Learning to Manage
You think I have nothing to do…think again… I have the most precious commodity EVER to manage and that too in abundance. And I am proud to say that I am doing a great job of practicing the art of TIME [PASS] MANAGEMENT (popularly known as wellapanti or lukhagiri). Becoming better by the day.
Are you laughing??? Don’t... it’s not funny. It’s in fact one of the toughest task to accomplish before a person gives in to boredom and the feeling of utter uselessness. Did you know, it can wear you out more than an hour long workout at the gym...no? Well try it out. And in the meanwhile, here are some facts about my current favorite subject
The Challenge: Survival...every day of the week without falling asleep, wandering off the office premises or looking like you’ve just been hit by a truck but you forgot to notice
Resources available: A Laptop on which only Gmail works, a cell phone and the most important - a Coffee Machine (Time to show off – ahem ahem ahem - my office has a cafe coffee day machine so latte all the way all day, frothy n yummy - accompanied by a huge jar of cookies that’s always full to the brim, maybe cuz I don eat it!!! ;-p).
Constraints: no games, no data, no songs, no movie, no orkut, no facebook, no gtalk, no books (can carry yours but can’t read it in front of your boss can you?) and no one to talk to either L. You still think it’s easy??? Maybe you should consider the fact that the list above encompasses every single tool that an MBA in the making must perfect to be called a master in this subject. Imagine a camera man without his camera, a writer without his pen and a cook without a kitchen!!!
Saving Grace: BlogSpot is still available and so is power dressing.
AND yes I truly deserve it... after all, every single day I travel for 2 hours from home to office and another 2 hours back to home. Certainly NOT GOOD for any of my meticulously washed and flawlessly ironed clothes, which by the way I am very particular about and so it kills me everyday when I enter the office and look at my transformation - from no crease to crease only. By the time I reach, I feel like a drag n almost look like a drag, and there’s still no mercy...the bhoot of boredom haunts me all day.
And just after I had the longest week of my life...another one is standing on my door promising to be even longer. What do I have to say???
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......... [Like a friend of mine would say every time he has nothing to say]
