Living in a Box


The life has been like a tick of the clock for many of the people living on a corporate guidebook. The slightest variation from the routine caused havoc and chaos. The catch is that the routine that comprises the day cycle is planned enough make it keep ticking.

It would be worth round here to cite about one such specimen. The guy starts his day at 8:30 Am, still drooling over the late night sleep. Sleep slowly moves over to getting to the corporate suite and starting to office. The first activity in office would be going through the mails to ensure everything is fine and running. Then, off to the cafeteria at 10:30 Am for the breakfast. Then, back to the work till 1 Pm when the hunger calls for lunch. The lunch could be the office served, or a food court ‘product’ which is basically good to be called as a filler than lunch.

Then, call of duty fights with the call of sleep till the knock off is declared as a tea break by 4 PM. Refreshed, it will be a busy hours coming forth, for the reports and updates and the time sheet entries.

Then, the final wind up and off to home. Some time with family, or movie with dinner, snooze snooze and wolah, day next..

My Suggestion : Please bring in more colour to your life. Hit the road, run few miles, plan weekend outing, write a blog 🙂 , in short, life is not ‘just’ work alone.

To continue working


Sometimes, after all the effort you put in, seldom the good work is appreciated, magnanimous will power is required to keep the morale high. As I figured out in my last blog post, the level of job satisfaction determines how closely how can meet the expectations.

In stem of the process oriented work places, the role and responsibilities are set based on process and project requirements. But, when there is no process, the job routine comprises a fluctuating series of responsibilities, an undefined boundary of roles and answerable to multiple calls. This creates a chaos in the system, which ultimately affects the deliverables and the cost rather that the participating resources.

In a non process oriented environment, it becomes very difficult to make the efforts measurable and the added pain of indecision makes each day more difficult to pass.

Three Way Rivaltries – Blondes, Brunettes, and Redheads

Among shallow white women an antagonism exists between these three hair-colors, and it is 100% based on stereotype. Blondes, to begin with, are typically thought of as less intelligent than brunettes, but also more attractive and—presumably because of this— they “have more fun”. While it is true that poll results show most men would rather date a blonde woman, a majority report preferring to marry a brunette one, following the belief that brunettes are smarter and more competent. Redheads, the least common group, are the X-factor in this dynamic. They are said to be more passionate, less patient, and far more sexually energetic. One juicy piece of trivia: Redhead are scientifically proven to be more tolerant to electrically-induced pain than are non-Redheads. They are, however, more vulnerable to pain that is thermally-induced. You’re welcome for that.

Top Ten Failed Apocalyptic Predictions – Pandemic

An epidemic is when a disease outbreak strikes a large number of people, in a given area, at the same time. The epidemic becomes a pandemic when it spreads over a wide geographical area, or throughout many countries. Although most epidemics are caused by infectious organisms, the term can be applied to an outbreak of any chronic disease, such as cancer or heart disease.

Bubonic plague (1300-1400), typhus (1501- 1587), SARS (2002), recurring epidemics of scarlet fever, typhoid and yellow fever (1865-1873), and HIV (1980-present) are some infectious diseases that have resulted in epidemic or pandemic outbreaks. It might not be swine or avian flu, but flu researchers say a deadly pandemic is not a case of if, but when.

The ancients couldn’t predict when this would happen, but with recent outbreaks of swine and avian flu, it seems likely that another flu like this is on the horizon. The last great plague (Spanish flu) hit 1918-1920. Researchers estimate that between 20 million to 100 million were killed. The call for sanitary reform and the development of new vaccines at the end of the nineteenth century ended the rapidly spreading plague. However, since then the incidence of infectious diseases has steadily risen in the past 100 years. Infection spreads more easily now due to people traveling more often. The outbreak of anthrax in 2001, and the threat of biological warfare suggest that the US is neither equipped to handle a mass outbreak, nor the panic resulting from such outbreak.
