What should I do after 10 + 2?

This question was way too easy back in 80s when our parents were talking about “Science, Commerce and Arts” only. If you have PCM then become an Engineer and if you have PCB then Doctor. Apart from that CA, Lawyer, Teacher and Business were the choices which we used to get. BTW, here business means if you don’t study well then either learn some technical work or open a shop.

Now a day in our country we have almost 850 courses available after 10+2 or 12th. Lots of opportunities in career and various streams availability, however still many students and parents are in 80s and think about two options, Engineer and Doctor. They don’t even know the difference of BE and BTech or full form of MBBS, all they know is Engineer or Doctor. They are ready to do anything to be a part of it. They can spend hefty amount in expensive coaching’s, get admission in high profile institutions etc.

At the end in both cases whether they get admission or not will blame the system and their luck. If all goes well then probably they will be a part of the corporate world and kill their own identity and unique personality.

In this presentation, we have tried to pull all of us back in 2019, so that we can think and plan properly. Leverage all the possible options and opportunities.

Cheers!

The Teacher

First of all, I am thankful to all the Great Teachers, who had enlightened our life with their knowledge. Who are building the world’s future. Who feel proud when their students are making great achievements.

No other profession is near to teaching profession, where the senior feels proud, when his/her junior touches the height of success.

No one can ever fill the place of a Great Teacher.

The world may run without a Doctor or an Engineer, but assuming a world without a teacher is next to impossible.

On the other hand, there are very high expectation from the teachers as well.

If I see today, then the “Work from Home” policy facilitates parents to spend more and more time with their children than ever before. At the same time the ugly truth is that the same parent doesn’t have time for their children.

Why?

Because these parents have to watch TV shows, movies, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, YouTube, twitter. Because these parent’s priorities are very simple;

  1. Earn lots of money
  2. If cannot pay from the earning, then take loan but don’t compromise
  3. Sleep the most
  4. Be social all the time
  5. Pay hefty fees to schools
  6. Give smart phones or devices to kids to make them smarter
  7. Force them to be mannered without forcing ourselves to be polite
  8. Give hand full of money to them
  9. Put them on the path of lavish life style

I can go on and on. Let me get back to the topic;

Thanks to our nuclear families’ fashion, which let our child out of their grandparent’s reach. By this we are saving them to become humanitarian and stealing their childhood.

Why?

Because probably we want a corporate kid in our house rather than a normal or an ordinary child.

Well in all these cases, all the responsibilities willingly or unwillingly comes over to our teacher’s shoulders.

These teachers are actually the real HEROs of the society now. They are the one who are building the nation, they are the one, who are trying to make us remain in human gene.   

We can’t thank enough to them for what they are doing for us.

Let Your Credentials Do the Talking

Does a kid know why is he/she forced to go to school? At least I wasn’t and I believe most of us doesn’t. I agree exceptions are there.

So after schooling many kids used to realize their interest and capabilities, they by this time know what they want and what / who they want to be. However as per the current trend anyone who needs to start his/her career has to have some credentials with them. These certifications and credentials are basically act as passport. Until and unless someone doesn’t have a passport how will he/she be able to travel to other countries? Then the second number is of visa. The more countries visa you have, the better on time opportunity you may grab.

Similarly, our credentials work for us. They tell about ourselves, our interest, our capabilities, our passion, our learning curve and the most important is our career path.

What else?

Well these credentials also tell about our seniority and sincerity because as we move along with our career, we keep on learning more and more along with that many of us dare to win the medal or earn the credentials.

Keep learning!!

Keep Adding!!

Career choice after 10+2 / 12th

There are almost 850 courses available in India after 10+2. Where as many of us think about only three options;

  1. Science
  2. Commerce
  3. Arts

If we closely look towards the situation, then we’ll realize that, these are not the options but the base to help us select right career path.

Lets understand a bit more about these options and see which stream is made for us.

Canada Express Entry Program

Get the Canada PR

For the past couple of years many youngsters are trying their luck for Canada PR. Few of them have got success, few didn’t and few are still confused about it.

If you search over Google or YouTube, you will find it flooded with lots of information and person’s personal experiences. Since everyone’s situation and circumstances are not same, so sometimes it is not essential that their way will 100% work for others as well. So the better idea will be to find the common among all and apply logics before taking first step. Now the question is what is common and who is right to follow. In such situation, the best option is to hear right from that horse’s mouth.

  • Visit Canadian Official site www.canada.ca, navigate it in detail. It has everything for one who want to apply
  • Without fail navigate the immigration section https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada.html
  • Get ready the pre-requisite, such as passport
  • Understand the total cost involved to get the PR, such as
    1. IELTS exam fee
    2. WES Basic Education Credential Assessment (ECA)
    3. Transcripts Print, attestation & shipping to World Education Services (WES) from your university
    4. Submitting your e-APR application post-ITA
  • Plan about the total duration involved in the whole procedure
  • Most important, understanding of the “Comprehensive Ranking System”, which will be the Go NO Go decision making system

Once you have all these information and doubts cleared, you may think of applying it.

Remember the IELTS or language test can be the game changer for you because this is the only test, which can help you either achieve more points or lose the game. Take it seriously.

Here are few links which may help you in detail.

Your information is confidential and strictly for our records only

Now a day it is getting common to share all our critical information, such as our ids, passport number, account details, phone numbers, mail id, address, blood group etc. to various purposes to various authorities. However, we are still in an illusion that our information is secure and with us.

Let’s assume that all this information we are providing for various reasons to others, those who are committing, “these data is secure with them”, how come after few weeks or months we start receiving calls from various call centers to sell their products to us? BTW, believe this is very basic level of data theft.

 

Try by your own, search on Google “get personal information” and you’ll see your contacts, if you are using the Google products (Gmail, Android etc.) followed by various methods to get someone’s personal information.

 

In case of trying Bing, “get personal information”, the results will show the methods of getting the personal information of anyone. All these are very open and available, despite various notes and instructions to secure our data.

 

The hacking and greed of money are getting common day by day. We used to listen about photo leak, data leak and data theft etc. and move on. I know, the cybercrime cell is there to deal with it but they are not getting instruction directly by angels about the theft, in real it has to be reported and the victim has to make him/herself ready for the endless fight against this. Mental trauma, unnecessary time waste, changes of planned activities etc.

 

At the end, if the culprit gets caught, so what, will it pay the tension and mental harassment the victim has gone through “NO”, so instead of taking easy step, we have to identify a solid solution to get rid of identity theft. Till then think before believing and sharing anything or everything.

You are IMPORTANT

Have we ever thought how important are we? May be while negotiating the salary we might have thought 10% about it or may be while spending money thinking a bit about it but as a whole do we really know our importance. I think 85% of us don’t. Let’s give it a thought.

 

Start with your morning, now a day many of use pick our phone and check the updates, messages, news etc. followed by our routine activities. Knowingly or unknowingly we are actually forced to do so, wondering how.

 

Let’s think again, whatever we are purchasing today, spending time over apps, TV / YouTube channels, travelling, eating, drinking are actually directly or indirectly forced over us to use. All these are happening via advertisements. Sometime our friend might be recommending something from his/her experience or sometime a model / actor recommending something to us. Sometime the product’s cost or service cost forces us to go with it whereas sometimes our comfort zone forces us to spend over it.

 

As per Forbes, females are shopping more than males do. I think that’s make more sense as they find themselves different than other. They find themselves unique. Being a male, I think male find themselves simple and like other. So sometimes they become an easy target of these influences.

 

Long story short, I strongly believe that everyone of us irrespective of gender are unique. If you still have doubt then check your retina, finger print and DNA, you’ll find yourself unique. And if we are unique then every individual are important and master of various skills.

 

Remember those who had discovered their importance are satisfied and successful. Now it’s time for us to recognize ourselves.

Don’t under estimate an idea

Every one of us might have heard about the innovative ideas and some of us may have lots of innovative ideas, however hesitant to share it with the world. Sometime while seeing something new, we used to say “this is exactly what I was thinking or planning to do”.

What I think, we should at least share our ideas without thinking that people may laugh on us or this might be obsolete idea, no one like it, will not get royalty, should patent it first then share etc. I think, all the ideas are equal while those are in the form of an idea. Once it starts taking it shape, then we may think about its weight.

Today whatever so called technology we have, is all about the ideas only. In today’s world business are coming up with new ideas only to sell their product to develop new things.

Let’s take Virgin as an example: It had started their flight service and stared serving ice cream in the plan. Well serving ice cream was just an idea and many was laughing over it, but it had great impact and was the key of Virgin flight’s success story. Later they came up with an idea of commercial space tour, which looks almost impossible, still many investors had invested in this idea. Though the space ride will be for just 4 minutes, still it was a great idea and Virgin team is working on to convert this idea into reality.

On the other hand people had purchased more than 300 million acers of land on the moon via Lunar Land Company.

All these were just an idea and we can see the impact of these ideas.

Start now and share your ideas, it may change the world the way it is crawling now.

Cheers!!

Empathy

 

During my tenure in public sector, I was trained over empathy. This is like sympathy but not exactly. Sympathy is a very common word and many time empathy as a synonyms is used instead of sympathy.

If we go by the definition, sympathy is feelings of pity and sorrow for someone else’s misfortune. Whereas empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another, which is in other words putting ourselves in their shoes.

 

So why in call centers they focusing a lot over empathy? They are always calm and trying to convince us.

 

I strongly believe that call centers are focusing so much of empathy to make their representative to understand what exactly the person on the call is feeling while s/he is calling for support or help / assistance. Until and unless the representative will not understand the importance of caller’s time and criticality of issues, they will not be able to provide proper support. This may affect the brand value of the company in the market.

 

We can take an example of multinational company Ford, which is continuously taking about its upgraded support services for their vehicles. Similarly the online shopping site Flipkart, which now a well-known brand.

 

I think empathy is the key to success along with proving the right support. Sometimes having right knowledge, best support team may led to failure due to lack of empathy.

Think about it.

 

Cheers!!

Nano-Management

Micro management is a bit common in today’s world. Most of the time, we don’t realize, when this micro-management turned into Nano-management. Let’s understand the Nano-management.


For me the Nano-management is, when the manager starts poking in our routine life such as what we eat, when to sleep, where to go, whom to sit, whom to follow, how every sentence of the presentation should look like, which movie to watch etc. too much of involvement in day to day life, be it on duty or off duty hours.
Sometimes it is good for the company, as the company will get the same trendy output what it was getting from the manager and now getting from us, however sometimes it is like killing someone’s personality and making him/her a toddler.

 

I don’t know what those managers have in their mind, while treating their subordinates like that, but I am sure, they want better output, quality results and on time delivery. They probably want zero tolerance in their project with superb quality of output.

 

On the other hand, what about those subordinates, who are working under the Nano-management web. I think if the duration is long, then they must be losing all their innovative capabilities and become more dependent over their managers along with hiding themselves in comfort zone, whereas if the duration is less, then these members will become a gem if they take this Nano-management properly and positively.

 

This Nano-management may help a team member to learn more from their manager’s experience along with grooming himself. This can become a booster for him / her for the new opportunity.

Now it’s up to us, how we release which type of management is with us and how we can leverage the benefits from it to groom our future.

Best of Luck!!
