Happiness is not a option, it is the ONLY option we all have.

So many time in our daily live we touch upon so many incident which effects other but we forget to realize how these small interaction or event can be bring happiness to oneself as well as to others.
..and These small moment cannot be described in words so I have just found some of the photos from a Facebook community which describes my definition of happiness. The best way to describe is when you do not have to write or say even a  single word so without saying much these are the photos. :)


Happiness is not a option, it is the only option we have.


Self Criticism is Dangerous.


Are you qualified to criticise others
Self-criticism and pulling down others in order to feel good yourself is a sign of low swlf esteem.
To me,criticism is nothing but a cover-up for low self-esteem.We criticise people because we wish to lower them in the eyes of others,and maybe through the same action raise our own worth.And we are self-deprecating or self-critical when we do not value ourselves and seek to occupy a high ground by making a joke of our own shortcomings.A self-deprecating person is a weak personality,who believes that he or she is inferior to others.He is convinced that something is wrong with him and rather than wait for others to point this out,jumps in with self-criticism.So he will typically say,You would know better,I dont have half the brains you do, or This is India,what do you expect Have you ever heard a confident,successful man make such a self-deprecating statement Either way,whether you criticise yourself or another,you are doing so out of a feeling of low self-esteem.
Social media and the various platforms it gives people,has made critics of all of us,and we freely voice our opinion on the many networks available.Who cares about a designated professional critic anymore,except as a reference point,whether for food,films,art or books Everyone has an opinion and that is fine but people get judgmental,and sometimes cruelly so.Some people are so critical all the time that it becomes difficult to discuss anything with them.Their first response is always negative,a sure way to discourage others from coming to you with ideas.Are you sure you are not one of them Because a recent study found that most such negative souls are unaware of this trait,and claim they criticise because they are honest and they care.
What they do not realise is that bringing down others becomes with some people an attempt at proving their own smartness.People criticise so as to draw attention to the weaknesses of others,thereby proving their own superiority.Everyone wants a success story.Some get theirs by working hard;some by pulling others down and so seeming taller.However,those who are truly superior do not need to prove anything by pulling down others.
We are of course not talking of constructive criticism here.To do so would be akin to throwing away the baby with the dirty water.Constructive criticism is important and helps us grow as a part of the learning curve.Criticism,in order to be effective,must serve a purpose and be delivered in as gentle a manner as possible.How do you differentiate between constructive and negative criticism Simple.Just ask yourself the purpose of your criticism.Is it because you are truly concerned about the one you are critical about and wish to help in the growth process Or is it because criticising another helps you feel better about yourself The first is absolutely justified;the latter is demeaning to you.
A senior,well-respected industrialist once shared with me his method of sifting the wheat from the chaff when employees come to him with complaints and criticism of others.Whenever someone criticises a colleague,I ask them to first list all the good qualities of the person they wish to talk about and then come down to the criticism.This ensures that there is no fear of being unfair and helps the other person see things in perspective as well.
Punjabis have an interesting saying,which translated,says,Before you criticise another,take a hard look at your own self. And also remember,every time you point a finger at another,three of your own fingers remain pointed back at yourself.

SAP ISU Payment Plan vs Payment Scheme


The major difference between payment plan and a payment scheme is that a payment plan is related to a finite number of open items to be payed on a e.g. monthly basis until the debt is payed finally. On the other hand, the validity period of a payment scheme is unrestricted.

Payment plan:
An agreement between the customer and the utility company, which determines the amount to be paid for each bill on agreed dates. The payment plan amount is not necessarily the bill amount. The difference amount between the bill amount and the payment plan amount is fixed and posted. The payment plan is not to be compared with the budget billing plan that is charged between two periodic bills.

Payment Scheme:
The payment scheme is a statistical budget billing procedure. Consumption billing amounts from previous and current billing periods are copied to the payment scheme and distributed evenly over the next billing period. The budget billing amount is determined partially from an extrapolation portion that reflects the expected consumption for the current billing period and partially from the copied consumption billings. It is not necessary to copy consumption billings to the payment scheme in order to use this procedure. If you do copy them, the bills are not paid directly by the customer but during the next billing period when the
payment scheme requests are paid. The payment scheme allows payments to be made in weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly cycles. The validity period of a payment scheme is unrestricted. This means that a payment scheme is not ended and another created when you create a periodic bill. Instead, the existing payment scheme is adjusted.

There is a cookbook payment scheme available in [http://service.sap.com/utilities] -> SAP for Utilities (product information) -> IS-U/CCS -> Billing&Invoicing -> Cookbooks&Guidelines.

Cubical Mania

This one of the articke i read in live mint whihc seems vert relevant to be shared

we know lots of people who thrive perfectly among embarrassing, dysfunctional, ugly messes for up to eight years at a time before elections.
What made it really hurt was my neighbour: a man who maintained the cleanest workstation I have seen in my life. Spotless. And also completely empty. Every evening he cleared his desk, wiped down his keyboard and monitor with a wet cloth, cleared away every single piece of paper, and then went home. His drawers were always half-empty. And yet he always conjured up pens, post-it notes and visiting cards from some deep, uncluttered recess of his chest of drawers.

How did he do this?

His solution was simple. First of all keep nothing in the office that doesn’t serve a function there. Nothing. At all. Anywhere. No knick-knacks, no mementoes, and definitely no sex symbol actresses from the 80s. Secondly, store nothing on the table top. It should be clean when you come into work. And clean when you go home. Nothing ever spends the night on the table top. Finally, and most importantly, tear things up. Every evening he spent 10 minutes tearing papers up and stuffing them into his wastepaper basket. How did he make up his mind what to keep? Zen Master Gopinath gave me a reckoner: if you wouldn’t store it at home, don’t store it at work. Finally he told me to take all personal documents—statements, bills, certificates—home. “At home you can dump things out of sight. No such option at work. Your dump is right in front of you.”
Since then I’ve tried to implement this process both at work and at my home office.
The hardest part is the tearing and throwing bit. So a few months ago I bought a portable A4-sized scanner that I always keep in a drawer. I scan everything and dispose of originals on a daily basis. And this recent house-moving adventure helped me jettison further bucket loads of accumulated garbage. My workplace gleams now.
Some months ago we talked about how an empty email inbox is so liberating. So is a clean, uncluttered office. It gives you the impression that your professional life is all sorted out. It makes you feel like a task-ninja.
Surely you have some workspace tips and tricks of your own? Send email so that I can take printout and keep.
