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.

People may Hurt you , Break you but it is How you Behave that Make you.

As a human we experience something new and better everyday. We met thousands of new people in our journey of Life.  And those people are of different kind. If you could not find anything good in them then read Good people are hard to find on earth…Really???.. . And among them you find many people who tries to hurt you , tries to break you. But you should not get demotivated by them. Please do keep in mind Life never turns the way we want, but.. . You can not blame whole human culture/life  just you had bad experience with few of them. Once again I want to quote Life is beautiful. Live it, Learn it , Love it . So ever since you come to such situation , just spend some time with yourself. Read some motivational stories/article for example this . It is your reaction to the situation(people) that makes you.

Respect and Enjoy every Moment


Life is B(irth) to D(eath). And C(hoice) comes in between. Many times you feel that “If I have done it before or I wish I have enjoyed that moment”. That happens with everyone but the main reason for a happy person ,he is enjoying “The Present”. Recently I read a book titled “The Present by Spencer Johnson”. One can see the “Thought Process” and  “Life Style” of today’s youth.  The quote that I liked the most  by old man is ‘Only you have the power to find The Present for yourself ‘ .
