Hello2018_GSH_AshuBlogs_Panorama

Dear Readers,

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year, filled with pleasant surprises, good luck and cheerful laughter!

This year I will be adding three new sections to Panorama…

A. Gurlz Day Out, that will be me hanging out with my friends…

B. Healthcare Marketing – as I think, by now I have enough experience and knowledge to write on this subject–a subject on which someone has to write, so why not me!!

C. Bombayccino (read Bombay-chino)- my fashion centric blog, but I have realised it is not possible to manage two blogs, therefore, I am introducing it as a sub-section here with link to the main blog. It will have conversations on style over cups of cappuccino in Bombay…Mumbai…Meri Jaan, My Life!!!

Hope you will enjoy reading Panorama…

Till my next post, take care…

When In Doubt, Chuck It Out!

Standard

“Asma, remember, when in doubt, just chuck it out sweetie.” – That’s something my colleague kept repeating while we edited articles, press releases, news pieces, interviews, product updates, etc., etc., etc. Amazingly, it always worked out well. And just in an year, her favourite quote has become my favourite quote.

Initially, I applied this principle to my writing and editing only. But for the past few weeks, I have been practically applying this to other aspects of life—chucking out unnecessary comments, frenemies, any unusual behaviour, somebody’s never changing attitude, ego hassles, work politics, etc., etc., etc…and it is working! Sometimes this acts as a life saver, sometimes time saver, sometimes an easy solution to a difficult problem, sometimes mood elevator, and sometimes, simply fun. 🙂

So, these days whenever I am in doubt, I usually resort to chucking it out. It helps; at least it has till now. But personally I feel always chucking out may not be the only solution. At times one must also check out the facts before chucking out. 😉

Well, this chucking and checking business is very interesting—interesting enough that I plan to include it in my New Year Resolution List…something different, easy, simple, and of course, helpful and possibly entertaining!

And, till I master the art of chucking and checking, you all have a great fun filled happy week, happy weekend, happy holidays, happy winter and a very Happy New Year! 😀

What Is Your Resolution This Year?

Standard

Every year ends with a regret of not sticking to that year’s resolution and every year begins with yet another resolution. So what is your resolution this year? Oh yes, I know you have one!

Giving up smoking or may be drinking or probably both…

Exercising regularly …

Cutting on calories and eating a healthy diet…

Reducing the baby fat finally…

Brushing/flossing your teeth every day (yes, I know we don’t skip this) and night (is skipped at times)…

Arriving on time and reducing the late marks you had last year…

Forgiving foes, making more friends…

Making right investments…

Saving water, electricity, petrol…environment…

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

…the list goes on!

“May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions.”

– Joey Adams

Well, I pray that troubles, if any, last for minimal duration as I intend to stick to my resolutions (all except the first as I do not smoke or drink ;)) this year till the next year, and if need be, then a little longer.

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” 

– Oprah Winfrey

I will try to get it right and wish good luck to you all for the same!

I wish all my dear readers A Very Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, Prosperous & Wonderful 2010!
