Always Daddy's Girl!

2:54 PM

My Daddy Best-est! *Touchwood*
I am most definitely biased because he is my father. Nonetheless, I have no hesitation in acknowledging where the praise is due. My father is a mobile-encyclopedia on work-ethics and life. He is the most positive and alive person anyone would ever meet (guaranteed!). He has been probing me to write a book on his life (a.k.a. his biography) for years now. After working with him closely, for only two weeks, I am thinking - Book to banti hai, yaar! (Book is a must!) 

I have learnt from my father how to deal with people, how to handle them, when to be (or not be) aggressive and firm, how to keep an open mind and take life as it comes, 'in the real sense'! What I am taking away from him this time is how to be professional and maintain your sophistication and calm no matter what!

No one is perfect and we are most certainly not discussing perfection here either. However, if for the majortiy of his life, a person is efficient-> commercially and appropriate-> personally, in my opinion, he is as close as you can get to perfection in today's world. As a daughter, life always seems easier and happier around him :o)

Some of the 'Commerial (Pearls of) Wisdom', I was able to pen-down while working with my Father, are as follows:

Lesson 1 - Daily Working + Uncertainity = Business

Lesson 2 - Life (work, included!) is a constant journey of improvement! Every day think you'll get closer to perfection, tomorrow...

Lesson 3 - Growth or Failure, you as a person should never change. Maintain consistent behavior!

Lesson 4 - Experience is important but not more than Result (oriented)!

Lesson 5 - Success in Business is measured by Goodwill first and Monetary Value second!

Professional Outfits in this week

While I am extremely experimental in my casual/social wear, I am relatively conservative in my professional clothing. I prefer subtle colors, mostly trousers, and probably the only exciting part is the shirts/tops! I call is it the 'no-non-sense-dressing'. While at work I prefer to be comfortable and not have to bother about clothes. Therefore, I prefer simple straight cuts, loose fittings, and least time consuming ensemble. Belts, Shoes and waist-coats are optional but preferable, always! 

P.S. Although it's my Mother's birthday today I decided to write about my Dad 'coz this time it was all about him! Nonetheless, none of us (me, Dad or Brother) would get anywhere without her. Happy Happy Birthday Mom!

P.P.S. Also, Haaaaapppppyyyyyy Birrrrtttthhhhhday to the micro-blogger of this Blog - Anita! You are my Rock, babes! Life is wonderful because you are my friend :o) May you live a million years!
