Life Lessons Learned so far


1. Be true to yourself and live an honest life. If you are true to yourself, you'll be able to make decisions based on your strengths and Weakness. Living an honest life creates fewer hassles and increases your focus.

2. Complaints, Gripes, Rants and Criticizing never helps. If there is a problem, look for solutions

3. Learn to say No - and this comes from an Indian -- who have terrible time saying NO. Saying NO is easy; my 3 year old daughter teaches me every day!

4. Don't ever stop dreaming or thinking Big. It makes a huge difference.

4. Staying Positive is easier than most people realize. The worst that can ever happen is you going back to basics or drawing board in Crisis!

5. Accept Change as Change = Constant. 

6. It's OK to make mistakes. You learn a lot from your mistakes then you would ever learn from your success.

7. Get out of your comfort zone every now and then and challenge yourself. There is no better learning curve when you trade the waters of uncertainties.

8. be passionate about what you do -- Don't think off success rather focus on excellence.

9. Money is renewable source of energy if you keep your health intact. (This is from someone who is bad in following this lesson)

10. Time is everything. Time is the only non-renewable source of energy. Utilize it to your maximum.

11. Fear Not. Fear is something that you have to embrace it without resisting it or fighting it. Fear definitely subsides once you have faced it.

12. Spent time with the people that matters to you in life. Connect with People who share the same vision and goals in life.

13. A look at a documentary on PBS on India, China or 80% of the world population would tell you that one doesn't need a whole lot to be happier!

14. Speak the truth and nothing else. 

15. Never under-estimate the power of your will. You are mentally stronger that you think you are.

16. Always try to be a leader. It is easier to criticize the leader than to be one...Try to be one!

17. Think. Gather a moment. Reflect. Pray for 5 minutes a day. It would make life simpler to decipher.

18. Play outside. Run outside. Walk outside. Do things outside to clear your thoughts and more importantly to see the beautiful painting that has been created for us. 

19. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

20. Help people around you. 

I am 34 -- yet, I have learned only 20 lessons in life so far -- 14 less lessons -- I give it to my late maturity :-)

1. Codeine and Kids - What can go wrong?

Deep down we all knew the side effects of the painkillers and cough syrup, now the FDA has come out slinging against Codeine and Tramadol. On one hand FDA has decided to come against the painkillers, but on the other hand, it did nothing to stop pharmaceuticals to sell OTC cough syrups and drugs that do contain those chemical elements.

2. Emirates - The problem begins

This was my fear when the current administration signed the executive order to ban tablets and laptops for three middle eastern airlines. How long before the other two airlines cut down the stops in US and concentrate more in Europe and the rest of the world? What it means for passengers? More expensive flights for world travelers. The tourism industry is already hit with anxiety and a lot of travelers are definitely avoiding the hassle to come to thi…

Email is the new Fax

Do you see this picture when you sign-in to your Gmail account? 



I see it every single time I sign-in to Gmail, no matter the speed of connection. At some point this started happening to my Gmail account a year or so back and every time I log-in, it gets bad. Gmail is my preferred account and I have around 10000 emails in my inbox, which is not a whole lot. I love to clean my inbox and organize it as much as possible. All the marketing, forums, registered mails are deleted rather than just sitting there. I had plenty of filters before, but when google introduced 6 tabs, I decided to go simpler and just use the default tabs. It is working well so far, but the lag and that picture still appears every single time.
But this post if not about Gmail or how slow it has become. It's about email and I can positively say that Gmail/email has become less important in my personal life. Last year Google introduced a nice little dashboard service to let you know your email activity for the week/m…

Apple and Google - Tale of 2 photos from Tim Cook

I was watching the Apple event from this morning. It was nicely done by Tim Cook. He definitely has it's own personality for sure.

There is a section in the video when Tim starts talking about iPad. There were two striking pictures that he presented to the whole world. I won't consider it a low blow, but it definitely showcased the real problem with Android tablets. 
1. Twitter app on Samsung +Android tablet and how the Twitter app looks on iPad 
2. Yelp app - Compared on how they looked on Samsung tablet and on iPad




There was also another reason of selecting Samsung tablet -- just to tell the world how they two look alike!

But besides the point - Tim laid out the biggest problem for Android and why +Google is loosing on Tablets. It's the Apps +Google+Android+Andy Rubin !!!!!

Just look at the apps, compare them and see why Android tablets are not selling like hot cakes even when they are cheap and the OS is free. If +Andy Rubin is in denial about two sets of apps, one for smart …
