What type of meeting rooms will suit your company?

Imagine a meeting room with high-backed leather chairs around a large conference table of polished teak, concealed lights beaming down from the overhead panels, dark blinds over the windows, a refreshments counter with delicate, floral chinaware and a piece of classic artwork on one wall.

Now imagine a room with cotton curtains, windows with wooden shutters that open outwards, coloured lampshades suspended from the ceiling, a potted plant of mogara at the entrance, many small tables and chairs that can be moved around the room and posters with quirky quotes on the walls.

So you hate your job? Your 8 Step Guide to Getting Back On Track

So you hate your job.  You have to push yourself to get to work everyday. Hour after hour, you wait for the day to end, for any opportunity to stop working. You miss your deadlines. You feel cut off from your colleagues. You don’t know if you can talk to your boss. There seems to be no one to turn to for help. You feel like you are wasting your time. Your confidence is dwindling. Sometimes, you feel cheated by your organisation, your team, your manager.

1) Stand for something. Make it known.

A remarkable idea is one that draws from strong belief, establishes rationale and translates to action. If your mission is vague and inarticulate, it will be forgettable.

Ask yourself why you are in the business of coworking spaces. Do you want to make the office a happy place that people are happy to return to? Do you believe coworking plays a role in leveling the playing field for all sexes? Are you targeting a space that takes away the stresses of urban life and sets people free to achieve their potential?

             In retrospect of our independence –   We Matter

In the India of 1947, in the dusk of celebratory days, what did our predecessors see before themselves? Amidst the joy and the strife, the dawn of an era of nation building. Men and women of all ages, within their own realms of power, saw that they were at a cusp of history where they could be the architects of their own nation. No matter the arduous road ahead, the possibilities were immense and lay open to be ceased.

      It is the 16th of August 2018. The 72nd anniversary of our independence has passed. And aren’t we bearers of the same power and responsibility for nation building as  our predecessors in 1947? They wanted peace and prosperity, opportunity and equality. Do we want any different? Surely our responsibility must be no lesser than the generation that fought for our freedom. If at all, it must be more. Soon after Independence, it must have been easy to never let nation building out of sight. Today it is probably easier to forget that whether we know it or not each one of us is an actor in the life of our country.
