Get things done and get them done soon. I seem to achieve the most when I create a list at the beginning of the day and seem to stick to that list.

Once you are hooked onto sticking to your list, next thing to focus is what goes on that list. Keep the things that matter the most on top of that list and you will be 50% set.

Father’s day mean that I miss my Dad the same as I do everyday but with a more intense regret that I wished I had told him more often how much I loved him and what he meant to me. He was and is my hero.

Father’s day mean that I am immensely proud of my children and thank God from the bottom of my heart for this privilege.

Father’s day is also an opportunity for me to stop and think of what kind of father I want to be to my children.

Father’s day is an opportunity to stop and show gratitude to billions of parents out there and say THANK YOU!

And ofcourse being pampered and loved by my children is priceless.

Today as the World mourns the death of Robin Williams, I am sad and feeling the loss. If the rumours are right about him committing suicide, it makes me angry that a great actor and a human being decided to leave the battle field and gave up.

While I was still digesting the news about Robin Williams, I got the news about a friend, an elder brother, a person whom I respected, passed away overseas. He was my childhood hero, a handsome, intelligent, witty, confident chap. I always had high regards for him and as a kid watched him climbing the success ladder swiftly. This individual had the power to move a mountain and his influence hard to resist. A charismatic leader he was. He achieved success in everything he did, including bad choices that he decided to embrace. I am feeling sick, not only because I lost a friend, a brother from my extended family but because I witnessed how choices made this larger than life person to give up on his life.
His liver stopped functioning and he spend the last weeks of his life in a hospital bed rather than his own palace. I will never know what got to this ambitious man that he gave up on his life and drowned himself in liquor. He leaves us wondering about a lot of “what ifs..” today. He  left us wondering what all he could have been if not for his choices. Choices he had the power to make but could not accurately evaluate the results of those choices. The choices which costed him his life, the trauma his family will suffer for the remaining part of their lives. The cost his family and friends will pay for a long long time to come.
RIP big brother and Robin Williams.

That’s what I hear from a lot of friends and acquaintances who either use Apple devices or never want to use one or then some who have never have used one and seem to know all the good reasons why Apple is evil. I got to hear this three times in the last 24 hours because the so called experts read somewhere on the Internet that Apple’s iPad sales fell down. So all those people here’s some reasoning if you like to think rationally,


So let’s put these pieces of the puzzle together. Consumers are more likely to upgrade a phone on a faster cycle than they would a tablet. Tablets are generally more expensive than phones, particularly when you still have phone subsidies in place. Bigger phones are on the rise and these can reduce tablet demand. There are also credible tablet choices that cost less. Add it up and you get slower growth of iPad sales.

One more thing (see what I did there?) in terms of iPad adoption. Given that the iPad isn’t a necessity and that it did grow sales quickly early on, perhaps most of the people who have the disposable income to buy an iPad have already done so. On the company’s investor call Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook noted that in the U.S. and Western Europe, overall tablet sales — not just that of the iPad — are soft, down about 5 percent this past quarter.

I read this tweet:

If you follow the tech scene, it just put things into perspective as to how much revenue Apple is earning and how much cash reserves it can afford. It’s silly but what if Apple was allowed to buy a country and all the residents of the country agreed? Apple may just convert the country into a design heaven!

At the least, try to find somebody who gets your idea and have skills to execute better than anyone you know.
