Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0Presenting to an audience is different than presenting to a client. Understand the difference in purpose of the presentation. When you present to a client, you want to highlight your capabilities and elements that solve a particular issue for the client. Presenting to an audience is perhaps to make an altogether different point. Be clear about the purpose of the presentation, it will help you slant your talk accompanying the presentation, […]

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0Doubt means a discussion within your head. Where one voice says- i like this and the other says no, i like that, and many voices in your head don’t seem to agree on one way. We also call this confusion. I have always said confusion is good, it says you are not prepared enough yet, you dont enough yet, there is more that is needed to move ahead. It is a human tendency […]

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0Change is not a choice. One is always changing whether we want to or not, we change with environment, with people, with food, with age and with seasons. Every time we respond to a stimuli we change. Also we all have good and bad sides, yin and yang.. and like perception of balance in Design Good or Weird is a perception only. What is weird for you may be normal for […]

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0I guess you are referring to a state where if you have just had lunch and you are sitting in a briefing..your mind wanders around, and the briefing doesn’t reach you. or there is a cricket match going on in Australia but you have to be doing something urgent in the office and you just cant do it…or you are expecting to meet a friend in the coffeeshop, and in the […]

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0Yoga, Meditation are sure ways. But then there are other ways to reach the state (without calling them yoga). I guess by white space, we mean peace, emptiness, stillness, mind not wandering, not thinking too much, not worrying too much. All these are signs of a mind that is not fulfilled, not satisfied. So i guess first is to think what is it that you worry about…and why. Sometimes in life, […]

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0Ofcourse there can be to-do list for life, except that it will not be one list, but a series of lists. We always have it, infact everyone has a list for everyone else too. In India your parents have a ever changing to-list for you. You need to have a changing to-do list too. Take life as a staircase, where you have to take steps to move up..so make a list […]

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0From Wikipedia: ” Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the “last minute” before a deadline.” In simple english it is wasting time when we know we should be doing something useful. I think it works a bit differently […]

Q: What’s the best way to accept critics?

Leave a comment
Designer / Entrepreneur / Personality

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0this has two questions with subtle difference and i think they both need answers in our profession as well as in life. Critics and Criticism- we need to learn to separate both. Our first reaction when we hear someone say something else than what we want to hear, is to take it personally. We start looking at the motive of the critic and somehow prove that this person had a biased […]

Designer / Personality

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0A: I have thought about this a lot and i used to face this in earlier years of my career..”Creative Block’. This is a situation where you just don’t seem to to be able to think beyond the solutions you already know, you start feeling uninspired and work starts becoming boring. It doesn’t remain fun and you tend to start thinking of other things rather than the problem at hand. There […]
