relationship or whether you’re sacrificing too much.

Maintaining a successful relationship with someone often means making compromises to be with each other — that’s just part of being in a partnership. But, there are some sacrifices you should never make in a relationship, no matter how much you love the person you’re with.

The truth is, there is a clear line between compromise and sacrifice, but sometimes, it’s a really thin line, and when you’re in the thick of a relationship, you can’t really see it. Unfortunately, if you’re already starting to feel a bit uncomfortable with your relationship and where it’s going, it’s even more necessary to make sure you are staying in healthy territory. One partner getting upset and feeling unheard is a surefire way for things to end quickly.

No relationship should ever put your health or your happiness at risk. If your partner or your relationship is taking a toll on your mental health, hurting you in any way, or leading you to believe you don’t deserve to be happy, it’s not a relationship you should be in. It doesn’t matter how strong your feelings are for someone, or how long you’ve been with them if they do and say things that are harmful to your health and make you unhappy all the time. You should never have to sacrifice your happiness for anyone, and honestly, a loving partner would never ask that of you

So, how can you know? Well, there are actually three main differences between compromise and sacrifice. By examining this list, you’ll better be able to discern whether your relationship is the right, healthy one for you.

🛑 Compromise Is Mutual; Sacrifice Is Disproportionate

🛑 Compromise Has A Specific Goal; Sacrifice Often Doesn’t

🛑 Compromise Is Never Resentful; Sacrifice Can Be

My dear women, most importantly make time for yourself .. the ME time.. the time for the self.. 

🛑Get in touch with your friends… Talk, laugh and enjoy

🛑 Live your passion, live your life  

🛑 Once in a while do things that love to do …

🛑 Don’t look for your happiness in others, you too deserve some happiness because if you are not happy you cannot make others happy 

🛑 Everyone needs you, and you too need your own care and love.

🛑 Women should come forward to help and guide other women who are unable to handle their personal stress and give them a hand to uplift their confidence .

🛑HELP Yourselves and make this LIFE WORTHWHILE .

If you are in a relationship where you feel like you are sacrifcing all the time or sacrificing too much, the best thing to do is talk to your partner about how you can get back to a healthy place. If that doesn’t work, unfortunately, you just may not be in the right relationship for you.

I believe that a society where its women do not feel secure and respected is not worth calling a society. Crimes like rape, domestic violence and trafficking have increased over time and the word respect is ebbing. Trafficking of women has raised a big concern and has destroyed many lives. I live in a country where, according to statistical data, a rape happens every 20 minutes. Men have misused their dominance and power and responsibility has not been taken.

A woman sacrifices a lot of things in her life. Yet, somehow she finds happiness in those things. I hope we, as men, find happiness in giving women the love and respect they deserve. Respecting women cannot be a rule, but surely it can be a responsibility. We all have only one life to live , respect everyone and give space to everyone to lead their life….Life is beautiful ….

Patient Management System


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

The advancements in healthcare industry are not just confined to the quality medical care solutions but also to change the delivery system and patient experience as a whole. All the industries have understood the innate potential of automation and the results are quite optimistic. It is a now time for the healthcare industry transformation, in the light of emerging automation solutions in the hospital management system.

In the current age, Time and health are two precious commodities. Patient management can help improve both. It helps in Improving the quality of patient care, making optimal use of resources, ensuring compliance with all statutory requirements and at the same time staying ahead of the competition requires stable IT support.

Patient management is a broad term, with two categories of definitions. One definition refers to a software tool that streamlines processes within a medical practice or hospital, and the other refers to an entire system of care involving both patient and practice. 

Paying attention to patient management can have many benefits for medical practices and hospitals. Speeding up communications and administrative tasks reduces administrative staffing time and allows staff to focus on direct patient care. The amount of time spent on data entry, record keeping, and appointment reminder phone calls is also reduced.

A patient management system often goes beyond just being an electronic health record or electronic medical record (EMR). Government incentives helped expedite the move towards electronic health records, and many practices realized that other software and systems could be beneficial. Patient management software can integrate appointment history, patient information, diagnoses, prescriptions, billing records, and more. It can also help practices and hospitals reduce costs by automating some tasks like appointment scheduling, sending reminders, and billing. 

Functionality and needs differ depending whether or not the medical practice is small and independent or part of a larger medical group. PMS systems work entirely differently within a hospital setting. The software can link practices and medical offices so things like patient records are easy to access on a variety of devices in different settings.

A patient management software system can provide any of the following functions. Not all of the patient management software features listed below are included in any single software application. However, each feature is part of some patient management systems currently available. This comprehensive list can help you understand your practice’s unique requirements and get a head start on the software selection process.

  1. Welcome patients to a practice or hospital and allow people to sign in
  2. Screen identification and print badges for visitors
  3. Complete forms before appointments to decrease patient time spent in the waiting room and administrative time spent inputting data
  4. Keep medical records and allow easy accessibility from a variety of locations including from a mobile device
  5. Schedule appointments and allow patients to see what is available and pick the best time for them
  6. Send confirmations of appointments and place them on an electronic calendar
  7. Send reminders about appointments, hopefully reducing the number of no-shows
  8. Send follow-up health information, advice, and reminders of what physicians said to do to increase patient participation in their own health care
  9. Notify physicians when patients arrive to decrease wait times
  10. Keep records of patient encounters so both physicians and patients can refer to previous conversations and appointments
  11. Monitor and receive data from medical devices and provide alerts both to physicians and patients if medical attention is necessary
  12. Allow emails and conversations between patient and physician
  13. Generate bills and insurance claims
  14. Regardless of the software a medical practice or hospital chooses, it still needs to adhere to some pre defined rules and comply with GDPR

Final Thoughts

Patient management software sets new standards for excellence in patient care. It provides healthcare facilities of all sizes with greater economy, enhanced quality of service, more accuracy and more efficiency. Programs are available to suit a variety of medical practice needs. Now that you know what features to expect, you can start gathering requirements and comparing vendors in the industry. Good luck on your journey to better patient care!

She is ShanvikaPrawin


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Father means so many things. An understanding heart, a source of strength and of support right from the very start. A constant readiness to help in a kind and thoughtful way, with encouragement and forgiveness no matter what comes your way. A Father means so many things

ShanvikaPrawin, you are a princess in my heart, and I care for you so much.I love the fondness in you eyes and your tender little touch. A father loves a daughter is like no other love on earth. From the day that I first meet you nothing can compare your worth.

I looked at you when you were born and knew then straight away that I would be altogether a different person from that day. You bring to me a heart of joy and memories so great and a powerful sense of fatherhood that no one can debate.

Whom should I thank?
God or my destiny,
For the gift of lovely daughter in my life,
You are an angel for me now,
I don’t think without you,
You are the beat of my heart,
You have been special right from the start,
You are the sun that shines,
You are light of the moon,
You are so kind,
You are my beautiful daughter,
You are one of a kind!
With you in my life,
Everything is so perfect and right,
You are my life my sweet little daughter,
There is no one like you,
No one another!
Thanks for coming in my life!

In today’s world, fathers have become more influential and inspiring on a daughter’s upbringing. Daughters are sweet and playful by nature; hence, they need someone that will guide them along the way, and fathers one of the best persons to keep them on track. Though there are times when the father’s role in a daughter’s life is often overlooked as they tend not be as communicative and insightful as the mothers, these strong men are very potent and kind. 

Having a fatherly figure makes file more tolerable and comfortable. A positive father and daughter bond creates a win-win situation to both fathers and daughters. For the daughters, it can help them develop into a strong, positive and mature woman. Fathers seemingly builds their daughter’s self-esteem and self-image, as well as their views on men. A father may not be the perfect model, but he is good enough in his daughter’s eyes. And from then, seeing a daughter turn into a mature women with good values and right skill, fathers become very grateful of the whole fatherhood process.

My Daughter means the world to me a big wide world for her to see. She grows a little more each day and I’ll be here always, to guide her way. She blooms and grows like a flower. Little by little, hour by hour.One day I’ll look and she’ll be grown and start a life out on her own. But for the time, she’s with me now, so I can teach and show here how.

All fathers are not fortunate enough to spend time with their kids and show their love. Unfortunately I am one among them.

A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart.

Father – Daughter’s inspiration, Son’s aspiration

Mother: The Living GOD


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

A mother’s love is unlike any other and our one-of-a-kind relationships can never be compared.  She is the person who brought us into the world irrespective of our gender is the mother. Mother, the goddess of eternal love, not only give us birth but also feed us, raise us to become adult, teaches us to become a good human being and many other. She plays the role of teacher, guide, role model, friend and a lot of other roles.

Mama-and-Baby

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. when we get hurt, the first person which we remember is always the mother. Sometimes harsh, sometimes funny, always loving, always caring is the mother. The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.

“Mother” is such a simple word,

But to me there’s meaning seldom heard.
For everything I am today,
My mother’s love showed me the way.
I’ll love my mother all my days,
For enriching my life in many ways.
She set me straight and then set me free,
And that’s what the word “mother” means to me.
Thanks for being a wonderful mother, Mom!

‘Mother’ is a very best creation by god. It is said, “as god cannot be in many places at a time, he created mother in place of god who will satisfy all our needs and bless us always with all her love irrespective of our mischievous behaviour.” I feel this is correct. And I feel great to be a child of my great mother.

My mom is great and she does many things to my family. Of course every mom is very good and will do anything for their children. My mom is the one who is very lovable, friendly, caring and cannot stop using such adjectives to describe her nature. My mom is my best friend in the world. I can proudly tell that my mom is a special person, who will forgive me for all my mistakes and will guide me with her everlasting smile on her lips. She helps every one whom ever she can and in whatever the way she can.

Mothers make great sacrifices while raising their children. She gives away her sleep so that her child sleep comfortably. Mothers give away their time to teach their kids different ethics, manners which will help them stand high in society. They sacrifice their bodies to give them birth. When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.

We are very lucky to have this precious gift which God has bestowed on us. Think of the people who lost their mother while birth or the orphan children who had never seen their mothers. We should not take our mothers for granted. We will get to know her importance only after we lost her. We should respect her and treat her like a god. We should let her know that we love her by helping her and ease off her pressure. A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary. Sometimes, mothers say and do things that seem like they don’t want their kids but when you look more closely, you realize that they’re doing those kids a favor. They’re just trying to give them a better life.

For those of you who are lucky to be still blessed with your Mom’s presence on Earth, this story is beautiful. In the end, I would like to say that love her, respect her and care for her in the way she did to you, you won’t able to find the same unconditional love anywhere in the universe.

Please feel free to share your story and any lessons you learned, you experienced, you came across in your life in the comments below. If you enjoyed this, or any other other posts, I’d be honoured  if you’d share it with your family, friends and followers!

New National Education Policy 2020


Education is an important aspect of our lives, while some of us take it for granted, there are others who crave and struggle to get it. Education is one of the most powerful things in life. It allows us to find the meaning behind everything and helps improve lives in a massive way. Education is important because it broadens our knowledge, and this knowledge then opens our minds to new perspectives, ideas, beliefs, and cultures.

Education is not just about spoon feeding but about inspiring them to think out of the box and foresee a better future. It is all about how to apply it in real life to change the world for a better cause. Irrespective of race, creed, and gender, education makes it possible for people to stand out as equal with all the other persons from different walks of life.  Education enhances our perspective on the world. Enriching our brains with new and valuable information improves our ability to think, analyze, and process the world around us.

The Indian National Education Policy was framed in 1986 and modified in 1992. More than three decades have passed since previous Policy. During this period significant changes have taken place in our country, society economy, and the world at large. The biggest relief for the millions of students and parents in the new national education policy is the announcement to make the board exams of class 10th and 12th easy. Students are always under pressure regarding board exams and depend on coaching to get more marks. But in the future, they can get freedom from it.MunnaPrawinThe Government had initiated the process of formulating a New Education Policy. As a part of this, The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister has approved the National Education Policy 2020, making way for large scale, transformational reforms in both school and higher education sectors. This is the first education policy of the 21st century and replaces the 34 year old National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986. Built on the foundational pillars of access, equity, quality, affordability and accountability, this policy is aligned to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and aims to transform India into a vibrant knowledge society and global knowledge superpower by making both school and college education more holistic, flexible, multidisciplinary, suited to 21st century needs and aimed at bringing out the unique capabilities of each student.

New Education Policy 2020 HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Early Childhood Care & Education with new curricular and pedagogical structure:
    • With emphasis on Early Childhood Care and Education, the 10+2 structure of school curricula is to be replaced by a 5+3+3+4 curricular structure corresponding to ages 3-8, 8-11, 11-14, and 14-18 years respectively. This will bring the hitherto uncovered age group of 3-6 years under school curriculum, which has been recognized globally as the crucial stage for development of mental faculties of a child.
    • The new system will have 12 years of schooling with three years of anganwadi/ preschooling.
    • NCERT will develop a National Curricular and Pedagogical Framework for Early Childhood Care and Education (NCPFECCE) for children up to the age of 8.
    • ECCE will be delivered through a significantly expanded and strengthened system of institutions including anganwadis and preschools that will have teachers and anganwadi workers trained in the ECCE pedagogy and curriculum.
    • The planning and implementation of ECCE will be carried out jointly by the Ministries of HRD, Women and Child Development (WCD), Health and Family Welfare (HFW), and Tribal Affairs.
  • Ensuring Universal Access at all levels of school education, through following measures:
    • NEP 2020 emphasizes on ensuring universal access to school education at all levels-pre school to secondary.
    • Infrastructure support, innovative education centres to bring back dropouts into the mainstream.
    • Tracking of students and their learning levels, facilitating multiple pathways to learning involving both formal and non-formal education modes.
    • Association of counselors or well-trained social workers with schools.
    • Open learning for class 3, 5 and 8 through NIOS and State Open Schools.
    • Secondary education programs equivalent to Grades 10 and 12, vocational courses, adult literacy and life-enrichment programs.
    • About 2 crore out of school children will be brought back into mainstream under NEP 2020.

MunnaPrawin

  • Reforms in school curricula and pedagogy: 
    • Students will have increased flexibility and choice of subjects. There will be no rigid separations between arts and sciences, between curricular and extracurricular activities, between vocational and academic streams.
    • Vocational education will start in schools from the 6th grade, and will include internships. A new and comprehensive National Curricular Framework for School Education, NCFSE 2020-21, will be developed by the NCERT.
  • Multilingualism and the power of language:
    • The policy has emphasized mother tongue/ local language/ regional language as the medium of instruction at least till Grade 5, but preferably till Grade 8 and beyond.
    • Sanskrit to be offered at all levels of school and higher education as an option for students, including in the three-language formula. Other classical languages and literature of India also to be available as options.
    • No language will be imposed on any student. Several foreign languages will also be offered at the secondary level. Indian Sign Language (ISL) will be standardized across the country, and national and state curriculum materials developed, for use by students with hearing impairment.
  • Assessment Reforms: 
    • NEP 2020 envisages a shift from summative assessment to regular and formative assessment. All students will take school examinations in Grades 3, 5, and 8 which will be conducted by the appropriate authority.
    • Board exams for Grades 10 and 12 will be continued, but redesigned with holistic development as the aim. A new National Assessment Centre, PARAKH (Performance Assessment, Review, and Analysis of Knowledge for Holistic Development),  will be set up as a standard-setting body.
  • Equitable and Inclusive Education:
    • Special emphasis will be given on Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Groups (SEDGs) which include gender, socio-cultural, and geographical identities and disabilities. This includes setting up of a Gender Inclusion Fund and also Special Education Zones for disadvantaged regions and groups.
    • Children with disabilities will be enabled to fully participate in the regular schooling process from the foundational stage to higher education, with support of educators with cross disability training, resource centres, accommodations, assistive devices, appropriate technology-based tools and other support mechanisms tailored to suit their needs.
    • Every state/ district will be encouraged to establish Bal Bhavans as a special daytime boarding school, to participate in art-related, career-related, and play-related activities. Free school infrastructure can be used as Samajik Chetna Kendras.

Munna Prawin

  • Standard setting and accreditation for school education: 
    • NEP 2020 envisages clear, separate systems for policy making, regulation, operations and academic matters. States/UTs will set up an independent State School Standards Authority (SSSA).
    • Transparent public self-disclosure of all the basic regulatory information, as laid down by the SSSA, will be used extensively for public oversight and accountability. The SCERT will develop a School Quality Assessment and Accreditation Framework (SQAAF) through consultations with all stakeholders.
    • Further, schools can be organized into complexes or clusters which will be the basic unit of governance and ensure availability of all resources including infrastructure, academic libraries and a strong professional teacher community.
  • Higher Education:
    • The policy envisages broad based, multi-disciplinary, holistic undergraduate  education with flexible curricula, creative combinations of subjects, integration of vocational education and multiple entry and exit points with appropriate certification.
    • UG education can be of 3 or 4 years with multiple exit options and appropriate certification within this period. For example, Certificate after 1 year, Advanced Diploma after 2 years, Bachelor’s Degree after 3 years and Bachelor’s with Research after 4 years.
    • An academic bank of credit is to be established for digitally storing academic credits earned from different HEIs so that these can be transferred and counted towards the final degree earned.
  • Regulation:
    • Higher Education Commission of India (HECI) will be set up as a single overarching umbrella body for the entire higher education, excluding medical and legal education.
    • HECI to have four independent verticals: National Higher Education Regulatory Council (NHERC) for regulation, General Education Council (GEC ) for standard setting, Higher Education Grants Council (HEGC) for funding, and National Accreditation Council ( NAC) for accreditation.
    • HECI will  function through faceless intervention through technology, and will have powers to penalise HEIs not conforming to norms and standards. Public and private higher education institutions will be governed by the same set of norms for regulation, accreditation and academic standards.
    • The definition of university will allow a spectrum of institutions that range from research-intensive universities to teaching-intensive universities and autonomous degree-granting colleges.
    • Affiliation of colleges is to be phased out in 15 years and a stage-wise mechanism is to be established for granting graded autonomy to colleges. Over a period of time, it is envisaged that every college would develop into either an autonomous degree-granting college, or a constituent college of a university.
  • Teacher Education: 
    • A new and comprehensive National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education, NCFTE 2021, will be formulated by the NCTE in consultation with NCERT. By 2030, the minimum degree qualification for teaching will be a 4-year integrated B.Ed. degree. Stringent action will be taken against substandard stand-alone Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs).
    • A national mission for mentoring will be established, with a large pool of outstanding senior/ retired faculty, including those with the ability to teach in Indian languages, who would be willing to provide short and long-term mentoring/ professional support to university/ college teachers.
  • Online Education and Digital Education: 
    • A comprehensive set of recommendations for promoting online education consequent to the recent rise in epidemics and pandemics in order to ensure preparedness with alternative modes of quality education whenever and wherever traditional and in-person modes of education are not possible, has been covered.
    • A dedicated unit for the purpose of orchestrating the building of digital infrastructure, digital content and capacity building will be created in the MHRD to look after the e-education needs of both school and higher education.
    • An autonomous body, the National Educational Technology Forum (NETF), will be created to provide a platform for the free exchange of ideas on the use of technology to enhance learning, assessment, planning, administration. Appropriate integration of technology into all levels of education will be done.
  • Promotion of Indian languages
    • To ensure the preservation, growth, and vibrancy of all Indian languages, NEP recommends setting an Indian Institute of Translation and Interpretation (IITI), National Institute (or Institutes) for Pali, Persian and Prakrit, strengthening of Sanskrit and all language departments in HEIs, and use mother tongue/ local language as a medium of instruction in more HEI programmes .

DARE TO BE YOU


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

Dare to be you

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can – At all times, Dare to be!”

“¯`✻´¯) DARE TO BE YOU ✶♪✻ღ*✿ `*.¸.*✻ღღ.¸¸.✫*¨`*✶♪¸.✻ღ

Break free before time runs out


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

You have ONE life. Don’t waste it by being complacent and settling for ease. You must, must, must get out of your comfort zone to grow and live.

Recently, I met one of friend who lives in States. During the discussion, I learnt both of her sons got killed in a bike accident. From then, I am thinking about those boys who have gone on so young, and all of the people I’ve loved who didn’t make it as far as I have, made me realise one thing.

MunnaPrawin

They had dreams. They had goals. They had ambitions. And they no longer have the chance to pursue them. They quite literally have run out of time.

But I haven’t. Not yet. And if I don’t pursue my dreams and ambitions with every tiny bit of my soul, it’s like I’m slapping them in the face.

I’m still here. I’m not done. I’ve got things to do. And quite frankly, I”m not doing them. Break free before time runs out, from all that is holding you back, from all that stopping you to be ‘U’.

“Our only limitations are those we set up in our own mind”. Napoleon Hill

What seems to be impossible for you might be easier than you think!

“I wonder how many times people give up just before the breakthrough”.

It is not over until you say it is over!

Most people don’t need help as much as they need to believe on themselves & go after what they want.

No matter where you are at now in your life, or what challenges you may have, there is always a way out and there is a solution.

The famous Zen master Shunryu Suzuki once said, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” By this he meant that if we view ourselves as the experts of our business who know how everything should be done, we are limiting ourselves to very few opportunities.

MunnaPrawin

When the world is in crisis, many things change, and many opportunities arise. But to see these opportunities, we must let go of our expert-attitude and look at the new reality with a beginner’s mind. We must wake up every day with fresh eyes and truly discern what is different than yesterday.

Every problem has its solution; it is born with it. If you want a different result, make different choice. We don’t see things as they are; we see them as we are. Facing reality can be hard because our brains are wired to be emotionally attached to how things used to be. The past seems known and secure, while an unknown future can make us anxious.

As we know, many of us are attached to our past successes and want to have them back. Because of this emotional attachment, we are at risk of walking in the same direction even if the world has taken a sharp turn the other way. Positive people also have negative thoughts but they just made up their mind to enjoy life. They focus on the possibilities not the problem. They always “align with love and tap into abundance”.

Now is your chance to reimagine the future and the possibilities. It all starts in the mind, in your mind. So look inside, and then leap.

If there is one thing I want you to understand…it’s this.

And I know I’m not the only one stuck in this rut. This is what happens in life when we get complacent. When we let things get easy. “Lost Time is Never Found again” You have ONE life. Don’t waste it by being complacent and settling for ease. You must, must, must get out of your comfort zone to grow and live.

Who am I? I AM a Proud Strong WOMAN


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Life is not an easy journey for every WOMAN. As much as I enjoy being a woman, I don’t think being a woman is easy, not always. There might be times when we hate being  women! No, I’m not talking about the menstrual cramps or pregnancy period or delivery pain. They help bring a beautiful soul into this world, so I believe it’s a gift.

But being a woman is hard — there’s so much for us to do in daily life. I’m talking about these everyday things that make life difficult, just because you’re a woman. There are few constant feelings that come into picture, mostly because we belong to a certain gender. We have stereotypes to break, jobs to excel at, families to care for, lives to lead, friends to hang out with and the world to run. Sometimes we’re so busy making sure everything gets done, we forget to look to the women who have paved the way for all of our awesomeness.

“As a Women should always remember to accept who we are. We are beautiful, talented, valuable human being, so we should learn to love ourself. Of course, there are always exceptions. If you’re a serial killer, if you are person who kept doing mistakes in life then you should probably hold back from being that WOMAN so that you can respect the moral values, obey the law and stay out of prison.”

WhatsApp Image 2020-05-15 at 1.54.35 AM

In addition to our regular challenges  we have to save ourselves from many MEN, which is more challenging. At school, family, college, office place, neighbourhood, everywhere many woman face physical, mental harassment. It can be calls,  messages on WhatsApp, Insta, Facebook and even on Instagram, the messages that woman gets are so disgusting and disturbing. Such messages don’t fail to leave this strange feeling in you, as soon as you read it. No matter how strong or bold you’re, those messages sure do affect you for a minute there.

“I am proud of the woman I am today, because I went through one hell of a time becoming her. A strong woman loves, forgives, walks away, lets go, tries again, and perseveres… not matter what life at her.” 

“One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go.”

What makes me weak? – My fears.

What keeps me standing?- My faith.

What makes me compassionate?- My selflessness.

What makes me honest?- My integrity.

What sustains my mind?- My quest for knowledge.

What teaches me all lessons?- My mistakes.

What lifts my head high?- My pride, not arrogance.

What if I can’t go on?- Not an option.

What makes me victorious?- My courage to climb.

What makes me competent?- My confidence.

What makes me sensual?- My insatiable essence.

What makes me beautiful?- My everything.

What makes me a woman?- My heart .❤️

Who says I need love ?- I do.

What empowers me?- My spirit.

Who am I? IAM A PROUD STRONG WOMAN!!!

“I’m tough, true, ambitious and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, Okay. I am clothed in strength and dignity, and it makes me laughs without fear of the future.” 

“ Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its trouble, it empties of its strength. So, women have to shatter all these barriers and overcome these everyday feelings, before they break the glass ceiling and it’s not always a cake walk.”

LIFE @BERLIN resumed after Covid-19 Lockdown


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

After almost 2 months of Lockdown due to Covid-19, life at Berlin, Germany slowly got resumed. Happy to see kinds playing in the community parks, able to feel the fresh breeze and so delightful to see the trees colouring  themselves in green after almost 5 months. 

States across Germany are deciding how they will relax lockdown restrictions while trying to control the spread of coronavirus. Here’s what to know about Berlin’s latest regulations.

WhatsApp Image 2020-05-01 at 5.55.50 PM

One of the best things about the German lockdown is that there’s never been a restriction on leaving the house for some fresh air. The shops in Berlin are finally open again.  I head into the city centre and find myself stuck in a serious traffic jam. When I finally make it, there’s a feeling of euphoria on the streets. 

Face masks are going to be compulsory from on public transport from next week but there’s a shortage of the proper, medical ones, and they can’t be reused anyway, so people are advised to sew their own “everyday masks”.Some are wearing masks but many are not. But most stick to the social distancing guidelines. There are queues to get inside the shops but it’s all good-natured.

When restrictions are relaxed in the Germany, normal life will not return immediately, and the government is expected to introduce new guidelines for an indeterminate period of time.

Here are some of the changes various industries are preparing to put in place

Transport: Transport system in Berlin has introduced boarding on buses via the middle doors only in order to protect drivers. Companies may ask their employees to begin and end work at different times to avoid putting the transport network under pressure during rush hour, or to alternate days working at home.

Leopoltzplatz

Schools and universities: Schools can open in Berlin from April 27th, provided that the hygiene rules are in place. Schools will open gradually and the local authorities are putting together more information on how this will happen safely. School trips will not be allowed. The Berlin Senate is also planning to bring Kita care back in phased stages, with single parents being entitled to care for their children from Monday April 27th.

Offices: When companies reopen their workspaces, managing movement in offices will be key. The majority of companies will have to implement physical distancing, keeping workers and customers more than two metres apart from each other. Wearing face masks in certain indoor workplaces may also be compulsory.  

Retail: Supermarkets, grocers and other essential retailers that have remained open during the lockdown introduced safety measures to keep shoppers and staff apart, including plastic screens at checkouts, limiting the number of shoppers allowed inside, and floor markings to keep shoppers apart. As restrictions are lifted, similar measures are expected to be introduced in other high street stores.

Restaurants and bars closed: Restaurants, pubs, bars, cafes and clubs will remain closed for the time being – in both Berlin as well as in neighbouring state Brandenburg. Hotels are also not allowed to reopen to tourists, in line with Germany-wide recommendations. Commercial excursions and tours are not allowed. Restaurants are able to offer takeaway as is the case currently.

Hairdressing salons: Hairdressers can reopen from May 4th, in line with Germany-wide recommendations. Strict hygiene measures must be in place. Beauty salons, tattoo studios and similar venues are not allowed to open.

Food and hospitality: All major food chains, Burger King, Mc Donalds , Dominos etc have reopened a limited number of outlets for delivery or takeaway, after introducing safety measures for their employees. Food Stores says it has given its staff masks and gloves and training on maintaining distance from each other.

Museums and libraries: Museums, memorials, non-commercial galleries and similar educational institutions in public and private ownership can reopen from May 4th, provided that hygiene rules are observed. Public libraries may be opened for lending from May 4th, also with safety measures in place.

Sport: Golf could be the first sport to return after the PGA Tour announced plans for four events to take place without spectators from 11 June.  In football, Germany’s top division, the Bundesliga, could resume behind closed doors as early as May after players there returned to training a fortnight ago, but most other leagues remain suspended indefinitely.

BerlinEvents: Events with more than 1,000 people are banned until August 31st, in line with Germany-wide restrictions. Theatres and other performance venues such as operas and concert halls remain closed until July 31st, the end of the season. Large events with more than 5,000 participants will remain prohibited until October 24th. The Berlin Marathon, which last year brought in more than 47,000 participants from around the world, will be cancelled.

Here’s an overview of the draft plan:

  • Initially after the lockdown, some retailers and restaurants could reopen
  • In certain regions, schools could also reopen
  • Major events and private parties are to remain banned for a longer period of time
  • To prevent a renewed rise in coronavirus infections, the paper recommends making it compulsory to wear protective masks in buses, trains, factories and other buildings
  • There would be rapid tracing of infection chains, with infected people having to quarantine at home or in hotels

Parental guide during Covid-19 lockdown


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

The coronavirus outbreak is affecting people across World in different ways. For parents of school-going kids across the countries, the experience has been overwhelming and exhausting. As a parent I can observe and feel that the Parenting is turning to be harder by uncertainty, stress and economic hardship. Parents and children are living with increased stress, media hype and fear, all challenging our capacity for tolerance and long-term thinking.

EULsLOdVAAAFmGQ

The coronavirus pandemic has left a lot of parents panicking about how on earth to make sure their children keep safe and keep learning during lockdown. As schools are closed in various countries around the world, keeping kids engaged at home has become a major concern now. I also learnt that For many, the economic impact of the crisis increases parenting stress, abuse, and violence against children,”

While everyone is fighting the war against coronavirus, you can turn this into an opportunity to make your children learn new skills. Here are few ways to engage your kids at home during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Do not miss this phase of Life

During this lockdown phase, there are going to be interesting, diverse scenarios taking place in homes at the moment. Don’t get frazzled, because teachers don’t lose it – they are quite calm. And just remember that your children are transitioning as well. We need to use lots of negotiation and give and take. crl5azqxeaagy2r

Every parent is concerned because we’re taking up a new role here, which we’ve never had to do before. But it’s not going to be permanent. There’s no quick fix, and you’re not a failure, because this is brand new to us all. The positive thing is, we’re going to get to know our children more.

Talk to your children

First, explain clearly to children why we are all forced to be indoors and the importance of adhering to this restriction. Once they understand the reasoning, you will be surprised at how much more willing they will be to comply.

Parents should talk openly to children about their behaviour because communication was critical at this time. During this phase parents had all the time in world to get to know their children a little bit more. It was the perfect opportunity to have regular discussions with them.

Set up a Daily routine

91tmCTsTBtL._AC_SX569_It starts with a routine, not only for kids but also for us parents. Creating a schedule with a daily routine can be an effective way to tackle anxiety. This would make the kids feel at ease, safer and more relaxed.

The important thing here is to create a plan with some room for flexibility. Set up a schedule for waking up, eating, and learning activities and fun things to do. This will help you as well as the kids to feel normalcy while also maintaining discipline.

Let them start painting!

You can plan and conduct any painting challenge with innovative painting ideas. Each day, you can make them give painting one hour of their time and simply experiment with whatever idea they get for the day.It can be anything from a fruit, a memory, a place or abstract designs with paint.

Painting is a very natural form of expression and it can be meditative too as it soothes their mind and keeps it calm. So, let you kids go ahead and explore this creative language!

Engage them in doing exercises and practicing yoga

father-and-child

Exercising improves strength, flexibility, agility, and mobility and most importantly it can help build your kids immunity during this Coronavirus pandemic.

Practice meditation and pranayama to destress your life and relax their soul. This will also inculcate a lot of energy and boost their stamina.

Let them chat to friends

It’s really important for the children to communicate with their friends. Parents can set up Zoom talks, skype calls with their children’s friends. Not every day, but during the week, there should be some way they’re connected with somebody else that’s not you, and not another adult.

Plan virtual fun activities with their peers

Plan fun activities over video call with their peers to give them time to socialise. Making study groups can be a great way to make your kids socialise and will decrease the feeling of isolation.

Create an activity plan with parents of their peers so that they can do some activities together over video calls for example, quizzes, karaoke, singing competitions, story telling, DIY activities .

Support them to Grow plants at home

This lockdown time can be utilized in growing plants in your garden. Make your kids grow as many plants as they can. Encourage them them in gardening by making them grow tulsi and aloe vera which emit oxygen.

2048x1365-10-gardening-projects-for-kids-LI3710271-82bb07d

As the world is deprived of clean air, they will work wonders when they grow into trees in a few decades even if you may not be there to see them. If you grow 5 to 10 oxygen-emitting plants, you will add to the pre-existing resources.

Give them a push to Make Creative stuff

Engage the kids in creative activities of all kinds. Stock up on craft supplies (instead of toilet paper!). Make paintings, knit a scarf, start a daily sketchbook journal, create a stash of cute pop-up cards, sew a baby quilt, make a scrapbook.

Teach them how to bake cookies and bread and how to make simple dinners such as homemade mac ‘n cheese, vegetable soup, and pasta sauce. Build an awesome cardboard box fort, tree fort, or set up an indoor tent. Redecorate a bedroom.

Try and limit screen time

Lots of parents have contacted us to say they’re worried about children sitting in front of the computer for five hours a day.

Parents will be strongly tempted to stick their kids in front of screens for multiple hours a day, just to get their own work done, but this isn’t healthy, nor is it fair to kids who deserve more of an active role from their parents, especially if they’re missing school. I think it’s reasonable to let them have a half-hour a day . Whatever screen time rules you set should be made clear up front, so that the temptation for kids to ask is eliminated right away. (And if they keep asking, they lose the privilege of watching altogether.)

Let them watch Inspirational movies and educational TV series

There is a long list of TV series that will educate your kids on various topics. The National Geographic documentaries are a way fun way to learn. Let your kid pick the genre of their choice and go watch them online. There are many online learning portals and youtube channels for kids.

If you have access to a Netflix connection or Amazon Prime, there are a vast number of documentaries and docu-series you can watch on a variety of genres.If you want to watch the top movies, just check out the IMDB top 50 list and check which ones you haven’t watched. If you are lucky, you can find them online or you can always download.

Get their hands deep in experiments

Give your kids some time to focus on fun activities like DIY science experiments, craft, drawing, watching documentaries and educational videos.Try to not be too hard on them (remember, they are having a hard time). Save your interventions for when you really need them! reading-for-meaning

Let them Lose in good books

Book reading is always a best habit. These are certain books that people of all ages can enjoy here are a few engaging books your kid should be able to find interesting .  You can find books online for free to make this Coronavirus lockdown time a fun experience for their lazing around with an engrossing book.

Share the responsibility

We need to jointly plan and give them that sense of responsibility. It’s quite powerful for them to take control of what they’d like to do. And if that’s being in their room drawing, then give them that time, make them exhausted from doing that, because they will get bored very soon.

1487881213-do-chores-smarter

And when they want to do other things, that’s where, as a parent, you’ve already got all these resources and ideas ready to go.

Encourage them to Learn a new language

Learning a language is a fun experience but it does need dedication. A language learned will give anyone an edge over others. It will add weight to their profile and will help them in career as well.

0213-mothertongue_0

That will also open new avenues of education and jobs in the future.Check out the various online courses and mobile apps available to easily learn new languages. Make them attend the online classes and appear for the test to get an online certificate for their new language skill! This will not let them get bored while everything is locked down.

Learn about future goals & understand your role

Its wonderful opportunity for every parent to understand their kinds needs and learn about their life goals. If they do not have any yet, its time where you explain them what is goal and why they are important in life. Make them read books, magazines, online websites on career planning and life goals and plan your targets in life.

Ask your child to list down what they want to be 10 years from now and let them start working on their goals during the Covid-19 lockdown.Study journals and books that will take them closer to their dreams and start working on them. This practice can become the most fruitful practice during the Coronavirus lockdown period.

Last, but not the least, share your stories

All of us like posting our pictures and stories on our social media accounts. So, tell us how you spent your day when everything is locked down. Share with us on the mail or on our Facebook pageLately, people have been playing with Instagram challenges, posting stories, and asking questions Covid-19. Write about how you made a quarantine time period productive.You can also start your own blog about what you are doing during the Coronavirus lockdown and post there every day along with interesting photos of what you are doing around the house.

School, colleges shutdown is also a chance to make better relationships with our children and teenagers. One-on-One time…makes children feel loved and secure, and shows them that they are important.

Children are quite observant about what it is going on in their surrounding environment. Regardless of age, every kid is aware that the lifestyle has currently taken a pause and can sense that the adults around them are at unease. So communication becomes the utmost necessity wherein talking with your children in a calm, simple and factual way enables you to control the narrative, providing essential information without promoting distress.

Placing boundaries on media exposure is a good preventative action. Try to think of yourself as their mentor and step up! Do reach out to your friends and family in time of need. Remember, this will pass.

A crisis often brings out the best in you and you discover qualities that you never knew existed within. 

A time of crisis is not just a time of anxiety and worry. It gives a chance, an opportunity, to choose well or to choose badly.

Any deep crisis is an opportunity to make your life extraordinary in some way.

Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up.

As for any of us in crisis, hope is the one thing that’s everything. 

Trust me, we together beat this crisis. Stay at Home, Stay Safe.

Reality of Today´s World


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Well its a proven fact as we go up in some ways we definitely are going down in other its the very fundamental law of our own existence. As the humanity is excelling in various fields such as medical science ,communication and artificial intelligence we generally forget to see our roots or reason of our own very existence.

We, so called HUMANS are greedy, angry, creepy, violent, perverted, jealous, and conceited. We lie, we cheat, we steal, we betray, we corrupt and we act like we can get away with it.

Todays-Reality-Funny-Technology-Cartoon

We live in a world, where monsters are respected And humans are discriminated

We live in a world, where  fools are rulers And genius is a struggle

We live in a world, where everyone speaks about rules, But no one follows it

We live in a world, where we speak about Feminism, But donno how to treat Women

We live in a world, where everyone wants fresh air, But No one wants to plant a tree..!!

We live in a world, where People are judged But never supported.

We live in a strange world, where Liars are trusted And truthful is defamed.

We live in a world, People love for selfish gain But not for other to make them proud

Strange is the world we live in, We are human with lost humanity.

365387-Today-s-Reality

We live in selfish,greed,inequality,hiding the truth(although not lying),comparison among themselves,lack of selflessness,following mindset,lack of patience,lack of true love and peace,feminism(mostly anti-masculine) and most important LACK OF TRUST.

We all are living in fake world driven by others thinking or i can say we all are showing our fake reality which is not govern by ourself but by others thought of perfection. When we look our society we see people discriminating each other on basis of religion ,caste, sex even we are educated. Our politics also get affected by religions , even in this modern world we have this type of society.

I hope with the growing human race in various fields we should also consider our basic characteristic and the reason of our existence and try to spread peace,love and harmony as much as we can and never compare anyone with anyone and respect and admire everyone’s uniqueness.

Choose SUN to know your personality


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Our beloved shapes and forms can tell a lot about our hidden traits, as relational psychology and drawing psychology testing suggest — pick a sun and see what your choice says about you.

We have prepared for you a little psychological test.

The sun has always had a special place in religion and culture through the history of mankind. In this test we’ll ask you to rest your mind, look at this picture of 8 suns, pick one that seems the most appealing, and find out something new about yourself!

unnamed
  1. Your special personality trait is always being positive and always looking for a way to improve yourself. You are not easily discouraged and intent to stand your ground at all times. Your glass is definitely “half full.”

    This approach to life not only makes you resilient, but also makes you a great friend who can support your loved ones in any situation. You are outgoing, but sometimes you keep to yourself to not hurt people. This allows you to sift through the people you are around and leaves you with only a few truly good friends.

  2. There are two really important things for you — personal space and respect from your peers and loved ones. More introvert, than extrovert, you are not distant from other people, but just more reserved.

    You value simple, good traits like honesty and kindness, and you’re always there for your friends. This is why you should also beware of people using you only for their gain. Always trust your sixth sense, because it will lead you out of those types of situations.

  3. You are smart, very curious, and courageous when it comes to new adventures and knowledge. Very honest and transparent, you are openminded and try to keep your judgement unclouded.

    You are a natural-born leader and a guide to others. They rely heavily on your sense of right and wrong and value your educated opinion.

  4. The hallmark of your personality is endless energy and restlessness. You are torn by a hundred ideas at a time. You are always willing to face new challenges and get really hyped at the opportunity to try something new.

    You are beaming with a love for life, which you are trying to live to the fullest. And that’s what makes you a person with great life goals, just be sure to not get distracted.

  5. You have the outstanding ability and willingness to help others with their problems. You love helping people in need and sometimes it may even seem like you have a hero complex — because who else would be better at saving the world than you?

    You are a beam of light and inspiration in the lives of others. You are an intelligent person, but you don’t always share your thoughts with other people.

  6. People who pick out this sun are generally joyful, fun-loving people who enjoy every little detail of life. Every obstacle in your way is just another reason to learn something new.

    You don’t shy away from constructive criticism, and always maintain your cordial and cheerful disposition with others. People perceive you as trustworthy and as a person who has a lot of leadership skills.

  7. You are easily inspired by new goals and you really go the extra mile to take them on — but there are usually way too many. In fact, one lifetime is not enough to fulfill them all. If you want your major dreams come true — you’ll need to figure out which ones are the most important for you.

    Other people see you as someone energetic and persevering, who does not know when to quit. You are a positive influence on others.

  8. Your patience is enviable. You don’t hold grudges and you are not easily offended. As a person, you are incredibly mature, somebody who likes to think things through and avoid mistakes.

    Although love and other feelings are important to you, they tend to take a back seat to your rational mind and intelligence.

    Was this test true to your personality? Be sure to share with us in the comments below.

Oldest Zoo in Germany


Berlin Zoo, It’s the oldest zoo in Germany – but totally modern. The Zoo Berlin and the Aquarium Berlin are a highlight for all the family. Recently i visited Berlin Zoo and I felt its worth sharing with wide audience. One of the things I love about this zoo is the architecture of the animal houses. Chickens get half timbers, bison get totem poles and giraffes get minarets. Isn’t it cute?

Berlin Zoo is the most biodiverse zoo in the world and at the same time the oldest zoo in Germany, opened in 1844. More than 20,000 animals in over 1,500 forms live in the green oasis in the heart of Berlin.

Zoos are places where wild animals are kept for public display. The term ‘ZOO’ stands short for zoological park or zoological garden, and can also be named animal park or menagerie.

Zoos contain wide varieties of animals that are native to all parts of the Earth.Zoos are often the sites of sophisticated breeding centers, where endangered species may be protected and studied. Some zoos, like this aquarium in Monterey,

Zoos are places where you can spend a quality afternoon with your family and friends admiring the beauties and diversities mother nature has given us. On the more technical aspect, a zoo is a facility that houses animals within enclosures, displays them to the public and it’s a place where the animals are bred.

IMG-20200210-WA0102 IMG-20200210-WA0207flusspferdbulle_zoo_berlin

Zoo parks are fun and entertaining places to spend time at. However, ordinary visitors must start thinking about how humanity affects nature and how can they contribute to saving the planet. The zoos offer a lot of information on the concrete steps to take so that the wonders we see and love in these types of facilities aren’t going to disappear in the wild.

Aquarium Berlin in the heart of Berlin is one of Europe’s best-known and most notable aquariums. Behind the building’s historic façade awaits an impressive diversity of species that few facilities in the world can rival.  The aquarium was built in 1913 as part of the Zoologischer Garten complex. In addition to fish and other aquatic life, it is home to most of the zoo’s reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates.

The Aquarium Berlin, which you can also visit separately, has biotopes for sharks, piranhas and coral reef fish.

The Aquarium not only houses numerous extraordinary fish, it is also home to hundreds of impressive reptiles and insects.

The terrariums contain insects, amphibians and reptiles. Jellyfish pulse in glass cylinders. The aquarium is home to 13,000 animals. We have separate enclosures for reptiles.

Among them are seven species of sharks, crocodiles, manatees, naked mole-rats, Nile hippos, aardvarks and extra ordinary fish.

Giraffenhaus_Zoo_Berlin_2 IMG-20200210-WA0192

I walked around and saw sea lions, seals, hippos and penguins while the others went to the aquarium. Each year, millions of visitors of all ages come to Zoo Berlin for a delightful day out – with family, with friends, or alone.  Zoo Berlin is the perfect place to take the kids for a short getaway – any day of the year!

Resignation is not a CRIME


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Employee Resignation, we know it is inevitable in any organization. Sooner or later, even the best employer has employees resign. The reasons are endless for what causes an employee resignation. But, each employee resignation poses the employer with the same series of questions. Unexpected resignations present big challenges for leaders, managers especially those unaccustomed to dealing with them. It’s probably a frustration you haven’t had for a whileand if you’re a relatively new manager, you might not have ever experienced this before.

WhatsApp Image 2020-01-22 at 10.19.52 AM

As our team members grow in their careers, they may branch out beyond what is available to them in their current role or company. Sometimes, what they are looking for next isn’t something we can offer.  I agree, It’s a dreadful moment when a well-liked member of your team tenders their resignation. You experience a cocktail of emotions ranging from fear about how the rest of the team will react.

As with most difficult situations as a manager, how you handle the resignation will affect more than just you. When someone shares news of their resignation, here’s how to handle it with grace and support so they leave with a great lasting impression of you and the organization.

Be supportive: Congratulate them on their new gig and new opportunity. They’ve worked hard to reach this point. Even if you wish they were staying, honor that they’ve accomplished something great in their career, with you by their side. Now it’s time to let the bird fly.

Collaborate and communicate: You can’t control how others react to the news, but you can control how it gets communicated. Be honest and open when communicating the departure to other stakeholders and team. Explain the circumstance in plain language and assure them “you are working hard to find a suitable replacement and doing your best to make the transition as smooth as possible,”.

Thank them for their efforts: Remember all the things they’ve contributed to your company. Highlight the qualities you admire in them. Thank them for their time on your team, and if it’s true, let them know you’ve enjoyed working with them.

Be curious: Now that you have made clear that you are supportive and grateful, it’s safe to get curious about what they’re excited about taking on next. This is also a good time to ask for input on what wasn’t working well in their current role. Many departing employees are reluctant to share any negative feedback on their way out for fear of burning bridges. If that’s the case, look for what drew them to their new role, so you can assess whether that’s something you could have offered but failed to, or not.

Gauge their interest in staying: Sometimes an employee is dissatisfied but not actually ready to leave. They may want to stay but fear the opportunities they are looking for don’t exist on your team. Other times they are hoping for a salary increase and see a job offer as a negotiation tactic. Make sure you understand if they truly want to leave, or if there’s room to explore changes in team, role, or pay that might change their mind. Are they open to staying? Is there more pay or a different opportunity within the team that might meet their’s and your needs? A change in geography? If they’re open to it, continue the conversation.

Transfer knowledge: Now you have some difficult decisions to make about how to divvy up responsibilities while you’re short-staffed. Acknowledge that your team will have a “workload problem” for a time and that people are likely to  “feel overburdened,” but also use the departure as an opportunity to “talk to employees about their careers and opportunities for growth,” . During the exiting employee’s notice period, set up an “extensive shadowing mechanism” so that those taking over his responsibilities can absorb what they need to.

Make a hiring plan: It highly recommended to coordinate with HR to formally list a job opening as soon as possible. This helps people on your team understand that this is temporary,”. Ask employees for input on what skills, experience and qualities they would like to find in the new hire. Perhaps they know people — inside or outside the company — who would be a good fit. Or an internal promotion might be in order, and this could be a chance for someone to expand and grow into the role. It also recommended reconsidering your team configuration. “Ideally you should operate at some level of overcapacity so that when you lose an employee, you don’t need to panic. This little bit of redundancy doesn’t need to cost you more — think about whether you could hire two part-time people instead of one fulltime person.

Remain available to them for the remainder of their time at the company: Don’t cancel one-on-one meetings just because they’re leaving. You want to remain supportive for as long as they are part of your team. This is a sign of respect and the right thing to do. In our increasingly networked professional circles, it’s also the smart thing to do. You never know: they could be your boss someday.

Honor their ultimate decision: Whether they renege on the offer they’d taken or stay committed to leaving the company, honor their decision and assume it’s the right path for them. If they’re going, plan a farewell gathering to thank this person for their hard work.

Don’t be hard on yourself: Remember that when someone leaves, it doesn’t always mean we’ve done a bad job (though definitely poke into what’s causing their departure). Sometimes it can mean we’ve done a great job in preparing them for what’s next, and they’re ready for bigger and better opportunities thanks to you that may not be available to them in your current company. If their needs could have been met on your team, take this as a learning opportunity. Think about how you can better support your existing team and how you’ll set the next person in this role up for success. And then, it’s time to move on.

Have a party: On the employee’s last day, it’s important to gather your team to “thank the person who’s leaving and wish them well,” . It doesn’t have to be a big party; it could be coffee and donuts in the conference room. But the act of celebration is key. After all, “it’s not only about the person who is leaving. It’s also about the people who are staying,” You are rewarding the people for whom it’s going to be a difficult few weeks.” Failing to acknowledge an employee’s departure and his or her contributions sends a bad message to your team. It’s important to humanize the work relationship.

Sample, Thank you note “MunnaPrawin is leaving us to pursue new opportunities at @ *$&/ company. His last day in our Organization is Feb 14. Please join me in wishing Mary tremendous success in his future endeavors. Please join us to wish Prawin success in his new employment and to say good-bye.”

Principles to Remember:

Do´s

  • Immediately develop a hiring plan to replace the employee
  • Frame the resignation as an opportunity for remaining team members to take on new responsibilities and learn new things
  • Publicly acknowledge the employee’s departure and his contributions to the team

Dont´s

  • Take the resignation personally; instead, retain your relationship with the employee by engaging in a friendly conversation about future plans
  • Try to counter-offer unless it’s absolutely necessary — you’ll have more success if you wait a year and then try to recruit them back
  • Be blindsided again. Make an effort to talk to your team about their professional interests and needs

Support Your Employees, No Matter Where They Are

In the end, remember that the business of losing an employee is more than just, well, business. No matter the circumstances, make sure you both leave on good terms. Wish her well in her new position, offer to be a reference in the future, and encourage her to keep in touch. Even if her performance wasn’t the greatest during those last two weeks, there’s no need to burn that bridge—you never know when you’ll cross paths again in the future.

Losing an employee (especially a great one) is tough—but as a manager, you’ll have to face it sooner or later. So, it’s best to be prepared with a plan of action—and, of course, a heartfelt card and farewell cake can always help ease the pain, too.

Why is it that when someone resigns they are treated like an enemy? Life is too short. Be happy for others and happiness will always surround you. Agree?

When an employee resigns:
1) Thank them for all their contributions.
2) Treat them with respect.
3) Wish them the best.

No matter how educated, talented, which position you hold, rich or cool you believe you are, how you treat others tells all. Integrity is everything.

Pat on back from others, may hold you Back


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Be aware of the pat on the back from others! It might be the one thing that holds you back.

In current weakened society, one of the methods people believe works is to give an instant pat on the back to someone once they do something positive/correct, etc. While this may be an effective method, all you are truly doing is weakening one person’s mind. You are essentially training a person to expect a congratulations/ an attaboy, etc., for every fucking thing they do. But, we are forgetting the very basic principles of being a basic fucking human being. Instead of the pat-on-the-back method, why not try this one? The fucking “supposed to” method!

It is our job as leaders and teachers to teach people to not always look for the pat on the back rather to build a mindset that we are supposed to do and be our best all the time in every situation. We shouldn’t look for anything from anybody for simply doing our best.

You are supposed to get up early, make your bed and clean your house. You are supposed to work out almost every day. You are supposed to do the best you can in school every day. You are supposed to bring your best effort to work every day.

That pat on the back should only come when you have exceeded what most people consider exceptional work or have gone above and beyond what is expected.

Don’t expect a pat on the back for the shit that a human being is supposed to be doing every day of their lives and that is being the best that he/she can be in every situation in their life. It’s not about you. It’s about your team, the ones you love, and having pride in yourself. It’s not about what others think or feel about you- it’s about how you feel about yourself.

Like I say we(humans) don’t need approval, we know what we are supposed to do and just do it out of love for our family community country and lastly self. As long as I go above and beyond and can look at myself In the mirror and smile, it’s all good, “well done good and faithful servant” is the only praise I seek and I ain’t getting that in this life

Sometimes you just have to pat your own back for all that you do. Well, today is your day! Today recognize your accomplishments, your abilities, your personal greatness and give yourself a pat on the back. You’re not being conceited, you’re not being vain, you’re being proud of who you are and what you do.

Everyday congratulate yourself, thank yourself, check your path correct yourself and give yourself a big pat on the back. We must not forget to pat ourselves on the back for all that we’ve accomplished so far! It’ll fill us with great positivity and energy to move forward in life.

Give Yourself a Pat on the Back. Don’t Be Afraid to Be Proud

Don’t be afraid to wear your pride on your sleeve,. Too often we fear being proud of ourselves for the concern that others will see us as cocky or boastful. But there is nothing wrong with giving ourselves a pat on the back or hearty congratulations when we have accomplished something- big, small, anything! DO not wait for someone to congratulate you. Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds.
