In the last few days I've cancelled 3 of my 4 mobile numbers. Instead of 3 odd handsets, I am down to one. I've also closed 3 bank accounts which were opened at various workplaces and which were lying idle.
A few days back, just as I was about to get into my car outside a shopping complex, a mother and daughter approached me out of nowhere.
Before I utter or make sense of anything the mother hands me a box of strawberries in a flash and says, "We want nothing. She (her daughter) saw you and felt like you are a brotherly figure for her. We want nothing. Just keep this. We are starting a new business and we want you to keep this."
That word and her forcefulness primed me. It just triggered an emotional response to induce a rather strange and rapid buy! The location - parking lot - helped in hurrying through the transaction as well!
I've ended that experiment for now. My shoulders started paining. I realized, something's still not sorted.
I think it's the position of my neck when I try to look at the laptop screen. That doesn't seem right. I can sense that if my neck doesn't have to bend at all and the screen is right in front, my 'standing while working' experiment might bear fruit.
I tried searching for a computer system with a laptop-like keyboard but couldn't find one. I searched for a laptop with detachable screen and found that Lenovo has just launched one. But the thing is that the screen becomes a tablet once detached; I presume then that the keyboard gets inactive. What I simply want is a laptop like key-board with a screen that can be placed/hung on the wall to keep my neck straight while 'working while standing'. :)
Just before the search, I thought it could be an opportunity to launch such a product - keyboard of a laptop with a detached screen. Like always I w…
Nature is inert and Earth is a chemical mixture. Human beings seem to have played around with this mixture to an extent that the composition has changed and the imbalance is now playing out; the mixture is far more volatile.
Some other time, eons back, there was a change in the mixture and chemical compounds shaped in a manner that it gave rise to consciousness. On the scale of time counted in billions of years, the effect of that change in the mixture, which gave rise to consciousness, is being felt now by that very consciousness.
Observe the picture carefully. Got that? Kansara Bindery. The Thesis Binding Specialist. It's a rare occasion to find a Bindery. And a shop which proclaims specialization in thesis binding.
And their website?
Just think about the choice of positioning and the words applied to reinforce that positioning. Thesis? The culmination of long hard research, always considered precious work and meant to be preserved for long. PhD? Similar in spirit to Thesis.
Didn't capture the interiors of the shop but they were as neat as you can think of.
If I have to go by whatever I'm observing in my interactions with different people, it is just a visual object. Just a symbol that you like and therefore try to attach it to yourself or to the brand name or to some other object like a building.
How would it be if it is seen as a representation of all that you stand for?
How can this idea 'representation of all that you stand for' be made explainable to the kind of entrepreneurs that I am interacting with? In fact addressing this question is a bigger idea than the idea 'representation of all that you stand for'. Isn't it? Why do you think, if you've got the idea, they haven't got it yet!
