How to keep yourself motivated

“How to keep yourself motivated”?


One of the biggest questions that you face after spending a subsequent time doing the same thing is how do you keep yourself motivated.There are people who are lucky to be able to follow their passion and still be able to make a living out of it, but this is not true for for all. The one who do a job only to make money. Even more difficult is that most of us are not blessed with a job that proves challenging every day. Motivation is something which helps you keep going on doing what you are doing. Have you ever seen a counter clerk, a salesman in a shop in a mall, a taxi driver, a air hostess, … these are people who on a routine face similar situations and similar people.

Ever wondered how they manage to be happy and keep doing the same stuff daily.

So how do you keep yourself motivated, no matter what you are doing. One very frequent question that I usually ask my self is “Should I be doing different things” or “Should I do things differently ?”

In a generation which believes in switching jobs every few months motivation is achieved by doing different things. I am of the belief that motivation can also be done by doing things differently.

Feeding the Elephant

I am assuming that almost everyone reading this already has a Job and the one which which has a 5 day week or a 6 day week. Leaving at least one day to spare. One of the most effective way to follow your passion is to adopt it as an hobby. Leaving your passion to rot while you keep doing your mundane job is the worst thing you could do.


Diversify – When you start realising that you are loosing interest. This is what large companies do when they see a stagnancy. Do something totally opposite of your core business.  As an individual a long loved hobby could be a good place to start. That one passion of yours which were not able to give time just because you were neck deep saving your job and making money. People usually tend to neglect small things while they are busy looking up. Start to see things with a different set of glasses in a different shade. Make sure your diversification doesn’t add more stress to your existing life. Keep it simple and go light on it. Do stuff that come naturally and need no forcing.

Motivation is the carrot on the stick that encourages you to continue do something even though you may not be enjoying in doing it and remember Self motivation has no substitute.

Magizhchi !!!

Not the best of Super Star a.k.a Rajnikanth

But good enough to bring #Magizhchi to all those die hard Rajni Fans for whom Rajni movies have become a rare phenomenon now a days.


A movie devoid of the typical Rajni comedy and stunts, However for a man who captures his audience just by his aura. Style and Rajni are synonymous whatever he does becomes a statement. Be it the way he flips the goggles before wearing or how he throws and catches a cigarette, or the way he walks or sits everything.

No doubt this movie will break all previous records and might become another landmark, however with such an expectations it would have been great if movie was worth its hype. The story seems to be a good one and woven around a good message, Rajni does what he does best and so is the supporting cast. I somehow felt that the makers could have used the plot better and also at some places it seems as if they were dragging it a bit more. To much of Malay dialogue could have been avoided and scenes where Kabali is looking out for his wife in Chennai and Pondicherry could have been tidied up a little more. Radhika Apte has done justice to her role and plays it well, I understand its too much to ask for Rajni movie but Radhika Apte should have given a little more screen space. Liked Danshika and the twist of her turning out as Kabali’s daughter rather than a paid assassin intending to kill Kabali.

The last scene of the movie implies that someone shoots even Rajni in the end, Giving a message that even the Hero has to die after being a Gangster, But the movie makers have intelligently not shown that seen had they done it Rajni Fans might have burnt the cinema hall.

Finally Leaving you all with the lyrics of the famous title song:

Neruppu Da!
Nerungu Da!

Bayama Ha Ha!
Nerunguda Papom!
Posukura Kootam!

Adikira Alikira Ennam
Mudiyuma Nadakuma Innum!

Adakuna Adangura Aala Nee!
Eluthathum Piriyura Noola Nee!
Thadaiyellam Mathikira Aala Nee!
Vidiyala Virumbidum Kabali


Karunaiyai Maru
Kavalaigalai Aru
Idhayathil Oru Irukum Varum Poru
Yaavum Inge Maayam Maayam
Un Veeram Engum Seeri Paayum
Nam Desam Engum Rosam Yerum
Oru Vaarthai Kooda Pudhu Maatram Kaanum

Na Vanthutenu Solu
Thirumbi Vanthutenu,
25 Varshathuku Munadi Epdi Ponano Kabali,
Apdiye Thirumbi Vanthutenu Solu..
Kabali Da

Viduthalai Adai
Vidaiyena Ninai
Bayathaye Murai
Pagal Kanavai Udai
Veeram Thyagam Modhum Modhum
Un Tholil Kaayam Aarum Aarum
Ini Kurotham Dhrogam Maayum Maayum
Varungaalam Ini Idhigaasam Aagum.

I am not a Rajni Fan but Could not resist the following photoshop



Watch your Step

AR (Augmented Reality) games like Pokémon GO solve one of the most important concern of the digital immigrant parents that their kids do not go out and play and stay glued to their smartphone/tablet.For those who have been living under a rock and do not know what Pokémon GO is – Its a augmented reality based mobile game .

Pikachu-appearsThe game uses your smartphone’s camera, GPS, and position sensors to tell the game what to display and where, creating the illusion that cute little cartoon “pocket monsters” are standing in your living room, on the sidewalk outside, or in the park nearby. You grab free Pokéballs (to catch the critters, naturally) at local sites of historical interest. And businesses can purchase Pokémon “lures” as advertising to draw imaginary monsters and real fans to their physical location.

Coming out alongside the app is a smart wearable called the Pokémon GO Plus. It can be worn like a watch or just carried in a pocket. The GO Plus uses Bluetooth technology to communicate with your phone and let you know when something is happening in the game, like when there’s a Pokémon nearby, so you don’t need to be staring at your phone all day everyday to participate. You can even do simple actions like throwing Pokéballs by pressing the button in the center of the device (which glows in rainbow colors).

One challenge though is that the game has access to lot of your online data and there is a growing concern that this can be misused when in wrong hands. Also Pokemon GO has been under scrutiny across the world from those concerned that the game could lead people into dangerous areas or cause them to stop paying attention to the road. There are reports in the US and Canada of men falling from a cliff while playing the game, as well as people being knocked by cars.
