It is the biggest satisfaction as a trainer. The feedback helps me in polishing my skills and moving a step ahead to satisfy them.
On 12/02/2011, at about 1815 hrs., I was sitting on the wall of the Telangkhedi lake, alongwith my friend. Another couple was sitting near us, on the same wall. Suddenly, a boy aged about 20-25 yrs., came running on the said wall. He missed me but his leg hit the other girl (the couple) and he fell, into the lake. Nothing happened to him as he knew swimming but had he hit me and had I fell into the lake, the result would have been fatal, as I do not know swimming. The security people – two from Shree Agencies- did nothing to stop the boy.
Ever thought of what significance color carries in association with a brand and how the brand associates with the logo ? This question came to my mind while i was going through success strategies of Proctor & Gamble ( P & G ) in recreating two of its brand – Tide and Mr Clean – as dry cleaning and car wash franchises. Everyone is aware that both the brands are very successful in India and overseas. Then what is the need for P & G to enter dry cleaning and car washing ?
I believe that all of us on this earth are destined to fulfill specific purpose in life and once that purpose is fulfilled we leave. We plan our future but as we move on in life we find ourselves on different path and doing something very different from what had been planned. We meet many people in our life time who help us in accomplishing things meant for us. They stay with us and once their purpose is fulfilled they depart. I will quote my example here – When i was studying MBA i planned to work in a good Multinational Company and earn good living.
I was touched after reading Dadaji Khobragade story in today's Times of India i.e 16th November 2010. The headline “ Farmer named by Forbes is landless today “ motivated me to read that article and write about it. Dadaji Khobragade was listed in Forbes magazine as one of the seven most powerful Rural Indian Entrepreneurs. He developed highly successful variety of paddy – HMT rice – that gives more yield than conventional varieties. He is landless today. What a pathetic situation ?
We all are aware of the proverb that success goes to those who strive hard for it. They don't wait for opportunity but create opportunities and achieve their goal. Whats the difference between people who are just speakers and those who grab every small opportunity and work with full devotion and determination, the difference is lots of people just speak and don't do it while those who do don't boast and are focused towards their goal. I have seen people waiting for the right day, right time and opportune moment to start a business or new work.
Today's corporate world follow ethics to be successful. There is no doubt that unethical business fails somewhere and has no consistency in the long run. To keep going company's principles, rules and regulations should be grounded or else its very hard to succeed. First 5 years are very hard to sustain for any newly formed organization. But once the organization builds trust and creates a good customer base no competitor can shake it and the company is bound to grow and prosper.
Life is a learning process and we learn everyday. There is a lot to learn from every human being, animals and insects. Have you ever thought if small honey bees would stop gathering nectar, flowers will not be pollinated and some fruits may not develop. So the apples or grapes which we eat would not be tastier if flowers were not pollinated by honey bees. Small efforts of honey bees helps in maintaining natural equilibrium. If a student is expecting good marks he/ she should put in small efforts everyday to get good results. We sometimes think why is it necessary to study everyday.
Every company big or small wants satisfied customers and leaves no stone unturned to satisfy and pamper them. Companies come up with different schemes and packages to woo customers. After all customer is king and if the king is unhappy then things will really turn gloomy. Every branded company has got a good customer service department to help clients solve their problems with the product, service or store. We as customers are liable to get good service from the company and if we get problems with the product we can directly complain them and solve the problem.
