Check Where You Stand In The Global Rich List ?

Everyone wants to be rich. Money is a cruel thing - it's not everything, yet it is an obvious necessity. As the American business man Mark Cuban says -

Being rich is a good thing. Not just in the obvious sense of benefiting you and your family, but in the broader sense. Profits are not a zero sum game. The more you make, the more of a financial impact you can have."
We have many lists like Top 100 richest people of the world or the top 10 riches people of your country. We all know Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Lakshmi Mittal and the Ambanis that top these lists year by year.

However, have you ever wondered where you stand in the world's rich list ? Well just head over to GlobalRichList and check where you stand in the list.

Disconnect to Connect

For the past couple of days I have been reading on Productivity Tips. Have been scouring various blogs on the same.

One thing that has caught my fancy is Digital Detox. To stay away from all kinds of Electronic Connecting Devices, especially Smart Phone.

I am constantly connected to the Internet via my iPhone. Even while working on stuff that doesn't require me to be connected to the Internet, I keep my WiFi on. And this in turn compels me to check my email or browse unnecessary stuff on the Internet.

This disrupts my thinking process or my work.

Although I love being connected to my friends and family members over Whatsapp and other social networks, I don't want it to be a habit where I check my phone even if there are no new notifications.

Tip: Stay Focused with this little Google Chrome Extension

So here's my plan to Disconnect and be more Productive:
Use Whatsapp sparingly. No forwarding of that joke that you found funny or no unnecessary chit-chat.Put your email in Fet…

34 things I learned from The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch

Assume that you're on the verge of dying. You've probably a few months to live. You're suffering from some notorious form of cancer wherein you've very less hope of surviving.
And then you think that you've very less time for all the things you wanted to do, for all the things you wanted to say to your loved ones, to your children and to the world.
How would you want your children to remember you? Of what you thought about them? Your feelings for them?
A few days ago I read the book - The last lecture by Randy Pausch. Randy was a professor at Carnegie Melon University and the book and the lecture is about achieving your childhood dreams. But more than that, I found the book as a good resource on parenting.
Here are a few points that I found worth sharing:
1. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured.

Online Courses

I love the idea of sharing knowledge. Off lately, I have seen much action in the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course). With the proliferation of the Internet amongst the masses, this knowledge sharing helps many students to get access to one of the finest courses and teachers from best universities in the world. Be it Harvard, Michigan, Stanford or our very own IITs - all these universities have started sharing their courses in an online format over the Internet.


The best thing about these online courses is that the student gets an open forum to discuss the things that they have learned in the courses. Also with the use of various tools, students can submit their assignments online and the teacher can grade the students.

Some of the websites that provide great learning resources are :
