When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.


Recently I organized guest lecture on “Industrial Design and Visual Perception” at my organization. Speaker talked about industrial design, his background in product design and the process of product design. Somewhere he used quote from Wayne Dyer

When you change the way look at things, the things you look at change. – Wayne Dyer

Of course it was followed by relevant example in product design space. However the quote made me think. It is not that I heard this quote for the first time but this is the first time, it made me think a lot and I started comparing it with life that we live. As I thought more about this quote, I realized it is true in each and everything that we do whether it be our daily job, love life, or even professional life. Earlier I had written about Relativity of life in terms of Success and Failure. But I think it applies to everything. For example, there are some things that we like but there will be people who will hate those things. There are multiple factors affecting that , their background, their upbringing and their core values. Recently I read somewhere that some famous scientist’s school headmaster wrote a note to his mother. His mother cried after reading the note from school headmaster. When kid asked mother about the letter, she said “You school headmaster said: ‘Your child are too smart. We don’t have enough good teachers to teach your child.Teach him at your home’ “. Later he became the very famous scientist. I am not sure about the scientist but I think it was Galileo. After his mother died, one day he came across this letter from school headmaster and as soon as he completed reading, he started sobbing. The letter read “You child is dumb. We can’t have him at our school. Teach him at your home.” Inspiring ! Isn’t it ?

There is lot I can write on this topic. “If we start looking at the things from different perspective, we will get amazing results in life.”

Never Quit

Posted on

It has been a while since I posted something new here. I have written couple of book reviews but that is not part of the blog post. I was busy writing technical book titled “Learning Raspberry Pi“. Somewhere I read these lines

“If you have insights, experience and expertise that would benefit others; it’s selfish to keep it to yourself.When you think about it that way; writing is a way of contributing your gift to the world.”

I have been sharing my knowledge with the people whom I know since long but I believe by doing that I reached only certain numbers/types of people. So I decided to write a book and fortunately I got great publisher “Packt“. I don’t know how challenging it was for you ( Those who have already written a book) but for me it was quite challenging maintaining the timelines of chapters and handling the pressure of my day job. The number of revisions that each chapter goes through drains your energy. There were couple of moments when the work load in my day job was too much and I was lacking motivation to write. I almost quite at those moments but I did not. Whenever I felt low while in the process of writing book , I read the experiences of people who are best-selling author. Some of the quotes that kept me going.

“If my doctor told me I had only 6 months to live, I’d type a little faster.” – Isaac Asimov

“I want to do something splendid…
Something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead…
I think I shall write books.”
Louisa May Alcott

Today , I feel proud of myself for not quitting. My book is available for pre-order now. As a human , we all struggle in achieving what we want and there are moments when we feel like quitting. For me it was writing book, For you , it could be starting a company , finishing college or finishing that long pending task. Whenever you feel like quitting , think about why you started. No matter what happens , never quit.

Things that child never tells to his/her parent

To,
My Lovely Parent

When a child born he does not know anything about the real world. It was his parents that make him aware of everything. And he better knows it. Till the age of 15-17 he is enjoying his childhood. He has no fear/worries/tension. His parents and friends are his
world. He just do what his parents wants im to do. He shares everything with his parents. He has a great inner feeling while reaching home every day. But after the age 17-18 , he realized what his parents are doing for him and how they are cutting  their requirement just for the betterment of their children. It is the life changing step for a child. Now he is no more a child. He is entering into adulthood. And after observing his parents daily life, he clearly understood the value of his parents. And the day he starts working for giving every happiness to his parents. And now he no more shares his defeat and disappointments. He will share only his achievement and success. He wants to see his parents happy. After completing his education he starts working on giving every happiness to his parents. But meanwhile during the course of his education he came across many difficult situations. But he never shares. And surprising he suppress his feeling (dream) under the wish of his parents saying “I have my whole life to accomplish my dreams. But my parents don’t.”

I agree there are children described “badly” in many articles but there are children exactly doing opposite to it as described in the article above. How one can forget the priceless moments shown below.

Whatever may be the condition, human emotions are not going to change. So I am becoming more modern or I must say “Adjusting with the current environment” but my feeling are not going to change. Love you parents.

From,

A 21st Century Child

Achievement and Success are not Same

Posted on

Most of the people in this world are using achievement and Success interchangeably. But it is not the case. There is a difference between Achievement and Success. There are people who have number of achievement but they could not succeed. The reason is they are more self   centered.Although everyone in today’s world are self centered only the “radius” that matters. People who got something in life by stealing others Idea are called achievers but they did not get success. There are people who don’t have any achievements but they get success because of their thought process. So according to me we all should keep one thing in mind “Treat others the way you want others to treat you.” If we keep it in our mind we surely get Success along with Achievements. And also you can enjoy your achievements.
