Team Lunch

Posted in Uncategorized on March 15, 2015 by amotings

Sharing a recent positive experience where a large group had lunch brought in from a top hotel in the city.

Food is the easiest victim of small talk. However, it was refreshing to see the critics of taste were smacking their lips instead. Nothing lacked for anyone.

If there is one criticism, it would be that I found myself shamelessly throwing aside my acquired frugalness in gorging food. I had, for most part of this year’s Pongal to Baisaki months, succeeded in refraining from entertaining myself in taste. But the hermit fell for the charms of Menaka-isque looking yellow sweet-balls dipped in sugar syrups, the decked up rice masquerading as Biryani, a baazar of vegetables and cold-cream(aka ice-cream). I forgot about my fast from pleasure.

Burp !

Cliffton’s Strength Finder

Posted in Uncategorized on September 4, 2011 by amotings

I got the book, Strengths Finder 2.0, and I took the Cliffton’s Strength Finder test. And my top five strengths turned out to be:

– Connectedness

– Intellection

– Empathy

– Maximizer

– Developer

As I read the book, I hope to understand how my strengths can help others benefit. For now, the satisfaction is that it is not a surprise where my strengths lie.

I do wonder sometimes, if I do not get to exercise other skills, because I keep focussing on one skill.

“Tuesdays with Morrie”
– An old Man, a Young man and Life’s greatest lesson
by Mitch Albom

A very simple book which is what makes it so beautiful. Morrie Schwartz was
Mitch Albom’s favorite professor in real life. Mitch happens to be a
journalist. Professor Morrie had a final course. Mitch used to meet him
every tuesday to give him company and talk to him. This book, a true story,
came out of the meetings.
