“It doesn’t matter how fast or high you climb on the ladder if its leaning against the wrong wall.” ~ Steven R Covey
Essence of Pa-varga the fifth set of letters in the Sanskrit / Devnagri alphabet.
Hindi is not just a language like others in the world. It has deeper connotations and one can gain knowledge of these only by gaining knowledge from our vedic scriptures.
Letters Pa, Pha, Ba, Bha and Ma are the fifth set of letters in Devnagari alphabets. Look how deeper connotations they have.
Pa stands for ‘Parishrama’ = hard work. Every little entity in this world is struggling very hard for its maintenance and survival.
Pha stands for ‘phena’ = foam. When a horse works very hard, foam comes out of its mouth. Similarly when we are tired from working hard, our tongue may become dry and some foam forms in our mouth.
Ba represents ‘bandhan’ = bondage. In spite of all our efforts, we remain bound up by the ropes of this material world.
Bha stands for ‘bhaya’ = fear. In material world one is always holding some fear because of the uncertainties of what the future holds.
Ma represents ‘mrytu’ = death. All our Hope’s and plans for happiness and security in this world are ended by death.
Krishna consciousness nullifies this pavarga process. Pavarga symptomizes this material world but as you add a prefix ‘a’ to pavarga it turns to ‘apvarga’ where there is no hard struggle for existence and no material bondage, fear or death. Krishna consciousness is a path of pavarga.
This is the magic of hindi and sanskrit where each word is framed with some higher level of understanding, and intellect. Its based on real science.
Do you know any such scientific reasons behind Hindi to make every Indian proud? Drop your thoughts in the comments.
Pomodoro Technique: One at a time, using Pomodoro Technique in order to get things done.
Pomodoro in Italian means ‘Tomato’. The technique was developed by Francesco Cirillo in 1980s. A ‘tomato’ shaped kitchen timer is used to break the task in 25 minutes interval to stay indistractable. Short break of 3 minutes is prescribed on completion of one Pomodoro to stay directed and achieve focus.
Even if you haven’t completed your task on hand, break it down to 25 minutes Pomodoro. Breaking down and taking breaks after 25 minutes is to praise you for accomplishing, not the other way round that you didn’t completed. Have few Pomorados a day and you will be more focused with high achievability. Its the art of getting things done.
One at a time the most priority one gives you accomplishment instead of having many and doing nothing.
Getting competing thoughts out of your head is mandatory if you want to be able to stay focused. Keep it aside by writing it in your urgent but not so important quadrant as said by Steven R. Covey in his best selling book the ‘7 habits of highly effective people’.
The fight between ‘have to’ and ‘want to’ is known as the ‘Terrible two’. When people push work on you, it’s unlikely you’ll enjoy doing it.
In the Pomodoro technique, you select the number of activities in the morning that you believe you can complete during the day.
By actively pulling the activities into your To Do List instead of getting them pushed on you,you increase your personal commitment.
Perfectionism prevents action and pushes one towards procrastination.
Using Pomodoro technique, winding up the clock and putting in 25 minutes of efforts will reward you with being able to do an ‘X’ and then take a break. After the break you can decide to perfect or complete ‘X’ or move on to ‘Y’.
The prospects of getting into the flow are much better when you’re rested, seated and focused, than when you are just hanging around and waiting for inspiration.
Virtual vacation to boost your productivity.
One of the great ways for you to overcome procrastination is by working as though you had only one day to get all your most important jobs done before you left for a month or went on a vacation.
By putting the pressure on yourself, you accomplish more and better tasks, faster than ever before.
You became a high performance, high achieving personality. You feel terrific about yourself, and bit by bit, you build up the habit of rapid task completion that then goes on to serve you on all the days of your life. So when are you going on a virtual vacation?
Why personal branding is important?
You cannot NOT Communicate. Your appearance will communicate definitely something about you.
There is nothing as neutral clothing. Whether you choose to wear something or you choose not to wear something, it will communicate something about you. That’s why first impression are always important.
Your appearance creates your image. Your image is everything you do in this world. Another name for image is your Personal Brand.
Ideas are fruits of your thinking. But they’ve got to be harnessed and put to work to have value.
Two ways to get mental stimulation are, first join and meet regularly with atleast one professional group that provides stimulation in your own occupational area. Rub shoulders and minds with other success oriented people. Remember, a mind that feeds only on itself is soon undernourished, becoming weak and incapable of creative, progressive thought. Stimulation from others is excellent mind food.
Second join and participate in atleast one group outside your occupational interests. Associate with people who have different job interests broadens your thinking and helps you to see the big picture.
