..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.
Are you qualified to criticise others
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.
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.
