Systematic V/s. Non Systematic

Posted by Ashish Bavishi on October 23, 2012

There are many sales people, go for sales without prior homework. They simply “Go Out”. No plan, no estimate on putting efforts, no predictable outcome and no more research on the client. They simply GO. This method is successful in some direct marketing strategy. Yet not observed widely successful in the general.

This is like the fight between Systematic V/s. Non Systematic. Difference between Trained and Untrained. Disciplined v/s Undisciplined.

Non Systematic Sales could get some Fly by orders. Which makes the sales person a believer in the Non Systematic Sales process. And it also influences his peers. But they have very limited life cycle. They are not for ever.

Gradually the performance goes down and the person in under stress of sales. And the employer too…

A small team of Systematic Sales persons is more effective than pack of ruthless Go Getters.

Fakebook or Facebook ?

Posted by Ashish Bavishi on October 9, 2012

Today I saw the below stats from net. I don’t know about its authenticity and shared with some of my family members.

Fakebook or Facebook

Within few mins of the mail, I recd the below mail from my uncle. I want to preserve and share some excerpts here…

Dear Asu et al,

You have done a family service by forwarding this. FB is extremely addictive and I think we have a lot more to lose than to gain. I think even in the ‘actual people’ mentioned in your breakdown, most are virtual – not representing their true personality / status / interest. They merely reflect pseudo character which they rather would want to show to others. There are vultures out there hitting on vulnerable teens and married women seeking emotional support.

Internet these days is addictive and time consuming. Only 1 out of 20 e-mails I receive is of real importance or use. Even goggling has plenty of problems of ‘problem of plenty’. I have to go in 20 sites to find my information.

The biggest advantage I see is that it has brought my family in US, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Canada, UK to communicate more often and has brought us all closer. The rest is mostly a waste of time.

I liked my life before TV, computers, mobiles and video games. I feel I used to actually communicate.

Love to all.

Amber Bavishi

Theory of Karma

Posted by Ashish Bavishi on October 9, 2012

Before long long ago, I read the book called “Theory of Karma” by Shri Hirabhai Thakkar. The book was in Gujarati Language and pretty simple. The explanations were also simple and with few examples. I read the book many times then.

Recently, while talking to someone I quoted some part of the book with Satvik, Rajsik and Tamsi types of people. I realised even after years I not forgotten the crux of the book. It seems it has been part of our lives.

The book is now available online in the same manner it was on print.

Not Yet Quitting Time – By Steve Goodier (Life Support System)

Posted by Ashish Bavishi on October 8, 2012

Newspapers once reported about a young Taiwanese man who wrote 700 love letters to his girlfriend over two years. That’s a letter almost every day. And I’m not talking about e-mail. Seven hundred hand-written letters that included folding, licking, stamping, addressing and sending. Seven hundred letters that proclaimed his feelings toward her. Many that even tried to persuade her to accept his marriage proposal.

Two years of correspondence finally got results. She announced her engagement…to the postal worker who delivered all those letters. Of course, it makes sense. She saw HIM every day. Maybe it was lucky for the mail carrier that her boyfriend didn’t give up too soon.

There may be a time to give up, and her boyfriend might have missed some good opportunities to step out of his apparently one-sided relationship. Sometimes it just makes sense to quit trying and move on to something else. Anyone who has been in a destructive relationship or a high-stress job that has taken a personal toll knows what I am talking about.

But there are also times when we need to persist – to keep trying. My experience tells me that quitting too soon is the greater problem. And the reason is simple: it’s usually easier to give something up than to stay with it.

My kids often wanted to give up music lessons. I encouraged them not to quit too early. “Stay with the lessons,” I told them. They did, and were later glad of it. I have spoken with many adults who said to me, “I used to take music lessons when I was a child. I regret the fact that I quit too soon. I wish I knew how to play the piano today.” I have never talked with an adult who said, “I took music lessons when I was a child. I regret the fact that I didn’t quit sooner.”

Of course, it’s not about music lessons…it’s about knowing, when things are rough, whether to keep going or to throw it in. How many books were never written because someone quit too soon? How many relationships died prematurely and how many dreams never bore fruit because someone gave them up?

There are good times to leave a job, to move on to a new relationship or to quit pounding on the same old nail that just won’t budge. But too often, I’ve given in to the temptation to quit too early. I didn’t stick around long enough to see what might happen if I persevered just a bit longer.

Dr. Albert Einstein once commented, “I think and think for months and years.” Can you imagine staying with a problem that long? “Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false,” he continued. “The hundredth time I am right.”

I don’t think that Albert Einstein had the problem of quitting too early. “It’s not that I’m so smart,” he famously said, “it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” He understood the value of not giving up too soon – and that alone shows how smart he really was.

I’ll never begin to understand the physics of the universe like Dr. Einstein, but it doesn’t take a genius to know when it’s not yet time to quit. Success is often just the result of staying with problems a little longer. And even I can do that.

Get the listing

Most successful (and honest) real estate agents will tell you that their business is about the listings, and that sales ability comes second. All other things being equal, the agent with a better home to sell will make a better sale.

The same thing is true for baseball managers—if you have a better lineup you’re more likely to win the game. And of course that’s true for the sushi restaurant with fresher fish. And the tech company with better programmers, and the college with better professors…

If this is all so obvious, why do we spend all our time trying to find cheap average inputs and then make them special through our magnificent sales and management skills? Why do we industrialize the hiring process, spend very little time on scouting, and seek out the replicatable instead of the special exception? Our ego demands that we spend all day polishing the average instead of seeking out the exceptional.

Better to invest the time and money on special people and raw materials instead.
