IQ vs EQ vs SQ vs AQ

"According to Psychologists, there are four types of Intelligence:

1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
2) Emotional Quotient (EQ)
3) Social Quotient (SQ)
4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)
#IntelligenceQuotient (IQ): this is the measure of your level of comprehension. You need IQ to solve maths, memorize things, and recall lessons.
#EmotionalQuotient (EQ): this is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others, keep to time, be responsible, be honest, respect boundaries, be humble, genuine and considerate.

Read a lovely poem by Donna Ashworth and felt It to be #TooGoodNotToShare


I don’t have crow’s feet,
I have happy happy memories of laughing with friends until the tears flowed.
I don’t have frown lines,
I have the marks of my frustration and confusion, which I battled through, smiling in the end.

I am not going grey,
I have shimmering highlights of wisdom, dashed throughout my silver hair.
I don’t have scars,I have symbols of the strength I was able to find,when life got tough

I don’t have stretch marks,
I have the marks of growth & the marks of motherhood. My womanly evolution

I am not fat,I bear the evidence of a life filled with abundance,blessings &good times

लेटेस्ट पुणेरी किस्सा
जोशी : मी इथले टॉयलेट वापरू का?
नेने : हो, पण पैसे पडतील
जोशी : नाही पडणार, बसताना काळजी घेईन मी
पुणेकर : आहो, अजून बिस्किटे घ्या ना
पाहुणा : नको हो, आधीच मी ५ खाल्ली आहेत
पुणेकर : तशी तुम्ही ६ खाल्ली आहेत, पण आजून खा की, ईथे कोण मोजत बसलंय??
मुलगा : चाहूंगा मॆ तुझे सांज सवरे
मुलगी : आणि दुपारचे काय?
मुलगा : १ ते ४ विश्रांती. मी पुण्याचा आहे
भिकारी : साहेब खूप भूक लागली आहे. ५ रुपये द्या ना
पुणेकर : १०० रुपयाची नोट आहे ९५ रुपये सुट्टे आहेत का?

पुण्यातील एक खवचट म्हातारा एकदा दातांच्या डॉक्टरांकडे गेला. त्या खुर्चीत बसल्यावर डॉक्टरांनी त्यांना मोठा आ आ आ करायला सांगितले. कितीही मोठा केला तरी ते आजून मोठा करायला सांगायचे.
म्हातारा म्हणाला, “तोंडात बसून काढणार असाल तर ती पायातली चप्पल आधी काढा”

Came across this Nice collection of profound statements and felt it was #TooGoodNotToShare

Enjoy the read!!!

✅Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain, just pray for a better umbrella.
That is called #Attitude.
✅When flood comes, fish eat ants & when flood recedes, ants eat fish.
Only time matters.
Just hold on.
God gives #Opportunity to every one.
✅In a theatre when drama plays, you opt for front seats. When film is screened, you opt for rear seats.
Your position in life is only relative & #NotAbsolute.

✅For making soap, oil is required. But to clean oil, soap is required. This is the #IronyOfLife.

As @airindiain comes home to family @TataCompanies I was reminded of this brilliant advertising booklet that the airline used to give out to passengers when the world was normal, people could laugh at themselves & unlike today not take offence & outrage at the slightest imagined
insult or slight. Today these 2 booklets would have led to riots inside parliament & someone like even #JRDTata termed as anti-national, being asked to leave the country, heads would have rolled. But back then we were humans with the ability to laugh at the incongruous not idiots
I share the entire booklets in 2 series. This was called #FoolishlyYours & genius admen/ marketers like #BobbyKooka conceived this. The woke leftlib secular idiots would outrage at the plethora of racism while the equally idiotic right would do so on the insult to nationalism.

Some #WeekendBanter in the midst of the #BanNews about the travails of a #RetiredHusband .

I found it humorous and felt it was #TooGoodNotToShare .

Am sure you too will enjoy the read and find time to share with those you don’t want to deprive of some good humor 🤣
After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to WalMart.

Unfortunately, like most men; I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out.

Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse.
Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter, from the local WalMart:

Dear Mrs. Harris:

Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion, in our store.
We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to, ban both of you from the store.

I didn’t write this I it’s entirety & not sure who did - but WOW does it speak to my heart!

Worth a read & definitely #TooGoodNotToShare

Pl don’t wait to read it later!

Barely the day started & it's already six in the evening.

Barely arrived on Monday & it's already Friday.
Barely the month has started and is more than half over..

The year just began & one sixth is almost over

And already 30, 40, 50 or 60 years of our lives have passed

And we realize that we lost our parents, some friends & acquaintances

And we realize it's too late to go back.
So... Let's try, despite everything, to enjoy the remaining time...

Let's keep looking for activities that we like...

Let's put some color in our grey...

Let's smile at the little things in life that put balm in our hearts.

I read an #InterestingStory about a complaint regarding Vanilla Ice Cream that left #GeneralMotors puzzled and found it to be #TooGoodNotToShare

Moral of the story being ... “Never underestimate your Customers' Complaint, no matter how funny it might seem!”

Here we go ...
A complaint was received by the Pontiac Division of General Motors:

'This is the second time I have written to you, and I don't blame you for not answering me, because I sounded crazy, but it is a fact..
You see, every time I buy a vanilla ice-cream, when I start back from the store my car won't start. If I get any other kind of ice cream, the car starts just fine.

#SundayThoughts on #Leadership

One of the leadership traits that is often praised is the ability to lead from the front.

How relevant is this,especially in the context of empowering your colleagues, coaching your team, developing big leaders and to allow faster decision making
Why are leaders scared of letting their staff fail? The same is true for parenting as well. The constant fear of failure prevents leaders and most parents to “let go’, which unfortunately,may provide a temporary relief from a disaster but sets up employees & children for failure.
The challenge for leaders, especially as one moves from an individual contributor (operational) to a team leader (strategic) role is to be able to step back and let the second rung of leaders take over.

After a hectic week, it’s Time for some light banter ..

I had read this interesting piece some months ago and received it again yesterday. I felt this could be something that all #Lagosians and #Nigerians will love to read and hence the share ...
A young, well qualified Officer left the job in Lagos and emigrated to Canada for better prospects and applied for a salesman's job at Vancouver's premier downtown department store. It was the biggest store in the world: you could get anything there.
The boss asked him, "Have you ever been a salesman before?"

"Yes sir, I was a salesman in Nigeria
The boss liked him and said, "You can start tomorrow. Learn fast and do well."

The first working day was long and arduous for the young man, but he got through it.

I received Such a beautiful and felt it was #TooGoodNotToBeShared ...


I found it worth a read, atleast once if not multiple times..

"I was jogging this morning and I noticed a person about half a km ahead.
I could guess he was running a little slower than me and that made me feel good, I said to myself I will try catch up with him.

So I started running faster and faster. Every block, I was gaining on him a lot.
After just a few minutes I was only about 100 feet behind him, so I really picked up pace & pushed myself. I was determined to catch up with him.

Finally, I did it! I caught up & passed him. Inwardly I felt very good. "I beat him".

Of course, he didn't even know we were racing

I read the below analogy and really loved it!
#WhatsInYourCup ..
I found it #TooGoodNotToShare ..

You are holding a cup of #coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere.
Now think ...Why did you spill the coffee?

If your answer is “Because someone bumped into me!!!"

It’s the Wrong answer.

You actually spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been #tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea.
Whatever is inside the cup is what will spill out.

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen surely), whatever is inside you will come out.

It's very easy to fake it, until you get rattled.

✅Mentee (Me) - I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

Mentor (Mr) Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

✅Me - Why has life become complicated now?

Mr - Stop analyzing life... It makes it complicated. Just live it.

On my recent trip into remote Andhra, I took a fascination to the iconic traditional breakfast 'Dibbarotti'. The process is tedious but the taste is equally mind blowing! Finally managed to master it!

Here with the freshest Avakkai for the season! 😎🙆‍♂

#HappyWeekend 🙏
I must confess, traditional Andhra recipes are highly time consuming, very tedious and require a lot of patience, if they've to be done right without compromising on anything! Only someone with the luxury of time can afford them!🙆‍♂

Other southern cuisines come across as easy!

Ingredients: Full round Urad dal (Minapa gundlu), sona masuri rice, rock salt

1. wash and soak 1 cup Urad dal for 10 hours.
2. Wash 2 cups rice and dry it in shade on a cotton cloth.
3. Grind the soaked dal without adding any water and keep aside.

I called my driver this morning & asked, "how many years does a tyre stay before it expires"?

He looked at me like an alien from Mars, an expression that seemed to ask in awe, "does a tyre ever expire"?
Every tyre has an expiry date after which it is supposed to be replaced , lest it risks a blow-out!

The life span of a tyre from the date of manufacture is four years.

Now, how do you know the date a tyre was manufactured?

It is written on the tyre as four digits!
The first two digits represent the week, while the last two is the year of manufacture.

Please note that the four digits stand alone, not added to any alphabet. Some manufacturers place the asterics sign (*) before and after the four digits , while others simply encycle it.

It’s nice to be courteous and the best thing it doesn’t cost...
I list below Some #TooGoodNotToShare and #SimpleWaysToShowCourtesy AND DIGNITY..

1 In case you miss a call, drop a message as soon as possible if you're unable to call back
2 Pay back borrowed money as soon as possible no matter how little the amount is. Do not opt to clear your personal needs first at the cost of your lender's personal needs. IT'S BAD MANNERS!
Don't assume that they don't need it, and never make them ask you for it
3 Do not ask for a lift & make the person wait for you.Instead,position yourself at a convenient place so that they do not have to divert from their route
4 Turn volume down if watching video,playing music or playing game on your phone in a public place or better, use headphones

I liked paraprosdokians the very first time I heard of them.

1 Where there's a will, I want to be in it

2 The last thing I want to do is hurt you, BUT it's still on my list

5 We never really grow up.
WE only learn how to act in public.
