Belt !!

November 15, 2013

Belts are worn around the waist so that the trousers don’t slip down.

Did you know belt can also be worn to prevent buckles of the trousers bursting open ? 

Unfortunately today I’m wearing my belt for the second reason.

7 Amazing Success Lessons from Thomas Edison

October 14, 2010

7 Amazing Success Lessons from Thomas Edison:

  1. Impossibility

    “Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged.”

    Roadblocks are sign-posts letting you know that success is just around the corner. Roadblocks are there to keep the uncommitted out. Roadblocks qualify you for success. Don’t get discouraged when things seem impossible, it’s darkest just before dawn.


  • Perspiration

    Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.

    Thomas Edison said, “The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it goes around wearing overalls and it looks like hard work.” There is no success without hard work; success is something that is only earned after much labor. Success can only come to those who labor for it, it is through labor that you become a valuable person, and your value attracts success.


  • Capability

    “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”

    Most people are living considerably beneath their capabilities. They’ve never focused all of their efforts on a singular task, so they are completely unaware of the power they possess. Everyone is good at something, and if singular focus is given to that talent over the course of years, amazing things will be done. You are capable of astonishing yourself!

  • Solitude

    “The best thinking has been done in solitude.”

    I have had my best thoughts locked away in a quiet room. Take time everyday to escape to a quiet room, if only for five minutes, to have your best thoughts. It’s hard to think about achieving the impossible, when you’re surrounded with people wanting to discuss only the possible. Escape to a quiet room today, and begin to see all your possibilities.

  • Restlessness

    “Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress.”

    Thomas Edison said, “Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.” As long as you’re perfectly content you can’t make progress. Nothing happens until you become discontented. If you can live with being 30 pounds over weight, if you’re content with that idea (not happy, but content), then you don’t have the power to change it. Remember, “discontent is the first necessity of progress.”

  • Perspective

    I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.

    Perspective is everything! Edison said, “Results! Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results. I know several thousand things that won’t work.” That’s the way we should view our life, not as a compilation of failures, but as series of necessary experiments letting us know what doesn’t work. From this perspective, we can move into doing what works, from this perspective we can succeed.

  • Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common Sense

    “The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are: Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common sense.”

    Nothing can replace hard work, it’s fundamental to success. If you’re not willing to work hard, you don’t even have a chance at success. No one succeeds and says “That was really easy!”

    Additionally, you have to have a no-give-up-attitude; you must be willing to stick to a task that you’re passionate about, and never lose focus. And the final key is “common sense,” we all have it, but we all don’t use it like we should.

  • In closing, “you have what it takes to succeed,” you have the ability to work hard, to stay focused, and to use common sense, the question is, “Are you going to do it?” I think you are.

    Love between IE and Mozilla teams

    September 23, 2009

    Despite the cold reception from Microsoft’s top management, the Internet Explorer development team maintains a relationship with Mozilla. They meet regularly to discuss web standards such as extended validation certificates.[151] In 2005 Mozilla agreed to allow Microsoft to use its Web feed logo in the interest of common graphical representation of the Web feeds feature.[152]

    In August 2006, Microsoft offered to help Mozilla integrate Firefox with the then-forthcoming Windows Vista,[153] an offer Mozilla accepted.[154]

    In October 2006, as congratulations for a successful ship of Firefox 2, the Internet Explorer 7 development team sent a cake to Mozilla.[155][156] As a nod to the browser wars, some readers joked about the cake being poisoned, while others jokingly suggested that Mozilla send a cake back along with the recipe, in reference to the open-source software movement.[157] The IE development team sent another cake on June 17, 2008, upon the successful release of Firefox 3.[158]

    I knew about the love relationship Google shares with Mozilla. Mozilla is earning big bucks on this relationship.

    Never knew that IE and Mozilla dev teams share co-cordial relationship. The cake incident is funny.
