I did something today I hate doing.I did something that I hoped I ll never have to make.
Yes. I made a resume for myself !!! I have no clue what I have written in those 2 pages.
I hope I really dont get screwed on what I wrote.

So,end of PS is in sight, and I have also started typing my end sem report !!!!
What would life me without 2 magic combinations in the keyboard "ctrl+C" and "Ctrl+V" !!!!
Anyways, to prove my point I am going to post a nice one that I found sitting in my inbox yesterday!!Shall post something after I finish off these reports and resumes.

Difference between Focus on Problems, and Focus on Solutions!!

When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (Ink won't flow down to the writing surface).In order to solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, in practically any surface including crystal and in a temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.
And what did Russians do.......................................?? The Russians used a Pencil!!!
One of the most memorable case studies I came across on Japanese management was the case of the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan's biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soap box that was empty.
Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason, one soap box went through the assembly line empty. Management asked its engineers to solve the problem. Post-haste, the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soap boxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty.

No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent whoopee amount to do so. But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem, did not get into complications of X-rays, etc but instead came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.

Moral of the story: KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) i.e. always look for simple solutions. Devise the simplest possible solution that solves the problem :-)
