The key learning is equally powerful: The application of additional heat (effort) to whatever task or activity you undertake will not only help you achieve the primary objective you seek, but also reap exponential rewards that are possible by applying one extra degree of effort.Imagine the possibilities …
Add just a few hours each month to your professional development outside of the work and you will have invested the equivalent of a full work. Make just one extra contact each day …a sales call … a customer … a brief discussion with a col- league … an encouraging talk with a member of your team. With contact comes opportunity. At the end of the year you’ll have opened more than 200 additional doors of possibility.
Eliminate one half hour of television watching each day and you’ll gain 182.5 hours each year to use elsewhere (equivalent to four and a half weeks of work).Imagine YOUR possibilities. Where can you give a little more effort? What small changes can you make that will add up over time? As a leader, what can you do – what will you do – to enjoy the rewards that come from “turning up the heat” one extra degree? Find those opportunities … and seize them!

I successfully took and passed PMP. Thanks to you and to your extremely well taken training sessions. Your course material was helpful to me to pass the exam. There is absolutely no way I could have gained the necessary knowledge and insight needed to pass this very difficult exam without it.

I really enjoyed the 3-day training and impressed with your teaching style. At the end of the training I felt that I acquired lot of knowledge (that you shared; espcially your practical experiences both at work and in personal life) from you and gained more confidence.

- Obligation to God
- Obligation to Self
- Obligation to Family
- Obligation to Work
- Obligation to Society
This positive life is not going to be a habit overnight. Our daily activities, professional or personal should be governed by these obligations and the best way out is to use the daily planner to plan out tomorrow, today - in writing and then following them, so that there will not be much room for negativity in our daily life. Dont think that miracles will happen overnight. Faith and positve life can be compared to a mustard seed. It has to be nurtured and grown, till it becomes big and strong;
Jesus put before them another parable: 'The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.' He told them another parable: 'The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened'.
Have a great positive day, filled with positive actions only !
