small words BIG thought!!! - Worth a Read!!!!
'A Leader Should Know How to Manage Failure'
(Former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam at Wharton India Economic forum , Philadelphia, March 22,2008)
Question: Could you give an example, from your own experience, of how leaders should manage failure?
Kalam: Let me tell you about my experience. In 1973 I became the project director of India's satellite launch vehicle program, commonly called the SLV-3. Our goal was to put India's "Rohini" satellite into orbit by 1980. I was given funds and human resources -- but was told clearly that by 1980 we had to launch the satellite into space. Thousands of people worked together in scientific and technical teams towards that goal.
By 1979 -- I think the month was August -- we thought we were ready. As the project director, I went to the control center for the launch. At four minutes before the satellite launch, the computer began to go through the checklist of items that needed to be checked. One minute later, the computer program put the launch on hold; the display showed that some control components were not in order. My experts -- I had four or five of them with me -- told me not to worry; they had done their calculations and there was enough reserve fuel. So I bypassed the computer, switched to manual mode, and launched the rocket. In the first stage, everything worked fine. In the second stage, a problem developed. Instead of the satellite going into orbit, the whole rocket system plunged into the Bay of Bengal. It was a big failure.
That day, the chairman of the Indian Space Research Organization, Prof. Satish Dhawan, had called a press conference. The launch was at 7:00 am, and the press conference -- where journalists from around the world were present -- was at 7:45 am at ISRO's satellite launch range in Sriharikota [in Andhra Pradesh in southern India]. Prof. Dhawan, the leader of the organization, conducted the press conference himself. He took responsibility for the failure -- he said that the team had worked very hard, but that it needed more technological support. He assured the media that in another year, the team would definitely succeed. Now, I was the project director, and it was my failure, but instead, he took responsibility for the failure as chairman of the organization.
The next year, in July 1980, we tried again to launch the satellite -- and this time we succeeded. The whole nation was jubilant. Again, there was a press conference. Prof. Dhawan called me aside and told me, "You conduct the press conference today." I learned a very important lesson that day. When failure occurred, the leader of the organization owned that failure. When success came, he gave it to his team. The best management lesson I have learned did not come to me from reading a book; it came from that experience.

Luv,
Viji.

Wonderful day!!!

Hi all,

Have a wonderful day ahead!!!


Life is LIKE that!!..

AUNT KAREN is the mother of two high-spirited young girls. When I called her one morning, our conversation was constantly interrupted by the din of kids screaming and chasing each other. "Could you hold on for a moment?" my aunt finally asked, putting down the phone. Within ten seconds all I could hear was absolute silence. Then, "Okay, I'm back." "But it's so quiet!" I exclaimed. "You must have complete control over those two." "Not really," my aunt confessed wearily. "I'm in the closet."

Something to TRY OUT!!!

Positive Attitude

More than 100 years ago, author Robert Louis Stevenson offered the following tips for maintaining a positive attitude. They still apply today.

1· Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things.

2· Make the best of your circumstances. Everyone has problems. The trick is to make laughter outweigh the tears.

3· Don't take yourself too seriously. Don't think that somehow you should be protected from misfortunes that be fall others.

4· You can't please everybody. Don't let criticism worry you.

5· Don't let your neighbour set your standards. Be yourself.

6· Do the things you enjoy doing, but stay out of debt.

7· Don't borrow trouble. Imaginary burdens are harder to bear than the actual ones.

8· Hate poisons the soul, so don't carry grudges. Avoid people who make you unhappy.

9· Have many interests. If you can't travel, read about new places.

10· Don't hold post-mortems. Don't spend your life brooding over sorrows and mistakes.

11· Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.

12· Keep busy at something. A busy person never has time to be unhappy.

Luv,
Viji.

Splendid day

Hi all,


Have a splendid day ahead!!!


Question Urself!!!

No matter what we've already achieved, there will be times when we come up against roadblocks to personal and professional progress. The question is not whether you're going to have problems, but how you're going to deal with them when they come up. Use this checklist to change your state and open yourself up to solutions.

THE PROBLEM SOLVING QUESTIONS

1) What is great about this problem?

2) What is not perfect yet?

3) What am I willing to do to make it the way I want it?

4) What am I willing to no longer do in order to make it the way I want it?

5) How can I enjoy the process while I do what is necessary to make it the way I want it?

Luv,
Viji.

MAKING CHOICES

Joseph Henry was an American scientist who served as the first Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. He used to tell a rather strange story about his childhood. His grandmother, who raised him, once paid a cobbler to make him a pair of shoes.

The man measured his feet and told Joseph that he could choose between two styles: a rounded toe or a square toe. Little Joseph couldn't decide. It seemed to be such a huge decision; after all, they would become his only pair of shoes for a long time.

The cobbler allowed him to take a couple of days to make up his mind. Day after day, Joseph went into the shop, sometimes three or four times a day! Each time he looked over the cobbler's shoes and tried to decide. The round-toed shoes were more practical, but the square toes looked more fashionable. He continued to procrastinate. He wanted to make up his mind, but he just couldn't decide!

Finally, one day he went into the shop and the cobbler handed him a parcel wrapped in brown paper. His new shoes! He raced home. He tore off the wrapping and found a beautiful pair of leather shoes - one with a rounded toe and the other with a square toe.

I can learn a lesson here...a lesson about decisions: if I don't make decisions myself, others will probably make them for me. Better that I make them myself.

And if I choose poorly from time to time, that's okay, too. At least I won't have to wear shoes that don't match. Besides, I'll probably do better the next time.
Luv,
Viji.

Fact to know!!!
The planet Venus spins opposite to the other planets in the solar system.

There's One In Every Solar System

In our system, Venus is the oddball. While Uranus and Pluto have a similar odd rotation, it is less obvious because of the angle of their axis. Venus stands out quite clearly, in its position as the second planet from the sun, and the only one that goes against the flow by rotating east to west.

This pattern of movement, known as retrograde rotation, means that the sun rises in the west, contrary to what would be seen on other planets if they could be inhabited. But how did it come about?.

The atmosphere on Venus is extremely thick, being primarily CO2, or carbon dioxide. This creates a greenhouse type of effect, which magnifies the heat of the sun and raises the surface temperature of the planet to around 930F. That, in combination with friction and tidal forces, is thought to have caused the planet to turn in the opposite direction to most planets in the solar system.

Tidal locking also causes another fluke in the relation of Venus to Earth. Similar in size and rotation, when their orbits align so that the two planets are at their closest, the exact same side of Venus shows every time. The phenomenon is a fine ballet that results from one body rotating on its own axis, at the exact same rate as it orbits the other body.

Something to follow!!!
He recently found $140,000 on the street.

He had just started a landscaping business.

He had credit card debt.

And he needed money for his upcoming wedding.

The money was in unmarked bills so he could easily use it without getting caught.

But in the end, he gave the money to the police because he knew it was the right thing to do.

The result?

Phone calls pouring in from people wanting to hire this honest landscaper after hearing about him on the news.

Honesty does pay in the end - in ways you can't see at first glance.

MY DIET CLUB
meets every Tuesday evening. I hate dieting, so I usually eat as I please all week long and then fast on Tuesday before the dreaded weigh-in.
With these eating habits, progress is slow. One day, frustrated by the numbers on my scale, I blurted, "I wish I could lose some of this weight."
"I know how you can do it," my ten-year-old daughter Marvella replied. "Just pretend that every day is Tuesday."

You Do Have A Choice
Very often we say we have no choice when what we really have is a very difficult choice.
You've no doubt heard yourself or someone else say things like "I have no choice but to work 70 hours a week" or "I have no choice but to go to this meeting."
In such situations, "I have no choice" really means "the choice is too difficult to make, so I'll pretend it doesn't exist."
Such thinking can be a trap. You can pile up one "no choice" on top of another until your life seems completely out of control.
But no matter where you are, you do have a choice about almost everything you do.
You have chosen the path to where you are right now, and you have complete control over where you are going from here.
Yes, the choices will indeed be difficult, but there's nothing to be gained by denying them.
The next time you catch yourself saying you have no choice, stop and ask yourself if that is really true.
The way to improve your life is to make the choices which will take you to where you desire to be.
Have the courage to look at those choices.
Carefully consider their implications.

Decide to take complete control and make the choices which will move your life forward.
Luv,
Viji.

CHOOSING CONFIDENCE

Carefully examining a display in the drugstore, a man asked the pharmacist, "Do you really guarantee this hair-restorer?"

The pharmacist responded, "Better than that, sir. We give a comb with every bottle." Wouldn't you love to have that kind of confidence?

One man quipped, "When it comes to believing in myself, I'm an agnostic." One of the greatest problems many people experience is lack of confidence. Some don't believe in their ability to speak in public, others are afraid to try something they've never done before, and still others do not have the confidence to overcome their shyness.

Do you know that you can become more confident? One effective technique is to learn to do what you're afraid to do.

I led a seminar a few years ago where I asked for three volunteers to speak to the group the next day. One young woman named Judy was the first to raise her hand. She explained to me later why she did so: "When you asked for three volunteers," Judy said, "I felt a knot of fear in my stomach. I've never done anything like this before and I've never really believed I could. But the fear was telling me something," she continued. "So...BECAUSE I felt so anxious, I decided that this was something I had to do. But I must to tell you, I'm terrified!"

She made up her mind to DO that which she was afraid to do. And the following day, Judy's five-minute talk was superb! She was honest and genuine, speaking right from her heart.

Gandhi's Life Mission
By Wayne Dyer
Gandhi was asked to describe in twenty-five words or less what his life mission was...
He said, "I could do it in three: Renounce and enjoy."
You renounce all worldly attachment to everything and enjoy what God gives you.
You give away what you have inside yourself, your love.
You're not concerned with whether it worked or didn't work, whether it was right or wrong, whether you won or lost.
You just constantly flow through your life without getting attached to the results.
The irony is that the less attached you are, the more you get.
The more you keep circulating, the more keeps coming back to you.
It's a flowing system.
Luv,
Viji.

Jus TRY out!!!

I made a ten-day commitment to adopt this stupid, silly word - "annoyed" - and to utilize it in any situation where I'd normally say that something made me "angry" or "mad". The results were astonishing. Simply by changing the word I had habitually used to describe my negative feelings, I immediately lowered their intensity. Saying, "This really annoys me", broke my pattern. Soon I adopted other words, such as "You're beginning to peeve me". Can you imaging trying to say this to someone you're upset with and keeping a straight face?

Select a word you habitually use to describe your negative feelings, and come up with an alternative word that will break your pattern or at least lower your intensity.

Luv,
Viji.
