New Years New challenges New Beginning

Cityblog wishes its readers a very happy new year 2012. If 2011 was year of revolution this is year of election and we Punekars should exercise our ballots surely and wisely to overcome challenges faced by our great City. 
Cityblog promises to be part of betterment of Pune and its people. We will soon come out in renewed version meeting your expectations.

Lets start this year on positive note with a philospohical rejuvenation.

This is the time to change calendars, planners, diaries. This is the time to make resolutions and break it. This is the time to get into the most non-happening part of year from Jan-Apr till summer vacations for kids. For all those studying this is the exam time; a crunch time. Winter turns into spring and then into hot summer. Only festivity on horizon is Holi. All parties stacked up in last quarter of the year are over and back to work now.

This is the time one can make it count. Human mind has a great weakness to find excuses and get adapted to situation. I think that’s the main problem all us face. We are so comfortable in the day to day existence, routine, job that we lose focus on doing something new, solving problems that we really have to. Instead we focus upon day to day actions, fighting today’s fire and do that repeatedly. These mundane problems occupy 80% of our time. And we find excuses to do avoid doing something new. Lack of ability to take calculated risks and sheer laziness are two elephants in the room.

Here is an idea to approach this.

Please list out the things troubling you most. The things you consider as main problems hampering your happiness.

Find solutions to each of those

Try to spend 80% of your time on solving those.

That’s half way towards happiness is to solve all your worries, botheration, problems.

Work towards solving them diligently. Never lose focus as these are real problems. They may take great efforts, hrs, days to resolve but never say quit till that problem is eliminated from your list.

Make small plans, fine tune them, change plans if need be, you might feel that by doing this you have aggravated your problem, in that case reverse the plan. Dont feel sad about temporary setbacks. Be happy and focussed. One day this list will be erased.

Having solved your problems, now you need to unwind, remove your hackles. Try thinking now let’s make a wish list now that i have removed my problems. What i want to do with my life at this stage. List them. Plan as to how you will accomplish them. Don’t be averse to taking risk to achieve them as in worst situation it may not work out but you will be one step ahead in your quest now that you know one way not to do it.

Take review and change plans. Be creative and think various possibilities to achieve your goals. Never stop till you realize.

In both above actions, one thing is important that you have to put in hard work. Hard work never kills anybody. You have to be persistent and you have to believe in your selves. In both above plans one thing is very important to keep your near ones a part of process. They will value this.

Found this Bit heavy? Yes but time to be serious and rejuvenate your existence....

  1. Pride of People: Pune City. The city with peace and love. Once you live for a while in Pune, you would romance with the city. Beauty of nature, and oxford of India would leave you no space in your heart to leave this place. Followed by the excellent administration and progressive infrastructure.

    Sharing a wonderful experience of a beautifully busy morning, the nice treatment I got from Pune Traffic Cops:
