Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Could we look at life as a game of slopes – a series of pre-destined slopes, where all one needs to do is maintain speed, temperament and attitude as per the gradient!
Life – a way more overwhelming experience than its 4-letter meanness. It is a journey which is ideally meant to enjoy, and which we apparently do (as per our vivid Facebook profiles), but with a hidden agenda.
An agenda of reaching ‘Our Niche’. A niche which has our dream house, dream education for our kids, the dream diet plan, the dream ‘spirituality’ and so on…
Something which initially start as goals during our youth years, become rushed ambitions as ‘life’ merged into middle age and if still not achieved, just unfulfilled desires towards the end.
So what are these slopes we speak about?
This one is obviously the difficult climb. However the end of it is a point higher than where we start.
A positive attitude, patience and strong will/’legs’ will make sure we reach the top, not tired; but with bursting energy to enjoy the new heights our perseverance had led us to reach.
This slope are those most challenging phases of our lives where the climb is ‘breath taking’ literally; with no end in sight. The climb is so steep that the end of it is hardly visible.
All the positive thinking books we might have ever read, or motivational sermons attended, are put to test during this slope.
If we keep our strengths up during this one, the rewards at the end of the walk would be truly fulfilling.
This is the walk which comes after we have overcome slope 1 or slope 2. The Walk of Normalcy. No extra efforts needed. Just walk and enjoy the heights achieved.
There are also times when life brings us to slopes which are a lot of fun! The ride is extremely easy; so easy that we feel like God’s special people. We zip and zoom through this ride. The catch here is to maintain a controlled temperament while enjoying the thrill this ride has to offer. The control would help us to get back to work once the ride has ended.
All our lives, comprise of these slopes with varying gradient and length.
For some the exhilaration and thrill might last a day or a year, and for some it might last most of their life.
The consolation is that these slopes are sort of pre-decided by destiny or Karma.
However it is on us to judge at what gradient our life is currently at, and play along accordingly!

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Asking women of the office to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Asking women to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Why is the task of handing over bouquets to dignitaries at social and business events primarily a feminine task?
This question nags me endlessly. I cringe at the sight of women waiting in a loosely formed queue at the steps leading up to the stage at these events.
