Hey ! my book review of Christopher Mayer’s ” 100 Baggers : Stocks that return 100-1 & how to find them “ now features online on Outlook Business....just also happily observed that Stock Select for 2016 published in December 2015 is trending online as the No 1 most popular read on Outlook Business this year !….surely because Stock Select for 2015 ,Shemaroo @ Rs 159 given in December 2014 has rocketed over 100% inside a year & a half to current Rs 325+ levels …quite aware that if this year’s Select does not Click in the years ahead that ‘100 baggers’ will be read without the 1 ! 🙂
🙂 It is a S Day alright…Sunday Newspapers to Sanjaya Baru’s Controversial Book to all the S’s in the Premier League Derby
Began with devouring the Sunday Newspapers with my Sunday Norm South Indian Masala Dosas and Sambhar at Sonarica Home
Emailed four interesting ‘Reads’ to my Family as below that began with a Sunday Quote
Life is about creating yourself, not finding yourself — George Bernard Shaw
Sunday Mumbai Mirror ~ Travel Column by 29 year old Marketing Executive Vahishta Mistry ~ he sold off all his possessions and set out to explore the world…he writes about Koh Chang,a an island in Thailand and the uncrowded beaches on the eastern side where he spend the night in a beach tent and went diving
Came across an interesting take on why Networking Gatherings can be either great or really bad ~ shallow,stressful and unsatisfying
This is an observation,view and experience shared by Greg Mckeown author of ~The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
He speaks of the classic top 3 Networking Mistakes that capable people make
- Exchanging too many Business Cards…they become meaningless…you won’t remember them and they you ! ~ instead one genuine relationship formed is worth a fistful of business cards
- Mindful Listening ~ Most look over people’s shoulders while in a conversation ~ when the person you are conversing with realises you are actually listening and focusing on him or her the bonding is faster and leads to a meaningful relationship
- Playing out FOMO rather than JOMO ~ One wants to attend everything and meet everyone ! for the Fear Of Missing Out ! …just taking time off or concentrating on what really is of interest to you is engaging in the more meaningful and satisfying Joy Of Missing Out ! ~ it gives one the space to relax,talk without an agenda and scheduled content and can spark out spontaneous ideas and forge deeper relationships
Have attended quite a few boring networking seminars where ‘what’s for Lunch?’ seems to be the highlight !
But they’re a few I have quite enjoyed as the interaction was often one to one and I have been able to forge meaningful relationships…an interesting one was a high profile SAFE Conference in Mauritius ~ 100 top professionals heading regulatory,broking ,exchanges and bank entities across 20 nations…some where even governors of their central banks and consulate generals…..the first day itself was becoming a drag and a monotony although the speaker list was impressive but the delivery was not !…..mid way I just took off on a solo sail in the Indian Ocean ! and took a pic too and blogged it and carried it in my presentation at the Conference the next day and was overwhelmed by the response to the humorous presentation…grew my reputation multifold and made a lot of friends that day across nations and received many invitations to speak and hold workshops in many nations …two broking houses offered me to name my price to join them urgently and head their fundamental research and client servicing operations !…like they needed me ‘yesterday’ they said ! …got invited and featured on a TV Discussion on Foreign Exchange REER Rates and Impacts
Reclaim Your Life Now !
What inspired me to blog this on a lovey cool Sunday Morning were two interesting news articles today ~ one in the Sunday Mid-Day and one in the Mumbai Mirror
Sunday Mid-day : Smartphones: The new homebreakers ~ Imagine waking up and hugging your phone instead of your children or spouse just to check if you missed any calls or messages or emails while you slept at night ! ~ Get a Life Guys ! ~ just junk your Smartphone and go back to one that allows you only to simply make or receive calls and sms and throws in a games like building bricks ! ~ “But Dad ! you send me a Smiley Hug everyday from your Smartphone !” retorted my Son ~ “That’s different Son,I use it well ! and how else can I hug you when you go and come at odd hours as an upcoming Sound Engineer !” I justified
“Capitalism 24902” and “Gaia Rocks!” and “doing good is good for business”…read on….
