Bill Gates Rules

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school
He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1
Life is not fair – get used to it!
Rule 2
The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3
You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4
If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5
Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 6
If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7
Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8
Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9
Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.
Rule 10
Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11
Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.

Speech given by Chetan Bhagat at Symbiosis

Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same with life, where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die.

One thing about nurturing the spark – don’t take life seriously. Life is not to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up? It’s ok, bunk a few classes, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, fall in love. We are people, not programmed devices.

"Don’t be serious, be sincere." !

Business school :last semester: first day

Yesterday was my first day in class for the final semester at college. Well college started almost a week back but had told my friends that would start attending from this week. Monday no classes so the deal was to attend from tuesday. That was a non starter cuz the other guys didnt want to go and all. I told my friend that this semester will be regular for classes. She laughed sayin that she had a great laugh at that πŸ™‚

well as usual i got to class at 8.15 almost 2 hrs late, same time i came in class whole of last term πŸ™‚ thats an improvement right. A mins down i just didnt want to be there. Bored or tired i didnt know but my mind was just closed to everything the prof was sayin. I was messaging friends etc etc. Was also first to tell her enough for today. It actually was i lil embarrassin cuz i had entered class like wot 48 mins earlier. The icing was when she left us but said next class she will start at 6.30 i agreed πŸ™‚ my classmate smiled at that. I never make it at that time and i agree to start πŸ™‚

end was funnier. Its a combined class with another but those guys put proxies in the first class. What a bunch of whatever.:) who does that in the first class.

Small is good

Mantra from now onwards. Small is good for life.

but i dont agree ‘evolution and not revolution are sustainable ‘

what do you think. Comment away.

Fallin back

Its not been a good week so far. Nothing bad has happenened but have been putting things on the back burner since monday. Its not a good thing and i sure know that. But somehow i break down on my will power right at that moment. And then just as usual put everything on the tomorrow’s list. Thus ensuring i get screwed every other time.

got 3 days going for the zero email box now for the end of this week.

Confusion confounded

I was on the verge of solvin my problem of confusion abt a part of my life. Ok not that close. Guess this confusion is cuz of some decisions i didnt take when i should have.

anyways got thrown back to square one when i went to a weddin. πŸ™‚
