Surround Yourself with People Who Lifts You Up

img_8364_edited-1

Life only comes around once, so do whatever makes you happy, surround yourself with people who motivates and lifts you up.

Always humbled to be standing beside one of my best bosses ever, my CEO, Mr. Rajeev Agarwal specially during some corporate responsibilities like this, which recognizes talents and dedication of people in our company.  Good man and great leader.

One of the many things that I have learned from him is not to wait for a life changing event to ignite my journey.  Be ready to jump and find my leverage and forward without fear.  Never cease finding  what I need to know in order to grow, what books, what skills, what mentors, and what circles I need to move with, and that learning is beautiful and endless.  My boss is such an inspiration!

Counting my blessings this Christmas, I hope you started counting yours.

 

 

This David Rubenstein Show Is Habit Forming

What makes a great leader? How can leadership be developed into a force for true achievement? The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations explores successful leadership through the personal and professional choices of the most influential people in business.

Renowned financier and philanthropist David Rubenstein travels the country talking to leaders to uncover their stories and their path to success. Each episode features an interview with one business leader.

From Bill Gates to Ken Chenault, from Indra Nooyi to Warren Buffett, from Eric Schmidt to Lloyd Blankfein, David goes in search of the fundamental insights that reveal what makes a truly great leader.


Mondays like this turns my brain juice into corporate thinker.  Like my brain literally turns!  The past weekend was a little friendly to me.  I spent some “ME TIME”.

  • Painted
  • Clicked photos of a black cat
  • Had bottles of beer
  • Abused Netflix (Watched The Crown – The story of Queen Elizabeth)
  • Lazied a lot (Just belly popped and slept a lot!)
  • Enjoyed the afternoon drizzle
  • Played with my dog (Bullet the pug)

So now…it’s Monday!  It’s a drill for me to read my Flipbaord and watch the news while I am having coffee in the morning before going to work.  You know, you wouldn’t want to be left out during morning corporate conversations with your peers, right?  Anyways, as I was playing with the TV Channels  earlier, hovering from CNN to ANC, I clicked the Bloomberg Channel and came across  David Rubenstein Show.  Indeed, very interesting!

And as a treat for you my dear followers, I am sharing with you the episode where he interviewed one of my favorite leaders, Warren Buffet.  Talking about inspirational people?  Count me in!  I guess David will always be a part of my morning drill!

Just a teaser, we both didn’t  want to go to college! 😀

Happy Monday morning everyone, or happy Sunday to whichever part of the earth you are right now!

Nothing beats breakfast in bed with the one I love beside me – my job (while watching Donald Trump running his last Presidential Campaign in Florida).  This guy cracks me up – seriously.😝

Bdw, not white bed sheets.  It’s not breakfast in bed.  It’s breakfast on couch while dreaming of my bed.  Good morning beautiful earthlings!

 

A Look Back

Rare chance indeed!

The day I met the CEO of now rated as world’s most powerful IT Services Brand, Mr. N Chandrasekaran. 🙂

A little pat on the back would not be so bad.  TGIF!

Diane Sawyer for Company

image (2)

I am literally stuck in C5 Road. 😦

Wednesday traffic jam calls for some Diane Sawyer for company.

There have been  many dumb celebrity interviews on “news” magazine programs; many that have nothing to do  with real news that no self-respecting journalist would ever do.

Disclaimer: I don’t hate Diane Sawyer 😛

But the”exclusive” interview that Diane Sawyer with Britney Spears for Primetime Thursday in 2013…- for me, anyway – was the day the music died.

I am currently reading 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America by Edward Goldberg.

Anyways, some people are still amused of how I can read in a moving car.  Is that an old person thing to say?
