In the B-School classroom, though there is an effort to listen and understand, the mind wanders and I jot down thoughts. So here I present some chosen nuggets. Almost all which came to mind without any effort – some ideas might not mean much, some might be abstruse, but some might be fun !
*Never let a teacher interfere with your learning.
*Sometimes the only thing I learn from failures is that they happen.
*If people are places, language is the ticket.
*Sometimes I think God is a painter, sometimes I think He is a cartoonist.
*The problem with ageing is that you have to act like a grown up when you know you aren’t !
*If someone tells you the answers, it greatly reduces the chances of you really knowing.
*When we know we are actually inferior or superior, does it bother? Facts are ok, not accepting them may not be.
*Sometimes laughing can be tiring.
*The problem is that people don’t fall in love.
*It would be enough if people were prepared for the expected.
*One should know when to talk in other person’s language, and when to make the other talk in his.
*One must never say sorry except, of course, when one does not mean it.
*Be a person of content, presentation will follow.
*Since I am pursuing postgraduate degree in management, I subscribe to The Economic Times now. I read Dilbert.
*The problem is that people truth a lot.
*Toughest assignment – “Figure yourself out”.
*People are basically egoistic, so praise and criticism will always affect them.
*“If they are gone, they were never really yours” – my philosophy for hair loss.
*Success makes you sexy.
*Ambition, competition, can make you stupid.
*They say – “Guest talk is compulsory.” I hear – “It’s not worth listening to.”
*Never give simple advice.
*We compare when we don’t like something, we compare it with others to make us feel good.
*Important interview is not what you will give to McKinsey, but what you will give to yourself when you die.
*There is some part of us which is pure.
*Useless talk is a source of great happiness.
Hope you liked them. Do share your ideas 🙂
