To do that ... I happen to write!

Changing business landscape

This has to be the quote of the decade:

Building a great business and operating it well no longer guarantees you'll be around in 100 years, or even 20. In 1958, the average length of time a company remained on the S&P 500 was 57 years; by 1983, it had dropped to 30 years; in 2008, it was just 18.

Convoluted Dreams - II

It was around 2:30 in the night. I was in deep sleep; when I could hear the phone ringing out. Suddenly my resting state of brain (sleep) was snapped and I woke up: within fraction of second I realized that I had mistakenly dialed some number in sleep and the ringing sound was coming from that. And I disconnected the phone.

Next morning I was wondering it's very interesting how the mind snaps into actions from the 'sleep' state by a trigger. It performed quite basic action: but it did it within fractions of seconds. This particular trait, I wonder, can be life saving in some situations.

Skip Shot

Yes, I haven't written for long, but for good an interview today prodded me to write.

I can't believe that I didn't remember clearly about skip shot in Water Polo. The interviewer asked me how would I throw skip shot, I was going in the right direction until I said that one should tilt their hand a little bit while throwing. Of course not, you throw a skip shot with full power and a straight hand. So that the ball hits the water and bounces in the face of the goalkeeper. Perhaps all this will make sense to someone who's played before! If you haven't, you should.

Of other interesting things, I realized that's it's important in the interviews to wrap it up by summarizing why I interviewed with them at the first place. #people-forget

Perhaps this is a re-start to my blog ...
