Unwritten Ground Rules

Recently I watched documentary on unwritten ground rules(www.ugrs.net) and it was pretty impressive.

As an employee, we are bound for our duties and such duties have been pass it on without challenging it and it became an unwritten ground rule. It was until now at least for me.

Now, after watched that 2 minutes movie, I realized that the key reason was missing from it and that is,  what do I value most at my workplace, is it because ….

  1. Its commutable.
  2. Good wages.
  3. Great work culture.
  4. Potential for growth.
  5. Long history of success.
  6. Positive feedback.
  7. Friendly.
  8. Flexible

List goes on, but may be none of those implies that how can I make my company a better workplace?

However I always wondered, suppose if I have my own corporate company then how can I make that company an awesome place to work for and people absolutely adore it and value it, make it more successful and yet fun to work for?

I must admit here I need to define my own company’s purpose and core values first and then envision it. Every business is driven by 4Ps – People, Product, Places and Promotion.  

Purpose:

To give the best products with great promotion and value to the people at their own places.

What do I  value most?

  • Innovation
  • Integrity
  • Diversity
  • Openness
  • Teamwork

What is it that drives it?

I always see employees as an assets. They are intellectual assets who can nurture the culture. I should hire those who are passionate about their job, love what exactly they do. And have a same vision and values for the company.

I should always ask myself  – do my business (corporate) really care for them? As a company do I really able to accept those changes?

It is true that company can always hire anyone they want and fire them at the same time. But by doing that don’t you think it violates integrity. 

As an employee we must know about company’s core values and we must share it and respect it to live. Being passionate, enthusiastic about company and its products, take pride and be part of it. Absolutely vital that they took a proud for working.

Company shouldn’t choose them, they should choose the company and with a great reason.

Recognition and rewards always leads retention. Loyalty comes with a great trust and faith.

Success of the company lies where its employees welfare and continuous growth with a significant challenges.

I learn one thing from unwritten ground rules and I would like to share it.

If a corporate seeking a changes then employees must be treated as a loyal customers because they are the reason for the existence of corporate success.

It was my 38th Birthday Yesterday.

It was my 38th birthday yesterday and I have received lots of birthday wishes, which I am so thankful for that. In our lifespan we touch so many lives, and so many peoples touches our lives. It is meant for that. However I believe that I am bit reserved for expressing myself to them even saying big thank you is like need to give all them personally.

Overall I would like to share how did I spend my birthday. It was an ordinary day nothing special but in the morning I have received first wish from my lovely wife and later my 6 year old princess gave me kisses and sung a birthday song. Later it was plan for movie – We went to watch movie ‘Sultan’ – I must say it was not about the movie review but I like the fact the philosophical drama express with life events.

It was heart warming feeling when you are going through a tough time and you are looking for an answer for everything, motivation, inspiration and courage to embrace yourself, fight for life and with life.

After watching ‘Sultan’ I felt refresh and it was a message hidden for me, not to give up and stand up and fight again.

I would like to thank all of you who have send me birthday wishes, you don’t know how much it means to me and How badly I needed those. I am a human and I am surrounding with life’s challenges, I am not afraid of any of those. Because I have your blessing and well wishes, I have strength for  fighting. I am so grateful for everything in my life. And I am so much grateful for those who has send me birthday wishes and those who hasn’t. I hearty thankful to you all. Love you always.

‘I wish you all very happiness for life, may all my blessing granted you to fulfil your wishes’.

Peace.

5 Insights on Creativity from Osho

5 Insights on Creativity from Osho.

1. Ego is the enemy of creativity. You are at your creative best when you do things because you find joy in doing it, because it has an intrinsic value to you. When you do things with a purpose of gaining recognition (and hence satisfy your ego), creativity is limited. Our need for external validation for our work stops us from being receptive, open and curious.

2. Creativity is a paradox. The more you try to be creative, the less creative you will be. Conscious effort to be creative comes in your way to be creative – that is because creativity flows. I wrote earlier that constraints help us become creative – but being in a state flow, being with the work, being in the work is the key to be creative. The book says, “It is not a question of what you do, it is the question of how you do it. And ultimately it is a question of whether you do it or you allow it to happen.”

3. Creativity means letting go of past. Too much reliance on our past stops you from being creative. Creative person is the one who lives in the moment, understands the context and looks at possibilities. As Osho rightly says in the book, “To bring intelligence into activity, you don’t need more information, you need more meditation. You need to become less mind and more heart.”

4. Creativity is an inner game. It stems from your love for the subject. It stems from your passion to practice, courage to try and learn by doing. Osho says, “If your act is your love affair then it becomes creative. Creativity is the quality you bring to the activity you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach – how you look at things. Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, then it is creative”

5. Creativity demands a lot of courage. Because doing something unconventionally requires you take risks, be prepared for failure, and learn from it. Osho observes that once you recognition and respect (external validation) keeps us from experimenting, because we are too afraid to fail.

Bottom line:

Creativity isn’t always about doing something that no one has done before – but in my view, it is always about executing your ideas with great love, great joy and a deep interest. If world recognizes it, you will be grateful. If not, you will still find intrinsic joy and happiness. Being creative is a selfish act!

Above paragraphs are taken from one of my favourite mentor tanmay vora’s blog  www.qaspire.com. It seems to me that I am start taking interest in OSHO. I will read something that make me more sense and fulfil my desire and lust about life (curiosity, passion, affection, love ). It is so simple message and yet so powerful to understand, realizing in a practical prospective. It’s just truly amazing. I just can’t explain it in batter then this simple words.
