All they need is a weaver!

soldier poems by saurabh chawla


This is for the innocent ones
Living isolated in silence
So we can grow in abundance
On sacrifice of daughters and sons

Fighting for the unknown
Unable to find the reason
Scared of the treason
Waiting to be shown

Is it fair?
For the ones buried in sand
Or pyres are burnt on barren land
No, it's not rare!

There is no fun
In running here and there
The need is of prayer
To protect from sound of the gun
No pain, no affliction
Once they serve their role
Tired of waiting for their turn
Waiting for the Revelation

Bruised flesh and bones
In an act of war
Enough, doesn't need more
Let's stay in our safe zones

Neither a heathen, nor a believer
Taking slow steps to the graveyard
They walk silently broken, scarred
Not a cleaver, they need a weaver!

Ruling your time: Make sure it's not wasted!

Saurabh Chawla | | 1 Comments|
Researching various time utilizing approaches and experimenting with them on myself, I came across one technique which just blew up my mind. I thank the author for providing such insight into the 80/20 rule. The rule is simple enough to understand. Most of us use time in doing things which can be avoided completely. For example let us say that we waste a lot of time in doing things ourselves than investing the same time in doing useful work.
The rule simply adheres to an adage that 20 percent of customers are equal to 80 percent of the sales. Most of the business owners, especially entrepreneurs are addicted to only one formula i.e. to do all the things themselves. This leads them to wasting a lot of time in doing things in which they are less experienced. For example, we believe in doing  the laundry, the cooking and all these stuffs on our own. We can easily hire someone to take care of these petty issues. This way we can spend our energy in striking a million dollar deal with our potential client.
The  idea here is to keep the energy saved for useful and more revenue generating tasks than doing almost nothing at all. This will save a lot of time.
Below mentioned are some of the steps which you can start doing immediately for increased productivity:
1) Maids are helpful:
Hiring a maid sometimes can save you a lot of time while concentrating on your primary work. They can handle your laundry, cooking the meals, dusting etc. making it easy for you to work.
2) Get rid of all your petty tasks:
Getting rid of small things you do wastes your time a lot. Try keeping away from doing any such tasks which can be easily outsourced or are not generating any effective results.
3) Productivity time slot should be the prime focus:
In the morning time I am very best with ideas. I try to use that time in doing creative works, like writing. If I don't get time for writing, I jot down the ideas on piece of paper. This way the time is utilized and not wasted.

How to increase your productivity by decreasing interruptions

Saurabh Chawla | | 1 Comments|
For achieving your productivity goals, you have to follow certain principles so that you save your time and at the same time, be more efficient as well as productive in that pressure period. For you, time is money. In order to convert the stressful periods into money, you can follow the tips mentioned below to remove any interruptions and meet that productivity as desired.

personal growth

1) Be inaccessible
If you are an entrepreneur, you need to get lost many times. This helps in clearing the clutter around you. This clutter is hindrance to your growth. Also, it is a sheer waste of your time in which you will be more productive.
I remember a time when I used to cut off from my friends, family members for some time when I needed to workaround my writing tasks. I needed to complete them in tight deadlines. It taught me that sometimes getting lost can help you in being more productive.
Apply this tactic to increase your productivity. Here's an activity you can do. Give yourself a task and a tight deadline. Then try to cut off from all distractions like cell phones, television programs etc. Try to complete the task in the given time frame. You will yourself realize how your productivity improves.
2) Learn the other mediums of communication
Your customers, clients etc. can contact you anytime, every time. Try to limit your reach by delaying the responses to their e-mails, faxes, queries etc. But make sure that the time is not too long. You have to strategically manage your time to reply to these. This way your customers and clients will be happy with you and within that time, you will be more productive.
Next thing is that your customers will know the limit of contacting you through these mediums and will try not to bump your inbox with many e-mails.
3) Make use of deadlines
Managing your time is very much essential if you want more productivity. If you take up a task, make it time bound. It will create a sense of responsibility in your mind. You will automatically get engaged in that task by removing all the interruptions that might come into your way. This is the same activity I mentioned in the tactic 1 above.
4) Get busy
This is something obvious to increase your productivity. Getting busy in useful stuff is good. It serves to improve your productivity in the following way:
a) It teaches you time management skills.
b) Others will not interrupt you when they will find out that you are busy.
c) As the tasks will be completed in time, you will get a sound sleep in night as you will be relaxed. You will not be having any pending tasks for the next day.
It can work for you whether you are a sole entrepreneur or owner of a start up or a big company. It can help you to manage your time. It can also help you in managing your employees.
Apply these tactics and become a strong leader.
