Theism exists as long as hope stirs souls. If there is a science that prevails across all scepticism, it is the science of hope.

The Best Manager is that hope. A leader who symbolises the epicentre for the institution is a beacon of an unwavering protagonist in the movie, that is the corporate world. Being resolute in finances, uncanny and creative in marketing, shrewd and calculative in operations and perceptive and intuitive as a recruiter, the best manager is the powerhouse who knows it all. Do you have soul to become hope? Do you have the power to shine through all the dark clouds and be the providence?

Under the immense pressure of intense competition, the one who rises beyond the boundaries defined is the one who gains!

The journey to the pinnacle is difficult. Let’s unravel what makes you impeccable.

The capacity to introspect and the ability to recognize oneself as an individual separate from the environment and other individuals is of paramount importance today. While consciousness is being aware of one one’s environment and body, self-awareness is the recognition of that awareness.

There exists an eternal trade-off between time and money. The best managers know how to balance this conundrum and manipulate the two aspects in such a way that they start to complement each other. Money is your timesaver in order to reach the pinnacle of success. New enterprises, changing government polices and ever evolving markets make the financial world a deadly maze.

What if time wasn’t only an exhaustible commodity but also an astral presence with a mind and soul of its own? Time is an entity which has the tendency to challenge people and their capabilities.

It is believed that time has its own unique way of rewarding bold financial decisions. Are you content with losing small or are you willing to risk it all to win big? Do you have what it makes to pass the test of time?

It’s time to take risks and find yourself!

“People are not your most important asset. The right people at the right time at the right place are.”

Gone are those days when the human resources department and public relations department exclusively handled internal and external communication. As integration takes further hold in modern culture, companies must consider the back-stage and front-stage employees as key players in the grand scheme of things. To stand out in this dynamic world, both departments must work closely with their top management to emerge as the custodian of corporate brand reputation.

In the ever-changing perceptions of the world, the manager has to use his presence of mind to strike the right chords at the right time with the right people. The right Kind of communication can not only build brand presence, but also sustain visibility. The challenge is to break away from the pre-conceived ethos prevailing in the corporate world and not get sucked into the wormhole of conventional strategies of communication.

Hence, one needs think on this feet and steer clear from the prevalent perceptions to battle out this war across dimensions.

Are you ready to unwind your perceptions?

If a plan does not work, change the plan not the goal.

A business plan is a roadmap for an idea to become an innovation. The journey will test your forbearance, tenacity and zeal for nothing is achieved without diligence. At every step, you will be enticed to take the facile foot forward. It is at your discretion to put it or not. Ideas pull the trigger but fortitude and courage loads the gun. It’s time to shoot your thoughts and plans or else time will be bygone.

Choose wisely the path you take or have the courage to build your own path. Given the time, think carefully before you act, because one wrong manoeuvre could leave an incredible mark on your record, but no manoeuvre at all could lead to permanently lost opportunities.

Do you dare to compete with time?

“Can you hear me? Do you know where you are? Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?

Now you are looking for the secret. But you won’t find it because of course, you‘re not really looking. You don’t really want to work it out. You want to be fooled. “There is no greater illusion than the concept of time. It feels real, always there, inexorably moving forward. Time has flow, runs like a river. Time has velocity, always advance. Time has order, one thing after another. Time has duration, a quantifiable period between events. Time has a privileged present, only now is real. The only way to get rid of this illusion is to actually embrace it.

Most people are unworthy of this opportunity; Most people just exist and not really live, but not you. You have appreciated time. You have lived so many lives through so many characters. You were there in Westeros, Central Perk, in The Upside Down, in The Westworld, at 221B Baker Street.

You might have been any of them – The One Who Knocks, The Best Closer In NY, The Stealer Of The Blue French Horn, The One Who Loves Freddy’s BBQ Ribs, maybe you were all of them or maybe you are simply No One.

The past is already written. The ink is dry. Now, it is up to you to shape the future. Learn from the mistakes of their past, get inspired from their success, absorb their personality, let it influence you. Be audacious enough to make decisions that others weren’t courageous enough to make, but do not get your hopes high.

If you think this has a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention!
