5 ways festive times can be used for networking

Born in family of  a farmer, I have seen many festival days over a year. To me festival means some elders will be invited over meal, may be one, ten or hundreds. My basic understanding about festival was when many grand parents from neighborhood will come to our home, priest will come to  offer prayers to God and then meal will be served. Kids will be asked to maintain silence or go in the open and play with aunts.
Ah, those were the good old days. Those days taught me a lot specially discipline and respect to elders. Do not raise fights with other kids was also a norm.
Very soon during my teens I realized we have many festival over the years. So for me best festive season were from Christmas to New Year; vacations, no homework, study what you want, when you want and enjoy crispy foods throughout the day. Crispy sweet delicacies were made specially during winters.
I started living alone during teens and became part of Metro cities. In all big cities I observed Diwali is celebrated in very high spirit. Many people call it a way of networking. My childhood festival time is arriving soon, In a span of Ten Days we are going to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Though there are no leaves from work like old days but I am pretty sure to enjoy my fair share again and here is the beginning.

5 ways festive times can be used for networking

1. Show your cooking skills. Personally I believe, if you are human and live in a civilize society you know to cook at least one recipe. Invite your friends and friends of friends; cook, serve and share on the tunes of your favorite song.

2. Send E-Greeting Cards to everyone. SAVE TREES. If you not a social media person then too you may have thousands of email addresses. Greet All. Extending a hearty wish is not a sin.

3. Teach Neighborhood Kids. Chose a holiday, go to the neighborhood and teach kids some good habits. It could be cleanliness or save environment or may be some algebra if the St. APJ Abdul Kalam is your forefather. 

4. Go for charity. If you are fortunate enough you may find some NGO near you. Talk to them and join the work. Also you can count of temples, mosques and churches or Gurudwara etc.

5. Organize or Take Part in Events. During festive times many events happen in and around us. Also you can organize your own. If you are organizing and even post event schedules in your local city directory, so many people can join you. 

KEEP YOUR BUSINESS CARD READY TO HANDOVER TO NEWLY MADE FRIENDS.

Wishing you all readers Merry Christmas and Very-Very Happy New Year

Learn to read

Do not read to learn. Kids go school for reading and comeback exhausted. In many higher education institutions Ph.D candidates read and compile thesis based on how much they have learnt based from reading over say 3 or 5 years or may be more sometime with grant or without grant. Often I have seen one trend the people who impress you own many books, think any name that come to your mind and check what the person read. You will find a coal business person may have books on literature. A mathematics professor may have books of archeology. Talk to them. Often you will find the person attached with a certain profession can only speak or debate around that area only. Or discuss something random and you will be taken that certain area of work or passion. Consider sports. Cricket. Jonty  Rhodes best fielder and enjoys water sports.  The successful people are open, they learn from everywhere and apply those ideas in personal development and profession. No matter how many money making classes yo

Why documentation is important for bloggers

More often I received requests to improve website SEO or build a new website or improve an existing one. One common problem with lot of those website owners and bloggers is they do not have any documents about their expectations. They say do it best, do it as you like, I mean business. Or maximum they present some similar site. Imagine a legal professional showing you a similar site and its about a hotel or resort. That is not the story of most novice only. Even people in IoT business since over a decade and software professionals act numb. This simply put off me. Whenever you start a blog or website, ask yourself Why I am creating this website? Who are my prospects? What I expect from this website? How this website well fulfill my expectation? How I want this site to look like? How I will promote this website? How often I will need upgrade? How much budget and time I can allocate for this? Write down answers to above questions and any additional one that you have? To help you design p
