It is the Indian values that make us win!

IMG_3363

We Indians are known for our values and culture. That is what makes us special! The love for the nation is a natural phenomenon, something that I’ve always believed you don’t need to teach. India has always had a rich heritage and culture that is eclectic in nature. We have our values and that is what differentiates us from others. We aren’t materialistic, we value people over things. We believe that God made people to be loved and things to be used but unfortunately nowadays people love things and they use people!

 

I’ll share a candid experience, a situation wherein I kept my patience and didn’t leave my Indian values and things took care of themselves then. I was introduced into a new project and the project lead was an American guy, nerd who hardly spoke. We were total seven people in the team and I was the last and the youngest to join. The other five people were Indians as well and were pretty pedantic in nature. As I was new in the team I didn’t have a lot of idea about the project and apparently most of the discussions were esoteric. Things became tough, I couldn’t perform as no one was ready to transfer the project knowledge or help me get started with things.

 

Months went by but I didn’t lose hope. I started working doubly hard. To be candid, there were times when I felt like leaving the job but I wanted to leave on a good note. We Indians respect people and no matter how arrogant a person is, if you continue showing good behavior he will eventually succumb to your good natured personality. That’s what I did as well; no matter how bad I was treated initially I kept respecting others. Good behavior, patience and hard work helped me carve a niche for myself in the team.

 

The project lead called me one day in his cabin. I was surprised to hear that I was given a promotion. He said to me: ‘Things weren’t easy for you in the beginning but I appreciate your hard work. I have seen guys quit jobs for reasons like these. What made you stay here? I’m just a tad curious to know!’ I smiled and thanked him for the promotion letter. I told him: ‘We Indians are known for our values. We respect people and we always maintain our honesty towards our work. That said we like winning people! Yes you are right, I could have left the job as well but I wanted to prove a point.’ Well he looked pretty impressed and we shook hands as if we both understood each other.

 

 

You shouldn’t compromise your values just because things get tough at times. After all that is what we Indians are known for! We are extremely glad that Lufthansa recognizes the global Indian influence and is celebrating the same which is extremely apparent in their latest TVC. This definitely makes Lufthansa #MoreIndianThanYouThink

The impact of stress on productivity!

Light

In this era of rat-race and cut throat competition, the term is extremely common! People often use this term and the professionals use it even more. Stress actually reduces our productivity so we should always try to mitigate stress in our lives. There are many demerits of stress and it leads to decline always. So we must always try to stay optimistic and cheerful in life to avoid stress and increase the productivity. Stress has great potential to reduce our productivity in both personal as well as professional life! Try to remain happy and have an optimistic approach in life. Also, always try to help others and discuss things!

 

A great way to reduce stress is to exercise. Yes, working out can really help to reduce stress in life and I have observed this myself. Hit the gym and sweat out all your frustration and stress! That’s a great idea to stay healthy and to mitigate stress at the same time. People who exercise daily are happier and have lesser amount of stress levels in their life. So I would advice all to start hitting the gym not only to stay fit but also to reduce the stress levels. A healthy mind dwells in a healthy body! Health is of great importance in life!

 

You should also try to socialize to reduce stress! Go out and make few friends. Often being alone or lonely becomes a major reason for the stress in life! Instead one must try to socialize and mingle with others in the society. This way you can share your joys as well and it’s always great to have a nice social circle in life. Thus try to socialize a bit in order to mitigate stress in life. Always, remember that the impact of stress on productivity is huge and detrimental as well! So, step out and meet some people!

 

Another great way to reduce stress and its impact on productivity is by travelling! Yes whenever in stress, travel! Travelling is a great thing to do and try to travel like a local! Travel to explore things in depth. Travelling has a great positive impact on us and this helps to reduce the negative impact of stress. I have observed it myself that travelling does wonders to your confidence and is a great way to reduce stress as well!

 

Don’t take things too seriously in life. This needs to be implemented in the professional life in particular. Also, try to refrain from indulging in negative gossips or conversations. Positivity is extremely important in life and it also helps to increase productivity as well! Try to meditate as well if possible to reduce the stress levels in your life. Try to make sure that stress doesn’t impact your productivity in both personal as well as in professional life!
