Personal Branding

I want to separate out the word personal from branding. I think a personal brand is the moment when you start to lie. Focus first on the personal and you beat up all the competition instantly. Just being honest, being yourself, doing the work, applying the daily practice for just a few months, and your personal self will come to life more than it ever has before. You'll be honest with the people around you and that automatically beats all the competition because they’re too slick, too dishonest, too focused on their brands. You’re not focused on that anymore. When you come up with honest, sincere ideas for people, and you give rather than expecting to take, then you suddenly have separated yourself out from 99 percent of the competition. You win. And it’s that easy to do it.

Hallelujah!

Don’t leave it to others to take care of your image. If you are working..you should work on your image too.

 

Stakeholder Management is the  most important skill to survive in Corporates

 

Keep your channels live and active…don’t let your boss be your only window to the world

 

 

Few critical lessons learnt from my first job. Time to move on. Hallelujah.

My Lady!

I HAD to post this.


What’s with old school romanticism man?

 

“Those were the days…those were the women..those were the times…that was love…blah blah blah”.

 

If 50 yr olds are making that point, I get it. If a 30 yr old does it..he’s just trying to be popular with the old boys! C’mon…whatever this generation is…its because the one previous to it honed it that way…if you don’t like it..blame yourself!

 

“Ladies in those days had their own grace”. Yeh. Right. Let me try that grace when I’m pulling up the Sourcing manager.

 

“Ladies in those days had their own nakhras.” Yeh. Right. Will my boss be ok if I did those ‘nakhras’ in office…Ouch! :D

 

What they want to say is…ladies in those had nothing better to do than act to their whims & fancies…complain about the pickle taking longer than usual..smile when he looked at her ‘in that way’… I’m sure they did much beyond than twirling their dupattas arnd their thumb…but these ppl..these men…they want those dolls back coz they cant handle the brazen attitude of today’s women.

 

In your face, man.
