Define Fear !

Back in 2013, October - I had written a blog related to Fear named:

Fear - Which type is considered to be greatest by human!

We all have a habit of setting goals in life and work toward achieving it. 

On lighter note – “depending on which age group we are in” sometime end of setting few more goals to achieve the earlier goals & life goes on…..

We always meet various people on our daily routine life; we talk and share good, not so good experiences, few inspire us, other we ignore & again life goes on….

Have we ever thought why not lets define our fear instead of our goals?

What? Isn’t it strange? 

Yes, it does sounds strange because majority of us might have never tried it so far…and surely have pulled ourselves back due to it and probably got into cycle of setting and re-setting goals.

Seneca the Younger (c. 4 BC – AD 65) who was famous Roman Stoic philosopher had rightly pointed out that:-

We suffer more often in imagination than in reality

His idea about fear setting has been rightly documented by Timothy "Tim" Ferriss in his self-help book as following

What if I …<<fear>>….?

Cost of Inaction (Financially – Emotionally- Physically)
6 month
1 year
3 year

It is really interesting and worth trying , in case you have monkey mind.

I would like to leave you with thought provoking quote by Jerzy Gregorek

Easy Choices, Hard Life!

Hard Choices, Easy life!!

Thank you!

Sadhguru : Adiyogi

2017 - During Maha Shivaratri day - 

Adiyogi Shiva statue is a 112-foot-tall (34 m) statue of Hindu deity Shiva located at Coimbatore in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

It was  designed  by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev and built by his ISHA foundation.

Adiyogi music must listen!

From this day, I started following him closely about his teaching and motivational speeches, he has delivered around the world.

Sharing one of his amazing teaching excerpt:-

One a certain day Bull & Pigeon were upon a field. Bull was grazing upon the grass and Pigeon was picking ticks off the bull -Partnership.

There was huge tree at the edge of the field. Pigeon very nostalgically looked up the tree and said 

'oh alas!' there was time in the past, when I could fly on the top of the tree but now there is not enough strength in my wings even to get on the first branch of the tree!

The bull said that's not an issue, eat a little bit of my dung everyday, within the fortnight you will get on the topmost branch of the tree.

Pigeon said "Come on ! What kind of rubbish is that?"

The bull said try and see, whole humanity is on it.

Very hesitantly, Pigeon started picking up the dung. Amazingly on very first day - Pigeon reached the very first branch of the tree and within fortnight it reached to the topmost branch of the tree.

Just  sitting on topmost branch of the tree and beginning to enjoy the scenery.

Old farmer who was 'rocking' on his rocking on his chair, saw a fat old pigeon on top of the tree, pulled out his shotgun & shoot the bird off.

Moral of the story:-
Many time even bullshit can get you to the top, but it never let you stay there!!

Lets Stop Preaching & Make an Effort towards Teaching!

(Less than 3 minutes read, why not give a try)

When you share your agony with anyone, one always end-up with advise or preaches about benefits of being self-motivated or Don't loose heart etc.


In-fact its not wrong advice but it certainly has something lacking.

Whats is that 'something' lacking then?

Well, its the aspect of 'teaching'  about how to remain self-motivated or bring back our concentration, which has been shaken with agony.

Simple example to put in real life context! [Success seeker and Failure avoid-er]

Parents always ask their children to concentrate in studies or any activity.

Right? Do you agree?

Well! But how many of us actually teach our children the art of concentration?

Have we ever realized that if our children, do not know how to concentrate, how they are going to do justice to our instruction?

Any guess on outcome?

This infuse the attitude of failure avoid-er  in children and in quest of doing things right at first attempt [without skill], always stops them from trying or even making a start.

Hence, as parents need to make effort to appreciate the failure of our children, which will allow them to be creative and explore unknown. Leave success be appreciated by outsiders. 

The following difference needs to be understood:-

I GOT to go to class ! [Its a sense of requirement, like alarm clock]

I GET to go to class ! [Its a sense of opportunity, like enthusiasm]

How you communicate to others?
How you communicate to yourself?

People miss out opportunity on regular basis due to bad frame of mind about simply not able to break the comfort zone.

One can always argue that what if we land up in more trouble due to constant deserting comfort zone?

Well! To keep it simple!

Do we not experience pain-agony-trouble even by being in comfort zone?

The closer answer could be that breaking comfort zone is a way toward excellence. Imagine any field of your choice, anyone who has not tested failure has not been able to do justice to success in long term.

Success is no accident, if one has got it by accident, Sustainability factor will not let one hang for longer unless there is absolutely right purpose.

We need to make a start from being independent to being inter-dependent to solve issues.

On lighter note:-

We always say our children (Age 3-5 yrs), Drink milk - This will make you smart & intelligent!

Child drinks milk daily!

Same child (Age 5-8 yrs.), when questions us on our instruction, we end up saying – Don’t act smart!

We all needs to take a step back – re-calibrate ourselves to match current time and future, So that we can assist next generation to be well-equipped to match challenges ahead.

You will always figure out a way, if you make your mind certain & convinced about it.

Rather than feeling bad about problem, Think what you can do about it?

Prospective matters. It is the base of creating perception ahead. But never shy away from breaking perception with better prospective. 

Believe me, it always helps. 

You have just got one life to achieve everything you wish for. So you have to act accordingly.

Thank you!

Docker : A tool which is silently creating revolution in 'DevOps' way!

 is a containerisation platform which package our application and all its dependencies together in form of containers to ensure that our application works seamlessly in any environment be it Development, Test or Production.

Docker is not just another stack in virtual machine (VM) concept. To relate containerisation is just virtualisation at the OS level. 
Taken from some online tutorial.
Why Docker?
Containers on same OS kernel are lighter & smaller.
Containerisation brings process level isolation.
Better resource Utilisation compared to VM.
Short Boot-up process (1/20th of a second).

VM Vs Docker at glance:-

Docker Engine
Communication happens between docker client & Docker Daemon by combination of REST API, Socket.IO and TCP.
source: Internet
Docker Terminology
Docker Daemon: 
      It run on host Machine.
     It creates and manages dockers object such as images, containers, Networks, Data, Volumes etc.
     User does not directly interact with the docker client.
Docker Client:
   Primary user interface to docker.
   It accepts commands from the users and communicates back and forth with dockers daemon.
Docker Images:
    Images are used to create docker containers.
    Dockers provides a simple way to build new images or update existing images,
    Docker images are the 'Build' component of dockers.
Docker Registries:
    Registries store images.
    These are public or private stored from which we upload/downloads images. 
    This can be done on docker hub (which is docker version of GITHUB)
   Docker Registry are 'distribution' component of docker.
Docker Containers:
    Containers are created from docker images.
    It holds everything needed for an application to run.
   Each containers is an isolated and secure application platform.
   Docker containers are the 'run' components of docker.

Docker Architecture:
It has following component: 
build---  pull  ---   distribute   ---  run

Handy Docker commands on the GO:

To pull a docker images from docker hub
       $ docker pull <image-name:tag>
To run an images
       $ docker run<image-name:tag>   OR 
      $ docker run <image-id>
To Build an image
       $ docker build -t <image-name>:tag
To run newly built image
 $ docker run --name "container name" -p <host-port>:<container-port><image-name:tag>
To list down images on our system
       $ docker images
To list down all the running containers
       $ docker ps
To list down all the containers (even if they are not running)
       $ docker ps -a
To start the containers
       $ docker start <container id>
To stop the container
       $ docker stop <container id>
To delete the container [This command should be used after container is stopped]
       $ docker rm <container name>
To delete image
       $ docker rmi <image id>  OR
       $ docker rmi <repo:tag>

The blog has been written after reading and watching online materials on dockers.

Thank you!

Changing Mindset!!

Among several other tough tasks, one of 'changing mindset' either "of self" or "of other" as whole sounds to be the toughest one!!

Don't roll your eyes (~ ~) Dear!!

Give yourself 30 seconds, to take a fresh approach to it.

So, what’s your verdict?  If you really happen to give a thought, please do put that (word/line) in comments :-)

Let’s look at one aspect i.e. YES,

Why Yes?

Changing Mindset takes generation to stabilise and by the time it stabilises itself, generation itself has moved & evolved, which again generate an urge to change mindset.

Since human-beings have not been blessed with equals share of intelligence, wisdom and surely not the GREED. This natural cycle leads to formation of 3 broad groups.

1st Group: - Those whose mindset stabilised bit earlier than the realisation of generation has moved as whole, enjoys the fruit of that era and termed as successful.

However other two groups i.e. ['about to stabilised' as 2nd Group and not gonna stabilised’ as 3rd Group].
One of these two remaining group take leads in changing mindset as soon as generation moved realisation materialised.

Again, as I pointed out earlier that 'changing mindset' is toughest, So following is reasons why it is so...

When 3rd Group leads in second race of change cycle, though which was even nowhere closed in first change cycle shift is forcefully obstructed-demonised-ridiculed-etc. by the 1st Group.

Are you Surprised!! Confused!! That why 1st Group will ever do this?

Simple reason that 1st Group were termed successful and had uninterrupted access to world resources for so long. They freely indulge in enjoying those resources with sweet lip service to less privileged and somewhere the sense of supremacy occupied in their mind, which lead them to believe that they can control change.

Let’s look at few recent happening around world to put in context: -

Election is a mode to elect government in countries following democracy. Why election results sound or sold to us as surprising these days?

This is directly linked to 1st Group orchestrated chaos to control change.

How come election of A or B should termed as surprise if the criteria for selection remains the same since decades.

All this points to the beginning of arrival of change cycle......Change always tames bad weed.

Why 3rd Group right to equal chance to prove their metal to people by people for people should be denied? Or insulted in way it is being done by handful of loser from 1st Group?

Readers do think over it! Change is constant. Everyone should accept it with same honour and respect above all belief whether it suits you or not.

1st Group deserve no sympathy; let them DEAL WITH IT.

By the way:- just to add 2nd Group of people are termed as Middle Class in 21st Century. They are enablers but surely never an obstructor.

 Few picture for lighter moment after a quality read.

Have you put what your thought related to verdict in comments? 

No? Well that's how tough it is to change mindset for self or of other!!!
