There Is No ‘I’ in a Team

There Is No ‘I’ in a Team We spend 90% of our lives at work. Specifically, people who work in the corporate sector, spend more time at their offices than at home. The success of a corporation is based on a very famous concept ‘there’s no ‘I’ in a team!” It is true, both literally and figuratively. The spelling of the word, ‘team’ does not accommodate the letter, ‘I’. Likewise, the values of a team promote that an individual should not put too much emphasis on themselves while they are working in a particular team especially at work. However, does this expression only apply to our work? Is this the extent of this beautiful saying? The answer is no! Let’s find out how through a real-life experience! Charles Plumb was a US fighter-jet pilot in Vietnam. Before he was shot down, he had participated in 75 combat missions. When he>>>

The Wolf & the Kid

The Wolf & the Kid There was once a young kid whose growing horns made him think he was big enough to look after himself. One evening, while he was lazily grazing in the pastures with his herd, his mother called him out to tell him that the flock was leaving since it was getting dark. In his arrogance, the young goat did not pay heed to his mother and continued to nibble on the tender grass. A little while later, he lifted his head up to see that the herd was gone. He was all alone in the pasture! The sky has grown dark and the chilly evening wind has started to blow. The kid shivered as he thought of all the stories his mother had told him about the deadly wolves that roamed these pastures at night! He started to run in the direction that his flock had>>>

Bitter Truth VS Sweet Lies

Bitter Truth VS Sweet Lies Once upon a time, there lived a man who loved his wife very much. He loved her so much that he could not ever imagine breaking her heart. One day, his wife came up to him and asked, “I need you to tell me honestly, do you think I am getting fat?” Sure, his beautiful wife has gained a few pounds but he knew she was not going to like it. So instead of telling her the truth, the man lied. “No darling, you have not gained a single ounce! You are as slim as ever. I am amazed you even asked such an irrational question!” Satisfied with his answer, the wife happily went away. A few days passed and his wife approached him again. “Tell me honestly. Do you think I am going bald? I have been losing so much hair lately!” Sure, the>>>

Curiosity Killed the Cat

Curiosity Killed the Cat Cats are curious little creatures! They love to explore things around them. If they find something strange, they won’t rest until they’ve completely discovered what it is. However, curiosity is not a trait that only cats follow. It is a quality that many of us have. In fact, it is one of those abilities that make us open to learning new things in life. Sometimes, this quality can also harm us, or our young ones! Let’s find out how! Once there were two siblings. Sam and Kelly were playing in their front yard. It was just after dusk. Although, it was getting dark soon, they did not feel like returning home yet. After all, what did they have to fear? They were right outside their own house. Nothing could hurt them here! They were just a little above 5 years old. Of course, their world began>>>

More Than One Truth

More Than One Truth An elderly man was sitting in his garden when his two grandsons came to sit with him. Their faces showed that they were both obviously angry about something. The old man could not help but ask, “What is the matter, children? Have you two been fighting over something?” His grandson explained, “Grandpa, we were playing outside on the street when I saw a large six that someone had drawn on the ground with chalk. I told my brother but he does not believe me! He keeps saying it’s a nine!” The other grandson cut his brother off and said, “Grandpa, my brother probably does not know how to count because it is CLEARLY a nine! He misread the number and then when I tried to correct him, he called me a liar! ” “YOU are the one who cannot read because it’s really a six!” cried>>>

Devotion and Productivity Go Hand-In-Hand

Devotion and Productivity Go Hand-In-Hand Once upon a time, an old man was walking down a beach when he noticed a little boy throwing something in the sea. He walked up to the boy and inquired, “My dear son, what are you doing here so early in the morning?” without stopping to look at the old man, the boy replied, “Hello sir, I am throwing these jellyfish back in the sea. A bunch of them washed up on the shore last night, they will surely die if the sun comes up and they are not in the water so, I am trying to put them all back in the sea.” The old man smiled at the folly of the little boy. He looked at the number of jellyfish and reasoned, “But this is absurd, there are hundreds of jellyfish here, you possibly cannot throw all of them in water before>>>

The Power of Positive Thinking

  The Power of Positive Thinking ‘’The mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.’’ ~ John Milton On 24th December 2007, St. John’s Memorial Hospital was buzzing with news of Ward No. 5’s recovery. Despite it being Christmas Eve, the nurses and doctors alike were seen running over to congratulate the doctor.  Everyone wished to witness this Christmas miracle before they headed home. What was this miracle you ask? Well, it all began on a fateful May morning… On the surface, it had been just another day for Margaret Marshall. She was running around the house searching for her bags and books. Her mother was calling her for breakfast and she could already see the school bus getting smaller from her window. ‘’Are you running late again, magpie?’’ asked her Mrs. Marshall, as she peeked out from her room. ‘’>>>

Life Is Not a Competition

Life Is Not a Competition Can you name the happiest man on earth? What do you think he owns? You probably think about the luxuries in life. He may be a billionaire with a huge mansion and a fleet of cars. Or you think about a celebrity who is almost as rich and oh-so-famous! Then as kids, we believed that we’d be happy when we came first in class or won a race or got praised in front of everyone. It was all about being the ‘best’ and owning the fanciest, flashiest ‘stuff’. It seems that we have been ingrained with a competitive mindset. Darwin speaks of the ‘survival of the fittest’, doesn’t he? It is our natural instinct to cutthroats and then move forward. This is probably why we have play life like a game. This was the scenario when I entered the halls of my alma mater. The>>>
