The ambition was yours, the passion too, success too so why not accept failures and still live a longer and again revive as after all dark tunnel, light will come and even if light will not come, you can again move back from the darkness in same path till you again come back to some light, back to square one and again start afresh. Happy friendship day..

Winning Edge

Maria ‘I am just fedup of this whole rigomore of politics. Just want to exit party as I feel am not capable of handling it more.. The recent defeat’

Nancy.. an ace political advisor ‘dear.. the opposition focused on nationalism and won’

Maria ‘is caste, color, creed, religion still playing role for votes’

Nancy ‘unfortunately it does.. and then the employment of our own citizens’

Bob the opposition party lead calls up Maria

Bob ‘Maria.. agreed we both have different political view.. but please come for celebrating my victory’

Maria puts the phone down.. as she remembers her past

Maria was a good writer, a blogger, a journalist deeply in love with Bob till one day Bob decides to be spokesman of an upcoming political party. Maria feels this is not right for him.. Both have difference of opinion and she seperates from him only to find herself getting an offer from a major party to be their PR. Soon because of her strong writing, content.. she becomes party leader and though Bob keeps loving her till date, still because of ideology difference..

Maria wipes her tears and attends Bob’s winning party

Bob ‘Maria.. how much I knew you would come’

Maria ‘have put up my papers’

Bob ‘what.. just a mere defeat and you moved away’

Maria ‘I am still trying to figure out.. what I wish to do in life. ‘

Bob ‘why don’t we unite’

Maria ‘our ideologies differ’

Bob ‘winning edge dear.. may be internally we both may be having same views’

Maria ‘seriously.. why all this’

Bob ‘look at the perks available to be a politician… never we can get as common citizen’

Maria ‘Bob… is it the only reason you have become a Minister’

Bob ‘Maria… am always there for you… enjoy the party’

3 months later

Bob ‘Maria.. you never told me .. you made an app to resolve issues of people’

Maria ‘it is funded venture..’

Bob ‘I can easily acquire your venture’

Maria ‘not possible.. it is funded by the major party

Bob ‘common.. 1 million downloads and 50000 problems solved..’

Maria ‘you too solve problems’

Bob ‘you know it is so busy.. have to keep traveling overseas’

Maria ‘political intention towards people most import.. good bye’

ME TOO

Me too is a concept, where in we imitate an object / objective as it is a proven model. It gives us sense of pleasure, security and feeling of togetherness. What happens when a Me too individual begins bring in differentiators?

Soon the group feeling is gone, now there is a spirit of competition. Again the left group get into Me too mode and begin building the same features…

The same Me too goes for a toss if someone wishes to really do something unique which is not yet proven.. Here the Me too becomes You only.. and only you need to prove that your solution is unique.. It can be tiring, real hard to convince group of people that you are doing things right. It could be like breaking head against wall.

The moment the solution begins getting accepted, there will again be multiple Me Toos emerging saying ”we all along knew this would work.. we knew this would fail.. we always cautioned… we always cared and so on”

So it is our choice …. should we be ME TOO or should we be the first innovator of any crazy thought to convert that thought to a reality.’

COLLECTING IDEAS

Sony loves collecting ideas and which better way then to use standard survey questionnaire method…

In her survey campaign she comes across James a journalist

Sony ‘James… is there a way by which I can collect 10000 ideas in a single day’

James ‘Simple..  Put a problem statement and ask solutions.. Best solution gets 10000 provided the resource gives a workable solution and can demonstrate the solution’

Sony ‘cool. my problem statement is as follows’

How to complete any project within time and budget with a guaranteed success?’

 

Responding

She came on her own to express her problem

She expressed that it does not have solution..

He expressed that any problem can have a solution.

She responded ‘How?’

He asked her the problem statement

She responded ‘I cannot cope with failure’

He responded ‘failures are nothing but proofs that you actually attempted it.. ‘

She remained silent

He responded ‘just attempt and then keep attempting.. and stop worrying of counts.. enjoy the process of attempts’

 

Next term

Sam ‘am fed up of giving that paper.. failed 5th time.. is there a solution to get a degree’

Jignesh ‘:) 5th year.. going strong… no solution.. just doesn’t go inside my head’

Mani ‘this is going to not end.. am dropping out of college if I again flunk exam’

Nancy ‘you guys are lucky.. as your parents are there to support. for me in California, here in LA.. I will have no options but to commit suicide if I flunk.. my parents have taken huge loan’

Professor Gib is hearing these conversations sitting on other side of garden seat..

Gib goes near their sit..

Gib ‘Hello.. why do not you guys utilize time and start something of your own’

Nancy ‘we are failed entities.. almost gone’

Gib ‘you may have one common thread’

Nancy ‘friendship’

Gib ‘make a friendship barometer which will put various episodes of your life and how you folks were with each other in thick and thin and get going’

Jignesh ‘cool..  but who will do it.. None know coding.. we are extremely pathetic’

Gib ‘draw a story board.. what all the barometer needs and then get going’

All of them get in serious discussions and realize that emotion quotient is most important for being friends..

They rush to Gib and ask one question

‘Why do we fail Sir.. Always? we feel we will not be able to work on this project too’

Gib ‘do you know why you fail?’

All echo ‘Why?’

Gib ‘you do not like to attempt.. you feel lazy to think.. you do not like what you are doing and then… all will remain failed creatures’

Jignesh ‘Any solution?’

Gib ‘PASSION FRAMEWORK feels Dream alone can make a human begin probing and Reality of life will make a person innovating…  so begin probing self as to what you lack and innovate self…  Do not mug entire paper.. attempt to get only 50. Learn 5 chapters out of 10.. perfectly.. and think of getting 60 marks.. you are sure to get 45 at least’

All ponder

6 months latter

Nancy ‘where is Gib Sir.. Want to thank him.. this time I passed..’

All ‘yes we too… where is he.. he gave an important lesson of life..

aim for only what you can do.. if you really feel incapable and get going.. you will get a clear road ahead’

 

 

Fragile Mind

Louis ‘even after being in college for so many years.. I get confused at times in class.. teaching to bunch of intelligent students’

Mark ‘class preparation most important for teaching’

Louis ‘why do we tend to get confused?’

Mark ‘as a psychology teacher.. I can inform you..  what we wish in our mind and heart.. we only follow that..  no mater who pursues you in your decision making process.. it is your mind and heart which took decision.. so do not hold some one else responsible for your mistakes’

Louis ‘you are getting serious Mark.. agreed we split 2 years back.. but it was because you were confused with life’

Mark ‘do you know the embarrassment of calling it quits in same college.. bunch of common group friends… ..  you just walked away because you felt I was seeing Julie.. the teacher who left college way back’

Louis ‘enough.. next session class begins.. am going to class

After Louis goes..

Mark murmurs ‘is there any solution for a person who has fragile mind ?’

Lord Buddha is smiling peacefully.. in one of beautiful frame..

Louis returns back from her session

Louis ‘let us both do meditation.. I guess that is the only solution’

Mark ‘you are mad.. hence I split from you’

Louis ‘you are weird.. hence I split from you’

Both are meditating awaiting some strength to their fragile mind.

 

Do you wish to be successful entrepreneur?

How many of us have been determined to be an entrepreneur?
How many of us decided to purchase a 100 buck product and tried to sell it at 150?
How many of us visit a technical book shop and show a natural inclination to read technology and draw a technology roadmap of products or project?
As a rest less soul, an entrepreneur needs to keep researching, using google, using every social media to identify competition around self.

Enterprise Solution
Imagine your product cost works out at 1 million
You wish to reach out to 50 potential customers..
The product pricing comes to 20000
and ensure you save on maintenance and travel costs through cloud solution etc

Aggregation Platforms
Imagine your product cost works out at 1 million
You have 10000 potential customers..in your universe
The product pricing comes to 10 only

You choose the currency of your country.

Can we really penetrate and get more clients?
Building a brand takes many years. Out of good will, out of marketing thrusts, out of strategy to reach out.  It happened for PASSION too..  1996, folks correlated PASSION with love and then.. slowly and surely PASSION got acknowledged in academic institutes and students as facilitator for live projects and then.. PASSION PRO came in.. Pune.. the vehicle brand and slowly and surely with even a news letter to push the brand, PASSION IT  got circulated and we found the business model working out and then the word PASSION kept growing.. it seeped into the entrepreneur eco system.
After the usual copyright and trademark in place.. and spending almost 30 to 50% of revenue earned in advertisement and marketing, decided to get lean.. leaner and more leaner.. and began using the social media power to reach out to people.

Is entrepreneurship tough?
Absolutely.. if you are not determined and are not passionate about your initiative and do not wish to make personal sacrifices, nothing can move ahead..
Many a time folks wish sleeping or dormant partners and it fails as only an entrepreneur needs to understand that overspending on media is meaningless and overspending on expansion too. As long as the first client sets do not accept you, nothing works out.
For free bee’s many come in.. charge money.. and all are gone.

Who can succeed in this journey?
The one who are courageous, become visible, push themselves and focus on quality product and services.

PASSION will reach millions and no doubts about that.. It is the strong zeal to achieve an object and seek security from that object. Whether it is wishing to have a baby, or wishing to learn or wishing to have a boy friend or girl friend or marriage or whatsoever.. finally security plays an important role in mind of entrepreneur..

Can an Entrepreneur really scale up with no money?
Many did that successfully through small funds..  As long as willingness to return back debts exist, as long as courage exists to work in team and without being greedy and understanding pain points of a domain and solving a solution.. things will just work out for you. No point of end less discussions, thinking and not working an idea and taking steps to make a product or service

Just ACT, SCOPE AND SET  your initiative through right probing and innovation.
Nurture and Own your venture

Solutioning

Rose is an ace technology architect and she specializes in middleware solutions..
One day Joseph her college mate meets her in conference. He is Mathematics professor in college..

Joseph ‘you look the same.. beautiful’
Rose ‘thanks.. how are you?’

Joseph ‘mathematics and calculus and integration and so on’

Rose ‘cool.. I am a solutions architect’

Joseph ‘wow..’

Rose ‘married?’

Joseph ‘single.. and happy.. what about you?’

Rose ‘my boy friend is in London.. so distance love’

Joseph ‘mathematics is all about binding elements and either filtering or aggregating the data’

Rose ‘means’

Joseph ‘it means that you decide in life whom you wish to be.. and choose friends, beloved by filtering and then you decide the professional contacts, friends and even casual friends and connect them in Linked In and Facebook.. Mathematics is most important aspect in providing solutions to problems’

Rose ‘not sure.. i was weak in maths.. you too know that’

Joseph ‘yes.. hence reminded you dear… and do you know what’

Rose ‘I know you used to flirt with me by sending me maths puzzles of relationship… like giving me 20 roses and asking me how many petals would you return back to me as love’

Joseph blushes

Rose ‘you never changed.. same type’

Joseph ‘how are you providing solutions without maths?’

Rose ‘these days we pick up components, integrate and important to choose components’

Joseph ‘what about latency, speed, communication?’

Rose ‘feature lists available dear in google’

Joseph ‘hence you chose that guy and ignored me.. may be I detail things out too much’

Rose ‘yes Joseph.. each topic of conversation would get converted to maths.. an equation’

Joseph ‘what equation you have with me?’

Rose ‘Joseph + Rose = Disaster’

Joseph ‘Incorrect’

Joseph ‘Joseph + Rose = Rose + Joseph’

Joseph ‘Relation equations are tough to understand. They keep dynamically changing.. hence the numerators and denominators play an important role..

Joseph ‘to strengthen relation.. an infinity is needed and to weaken a relation just a zero’

Rose is silent

Joseph ‘what is the use of distance relation if communication gaps exist, speed is unknown, consistency unknown, reliability unknown..’

Rose has drops of tears as she remembers her argument with her London boy friend

Joseph hugs Rose

Joseph ‘Solution Providers need to understand details of architect.. the maths behind a solution.. everything will go well’

Rose ‘Joseph.. you were always brilliant.. but I never found you romantic’

Joseph ‘romance is all about positive vibes moving between two objects.. it leads to factorial increase in love’

Joseph ‘a big rose to you.. accept me now’

Rose ‘what else do you do?’

Joseph ‘I am initiating a data analytic startup too.. cheers’

Rose ‘Am sure you will do well’

Joseph ‘will you be with me ?’

Rose ‘let me think over it…’

Joseph ‘if any relation goes bad.. mend it or break it.. nothing between.. digital technology works only on 0 or 1’

Rose begins laughing ‘you are again back to maths’
