I have learned that......

I've learned

That you cannot make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back. 


I've learned


That it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it. That it's not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts. 

I've learned 

That you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you better know something. That you shouldn't compare yourself to the best others can do. That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life. 

I've learned 

That it's taking me a long time to become the person that I want to be. That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them. 

I've learned 

That you can keep going long after you can't. That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel. 

I've learned 

That either you control your attitude or it controls you. That regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is a first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place. 

I've learned 

That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences. That money is a lousy way of keeping score. 

I've learned 

That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time. That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you are down will be the ones to help you get back up. 

I've learned 

That sometimes when I get angry I have the right to be angry, but it doesn't give me the right to be cruel. That true friendship continues to grow over the longest distance, and the same goes for true love. 

I've learned

That just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated. 

I've learned 

That you should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what tragedy it would be if they believed it. That no matter how good your friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while, and you must forgive them for that. 

I've learned 

That it isn't always good enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you must learn to forgive yourself. That no matter how bad a heart is broken; the world doesn't stop for your grief. 

I've learned 

That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for whom we become. That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean that they don't love each other, and just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do. 

I've learned 

That we don't have to change friends, if we understand that friends change. That two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different. 

I've learned 

That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you. That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help. 





I've learned 

That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
that the people you care about the most in life are taken from you too soon

I've learned

That it's hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice and not hurting someone's feelings or standing up for what you believe. That no matter what happens to me on earth or how much my faith falters, God's faith in me never dwindles or fails. 

I've learned

That life's lessons never end and wisdom can always be passed on.

An 18 carat solid gold phone has been featured by AE+Y with a keypad that is equally similar as the phone itself with advanced LED backlighting, as for what it doesn't feature, the AE+Y comes sans email, games, apps, built in camera or GPS navigation. It does come with speed dial, call forwarding and a calculator, though. 


The lack of features and absurd design are well by design. This isn't a phone for your normal use. Aesir designed it for the ultra wealthy, fashion forward elite of the world. It's both a fashion statement and proof, that you should be filthy rich.

Top 5 Laptops for Business People



Relegated a few years ago to primarily office use, the laptop now has a capacity for processing and storage that is close to the desktop, allowing it to easily provide cutting edge multimedia functions such as DVD, video games, 3D image processing, and many others. Although the price of a laptop remains higher than that of a desktop computer because of its mobility, its use is also more diverse as it can be taken almost anywhere. 


Here are the Top 5 laptops for the business professionals to work at ease:

Toshiba Tecra R850



Toshiba's Tecra R850 is one of the most stylish Sandy Bridge based business computers on the market. It's a 15.6 in model that's thin (around 26mm), very well built, and relatively light (2.49kg). With a full-sized keyboard and a dual-pointing device, it's also quite comfortable to use and it also comes with lots of pre-installed software that can get in the way.

It runs on a Second Generation Intel Core i5-2520 CPU, which has two cores, Hyper-Threading and a frequency of 2.5GHz. You also get 4GB of DDR3 SD RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6450 M graphics and a 7200rpm, 500GB hard drive.
The price of this laptop is $1,555- $2,239.

It has all the good features, the matte screen, the screen-mounted keyboard light, the dual pointing devices, the comfortable keyboard and the solid build quality. It's the type of laptop any business user, programmer or Web developer would love to own. 


It's one of the few laptops on the market to have a 14inch screen, which we think hits the sweet spot nicely between user comfort and portability. It's surrounded by 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM and a 320GB, 7200rpm hard drive. The ThinkPad T420 makes good use of the integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics in the CPU.

Game changers in world of Technology



The world has grown to a phase where technology is almost inseparable from human lives. There are many game changers in the field of technology whose innovative ideas and leadership skills have accelerated this growth. As the world embraces the emerging technologies, these great visionaries have a lot to impart to the new generation who would be the best beneficiaries of these technological advances. Learn the lessons from these technology stalwarts:

1.Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs, the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Apple defined a generation with his accomplishments and innovative ideas. He is a true visionary who restructured the world of computer hardware and software industry with his legendary products such as Macintosh computer, the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad. "Innovation has no limits," he asserts that the only limit is your imagination. He advises the youngsters to think out of the box by being the yardstick of quality. There is no shortcut to excellence and its only absolute commitment that can take you there. "Love what you do and if you haven't found it yet, keep looking, don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it," says the great leader.








2.Bill Gates
A true game changer in the field of technology, Bill Gates has always stood out in the crowd with his talent and great passion. He proved that formal education or a graduation is not the only way out and the man who is consistently ranked among the world's wealthiest people says that we need to heed the lessons of failure and it can teach you resiliency. He lectures on how the business should be run and what needs to be learned from customer feedbacks and states, "Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning." For him, leadership is not just about control, it's about trusting others. The unpredictable character of business might lead to a situation where you end up working for your secretary and Bill Gates puts it this way, "Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one."





3.Michaell Dell
He is the man who invested his earnings from part-time jobs in stocks when he was in his early teens and today, Michael Saul Dell is one of the richest people in the world. He found

Dell in 1984 with $1,000 and an idea to build relationships directly with computer buyers. For Michel Dell, 'failing' is the first rule to keep an edge and he says "When you get a business that changes very quickly, you get some of that naturally. If you want to stay successful, be willing to take risks and change."






4.Eric Schmidt
Eric Schmidt has been running the show at Google, the internet giant whose stock price has gone from $85 to $581 ever since it went public in 2004. He values the worth of innovative ideas and that is the most significant management lesson he preaches. Being the CEO of the world internet leader, Eric Schmidt was keen on providing adequate room for the Googlers to throw out their ideas and he says "One of our not-so-secret weapons is our ideas mailing list: a company wide suggestion box where people can post ideas ranging from parking procedures to the next killer app." He also says that the most important characteristic of an entrepreneur should be that "he is going to do it whether you give him permission or not."








5.Mark Zukerberg
World's youngest billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg redefined the concept of social networking with his highly innovative and revolutionary website Facebook. Zuckerberg has been named the Person of the Year in 2010 by the Times magazine. He could identify the area where he could make his innovation successful and it was the inherent human need for interaction that he targeted. He created a venue for them to come together and connect each other without spending any money. He advises the young minds to be open to changes without losing the focus from their goals. Flexibility and willingness are his strengths with which he has been able to change his products to cater the customer demands. He says, "Embrace the developing and emerging technologies and make the best use of them." Zuckerberg was quick to identify the new trends and he kept his business policy well-balanced to adapt to changes. Stick with what you know and do not push something you do not know - this is the best lesson that Zuckerberg's success story teaches us.



India's best students who became CEO's



NARAYAN MURTHY


As a boy, Nagavara Ramarao Narayana Murthy was someone who could easily go unnoticed in a crowd. He was short, but sharp. Often, his seniors in school came to him for solving Science problems.

Murthy came from a lower middle class, Brahmin family from Mysore. His father, a school teacher, was fond of English literature. And like all the boys of his class, he too had dreams of going to IIT. So he worked hard, studied in the shade of boulders close to Chamundi hills, and helped many in his class to prepare for the entrance exam.

Murthy wasn’t surprised when he got through. When he broke the news of his success to his father, it is said his words were: ‘Anna, I have passed the exam…I want to join IIT.” Proud he was of his son’s achievement but he couldn’t afford the fees and so Murthy had to relinquish his IIT dreams. Murthy stayed back in Mysore. When asked about his decision to stay back, he said to his friends, "It is not the institution but you alone who can change your life with hard work".

He lived up to his own words. Several years afterwards, Narayana Murthy revolutionised India’s software industry by founding Infosys. And this has made him the icon of middle class dreams. He redefined India in the eyes world. India was no longer a third world country, but a fast developing nation. In the process, he promoted thousands of young, creative Indian minds to the world and made Infosys and India a hub of talent.

It is known to the world that he founded Infosys along with six others with just a few thousand rupees which his wife, Sudha Murthy gave. It was an incredible risk to take, but Murthy knew it was going to work, just as he knew he would get through IIT. Which he did, eventually. After Murthy graduated from the National Institute of Engineering, Mysore, he joined IIT, Kanpur.

Thanks to IT and its development, the little known romance of Murthy and Sudha Kulkarni is talked about everywhere. It is hard to believe reading from Sudha’s account of an introvert, quiet Murthy, that he is the same person to have revolutionised the IT industry.

When Murthy was asked by Sudha’s father about his ambitions, he said he wanted to become a politician in the communist party and wanted to open an orphanage.

While he has opened several orphanages since, his dream of becoming a politician still remains unfulfilled. After retiring from Infosys, Murthy was hoping to become President of India after the term of Dr. Abdul Kalam. Even though he denied having political ambitions, his supporters would like to see him on the throne.

Our Mysore Murthy is, no doubt, a visionary who has ignited millions of young minds.

SABEER BHATIA


Pioneer of web-based e-mail

Sabeer Bhatia has done the unconventional ever since he decided to study abroad at the age of 19; two years into undergraduate education at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, he qualified for a transfer scholarship at Caltech, considered to be the world's most competitive scholarship. After graduating from Caltech in 1989, he pursued an MS in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University.

At the age of 27, Bhatia was no longer interested in working for others, and together with Smith, began chasing what many people in Silicon Valley deemed a “crazy idea” – a free e-mail service. They raised about $300,000 for their venture - Hotmail. Within a year, Hotmail had one million subscribers. So revolutionary was it that Microsoft bought it for $400 million after 18 months.

Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address


Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life's setbacks -- including death itself -- at the university's 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005.


To Son,..........................From, Father



A Father's Instructions for Life Condensed from 'Life's Little Instruction Book"


Years ago, I read that it was the responsibility of parents not to pave the road for their children, but to provide a road map. So, as my son, Adam, prepared to leave for college, I jotted down a few words of counsel and put them in a dime-store binder. After his mother and I had helped him move into his dorm, I presented him with the bound pages.
A few days later, Adam called me. "Dad," he said, the book is one of the best gifts I've ever received. I'm going to add to it and someday give it to my son." Every once in a while life hands you a moment so precious, so overwhelming, that you almost glow. I had just experienced one.
Here are the words I gave him.
  • Admit your mistakes.
  • Be bold and courageous.
  • Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be.No one can tell the difference.
  • Be willing to lose a battle in order to win the war.
  • Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.
  • Buy whatever kids are selling on card tables in their front yards.
  • Call your mother.
  • Choose a charity in your community and support it generously with your time and money.
  • Compliment three people each day.
  • Don't be afraid to say "I don't know."
  • Don't be afraid to say "I'm sorry."
  • Don't discuss business in elevators. You never know who may overhear you.
  • Don't expect life to be fair.
  • Don't gossip. Keep secrets.
  • Don't procrastinate. Do what needs doing when it needs to be done.
  • Don't spread yourself too thin. Learn to say no politely and quickly.
  • Forget committees. New, noble, world-changing ideas always come from one person working alone.
  • Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his deathbed, "Gee, if I'd only spent more time at the office."
  • Give yourself a year and read the Bible cover to cover.
  • Have good posture. Enter a room with purpose and confidence.
  • Instead of using the word problem, try substituting the word opportunity.
  • Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly.
  • Look people in the eye.
  • Make a list of 25 things you want to experience before you die. Carry it in your wallet and refer to it often.
  • Make new friends but cherish the old ones.
  • Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all he or she has.
  • Never pay for work before it's completed.
  • Never take action when you're angry.
  • Never underestimate the power of forgiveness.
  • Never walk out on a quarrel with your wife.
  • Over tip breakfast waitresses.
  • Pray not for things, but for wisdom and courage.
  • Regarding furniture and clothes: if you think you'll be using them five years or longer, buy the best you can afford.
  • Say "please" and "thank you" a lot.
  • Street musicians are a treasure. Stop for a moment and listen; then leave a small donation.
  • Treat everyone you meet as you want to be treated.
  • Use credit cards only for convenience, never for credit. Never cheat.
  • Watch a sunrise at least once a year:
  • When faced with a serious health problem, get at least three medical opinions.
