My New Year Resolution - 2010

I feel this year (2009) has finished too fast…would like to take some time to reflect on what actually transpired throughout this year, in the beginnig and middle of the year had to face few rough patches on personal front, which made long lasting footprints in my life, those apart, made some significant improvements/changes and few success stories…. firstly stopped consuming Alcohol (6 months now…Wow! thing for sure, atleast for me), started reading Books! (lot of value add), started spending more Time with Family, started Blog (finally, long pending thing), reduced to emphasize My Point of View (interestingly it has proved good for me)…etc (trying to recollect more)

Success stories…first and foremost important, met my Elder Sister after 20 long years (we broke down deeply together, even now I have water in my eyes when I recollect that occasion), New House :-), got in contact with majority of my Schoolmates (thanks to social networking sites, actually now I feel I should have joined much earlier), accomplished 2009 resolution visiting Srisailam monthly once, associated back with my Childhood Friend (we were parted b'coz of some bad clouds, almost 5 years back), Support to Kurnool Flood victims with help of some close associates (we tried doing our best, but we felt it was still less whatever we have done), Losing Weight (yet to reduce more), LKP Team outing (my previous company, was really fun), Back Bone Award for FY10-H1 in MS….last but not least made 2 of my friends settled in Job and 1 in Business…etc…etc. (many etc’s is it?? hard to recollect all naa, wish I was encyclopedia)

What desired and could not be accomplished was, to bring back My Close Pal to Hyd (currently working in Pune from last 2.5 years, missing his presence here badly)……hmmmmmm and My Dream…“Entrepreneur” :-( .

Well having said that, I’ve set “My New Year Resolution - 2010” to accomplish the once which were carry forwarded, as priorityMy Close Pal to Hyd and am adamant to become Entrepreneur this year (let’s see what God will say/do)… I’ve narrowed downed some good projects, now all I need to do is to finalize the one which results in making me Good & Successful Entrepreneur and do not have COI with my current profile at MS, also it’s an implied assumption that I will continue learning/doing things from 2009 resolution… and I have set following for 2010:

• Achieve 2010 Resolution.
• Time Management
• Professional Certification – Procurement.
• To avoid dependency as much as possible, could be anything and from anyone.

Wishing You All, Happy & Prosperous 2010.

Entrepreneur (A Dream Which Is Yet to Come True)

Somehow I “love” this word “Entrepreneur”..... Everyone of us know an entrepreneur is a person who has possession of an enterprise, or venture, and assumes significant accountability for the inherent risks and the outcome। It is an ambitious leader who combines land, labor, and capital to often create and market new goods or services.

It is when I was in my early 20’s (though I don’t recollect the year exactly) I thought I should become a “Entrepreneur” heading/leading a firm in service industry and building relations (as I consider myself as good executor)… during the course of time the desire has become stronger and stronger and today it’s my vision which has grown up to “Group of Companies”. (though I don’t own a company as on 07th Nov 2009)

I feel what entrepreneurs makes so special is their ability to pursue a passion. Whether that passion revolves around a particular talent of their own or is directed toward improving the quality of life for others, it takes a tremendous amount of courage, confidence, and determination to follow a dream and turn it into a career.

One of the most fascinating entrepreneurial themes is none other than Leadership. Leadership alone can require a combination of all kinds of characteristics, traits, morality, skills and behavior. So what makes an exceptional leader? Is there a style of leadership particularly admire, or aspire too? What type of personality does a good leader require, and do you believe a leader can be taught or is it a natural? These questions keep ponder around…. While I know there is no sure short formula for success and I also consider what works for others may not work for “ME”…. But being flexible and accepting the changes that come along the way you will be showered with criticism, but you must learn to take them in your stride. (was that a gyan? :-), but trust me thinking in those lines make lot of difference for entrepreneurs)

When will I be a Entrepreneur? And in what is my interest area of?.. etc etc in my next blog… as I don’t know myself as on date.

It's ME!

It is tough to describe oneself in a few words... but here it goes... born and brought up in AP, Hyd…..I have a big interest in greenery, nature, travel, adventures and food... but then again who doesn’t, these are the finer things in life. My philosophy is you live only once so you should live life on “your terms” but at the same time consider others and their feelings... because if you hurt someone it will bite you back... a mix of an introvert and an extrovert, I do have my mood swings when I isolate myself to collect on my thoughts. I don’t have a lot of jokes in the bag but definitely like to look at the lighter side of things and crack a few funny lines.

I thought of starting a blog since long time…finally today (23 October 2009) I could make it with lot of effort (thinking not sure whether I would take it forward or not). I'm beginner at blogging because I'm still struggling with my sense of responsibility to demonstrate a willingness to enter into public discourse and my aversion to making my thoughts not only public, but also permanent….but I’m still worried about few who might care too much and give me grief over it…..I am such a “coward”. Then again, maybe I'm just cautious about spouting off opinions unless I have all the facts and the more I learn the more I realize just how difficult it is to come by facts that I can trust are true….
