Practise as if you are the worst, perform as if you are the best ;)

Have you ever been felt that you are torturing your Manager with your high performance…!?!

"Performance stands out like a ton diamonds. Non performance can always be explained away" ~ Harold S Geneen

It seems like…there is a trend in this project…where things takes place at a slower rate…and my quick and on time deliverables…were more or less considered as a headache…:D, as what to give next task :D…

"Let your performance do the thinking" ~ H Jackson Brown Jr.

yes, and guess what…yesterday I was given a task which has lot of meetings for requirement gathering and understanding the process flow and procedures to be written…and all this made me so excited that I have something where I can spend time …but guess what….due to some unavoidable circumstances….everything got postponed…!

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future, it is something you design for the present” ~ Jim Rohn



I am not sure was it good or bad…as sitting in my cubicle…staring at the pc screen…where I cannot log on to any other sites…or even personal emails…:( ….clock was just not ticking right…when I started staring at the tissue box which was lying on my desk…it had this flower and the humming bird….don’t know what striked to my mind and I started sketching…;) …..and am proud for something like what has come out ;)

“You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind” ~ MK Gandhi

I think…one can do a lot even from nothing…;)….

"Art is making something out of nothing and selling it." ~ Frank Zappa

I had this productive day today….a poetry and these pictures…came out of my wandering passionate mind…:)

“I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind” ~Antoine de Saint

u can play a bounce ball or yo-yo instead to starting at the PC or better still take printouts of Ebooks and then bind them :))

Perfect things to do when things move slowly in office.

Hehe story of my life! Looks like my "high performance" made them send me packing to a team where even the requirements are abstract!!

The sketches were absolutely wonderful Dawn. I have a tissue box and all, but I doubt I can sketch, I can look at the sites though ;) so here I am.

Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong...

This time of the year, I really miss India, specially Pune. Growing up in Pune as a Malayalee (Keralite) is one thing but I grew up watching...
