मेरी कविता

about 8 years ago | Surbhi Bhati: Clean Desk, Jammed drawers

फूल बड़े नाज़ुक होते है,आते-जाते जब भी कभी पड़ती है नज़र,कहीं किसी फूल पे,तो बस खिल उठता है तन,उस भीनी महक से,और छा जाती है,अजब सी ताजगी,कितने रंग होते हैं ना फूलों के,ऐसा ही एक रंग देखा था कहीं,कुछ याद नही आ रहा ठीक-ठीक,हल्का गुलाबी सा,किसी चौराहे पे शायद,हाँ, वहीं तो देखा था,उन नन्हे से हाथों में,रूखे-बिखरे बालों के झुरमुट में छिपी,भोली सी आँखेंचमकती हुई,धीमी सी आवाज़ में,बड़े मनुहार से मुझसे पुछा था,दीदी, लो ना -- ले लो न दीदी,उन आँखों में झांकते हुए,ख़याल आया मुझे,काश मैं मांग सकती थोडी सी चमक इनकी,और थोडी सी बचपन की लापरवाही भी,थोड़े ही दिनों के लिए बस..उधार में,और बदले में भर सकती इनके जीवन को,इन्ही फूलों के रंग से,दे सकती आशाओं की खुशबू,और सींचती बगिया, इनके सुनहरे कल की,यह दिवा-स्वप्न सजा के मैंने बढाया ही था अपना हाथ,के अकस्मात् ही चल पड़ी मेरी गाड़ी आगे की ओर,और वो फूल पीछे ही छूट गए...

Do you have a personal vision statement?

about 8 years ago | Biju Bhaskar: Thoughts on enterprise application development and more...

Most successful organizations have a vision, similar to the vision we have for our App Dev organization - "Excellence in software development". Similarly, each of us should have one too. Fast forward three to five years and write down now.. what you want your career to look like in 2014 (even 10 to 15 years later) or what you want to be. This could be extended later to other domains of your life, i.e. your family, self (mind, body and spirit) or your community/society etc.This statement of your personal vision is intended to provide a focus for your long-term and short-term actions. It's expected that you will revise it over time as the environment changes and your priorities change just like any other organization. It will be of most use if your vision is a "compelling image of an achievable future, a story or picture that inspires" as my professor Stewart D. Friedman puts it.Before you write down your goals for the year, I would recommend creating your personal vision. Then only you would know the goals you are putting for yourself this year is aligned to your personal vision. Ask yourself, "Is this going to help me get to my vision?" If not, it is not probably worth trying to achieve those goals...Creating a personal vision has helped me a lot in deciding what my priorities should be at work. I have found it helpful to many of the folks I help with in their professional development as well.Do you have a personal vision? If yes, how is it helping you? or I encourage you to create one and see the difference it makes ...
