“The future is always beginning now” — Mark Strand
What do you want to do if you have the means to do so?
- Start a farm
- Become a baker
- Open a restaurant
- Become a teacher
- Make & Sell goods
- Something else altogether
- I’m undecided. Let me do my job
Does your hobby fit into any of these categories? If so, that’s great! If not, love your job. Most of us aim to quit their job and pursue the commercialization of a hobby. Isn’t that the dream? Actually, to find work that interests you — that should be the dream! But, here we are, looking for alternate work and reality, when it is up to us to shape it. But who do none of us want to join politics and run a government?
We all want to be governed well. Don’t we? Yet, we choose to not be part of it consciously. Isn’t that ironical?
Have the politicians been so successful to make this career look so unappealing that you won’t pick it up unless you are born into it or face a lack of work. But that’s ok. Even if we plan a conscious role in self-governance and future around us and at home, we’ll drive some positivity in the community. It’s a bit preachy this time. So I’ll stop right here and keep it super-short. I got work to do and a lot of it as well. But in the meantime, pick a hobby that bodes well with the future!
Some other things I found interesting from last week
- Chipotle wants to diworsify from burrito rolling. Will be serving burgers, fries and shakes from later this year.
Henkel is positioning itself to become a part of the automotive 3D printing market. Is making an adhesive solution for it.
- Flipkart acquired Jabong for $70 million. Bet the Yahoo-Verizon deal looks big now! Also,Flipkart might’ve laid off 1000 employees. Anxious moments for some start-up employees in India.
- Indian travelers rate network connection over everything else. Not surprising one bit. We can’t get through a day without dialing missed calls. It’s the first thing we invented since zero.s
- Getty Images sent a warning letter to Carol M. Highsmith to pay royalty feefor a few images. But that brilliantly backfired. It turns out that Carol was a famous photographer who had donated 18000+ images for unrestricted public access. Getty used these to make a lot of money and sued Carol for using them! Getty — being over-smart aren’t you?
