Where is your “why”?

Purnima Varadrajan:

The “why” people and the “how” people. Of course both are interlinked but which comes first matters. Everybody knows “what” they do 100%. Some know how they do it. But very very few people or organizations know WHY they do it. (Why => How=> What =>The Golden Circle)

The ‘why’ people actually are the masters, they are the questioning intellectuals.  They question reality, the doubt routine, they go against normalcy…   The clan called entrepreneurs belong to this group of people.

It is time to quit…


Demanding Perfection
Waiting for inspiration
Wanting reassurance

Quit waiting

For someone to change
For more favorable situation
For absence of risk
For someone to discover you
For confidence
For pain to go

Just quit today quit now.

just aim and shoot…

Purnima Varadrajan:

Sad to see people just talking and not taking action :-(

If you want to shoot a target you need to get ready, aim and shoot.   Only then you may hit or miss the target. Hit or miss actually does not matter.

What matters is the stages ..getting ready..aiming and then shooting…

Why then most part of life is wasted getting ready, getting ready and in getting ready..just aim and shoot so that you know if it’s a hit or a miss..

If you shoot for the stars and hit the moon its ok.  but you have got to shoot for something.  A lot of people dont even shoot – Confucius

Though it is registered, I don’t know when, I have been called a no-nonsense person by many. But I think it is of late I have started taking note of it when people say it to me. To top it all I have started claiming I am a no-nonsense person. Yesterday it came up again.

Me and my friend were debating a topic yesterday and at the end of it he said ” this is the best part of you, the no-nonsense, YOU”. The result this post.

My friends used to call me Princess Leia (A character in Star Wars movies who was tough, no-nonsense yet delicate and romantic). I don’t know why, it just occurred that I should check if there is any negativity attached to this ‘no-nonsense’ word. Dictionary meanings say :no-nonsense person is one who : does not tolerate irrelevancies; is direct, is efficient and practical: also…
