Monday Blues: Get moving

Did you realize which month this is? I was signing on some documents yesterday and realized that we are already in the tenth month! October is here already. With 75% of the year gone behind I was just thinking what did I achieve this year and how do I summarize what is my contribution to work, family and myself! How much more did I achieve to do and with little time left can I achieve it.

Have you been procrastinating about what you want to do and how you want to do it? Time to get up, stop thinking and start getting things done. For laziness is one allergy we all can do away with. At work I create, develop and execute strategies that help the brand move forward and ahead of its competition and if there is on down day, slack day or an off day, it can hurt the whole brand. I have to keep my radars up and going to ensure that each and every interaction is up to the mark and we deliver happiness. It is a war out there and you need to keep pushing and advancing to stay in the game.

Don't waste another day. We all have limited time on the earth and it is a count down clock which is not waiting on you. Let us make the best out of that. It is not too late yet. Get out there beat your blues and make a plan for the remaining 88 days and get things done! Go on. Have a plan. Get moving.

Have a great day!

Shine with Bosch

How many of you love your bike and car more than your girlfriend? How much time do you spend cleaning your car or bike every day? For many of us washing your car or bike is not just for cleaning it but a therapeutic. Some of us enjoy cleaning the bike everyday like a ritual. You might forget shaving but the bike cleaning and car washing doesn't stop at any cost. Even on a rainy day. Never mind the back ache after the procedure. If you are one of these cleanliness fanatics like me, this article is gold for you.

This Saturday something special happened in Bengaluru. Apart from the rain gods showing their fury on illogical expansion and a bandh for water, it was heaven for bikers and driving enthusiasts to take out their  machines for a ride. We all huddled on the drizzling yet warm morning at Royal Orchids to try out the new solution for car and bike washing from Bosch Power Tools India! Now I was in a surprise as we were greeted by a muddy, dirty SUV, hatchback and a bike that begged to be washed. 

Time to get these machines dirty. We got these professionals throw slushy mud around :)

While the controlled smiles of the Bosch team were intriguing enough we were invited to pour more dirt, mud and slush on the vehicles. You should have seen the enthusiasm with which some of us threw wet muddy slush around. Just to remind you they were already dirty and the mud had dried up and this was a fresh coat of mud we were giving them! After being merciless and making them muddy to an extent that would make the car servicing guys open their mouth wide open with greed and the owners cringe, the first Bosch machine was unveiled. 

Now this is a very light weight machinery, you could easily lift it up with your hand. This actually weight less than half a bucket of water! Once the taps were plugged in came out the water guns. I was skeptical as the machine was too small and looked like it would be just like another pump but I was in for a surprise. Once it was turned on the machine started spewing jets of water with such force that would hurt your hand of placed at the nozzle. But to my delightful surprise and a lot of relieved sighs from the crowd, the water was enough to wipe off the dirt including the dried up layer! 

There were an assortment of brushes and nozzles that would come with the pack and you can easily twist and attach them to the water gun and viola, it cleansed the car clean in no time. You could wash a hatch back from that kind of dirt to a new car in mint condition look in just few minutes. The best part is that it is easy to connect and not at all tiring to use the machines. The smaller size makes it very easy for you to keep them in a corner in your boot and connect wherever you want to! This works wonders especially because it can run from your car battery! Call it German engineering for the Indian conditions. There are many more models in the arsenal to suit your requirements from the number of vehicles you can wash to the pressure you need. All that and more with the assured quality high pressure washer brought to you by Bosch.

Another amazing thing about these Bosch wonders is that they come in handy when you got to clean your deck, flooring, water gardens, glass facades and many such spaces which need high pressure cleaning regularly. Guess what, the pricing is simple superb and would cost you about a dozen good car washes. Apart from making them pocket friendly, Bosch ensured that they are power saving, water saving and hassle free to use. The HPW AQT 35-12 and AQT 37-13 from Bosch Power Tools are engineered to remove stubborn dirt and can perform in the most rugged of environments. This makes it a tool useful for home and garden purposes.

When I tried my hand at washing the hatchback the usual pain areas were so simple to clean. Let me explain. I am talking about the wipers, grill and mag wheels which are the pain points as they end up gathering the maximum dust. By attaching the detergent pot or the 90 degree nozzle to the high pressure washer, I could easily reach these areas and it was kind of fun to get them clean. Why did anyone not think of this before? Bosch High Pressure Washer under the AQT series would be the best way to have fun without getting your hands dirty. Check out the product brochures or walk in to a store to try them out. I would love to have one for the drives in my boot all the time. It is your time to shine with Bosch.

Monday Blues: The Animal in you

Keep the animal in you alive. Never lest it slack and rest. Keep it sharp, alert, agile, active, aggressive and ready. Feed it the blues and make it beat everything and go on. Be on fire, be fast, over perform, over deliver.

Keep searching for the excellence and perfection. Because if you don't, it will be suicide.

Zip the excuse

Why do we tend to move closer to excuses and find them at every corner and nook? If you need to improve yourself, which all of us need to do, we need to stop finding excuses and do more. Act more, learn more. How can I you may ask. Where can I do? Well this article is about you. 

In the olden days, and in some cases almost a decade ago, education and training was limited to the select few who could afford classes, material and time to go through the process. It was very expensive, time consuming and stressful. Not anymore. Now you have an ocean of knowledge just available on your smart phone and you would be an idiot if you ignore the potential. Don't use your phone to just play games and read jokes on whatsapp. Read good books, search online and train yourself to be better at what you like and what you do. Don't give yourself the reason that you don't have time too. If you can spend 1 hour on facebook, whatsapp, you can definitely spend fifteen minutes a day to learn something new. Do that.

When knowledge is freely available, it is a great equalizer. You need to unleash that potential and use it to your advantage to surge ahead. If you have been given a full paid ticket to learn at Harvard or any other best university in the world, would you just sleep rather spend time reading jokes and unnecessary forwards? The technology has enabled us to do that. Let us push ourselves and learn something new every month. 

When the race needs you to move faster and upgrade, instead of stressing more upgrade your skills. This is a race of death and defeat. So either upgrade or get obsolete. You have no option.

Yearn for success

Want success like nothing else. Yearn for it and learn to earn it! The most important thing is wanting success is whether you want it for yourself or for others. If you want to win something for others you might lose interest in between but if you want to win for yourself then there is nothing that can stop you. 

The secret here is to keep yourself going regardless of what the situations are and what people around you tell you. There may be chances of failure but if you keep pushing yourself to do better. When naysayers and situations tell you to stop and be bogged down, tell them to stop irritating you and take a hike. Tell your excuses to take a hike. Tell your problems, issues, fears, distractions to take a hike. Then you take a hike and perform. Because if you don't yearn enough, you will never give enough.
