Dear Friends,

I do not know if it is relevant to share these thoughts on this forum as so far its been dedicated to pure professionalism.... to discuss the core issues. I also know I would sound a little boring as all of us would have read many inspirational quotes.

Still I would like to share some quotes as it seems many of us are holding ourselves back for one reason or the other.

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.

We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope... and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance


Friends, its not the walls made of cement and bricks that we are fighting about. Its about the dreams and emotions that we had ..involving our family, our children while we took the decision to buy our homes.

Just a handful of greedy people are playing with emotions of millions of home buyers like us so we must stand up to fight against these cheats and the system which does not allow a simple, honest person to even buy a home without getting cheated.

We all have the potential to make a difference. Be the change you want to see in the world today. Be proactive and make a difference. You can help someone in need or volunteer your time for a worthy cause. Be an encouragement to someone who’s in need of a friend.

I have recently joined this group but I really appreciate the work done by people who started this forum and have given us a platform to contribute towards this good work.

We all are busy and have official/personal responsibilities but please come out and share some time to do your bit so that all of us contribute a little rather than few of us struggling to manage things. Even one hour of your time a week can make a difference.

Regards,

Vineet

The Story of The Geese
When you see geese heading south for the winter flying along in the “V” formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way.

FactAs each bird flaps its wings, it creates an “uplift” for the bird immediately following it. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 % greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.

Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go through it alone. It quickly gets back into the formation to take advantage of the ‘lifting’ power of the bird in front of it.

LessonIf we have as much common sense as a goose, we will stay in formation and share information with those who are headed the way we want to go. We should be willing to accept their help and give our help to others. It is harder to do something alone than together!

Fact
When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into the formation. Another goose takes over and flies to the point position.

LessonIt is sensible to take turns to do the hard and demanding tasks. It pays to share leadership. As with geese, people are interdependent on each other’s skills, capabilities, and unique arrangements of gifts, talents, or resources.

FactThe geese flying in formation honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

LessonPeople who are part of a team and share a common direction as well as a sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily because they are traveling on the thrust of one another and lift each other up along the way.

We need to make sure our honking is encouraging - Words of support and inspiration help energize those on the front line, helping them to keep pace in spite of the day-to-day pressures and fatigue. In groups where there is encouragement, the production is much greater.

Fact
When a goose gets sick, wounded, or shot down, two other geese will drop out of formation with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection.

They stay with the fallen goose until it dies or is able to fly again. Then, they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their flock.

LessonIf we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by our colleagues and each other in difficult times as well as in good !

The next time you see a formation of geese, remember … It is a REWARD,
a CHALLENGE and a PRIVILEGE to be a CONTRIBUTING MEMBER of a team.


United We Stand Good Luck!
