Chicken Little of Stock Markets

“The sky is falling… ” screamed the Chicken Little as he dashed hysterically…and all the animals followed the suit until an wise one stopped them and asked them to allow him to investigate…and everyone found that mistaking the sound of a falling nut the little chicken thought the sky is falling…the Chicken Little got blamed but what about other who followed the suite making a small ruse a larger one…

This is what Chicken Little’s of stock market do… If a Enron falls the entire stock Market falls.

The same people who ran to get a piece of Enron Bull… Found a Chicken Little in Enron to blame…

It takes a wise-bold decision to step aside and look into the matter rationally.

And with stock market which is different than animal kingdom…usually the wise one will be the one getting blamed for asking to step aside and think…

So most of the time this is personal decision and one is responsible for one’s own decisions…

Reading: Hooked – Takeaway 1

Takeaways from the Introduction.

  1. Habits are defined as “behaviors done with little or no conscious thought.”
  2. The convergence of access, data and speed is making the world a more habit-forming place.
  3. Businesses that create customer habits gain a significant competitive advantage.
  4. The Hook Model describes an experience designed to connect the user’s problem to a solution frequently enough to form an habit.
  5. The Hook Modal has four phases: trigger, action, variable reward and investment.

That complete the first takeaway.

Suspicious Tortoise

A family of tortoise went on a picnic. They packed food and set out to a place they had selected… behind the hills. When they reached the spot, they unpacked their picnic basket. They realized they had forgotten to bring salt. Food without salt is tasteless. They had a conference to decide who should go back and get salt. After a lot of discussion, the youngest tortoise was chosen, as he was faster than the others. The youngest objected on the ground that before he could come back the others might eat the snacks. But they assured him they would wait for him to come back with salt.

Six months passed, but the youngest tortoise did not turn up. So the rest of the family decided to open the basket and eat the snacks. When they opened the snack basket, the little tortoise jumped out of the bushes and screamed, “Look, I knew you would not wait till I came back. For six months I have been hiding in these bushes to make sure you would not eat without me. Now my suspicion has been confirmed, and I am not going to get the salt.”

Moral: Some of us are exactly like our suspicious tortoise: we waste our own time waiting for others to live according to our expectations or act in ways we expect them to. Instead, we should spend our valuable time doing the right thing ourselves

How to win a street fight?

There once was a famous swordsman in Japan. One time, he was sleeping on a boat crossing a river, when a drunken brute was harassing the other passengers. The swordsman asked the brute to quiet down so he could sleep. The brute took insult to that and demanded a duel to the death. The swordsman agreed, but insisted on doing on an island close by so as not to damage the boat and hurt the people on board. The boat pulled up, and the brute jumped off immediately, eager to begin the fight.

The swordsman then quickly signaled the captain of the boat to speed away, leaving the brute stranded on the island by himself.

That’s how you win a street fight.

By doing it the smart way.

Over and Over

Once a wise man held a seminar to teach people how to get rid of sorrows in their life. Many people gathered to hear the wise man’s words. The man entered the room and told a very funny joke to the crowd. The crowd roared in laughter.

After a couple of minutes he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled.

When he told the same joke for the third time no one laughed anymore.

The wise man smiled and said,” You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why do you cry over the same problem over and over?”

Parental tip…..👍

Always snatch and eat one third of your child’s chocolate and ice cream.
Let them cry…. doesn’t matter…..

This will prepare them to pay Income Tax when they grow up…😜😬

Curious case of missing Goat 🐐

It all started one lazy Sunday afternoon in a small town near Toronto in Canada.
Two school-going friends had a crazy idea. They rounded up three goats from the neighborhood and painted the numbers 1, 2 and 4 on their sides. That night they let the goats loose inside their school building. The next morning, when the authorities entered the school, they could smell something was wrong. They soon saw goat droppings on the stairs and near the entrance and realized that some goats had entered the building. A search was immediately launched and very soon, the three goats were found. But the authorities were worried, where was goat No. 3? They spent the rest of the day looking for goat No.3. The school declared classes off for the students for the rest of the day. The teachers, helpers, guards, canteen staffs, boys were all busy looking for the goat No. 3, which, of course, was never found. Simply because ………… it did not exist.

*Those among us who, in spite of having a good life are always feeling a “lack of fulfillment” are actually looking for the elusive, missing, non-existent goat No.3. Whatever the area of complaint or dissatisfaction, relationship, job-satisfaction, finance, achievements, …… *An absence of something is always larger than the presence of many other things*

Let’s Stop worrying about goat No.3 enjoy life !!! 😀Please share this small story to inspire and brighten someone’s day.🌞✨✨

Humor: What can Root Cause Analysis Lead To…

Is there something called “Root Cause Analysis” ??

A Management lecturer was talking about “Quality”.

Lecturer : We all know Lord Ram went to spend 14 years in forest and Sita was kidnapped because of a “quality issue”.

Student : How is this anything to do with quality?

Lecturer : Tell me why did Sita go to forest with Ram ?

Student : Because she was his wife and respected his every decision.

Lecturer : OK but why did Ram go to forest ?

Student : Because his father Dasharatha told him to do so and he never disobeyed his father.

Lecturer : OK why did Dasharatha send his son to forest ?

Student : Dasharatha offered his wife (Kaikeyi) two boons , and she chose to make use of them in the future.

And she wanted her son to be king, so on the day of Rama’s crowning,

she asked Dasharatha to send Rama to forest and crown her son; reminding him of his promised boons.

Lecturer : So why did Dasharatha offer his wife two boons ?

Student : Because during a military campaign against Sambarasura, the wheel of Dasharatha’s chariot broke and and kakiye inserted her finger to hold the wheel in place.

Touched by her courage and timely service, Dasharatha offered her two boons.

Lecturer: Hence Proved. The quality of Chariot’s wheel was not up to the mark .. leading to kidnapping of Sita…!!!!

[So, using the “5 why” technique we see that Quality is very important and if the quality of Chariot’s wheel was good, the Ramayana wouldn’t have happened!]
