10 Strategies for startup success


I ve stumbled across this video when I was searching for some good and inspiring videos on Entrepreneurship in youtube.

I did not like this video much, when I had first seen it. After couple of months, I have seen this video which runs over an hour, and was thoroughly impressed by Mr. Jason. He clearly points out the important things that every startup entrepreneur should follow.

An interesting video for all the aspiring Entrepreneurs and Startups. If you like this video and find the topic exciting, share your thoughts.

Thinking about future


When we stare at our future, what feelings does it generate in us ?

A feeling of hope, bright prospects, happyness around, a sense of being a big success in whatever we do, adrenalin rush to do good things quick and fast… or……A feeling of fear about what is going to happen to us, whether we shall be successfull or not ? what will we be doing ? How we will cope up ?

For both the situations, our mind generates supporting answers based on its current state.

If we feel that we are in charge and control of your future, we shall probably end up with the first set of feelings of hope, bright prospects etc. If we feel like we are not in control, then we are set to end up with the feelings of worry, a sense that we are going to loose in the future. I strongly believe that many of us are worried about our future in our thoughts by merely relying upon the permutations and combinations that our mind does based on the current information & mindset thereby generating some answers. Our thoughts and mind continue to be judgemental on our future and make us either feel happy about or get worried in the present.

Often when we travel to our future from the past, we end with surprises. Some times with pleasant ones which makes us happy and sometimes with the ones which make us feel negative. But we have only a very little control for both the outcomes which are primarily based on our actions and surrounding factors.

While the above logic appears commonsensical, and while the general advise shall be to not to worry about the future, most of the times, we end up suffering in the present worrying about our future.

Wish I have something like : SHIFT + DELETE


If any thing is bothering you and making you to be restless  and loose your cool?

Flush out the thoughts that are bothering you from your mind.

But how quickly can we do that ??

I wish this can be as easy as I have written these lines.

I know that it is very difficult in practice.

One can try to regroup their mind by doing some thing which they really enjoy or passionate about.

I am writing this post just to switch my  restless thoughts.

I see that its working.

What to do next ?

Goodnight everyone !!

Being Happy


 

Liked this pic a lot and I fully agree with this.

Effective @ Work


The ultimate satisfaction one can get at work is when they have a sense of belief that the work is done very effectively. For being effective at work, I believe the following are very essential :

Direction

The more definite and focused you are, the easier it is for you to make better decisions on your priorities and the use of your time. The more you spend on your most important work, the more you accomplish, and the better you get at accomplishing even more.

Responsibility

Take responsibility for your work, for every aspect of your job. The people who ride high in their field are the people who act as if they own the place. They see themselves as self employed. That is the reason they are always the most appreciated and respected people in the company.

Preparation

The mark of an effective person, or the real professional, in any field is that he takes far more time to prepare than the average. When you are preparing, get the facts not the obvious facts, the apparent facts, the assumed facts, or the logical facts. Facts don’t lie. Check and double check. In other words, it can be said that ‘Effective performance is preceded by painstaking preparation.’

Work on Priority

To achieve great results, you must always be concentrating on the small number of activities that contribute the greatest value in terms of work. Always decide what is the most valuable use of your time? And whatever it is, work on that. Your ability to discipline yourself to work on those few tasks can make the greatest difference between effective or ineffective team member at work.

Decisions

Every great leap forward in life is preceded by a clear decision and a commitment to action. The people who have achieved great feats are not necessarily those who make the right decisions, but they are those who make their decisions right. They accept feed back and self-correct. They are always decisive, always moving forward, never wishy-washy or vacillating in their attitudes.

Put your best efforts

Nothing will bring you to the attention of your superiors faster than your developing a reputation for being a hard worker. Your commitment to hard work creates a force field of positive energy around you that attracts positive people and greater opportunities into your life. You must be working on high value tasks and activities aimed toward the accomplishment of meaningful and important goals.

Efficiency

Always ask these questions to yourself. Why am I on the payroll? What specific, tangible, measurable results are expected of me? There will never be enough time to do everything that you have to do. Only by stretching yourself can you discover how much you are truly capable of. It is therefore the efficiency in which you complete the job that matters.

Have Persistence

Your ability to persist in the face of setbacks and disappointments is your measure of your belief in yourself and your ability to succeed in your  professional life. When you demonstrate to yourself and to the people around you that you have the quality of self-discipline and self-mastery you will become absolutely indispensable and your effectiveness in the organization shall sky rocket.

Superb Execution

Set standards of excellence for yourself and for everyone who report to you. You also need to be ruthless about weeding out incompetence and poor  performance. Identify your core competencies and continuously look for ways to upgrade them to see that you and your organization are the best in the business.

Relationships

People don’t buy products or services. They “buy” the people who are selling the products or services. First, you sell yourself as a likeable and creditable
person, and then you sell what you represent. Maintain and strengthen high quality relationships with internal customers (subordinates, colleagues, bosses, vendors) and external customers to see the company forging ahead.

Service

If you wish to increase the quantity of your rewards, you must first increase the quality and quantity of your service. Your rewards in life will be in  direct proportion to the value of your service to company.

The above are few of the important things which if kept in mind and being followed at work will yield great results and dividends.

Chase your dreams !


Do you Have a dream ?

If the answer to the above is YES, think of the following Questions :

Is your dream a visionary one ? Does your dream inspire to set your aims in the stars ? Does your dream motivate you to think the unthinkable ? Does your dream fills in you the confidence that you can  go ahead and achieve your dream ? Does your dream makes you positively excited about it ?

If you answer YES to some of the above or even one of the above, you are among the fortunate few who can make it big if the dreams are being pursued. As somebody very aptly put it : If the dreams are Chased !!

Every great thing ever existed on this earth has started with a dream. It has become a great thing because it was a visionary one. Something which others failed to see. The dream is followed with tough goals resulting in to tough plans to be executed. Execution of tough plans need great leaders and motivated resources to accomplish the goal in-spite of all the odds. The dream is being pursued very confidently with an attitude that, come what may, the dream will be achieved.

Chase your dreams, If you have One !! Write on a piece of paper and you may even share with your near and dear ones. Tell to your closed ones how do you plan to achieve it. A shared dream makes you to commit yourself to your dream and take you forward, closer to your dreams.

Have a dream and Write your own story.

If you don’t have any dream, Start dreaming now and have one for you. But for want of them, you will remain ordinary in your Life.

Visionary


A visionary sees light in the dark.
