Your work is a reflection of you! When I had just started working, right after high school, I only had one aim in my mind that was to prove that I was worth it, that I deserved opportunities, that I could do extraordinary things. And with that ambition in mind, I set off on an adventure of doing my work, pursuing objectives and just getting things done. I had little care for quality or for what the impact of my work would be on other people. For me it was just about getting things done. Later in my career, I was lucky enough to work with an amazing leader, who was also a very good coach. And after I handed over a few assignments in my usual zeal of getting it done fast, he told me the following: If you continue working in a hurried fashion, without worrying about quality, soon it will become YOUR standard, and what you will be known for. Your work is a reflection of who you are. Make sure that when you hand over something, it is nothing but a masterpiece! These words stayed with me ever since. And it is so true, isnt it? No matter what we do in life, what good is it if its not of the best quality? Whether we are baking a cake, painting a canvas, working on a proposal, coaching a colleague what good is it if we are not giving it our best? So heres a toast to ALWAYS doing our best, no matter what the situation is. Stay safe, stay healthy!

Learnings from the pandemic! The past days have really shown us what is really important in life. We have learnt that we can live without our favourite brand of pasta, and we can adjust on simple food. We have learnt that we can be Chefs or Masterchefs ourselves, and not always depend on the local bakery store or restaurants. We have learnt that doing some housework wont kill us and can in fact be very relaxing. We have learnt that if we know how to plan (for example, food preparation) and correctly utilise them, things can last longer. We have learnt that sometimes homemade, home cooked, home grown are much better than anything we buy. We have learnt that we are stronger than we thought, more talented than we imagined, and so much more resourceful than we ever believed possible. But most importantly, we have learnt that what really truly matters in life are the people that are in it the relationships we cultivate, the people we love and care about!

Attitude is not everything - positive attitude is! No matter where we are in life, no matter our status, the job we do, the house we live in, no matter what our upbringing has been I have found that our attitude is the most important thing to pay attention to. A person, with the right attitude, will definitely go much faster, much further, no matter what his/her beginnings looked like. In times of adversity, in moments of crisis, we often find that some of us will adopt the right attitude and keep a positive mind about how to overcome this challenge, and others will, on the contrary create more problems by fostering negative thoughts or influencing others in the same negative spiral. In situations like this, its the former group that comes out stronger, and emerges a winner. Having a positive attitude leads us to success and happiness. It helps everyone cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. It brings optimism into human life and makes it easier to work around our worries and negative thinking. And right now, with the crisis we are going through, having the right attitude is the most important thing to have. We cannot control everything, we cannot change what is happening around us. But we can control how we react to it, we can control how we want to sail in these troubled waters!
