Ambition Quotes

“Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.”
― Salvador Dalí

Simple Life - Confucius

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”

Vince Lombardi Quotes

“The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.”
“People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.”
“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

Batman Quotes

One of my all time favorite movie is Batman (all 3 of them), and here is my ongoing collection of Batman quotes: 

The Dark Knight Rises 
"Oh, You think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING!" - Bane 

The Dark Knight 
I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Hmmm? You know... You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan." Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!  Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, a…

Inspiration finds its way

In midst of a crazy day and having a sickening gut feeling about something or feeling out of balance, some random inspiration came along:

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it - William Arthur Ward

Benjamin Franklin:
"Strangers are simply friends who haven't met"

"After each storm there is a promise of a rainbow"

"Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean"

"Obstacles are those things you see when you take your eyes of the goal"

Thank you, Murphy Printing for sending me direct mail brochure today that included the above wisdom.

8,789 Words of Wisdom

I have had this book "8,789 Words of Wisdom" that I randomly pick up and read. It's 618 pages of one liner quotes that are useful in day to day life. I have had this book for 5+ years now and I have not finished reading it.  It is a goal of mine to fully read this book, and to be live by the wisdom from the book.

To successfully achieve my goal within the next year, I am going to commit my self to write about the wisdom in my blog in a creative way.

I would like to thank Barbara Ann Kipfer to publishing this book and sharing the wisdom.

The Awakening by Sonny Carroll

A time comes in your life when you finally get it... When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere, the voice inside your head cries out - ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying, or struggling to hold on. And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle of wet lashes, you begin to look at the world through new eyes. 

This is your awakening... You realize that it's time to stop hoping and waiting for something to change, or for happiness, safety and security to come galloping over the next horizon. You come to terms with the fact that he is not Prince Charming and you are not Cinderella and that in the real world, there aren't always fairy tale endings (or beginnings for that matter) and that any guarantee of "happily ever after" must begin with you and in the process, a sense of serenity is born of acceptance. 

You awaken…

Marketing Candidate

I have been looking for Marketing Specialist / Associate Marketing Manager for my company (Evolve Discovery) and have not been able to find couple individuals for over 4-5 months.  It’s been so frustrating because my marketing department is suffering so much because of lack of dedicated and skilled talent towards marketing only.

We have had about 500+ candidates and interviewed at least 30+, yet I am unable to find someone. I believe the three biggest challenges in finding someone fit for the position has been: 
•Lack of education / experience 
•Lack of design / technical skills, specifically Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Dreamweaver 
•Cultural fit

We did send out couple offer letters, but both have declined, with one astonishing me beyond I can imagine. 
1)Ex-Google employee looking into going towards a smaller company: accepted a different position  
2)MBA Candidate who we were willing to sponsor Visa (Origin of India) for with a remarkably higher salary then qualification spe…
