62 ways to make 2010 your best year - by Robin Sharma

1. Remember that leadership isn't about your position. It's about your influence.
2. Get fit like a pro athlete.
3. Lift people up versus tearing people down.
4. Protect your good name. An impeccable reputation takes a lifetime to build. And 60 seconds to lose.
5. Surround yourself with positive, ethical people who are committed to excellence.
6. Remember that even a 1% daily innovation rate amounts to at least a 100% rate of innovation in 100 days.
7. Believe in your dreams (even when others laugh at them).
8. Measure your success, not by your net worth but by your self worth (and how happy you feel).
9. Take an intelligent risk every 24 hours. No try-No Win.
10. Read "Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist".
11. Watch "Man on Wire".
12. Regardless of your title at work, be a team builder.
13. Remember that business is all about relationships and human connections.
14. Say "please" more.
15. Say "thank you" more.
16. Know your Big 5: the five things that need to happen by the end of this year for you to feel its been your best year yet.
17. Read your Big 5 every morning while the rest of the world is asleep.
18. Read "As You Think". At least twice this year.
19. Be willing to fail. It's the price of greatness.
20. Focus less on making money and more on creating value.
21. Spend less, save more.
22. Leave everything you touch better than you found it.
23. Be the most positive person in every room you're in.
24. Run your own race.
24. Stay true to your deepest values and best ideals.
25. Write a handwritten thank you note to a customer/friend/loved one every day.
26. When you travel, send love letters to your kids on hotel stationary. In time, they'll have a rich collection to remember your travels by.
27. Read "Atlas Shrugged".
28. Be a problem solver versus a trouble maker.
29. Rather than doing many things at mediocrity do just a few things-but at mastery.
30. Honor your parents.
31. Commit to doing great work-whether anyone notices it or not. It's one of life's best sources of happiness.
32. Give more than you receive (another of the truths of happiness).
33. Have your 1/3/5/10/25 years goals recorded on paper and review them weekly.
34. Be patient. Slow and steady wins the race. The only reason businesses that went from zero to a billion in a year or two get featured in magazines is because 99% of businesses require a lot more time to win.
34. Underpromise and then overdeliver.
35. See part of your job as "a developer of people" (whether you work in the boardroom or the mailroom).
36. Wear your heart on your sleeve. When people see you're real, they'll fall in love with you.
37. Be authentic versus plastic.
38. Read "The Alchemist".
39. Remember that life wants you to win. So get out of your own way.
40. Consider that behind every fear lives your next level of growth (and power).
41. Eat less food.
42. Drink more water.
43. Rest when you need to.
44. Read "SUCCESS" magazine.
45. Write your eulogy and them live your life backwards.
46. Demand the best from yourself.
47. Remember that the more you go to your limits, the more your limits will expand.
48. See everything that happens to you as an opportunity to grow (and therefore, as a precious gift).
49. Be obsessed with learning and self-development.
50. Become comfortable alone (you are the only person you get to be with your whole life).
51. Smile. It's a stunningly effective way to win in business and life.
52. Reflect on the shortness of life.
53. Be bold when it comes to your dreams but gentle with those you love.
54. Remember that success is dangerous because it can kill drive/innovation/passion and going the extra mile. Be successful yet stay hungry.
55. Read "The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin".
56. Be of deep value to this world.
57. Own beautiful things but don't let them own you.
58. Use excellent words.
59. Laugh more.
60. Don't complain, gossip or be negative.
61. Plan as if you'll live forever but live as if you'll die tomorrow.
62. Feel free to pass these lessons on to those you want to help.

An engineer in final year

This is the first major blog i am writing on my part. Today the results for TE were out and I came up with d thought of writing d first blog regarding d analysis of the semester (as fb status are too small :) ).

The semester started off with me in FRUIT SALAD organizing committee at hostel. It taught many new things . My favorite was a speech to the JUNIORS to inculcate enthusiasm in them (to make fruit salad for 2000 guests isn't a joke). It worked out very well and people came to me asking whether I had prepared it before hand but it was totally run-time. There was a point where I had a few clashes with outgoing students but resolved a day before the event as I thought it was necessary not for anyone's ego to come in between the traditional event .

After that i focussed on building on my own web-site using PHP and MySql which i learnt during my last vacations on my own (i hate coaching classes). So within 3 days i made . I was very glad to get a free hosting server for me and the web site still runs very fine.

Then was the major crux of the semester , the mega-technical event INC (Impetus N Concepts) -2010 , which is a national level technical event. I had given a thought previously of becoming the event coordinator (EC) in first year itself after seeing the seniors' craze . But , things on the election day did not go pretty well in my favour (Nachiket A and Neha S know it well) . So, somehow (better to say , anyhow) I , along with Nachiket , became the joint EC 's from computer department.

The entire functioning took around 2 months for the 7 day show to be put up .It also brought out the leader in me , the perfectionist in me and a true appreciator in me . I had 2 logos in mind and also told my team mates-
1."Some things are to be ignored for a successful event"
2."Bring out the best without considering self favour".
The event went along very well in which we had prize money of more than 7 lacs INR (not to mention money collected through marketing and publicity).
In between I also took part in few C coding and web competitions in a team of 2 and won at VIT,Sinhagad,PVG (with sahil,aditya and keshav). Also,i won an award for highest in EM-3 (Maths- I love it and had aimed to top in it and i achieved it - 90/100.)

Then after the event was over , hardly any time was left to complete college formalities - seminars and submissions. I would especially appreciate lab teachers for allowing me to come to lab for 10 min from a total of 2 hours when something new was taught . The trust for me was visible in everyone's eyes (including the convener , team mates and teachers) and thats what kept me going.

PLs came , I studied hard , as I hadn't attended the lectures properly . I pushed my comfort zone more harder as I know efforts required will be more . But all is well , as I got 72.2 % (3 rd in college )in TE and having an aggregate of 75.8% in engineering till now.

Between the PLs and result was a very important thing - PLACEMENT , a dream for every engineer (life for some and a formality for some) . For me , it was quiet important as i want things very specific as planned for me. I prepared hard and got placed in TIBCO and i am very much pleased.

So,to conclude , I would thank each and everyone , who in anyway has been associated with me because i learn many things from you event though you wont notice it. Few dear friends -
Sahil,Arvind,Darshil,Abhijeet,Nikita,Trupti,Aditi,Jyotsna,Siddhi......many more .

God thanks for giving such mesmerizing and learning semester . Now only last 2 semesters remain . All the best to all .

"Think simple , think high ,but be very clear and the thoughts become reality ."

A diplomat,
(Do i see jyotsna smiling :) )
