Starting over again

...............thinking blinking thinking...wondering over and over...thinking what to do..where to start with and how to move on...so many thoughts in mind but nothing in action yet....why....has the mind become lazy again.....yeah..sounds so...but want to become effective as well...

thanks to economictimes for posting a very nice article.....that helped me resume back...hope soon the lazy mind becomes effective again...the article goes like this........applies at anytime in your life...

Your once-thriving career has hit a roadblock. Well, you're not alone. But with the right moves, it can be overcome. Sreeradha D Basu suggests how.

1) Look Within: Any reinvention requires reflection. "The fact that your career is stagnant means you're not doing all that you can do or could have done," says Ronesh Puri, MD of Executive Access.

2) Create New Flows: It's important to create new inflows and outflows, says Milind Sarwate, group CFO & CHRO, Marico. Inflows are capabilities that could be leveraged by the organisation. Outflows are roles that should no longer be played.

3) Learn to Unlearn: "Many times, the changing environment makes our old strengths irrelevant. However, we keep playing to them. This drains energy, while not creating value for the individual or the organisation," says Sarwate.

4) Analyse Competition: It's important to know what others are doing right. And judge where you may be going wrong. "There was a time when my career was completely stagnant. I studied the performers, played to my strengths, did things differently. It took time but I was back in the game," says banking executive S Lahiri.

5) Get a Mentor: Identify someone experienced and reliable outside the organisation who you can trust. "It should be someone who can help you focus, discipline you and show you the way," says Puri of Executive Access.


In the news paper there was a very good example cited under the section of learn to unlearn....that caught this lazy mind's attention and that is...

"Learn to re-invent yourself". For instance in the entertainment sector, the actors are continuously reinventing themselves and their character...

I would say that's a beautiful example...it did inspire me and made me think a lot...true that we are fan of lot many celebrities in the entertainment sector, but rarely we thought about the efforts behind such fantastic performances...

Very true that they re-invent themselves everytime with new character..and there goes behind lot of time and energy to learn unlearn and re-invent....

therefore have patience, learn, unlearn and enjoy re-inventing various characters hidden within self....

keep rocking never get lazy and stay behind!!

Cheers,

Akshatha
