No Looking Back

You keep a way to fall back and you will always try to fall back. When you keep no way to return back to the secured place you only remain with the option to fight the situation ahead or die.

This way lead to success in either options. If you remain no more it is better than living as a defeated warrior, and if you win you live a pridefull life.

Puppy feeling

I was about to leave for home when I saw a small puppy running towards me. Puppy was very lovely and looking vulnerable and lonely. I can very well read this from the innocent eyes.

Puppy was asking through meaningfull eyes to pick me and take me home. It was obvious that the winter was not good for that little one.

I still couldnt do much for the sweet little one. I felt very helpless and cruel to part with the puppy while moving away from the office premises. God bless you was the only emotion I had for that little being.

How to become interesting?

First Reaction
When you are delivering a workshop or lecture to students and they are not listening to you. I mean they are talking with each other slowly, some noises coming from middle and the end of the hall. The first reaction you have is anger. Next you can also feel pity thinking they are not worthy of what is being delivered.

Alternate Thinking
One second thought on this topic can be is my material really interesting and relevant to them? It might happen that they are in a different mindset and need to be neutralized first. Recently while conducting one lecture in a camp I found that the students are restless. Continuing the regular material has become useless. I took a different path. I asked them whether they are searching for something which has been lost amongst them. They replied NO. Then I inquired about the session, whether it was bore and uninteresting, and I received silence in answer. That was quite clear an answer. This was a signal for me to prepare more. Study more so I can make my lectures and workshops more interesting.

Conclusion and Lesson
I concluded at the end that my lecture was not effective. I need to make my lectures effective if I want to convey some message through the session. This way their time as well as my time is saved.
