What I learned today (14/04/2021) - What is Procrastination and How to deal with it?

Let it be career growth or personal growth, everyone thrives to be successful, but only few achieve it.  Do you know WHY?? There are so many factors in deciding success. Even-though some of the factors are unknown or visible only after the results, some known factors plays a major role in one's life ambitions. Few of them are Habits, Attitude and Skill-set. These visible factors can lead your life to upside or downside. Today I am going to share about one of the factor which will lead you to your downside if not corrected.  PROCRASTINATION!!! What is Procrastination? It simply means postponing the tasks. When we set targets, actionable tasks born. When we try to postpone the tasks, we lose our success rate.  What will happen when we procrastinate?  We have goals and, to achieve them, we set targets. When we set targets, we set daily/weekly/monthly/yearly tasks to achieve the target. We will be successful when we complete the tasks within the time limit.  When we procrastinate a tas

What I Learned today (07/04/21) - What are the stages in developing a skill?

Yesterday I learned about How and Where to start in Personal Development . As a continuation, today I learned the common 4 stages in developing our-self in any skill we need to improve. What are those common 4 Stages? These 4 stages are called "Four Stages of Competence" or "Conscious Competence learning model" . Lets see the four stages 1. First Stage - Unconscious Incompetence In this stage, we don't have an idea about the skill or we don't know where we stand. For example, If you want to learn and play football, at first you don't know your skill levels untill you try to play. This level is called Unconscious Incompetent.  The person who wants to develop a skill, unaware about their level or unconsciously incompetent in that skill. Most people, due to fear of failure , reside in this stage without trying. To break it, all we need to do is, "DO IT NOW" attitude. 2. Second Stage - Conscious Incompetence We have tried and we have some knowle

What I Learned today (06/04/21) - How and Where to start in Personal Development?

Most of us know, what is Personal Development and why personal development is important. But how to start and where to start? There are so many books and blogs on Personal Development.  I have started to read a few of them in the past week, and all of them tells us the same conclusion on where to start. Personal Development may be defined in my own term  'Improving our personal self in a way either it can be in skills or in wealth or in knowing and increasing the potential'. So basically it is a change, a change in behaviour, a change in habit or a change in lifestyle or a change we need to see in the world. Where all it needs to be started? Does it need a push from environment? Most of the times, the push from our environment change us.  But the best changes always happens from inside, same to the Personal Development. If it starts from within, it helps us to reach new heights. Let it be learning a new skill, or changing a habit, or gaining wealth, all needs to start with a p

What I Learned today (02/04/21) - Is it possible to get positivity from a boring environment?

Be Positive... Stay Positive... We have heard these words almost from every positivity blogs, videos and speeches.  And whenever we read, watch those articles, we have a gush feeling but when we turn to reality that feeling fade. While seeing a pile of papers at our desk or long meetings in our calendar or thinking about the repetitive work, we feel drained and wonder, how to be positive in a boring day life. But what if someone tells you that you can be actually be positive and also change that boring life into an enthusiastic one, do you believe? It is what I learned today. I have come across a tweet about getting a targeted amount of followers.  What is new in it? Won't everyone in social media is thriving for the same?  Everyone tries to become popular, but only few masters it. The tweet I have read is about how the person is planning to gain followers, an open strategy he tweeted.  If you are in social media and started with zero (if you are not a popular person), you know th

What Srini Learned today (01/04/21) - Is it possible to be rich and contented?

"Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links, that means, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click and purchase from the links."   There is a saying 'If you didn't learn anything new in a day, you have wasted the day' . So I am planning to learn something new everyday and share it with you all.  What I learned today? I started reading the book 'The Psychology of Money' (Affiliate link) by Morgan Housel. In the beginning of the book, there is a comparison between two men.  First one, 'Ronald Read' who was a Gas station attendant and Janitor for a long period of time but using tiny savings, made a fortune of $8 million . On the other hand, 'Richard Fuscone' - a Harvard MBA, Vice Chairman of a finance institute, went broke in his late years. I am always an avid reader of self development books. But this story changed something in my perception . I am  not gonna dive into who's policy is right a
