Note To Self #42: Why Work?

Don't work for name,
Don't work for fame, 
Work to touch another life,
It makes your soul smile, come alive.

Don't work for the money,
Or for the alluring honey, 
Work to accomplish an impossible feat,
It makes your heart skip a little beat.
 
Don't work for your boss,
Or for profit and loss,
Work where making a difference is the theme,
It makes your head dream a little dream.

Don't work out of boredom,
Or to build a kingdom,
Work to inspire many a generation,
And fulfil your existential motivation.

Work for the sake of work,
Not for the fruits thereof.

“I see your true colours and that’s why I love you” – Cindi Lauper

 

Hooray! Hooray! It’s a holi holi day
What a world of fun
For everyone
When you get a chance to show
Amidst bhang and glow
Your true colours, shining through
Your painted hue

Ode to my muse, my fuse, my Ps and Qs

You are my bane*, my excruciating pain,
My one deep love that keeps me sane.
You are my calm, my pungent powerful balm,
My smile that sees me through all harm.

You are my tears, my real and fictional fears,
My strength to carry on amidst the imaginary jeers.
You are my sorrow, my hope for a hallowed halo,
My reason to look forward to a futureless tomorrow.

You are my plight, my bright white light,
My zany Dog Star to guide me through the darkest night.
You are my yucky smelly potty, my sexy naughty hotty,
My one true mad lovely, the one I want to live with till a hundred and forty.

You are the one I don’t want to lose you see,
Even though you are not mine and may never be.

* Yes, I am Batman

Vanity: The Road to Insanity

Vanity: The road to insanity

Look closer, the mirror does lie



When will I realize that all I am made up of is dry dust
However pretty, in time it is bound to turn course, to rust
Of use it is nought to cling to my threateningly thinning tress
To despair and depress when her my skin-deep beauty fails to impress. 
Detach from this crude matter I so so long to. I so so must.

A New Year resolution is NOT the solution

A New Year resolution is NOT the solution #MondayMorningWakeUpCall

Calvin on resolutions

If Calvin the Wise says so, it surely must be right bro!

It’s quite early into 2016 and already many are barely holding on to their New Year resolutions with their little finger. Many many more have lost the battle before it began.

No wonder I’m not a fan of resolutions…made any time of the year. Felt like sharing why I think they are a curse, in the form of a verse.

Resolutions are not your solution,
They are more a source of frustration, 
And in many cases cause of depression,
When you are unable to reach your destination.

When you get attached to your goal, 
It puts a lot of stress on your soul,
It can create a deeply distressing black hole,
Especially if you strive to reach it at the cost of your inborn role.

A better way is to use it is as a guiding direction,
Without getting fixated to your unbending ambition.
By keeping an eye on the reasons of your agitation,
And being a witness to the causes of your consternation.

Slowly but surely, innately you will find the determination and motivation,
To create an internal revolution and fulfil your aspiration.

Clear. Crystal Clear.

Clarity of thought is the path to become a zot #MondayMorningWakeUpCall

Crystal clear

Clear. Crystal Clear

Clarity of thought,
A skill seldom taught
But an ability often sought
To transform from bot to zot*

Hint:

The problem you must simplify,
Till the root cause you can clarify,
By asking as many times ‘why o why’**
And ambiguity will dissipate, clarity will fructify.

*Zot in Albanian means ‘master’. Zot is also a cult teenage superhero from yester years created by American cartoonist, Scott McCloud (Both an inspiration for http://www.skillzot.com)

**The 5 Whys technique developed at Toyota to determine root cause.

Bonus Hint: Clear your mind and the answer you will find
