What Separates the Men from The Boys...

...is how they respond in the event of a crisis. It is very easy to talk idealistically, but when faced with a real life situation, most people behave in a risk-averse manner. (In the corporate world, we call it CYA - Cover Your Ass). Unfortunately, this asinine behaviour does not help anyone. The men among the boys however take charge of the situation, and do what honourable men would do, without worrying too much about remote consequences.... They are willing to take bold decisions and act on them, for the immediate benefit of helpless souls without over analysing on how their actions can be interpreted at a later stage... They do not worry about 'What is in it for me?' when situations demand that you do the right thing.... Hubby dear, you often figure in this blog only during February...But, today I want to shout out to the whole world...I am proud I married a man - and a great and honourable one at that !!! This idealistic wife, loves the way you help her to translate her…

I am carrying a parachute though, just in case...Afterall, self-help is the best help... Trivia of the day: I hate the term self-help. We had an English grammar book series by the name 'self-help' and I could never master it without outside help :P Trivia of the Day 2: I wish time travel was a reality....I could move back and forth and learning history could have been a breeze ! In fact, learning everything would have been so easy - and so pointless..…

April Sunshine

Yes, in more ways than one, summer is here ! My resolution for March has been to talk positive. Well, didn't always work - given my short temper, it was anyway quite a challenge...But, a lot of nice things happened in March. My sis came visiting - and we did find some time to spend with each other ! I have been focusing heavily on managing my finances in the last couple of months - learnt a lot of new things. If you want to improve your financial literacy - this is a good place to start. The advice there will not confuse you, and it will not goad you into buying products that you will regret later. If you have a mathematical bend of mind like me, then go here. The financial calculators are elegant and nicely done, and you need to give very less inputs! This month is going to be all about action. I have spend almost a year thinking and planning - and now I am going to put all that into practice - in my professional life, in managing my finances and so on. The baby steps have alr…
