Now, this has been a real nice article from Harvard Business Blog as how to use Serendipity for maximum utility. The four ways mentioned are as follows:

1. Make your passion your profession. Do you love what you do? In today’s economy just having a job is cause enough to be thankful. But the pace of change keeps none of us safe: a more uncertain world requires working harder to keep our professional skills competitive. Since most of us put intense effort only into those things that provide us meaning and emotional engagement, we must make our passions our professions or the world will pass us by.

Very true. We lose ourselves if we don’t. I have realized it from the bottom of my heart and i can tell you it pains and it pains in real form.

2. Expand — and engage — the edges of your social network. You’re probably on Facebook, LinkedIn, or some other social network by now. But how adventurous are you there? Serendipity works best when we extend the edges of our social networks. People on these edges represent “weak ties” connecting us to new insight, experiences, and capabilities that provoke us to improve our own game. Over time, these edge connections become part of our core network, transforming that core in deep yet unexpected ways.

I have been lucky to have made some real good genuine friends using the social networking. Some of them are Divya, Amitansu, Satyajeeta, Sid. I have never met them but I have chatted and talked to them for so long that I feel I know them for a long time.

3. Participate in spikes. As we begin to pursue our passions, something remarkable starts to happen. While a few of us will choose to remain in, or even migrate to, remote geographic areas because of our passion for certain physical locations, many more of us will be drawn to emerging spikes of complementary talent in densely settled geographic areas. Social networks in virtual space will amplify the forces of pull being generated in spikes as our passions motivate us to seek out people who can help us get better faster.

I have just one goal in life and I am not going to give up that in any form. No matter what I am going to keep on trying and I am sure I will get it, probably in next couple of years, it will be in my hand.

4. Maximize return on attention. Hearing these recommendations, some readers will ask how any of us will have enough time to expand our networks and explore talent spikes. Aren’t we time-constrained already? Yet by adopting new tools and services we can all improve our “return on attention” — the value we get in return for the time spent looking for what we want and need. Search tools help improve this value immensely. But serendipity tools may prove even more helpful as they connect us to people and resources we don’t yet know exist.

One never knowS. This is life and there is always some significant portion which we never anticipate and it happens.

In other words, I guess this is waht is real life and the true relation between DREAMS and LIFE.

Came across a very inspirational poem form a blog.

Posting it here:

Send someone to love me
I need to rest in arms
Keep me safe from harm
In pouring rain

Give me endless summer
Lord I fear the cold
Feel I’m getting old
Before my time

As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord I’m doing all I can
To be a better man

Go easy on my conscience
‘Cause it’s not my fault
I know I’ve been told
To take the blame

Rest assured my angels
Will catch my tears
Walk me out of here
I’m in pain

As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord I’m doing all I can
To be a better man

Once you’ve found that lover
You’re homeward bound
Love is all around
Love is all around

I know some have fallen
On stony ground
But Love is all around

Send someone to love me
I need to rest in arms
Keep me safe from harm
In pouring rain

Give me endless summer
Lord I fear the cold
Feel I’m getting old
Before my time

As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord I’m doin’ all I can
To be a better man

Today, New York Times came up with an amazing article describing the power of mothers behind some amazingly successful Indian personalities. This is the perfect example of our Indian culture and its effects. This also shows how we respect and love our mother beyond all limits.

Some of the statements that showcased in the article were:

1.  Oscar Winner, AR Rahman — “Mother’s here, her blessings are there with me,” Mr. Rahman, 43, told 36 million Oscar viewers. “I am grateful for her to have come all the way.”

2. Varun Gandhi — Despite a video that appeared to show Mr. Gandhi, 29, mocking Muslim names and calling for harsh punishment for Muslims who commit crimes, Maneka Gandhi insisted her son was innocent.“Varun has not spoken anything like that,” she said.

3. Ambani Brothers, Mukesh and Anil —When they took a squabble over natural gas rights to the Bombay High Court, Justice J. N. Patel suggested the middle-aged billionaires take it up with an even higher power.

“Why don’t you go back to your mother?” he said, apparently in earnest. “It’s a matter of national importance, and a resolution will be in the public interest since natural gas is a national asset,” the justice added.

Its really proud to see that we, Indians, value our mothers ore than anything that they still hold an immense value in ur lives.

This song by Jennifer Lopez has got an amazing lyrics. Enjoy it to understnad the deepest of its  meaning.

Chorus
Lets get loud, lets get loud
Turn the music up, lets do it
Come on, people
Lets get loud, lets get loud
Turn the music up to hear that sound
Lets get loud, lets get loud
Aint nobody got to tell you what you got to do

If you want to live your life
Live it all the way and dont you waste it
Every feeling, every beat can be so very sweet
You got to taste it, you got to do it
You got to do it your way
You got to prove it
You got to mean what you say
Lifes a party, make it hot
Dance dont ever stop, whatever rhythm
Every minute, every day
Take them all the way you got to live them

You got to do it, you got to do it your way
You got to prove it
You got to mean what you say
You got to do it, you got to do it your way
You got to prove it
You got to mean what you say

Life is meant to be big fun
Youre not hurting anyone, nobody loses
You got to do it, you got to do it your way
To got to prove it
You got to mean what you say
You got to do it, you got to do it your way
You got to prove it
You got to mean what you say
