3 Day, 3 Quote Challenge: Day 3

Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.

– G. B. Stern

I have never celebrated Thanksgiving in my life, so I actually had to look the day up on Google to see when it was this year. The trigger was the many Thanksgiving posts I read on the Reader just a few minutes back. Happy belated Thanksgiving to you all!

Today is the last quote in the 3D3Q Challenge, and this quote means a lot to me given the circumstances I am in. These days, a lot of focus is on team work, especially in the corporate sector. If you are not a team player, you won’t be successful in the long term. An important element in building team spirit is appreciation. A simple thank you when your team mate backs you in front of your superior will go a long way to make that person feel better. And that positivity will bring a smile on both of your faces.

So, if you feel that there is someone that you should have thanked, go ahead and do it today. Being silent about it isn’t much good to anyone.

Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge: Day 1

A big thanks to my friend, Annie, at What the Woman Wrote for nominating me for this challenge. I had been away from the blogosphere for some time now. No prizes for guessing work life has been a little too overwhelming. As I write this, there are ten other things on my to-do list, of various priorities, but I believe I shouldn’t be away from something I love doing for too long.

So, I am indeed thankful to Annie for giving me a reason to start blogging again. Let me share the rules of the challenge with you all:

(1) Thank the person who nominated you

(2) Select one quote per day for the next three days and write a little something on it

(3) nominate three other bloggers for the challenge today

The quote for the day from my end is:

“If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.”

Albert Einstein

This quote is displayed at various corners in my workplace (Mu Sigma Inc.). My job description requires me to solve problems for clients on a day to day basis. And the above quote is something that the data sciences industry (and many others) lives by. Unless you know the problem in and out, you can never come up with the most efficient solution that you are capable of providing.
What do you think? Was there a time when you had to think about a problem longer than it took you to execute the plans that led to its solutions? Share with me in the Comments below.
I would cheat a little here, and break the third rule of the Three Day Quote Challenge. I am not nominating any three particular persons for this challenge. If you are reading this, and this challenge interests you, nominate yourself from my end for the challenge.
Until later, keep typing!
Cheers,
Arpita

 

 

Day Three of Three-Day Quote Challenge

Yay! I am in the final leg of The Three-Day Quote Challenge. I was nominated for it by Debolina. A big thanks again to her for the nomination. I totally enjoyed doing this!

Today it is my turn to nominate three other wonderful bloggers. But before that here’s my final quote of the challenge:

Quote for Day 3 of 3-Day Quote Challenge

Quote for Day 3 of 3-Day Quote Challenge

Ever tried to have someone in your life who was hell bent to leave? What was the process of forgetting that person like? Is it only Time that heals wounds or does the Distance between you and the perpetrator of hurt count too? For the narrator of the story Elusive ( from Bound by Life, my first Kindle ebook), distance worked positively and helped him to forget his childhood ladylove.

But is the world so big that we can just forget and move on? To find out, you have to read Bound by Life. You can download the book here.

Day Two of Three-Day Quote Challenge

Good day, bloggers!

I am onto the second day of the Three-Day Quote Challenge.

Yesterday having been friendship day, I decided to carry on the spirit with my favourite quote by APJ Abdul Kalam. He was the president of India as well as one of the leading men in the Indian Space Research program. More than that, he will perhaps be remembered as being one of the greatest teachers who inspired thousands of students across the country. Mr. Kalam died 27th July, 2015. Rest in peace, sir!

Enjoy this quote and make some friendships,  people!

Day One of Three-Day Quote Challenge

Good day bloggers all over the world!

Usually, I blog on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I will make an exception today as I have been nominated by the wonderful Debolina for the three-day quote challenge. Yay! Thank you so much, Debolina, for the nomination. Debolina has previously contributed a guest post for this blog – a review of Little Women as part of Saturday Specials in July. Be sure to check it out!

As a part of the 3-Day quote challenge, I will publish one quote each for three consecutive days. On the third day, I will nominate three other bloggers for the same who will then continue the challenge. The quotes may be taken from a book, a movie or anywhere else. It can even be your own creation.

My quote for today is taken from the first story of my book Bound by Life. The protagonist of this story (The Silent Victim), Deepa, was a victim of molestation as a child and grew up struggling with androphobia. These lines are her realization:

Quote for Day 1 of 3-Day Quote Challenge

Deepa is one of the strongest characters of my first book. I am immensely proud of her and where she reaches by the end of the story. If you’re interested in her story, don’t forget to buy my book on Amazon.

Keep blogging and have a great weekend!

Best,
