Avoid Heaitation (real story)

Neil Armstrong, he is the 1st person to set his foot in moon.But, do you know who was supposed to be the 1st person? Many don’t know…
His name is Edwin C Aldarin…

He was the pilot for the Apollo mission. He was working for the American Airforce. Moreover he had experience of space walking, hence selected as the pilot

Neil Armstrong worked for the American Navy. He was selected for his courage as co-pilot. 

When the Apollo mission landed on moon, they received a command from NASA, “pilot first”.

But Aldarin was hesitant, “what will happen”, “will I get sucked in or will I burn out”, etc. The hesitation was not for hours, but few seconds. 

In the meantime, NASA sent the next command, “co-pilot next”.

Within next second, Neil Armstrong put his foot on the moon became part of world history. 
World history was changed in 1 second… Though Aldarin had the qualification and talent, because of hesitation, he is not recognised by many people. 

The world remembers only person who comes first…

This is a good example of how people lose out because of hesitation fear. Whenever you see the moon, remember this, a moments hesitation can stop us from our greatest victory. 

We all have great potential in us, the only thing that stops us from achieving what we are supposed to achieve is our hesitation, fear and shyness. 

Many people are shy to ask, shy to appreciate others, some are shy to share this message. If we fail to do the right things, we will most likely do the wrong things.

9 Reasons Why Plants Make Your Workplace So Much Better

Apart from the fact that your desk will look much better, plants are great for your henkgh! You might find the idea a little strange initially, but once you get a plant and start to water it every day, you will actually start to care for the little guy!
  Check out these henkgh benefits of having an office plant.

1. Lower stress
Workplaces can be extremely stressful environments, but having a plant on your desk can help counter some of that stress and keep you more relaxed.
2. Higher productivity
Multiple research studies have found that in addition to lowering stress, plants increase productivity as well. The two are actually related – you’ve probably noticed that when you’re super stressed out, you can barely get anything done.
3. Better air quality
Today’s enclosed office spaces have extremely poor ventilation, making them hotbeds for harmful germs and toxins. Plants work like filtration systems, absorbing the harmful agents and purifying the air. 
4. More comfortable working conditions
Your plant doubles up as your personal air conditioner and humidifier as well. Plants carry out a process known as transpiration, which cools the air and releases moisture into the atmosphere, thereby making your workplace more comfortable.  
5. Henkghier skin
Sitting in an air conditioned office all day can cause your skin to dry up, but having plants around you can prevent that. The moisture that plants emit can help raise the humidity levels, bringing them closer to normal and thereby protecting your skin. Dry skin is more prone to wrinkles, since it stiffens and cracks easily.  

6. Fewer sick days
Having plants all over the office has actually been shown to reduce employee sickness rates considerably.
7. More creativity
Research has found that introducing plants into an office environment can up the creativity quotient by a whopping 15 percent!

8. Less noise
Your plant may not accomplish this one alone, but a bunch of plants might do the trick. Plants absorb sound and can help lower the overall noise level by about 5 decibels. That’s actually one of the reasons why they are planted on highways! 

9. More happiness
Research shows that interacting with nature in any way has a profound effect on our psyche, increasing our sense of well-being and making us happier on a subconscious level. 

 11 Things Smart People Won’t Say

There are some things you simply never want to say at work. These phrases carry special power: they have an uncanny ability to make you look bad even when the words are true. Worst of all, there’s no taking them back once they slip out. I’m not talking about shocking slips of the tongue, off-color jokes, or politically incorrect faux pas. These aren’t the only ways to make yourself look bad. Often it’s the subtle remarks—the ones that paint us as incompetent and unconfident—that do the most damage. No matter how talented you are or what you’ve accomplished, there are certain phrases that instantly change the way people see you and can forever cast you in a negative light. These phrases are so loaded with negative implications that they undermine careers in short order. How many of these career killers have you heard around the office lately?
1. “It’s not fair”
Everyone knows that life isn’t fair. Saying it’s not fair suggests that you think life is supposed to be fair, which makes you look immature and naïve. If you don’t want to make yourself look bad, you need to stick to the facts, stay constructive, and leave your interpretation out of it. For instance, you could say, “I noticed that you assigned Ann that big project I was hoping for. Would you mind telling me what went into that decision? I’d like to know why you thought I wasn’t a good fit, so that I can work on improving those skills.”
2. “This is the way it’s always been done”
Technology-fueled change is happening so fast that even a six-month-old process could be outdated. Saying this is the way it’s always been done not only makes you sound lazy and resistant to change, but it could make your boss wonder why you haven’t tried to improve things on your own. If you really are doing things the way they’ve always been done, there’s almost certainly a better way.

3. “No problem”
When someone asks you to do something or thanks you for doing something, and you tell them no problem, you’re implying that their request should have been a problem. This makes people feel as though they’ve imposed upon you. What you want to do instead is to show people that you’re happy to do your job. Say something like “It was my pleasure” or “I’ll be happy to take care of that.” It’s a subtle difference in language, but one that has a huge impact on people.

4. “I think …/This may be a silly idea …/I’m going to ask a stupid question”
These overly passive phrases instantly erode your credibility. Even if you follow these phrases with a great idea, they suggest that you lack confidence, which makes the people you’re speaking to lose confidence in you. Don’t be your own worst critic. If you’re not confident in what you’re saying, no one else will be either. And, if you really don’t know something, say, “I don’t have that information right now, but I’ll find out and get right back to you.”
5. “This will only take a minute”
Saying that something only takes a minute undermines your skills and gives the impression that you rush through tasks. Unless you’re literally going to complete the task in 60 seconds, feel free to say that it won’t take long, but don’t make it sound as though the task can be completed any sooner than it can actually be finished.
6. “I’ll try”
Just like the word think, try sounds tentative and suggests that you lack confidence in your ability to execute the task. Take full ownership of your capabilities. If you’re asked to do something, either commit to doing it or offer an nkgernative, but don’t say that you’ll try because it sounds like you won’t try all that hard.
7. “He’s lazy/incompetent/a jerk”
There is no upside to making a disparaging remark about a colleague. If your remark is accurate, everybody already knows it, so there’s no need to point it out. If your remark is inaccurate, you’re the one who ends up looking like a jerk. There will always be rude or incompetent people in any workplace, and chances are that everyone knows who they are. If you don’t have the power to help them improve or to fire them, then you have nothing to gain by broadcasting their ineptitude. Announcing your colleague’s incompetence comes across as an insecure attempt to make you look better. Your callousness will inevitably come back to haunt you in the form of your coworkers’ negative opinions of you.
8. “That’s not in my job description”
This often sarcastic phrase makes you sound as though you’re only willing to do the bare minimum required to keep getting a paycheck, which is a bad thing if you like job security. If your boss asks you to do something that you feel is inappropriate for your position (as opposed to morally or ethically inappropriate), the best move is to complete the task eagerly. Later, schedule a conversation with your boss to discuss your role in the company and whether your job description needs an update. This ensures that you avoid looking petty. It also enables you and your boss to develop a long-term understanding of what you should and shouldn’t be doing.
9. “It’s not my fault”
It’s never a good idea to cast blame. Be accountable. If you had any role—no matter how small—in whatever went wrong, own it. If not, offer an objective, dispassionate explanation of what happened. Stick to the facts, and let your boss and colleagues draw their own conclusions about who’s to blame. The moment you start pointing fingers is the moment people start seeing you as someone who lacks accountability for their actions. This makes people nervous. Some will avoid working with you nkgogether, and others will strike first and blame you when something goes wrong.

10. “I can’t”
I can’t is it’s not my fault’s twisted sister. People don’t like to hear I can’t because they think it means I won’t. Saying I can’t suggests that you’re not willing to do what it takes to get the job done. If you really can’t do something because you truly lack the necessary skills, you need to offer an nkgernative solution. Instead of saying what you can’t do, say what you can do. For example, instead of saying “I can’t stay late tonight,” say “I can come in early tomorrow morning. Will that work?” Instead of “I can’t run those numbers,” say “I don’t yet know how to run that type of analysis. Is there someone who can show me so that I can do it on my own next time?”

11. “I hate this job”
The last thing anyone wants to hear at work is someone complaining about how much they hate their job. Doing so labels you as a negative person and brings down the morale of the group. Bosses are quick to catch on to naysayers who drag down morale, and they know that there are always enthusiastic replacements waiting just around the corner. Bringing it all together Eliminating these phrases from your vocabulary pays dividends. They have a tendency to sneak up on you, so you’re going to have to catch yourself until you’ve solidified the habit of not saying them

7 Things Stress Does to Everybody, Without Exception

Stress is one of the biggest problems we have to deal with in modern life. It’s everywhere, and many don’t realize how much damage daily stress might be doing to them.

It’s all well and good to eat right, get enuogh sleep and exercise, but when it comes to mental hardship people will shrug it off, thinking it won’t have an impact on their health.
Here are 7 recent conclusions about stress you should know about:


Stress at work is bad for the body

A review of relevant research conducted last September, officially identified a strong connection between stress at work and a bigger likelihood to get a heart attack. The review, performed by researches of the College University of London, shows that there is a strong correlation between overworking and a 23% increased chance of a heart attack. Another research published this last year in the Journal for occupational medicine, found that stress at work can cause specific harm to women by increasing their chances of diabetes.

A Smile is Stress Medicine 

A real, honest smile, one that uses both the eye and mouth muscles, may help decrease the heart rate after a stressful even. So found research published in Psychological Science.
“Next time you are stuck in traffic or experience any other type of stress, you can try and put a smile on your face,” says the main researcher from the University of Kansas, Sarah Paseman. “Not only will it help you cope psychologically, it will actually contribute to the health of your heart.”

The link between stress and stressful situations

It turns out that not only can stress alone cause health problems, but even thinking about stress! This from research conducted at the University of Ohio. Researchers found that when a person is asked to think about a stressful event, the levels of C protein, a protein known to deal with inflammation, rise and may cause inflammation themselves.
Similarly, research published in the American Journal of Cardiology showed that a perception of stress can affect health quite significantly. Specifically, researchers from the medical center of Colombia University found that people who believe they are stressed have a higher chance of suffering heart conditions.

Chronic tension may increase the risk of diabetes among men

Being in a state of constant stress is linked to the risk of suffering diabetes among men. This from research published in Diabetic Medicine. Swedish researchers spent 35 years examining the link between ongoing stress at work or home to period pressures or a lack of stress altogether. They found that among those that reported ongoing stress, they had a 45% bigger chance of getting Type 2 diabetes. This in comparison to those who reported temporary stress or no stress at all. The study included 7000 men and took into account other risk factors, such as blood pressure, age and physical activity.

Meditation to increase awareness can be key
A study conducted by the University of California shows that ongoing practice of Mindfulness Meditation (meditation that focuses on the present) can significantly reduce the levels of the stress hormone (cortisol). Findings were published in the Journal of Health Psychology.


Another research, published in the PLos ONE Journal, found that work stress may, in fact, quicken the pace of aging. Researchers found a close link between work stress and short telemeters (the edges of chromosomes that are linked to a person’s aging process, the shorter – the shorter the life span usually). 

The millennium generation is the most stressed out generation 

The millennium is apparently the worst at dealing with stress. So says a large survey performed by the American Union of Psychologists and was published last August. The survey showed that people ages 18-33 experienced an average stress level of 5.4 (on a 1-10 scale) compared to an average national was 4.8.
According to researchers, the largest causes of stress since the millennium are job instability and work-related issues. It found that 39% of the millennium generation admitted that their levels of stress have gone up in the past year. Also, research shows that they experienced a lot more agitation, anger, anxiety and depression when compared to previous generations.

Stress causes Inflammation

Researchers from Carnegie University found that in the long range, stress can harm the ability of the body to resist inflammation, which increases the likelihood of suffering infections. The researchers believe that when a person is stressed, the cells of the immunity system cannot respond to hormone control, and so there is an increased risk of suffering inflammation, which promotes illnesses such as heart conditions, asthma and autoimmune diseases

She asked, ‘What’s on TV?’

I said, ‘Dust.’

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.

She said, ‘I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 100 in about 3 seconds.’

I bought her a weighing scale.
