Did you know..

Did you know…

… that today is National Cherry Popsicle Day? The Popsicle was originally developed by 11-year-old Frank Epperson in 1905. Frank had left his fruit-flavored soda outside on the porch with a stir stick in it and the drink froze to the stick. It took 18 more years for Epperson to apply for a patent for a “frozen ice on a stick” called the Epsicle ice pop, which his children re-named the Popsicle. Celebrate today by how? Eating a Popsicle of course! 😉

People often set very high goals for themselves and this is the reason they often fail to achieve them. While a person’s career path is one of the most structured graphs one can have in his life, it depends on how we plan things to make a smooth transition from one job responsibility to another.

In other words, a person needs to have a good goal to be able to achieve it. A good goal is the one that has five distinct features. They need to be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timely. These features make a goal a SMART goal.

Specific − Your goal must be clearly definable, and explained.

Measurable − Your goal can be expressed in empirical terms, as in days, hours, money invested, etc.

Achievable − It is okay if your goal pushes you past your comfort zone but it must still be achievable.

Relevant − Your goals must directly or indirectly address a need in your life. A goal that doesn’t solve a problem is not worth pursuing.

Timely − The goal must be time-bound; there is no point in pushing a goal into the future as that decreases the drive and need to achieve it.

Is Your Goal SMART?

Specific − What exactly do you want to achieve?

Measurable − How will you know that you have achieved this goal?

Achievable − Can you put in the effort, resources and money into achieving this goal? If no, then how are you planning to get them?

Relevant − What issues in your life will be addressed when you achieve this goal?

Timely − When will you achieve this goal?

What are the problems in your path?

This morning : Random Phrase for today

Ugly Duckling


One who may seem plain at first in appearance or capability, but later turns out to be beautiful or great.

English is a FUNNY language – Said Shri Amitabh Bachchan in a film dialogue. i fully Agree.

I was writing to a Mentee of mine who is struggling and in the endline mentioned – Hope you face your Waterloo soon !   I had of course, heard someone say it. I knew it was about Napoleon Bonaparte but I did not know the meaning.

I sent the mail and checked the dictionary and said WTH – let me find my right word.  And Lo and Behold ! I found it.  I wanted to say – let this incident / function today prove to be your Watershed moment and all your struggles should come to fruition!

So, you can see, English is such a funny language.  I was sending a short resume on whatsapp to a membership incharge of Toastmasters and I said, i was an Orator, Debator and extempore speaker and I wish to relearn speaking skills as redundancy has set in.  And What?

After a while I saw a message with smileys and thumbs ups ! and I said, what happened?  he liked my resume?  And I read and re-read again.

It read I was and Orator, SENATOR ( capitals mine) and I said WTH 1  This is T9 and Grammarly dictionary apps promoting me! WOW!

On both occasions I laughed inwardly at my own self and my follies and said Oh – perhaps the morning Random Phrase is coming true for me.

Amen !
