I saw the movie “The Social Network“, the story of Facebook. As with all similar movies, they make it look so simple. Before you know it, the company is world famous. I like the way the movie is made with the focus not on the company itself, but on the drama behind its making.
Over the past few weeks, I got the opportunity to interact with a lot of people. Those interactions revealed to me some interesting facts.
Last day while returning home from Cochin, I met this guy, Shine. He is from my neighbourhood, I knew him for about 3 years. He was running his own PCB (Printed Circuit Board) manufacturing unit near my home.
He had about a dozen employees and was running it pretty well. However, when I tried contacting him for my college project last January, he was gone. I went to his factory, and it was closed down. I was told that he had to close down cuz of some sales tax issues.
When we are screwed up, we find explanations to console ourselves. At least I do.
The following are some of my favourite explanations which I use depending on the demand of the situation. I don’t care if they are right or wrong, I just feel better when I think this way.
I have been a YES Man for a long part of my life. I could never say No when anyone asks me anything, especially the ones who love me and the ones whom I love.
Give it a thought, if you just said YES to everything, you are not making choices. The choice is already made. That isn’t fair. I thought Life was about choices.
