Were You Productive Today?

first_imgDid you make progress on your most important project? Productivity isn’t how many things you scratch off your to-do list. You can have days where you complete all kinds of tasks, none of which have anything to do with what was really important. Productivity is doing what’s important.Did you move closer to your most important goal? If what you did today did not move you closer to your goals, you may not have been as productive as you might have been. Goals are achieved by taking disciplined action day after day, not all at once. If what you’re doing isn’t aligned with your long-term goals, you may have gotten things done without being productive.Did you do the three most important tasks that needed to be done today? I like the idea of having three major tasks to get done. It seems like the right number of major tasks. Maybe three 90-minute blocks of time invested in the above projects and goals? You might be able to do more, but if you have a list of twelve major tasks to do, you are kidding yourself.Did you make a difference? Did the things you do today make a difference? Did they make a difference in your business? Did they make a difference in your personal life? Did they make a difference in someone else’s life, maybe someone who needed your help? The most important work you do makes a difference. A lot of things we do fail this test, even if it makes you feel busy.Did you invest the appropriate time and energy in one or two of your most important relationships? There isn’t anything more important in your life than the people you care about and the people who care about you. You might be so busy doing “what” you are doing that you forget “why” you are doing it and for “whom” are you doing it?Did you learn something today that will help you improve your future results? Productivity isn’t only about doing what needs to be done now. Being productive also requires that you sharpen your saw. You are the saw. You’ll become dull if you don’t take the time to do things to keep sharp.Did you take care of your physical health? This one should have probably been first on the list. You need physical energy to be productive. You also need mental energy and stamina. You won’t have these things if you don’t eat well, drink water, exercise, and sleep (likely more than you are now, and likely more than you want to). You can’t be productive if you are wiped out.last_img read more

Record rainfall in Mount Abu

first_imgThe desert state of Rajasthan may want to permanently ban the cliché, ‘like the deserts miss the rain,’ as heavy downpour for the third consecutive day led to flood-like situations in Sirohi, Jalore and Pali districts.The State’s lone hill station, Mount Abu in Sirohi district, received an unprecedented 770 mm of rain in 24 hours. Statistics show that until 2010, the 100-year record for a single-day of rain in Mt Abu was 653 mm in 1992. The only comparable deluge after was a 453 mm downpour in 2015. According to A.K. Srivastava of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Pune, this was “possibly” the maximum rain ever received in the region.In comparison, the torrential rain that brought Mumbai to a standstill in 2005 was 944 mm and 644 mm on July 26 and 27, whereas Chennai was brought to its knees in 2015 with a cumulative November tally of 1,049 mm.A rise in extreme rainfall events, according to experts, is the consequence of a spike in temperatures across India in recent decades, and its effect on the monsoon. “Mt. Abu being hilly may not see a situation like Mumbai. But it is now well established that these rain records are a fall-out of global warming,” Mr. Srivastava said. Mount Abu is at an elevation of 4,000 ft above sea level.As incessant rains created chaos in the hill station, a large number of people were marooned, and the 28 km-long road that connects it to the Abu Road railway station was partially damaged.Tanveer Hussain, a medical officer at the government hospital in Mount Abu, told The Hindu that life was thrown out of gear as it had been raining incessantly for the past two days. “There were two incidents of landslide, but thankfully, the route to Abu Road is still somewhat functional despite partial damage,” he said. “All the markets, offices and schools in the town were closed.”(With inputs from Jacob Koshy)last_img read more

No govt. functions during Raje’s yatra

first_imgIn a major setback to Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, the Rajasthan High Court on Wednesday directed the ruling BJP to stop organising government functions en route her ‘Gaurav Yatra’ being held in the run-up to the State Assembly elections due in December this year. The court termed the holding of public functions during the yatra as an “abuse of power”.Allowing a public interest writ petition, a Division Bench led by Chief Justice Pradeep Nandrajog ruled that no public functions sponsored and financed by the State would be held during Ms. Raje’s yatra, which has so far covered the Mewar and Marwar regions and will resume from Bikaner district on Thursday.The PIL, filed by lawyer Vibhuti Bhushan Sharma and social activist Sawai Singh, alleged misuse of the government machinery and challenged the expenditure from the treasury for the yatra which is a BJP programme ahead of the Assembly elections. BJP president Amit Shah had flagged off the yatra from Charbhuja temple in Rajsamand on August 4.Taking note of an August 1 order issued to the Public Works Department for making arrangements, which has since been withdrawn, the court said the initial attempt by the government was a “palpable abuse of the State’s executive power to directly help a political party, i.e. the BJP”.The court observed that the State-financed programmes were so intermingled with the ‘Gaurav Yatra’ that it was impossible to segregate one from the other. “If the leader of a political party who happens to be the Chief Minister inaugurates public functions, the understanding would be glorification of the political party and not the achievements by the government.”The 12-page judgment relied on the Supreme Court’s decisions in two cases related to public-funded government advertisement campaigns, while holding that under the cover of the notices inviting tenders without listing works to be executed with detailed description, the State government was spending money for erecting public platforms from where the CM was addressing the political rallies.Caught on wrong foot The BJP government was caught on the wrong foot during the hearing, when the petitioners had claimed that a tender of ₹23 lakh was floated for the yatra in Sirohi district on the pretext of a “development exhibition for a VIP visit”, even when the matter was sub-judice. The court had sought a reply from the State government on the issue.The State government had earlier claimed during the hearing that the yatra was being organised by the BJP and no public money were being spent on it. It stated that the administration was only providing security to the CM and her Cabinet colleagues as per the protocol during the march, which was being taken out to apprise the people of the government’s welfare schemes.The BJP had also submitted an affidavit in compliance with the high court’s direction with the details of expenditure made during the yatra’s first phase. The affidavit stated that an expenditure of ₹1.10 crore was undertaken for the yatra.The Congress has welcomed the high court’s judgment, describing it as a “historic verdict [which] has shown mirror” to the BJP government. Pradesh Congress president Sachin Pilot said Ms. Raje’s yatra was a “gimmick”, on which the public money had been wasted for reaping political benefits. The issue of alleged misuse of public money during the yatra was also briefly raised on the opening day of the Rajasthan Assembly’s monsoon session on Wednesday.last_img read more

Shenhua open to Tevez extension despite struggles

first_imgCarlos Tevez Shanghai Shenhua open to Tevez extension despite struggles Thomas Floyd @thomasfloyd10 15:24 11/28/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Carlos Tevez Shanghai Shenhua Chandan Khanna Shanghai Shenhua FA Cup The Argentine star flew home upon learning he wouldn’t dress for the Chinese FA Cup final, but the club isn’t closing the door on a possible return Shanghai Shenhua are open to signing Carlos Tevez to a contract extension, despite an apparently fractured relationship between the Argentine star and his club.Tevez has struggled with form and fitness since joining the Chinese Super League side in December for a deal worth £615,000 per week.The striker was not named to the game-day squad for either match of Shenhua’s recent triumph over Shanghai SIPG in the Chinese FA Cup final, with the 33-year-old abruptly flying home to Argentina upon learning he wouldn’t dress for Sunday’s second leg.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Although the club acknowledged that Tevez has failed to meet expectations, Shenhua aren’t ruling out a return in 2018.”We decided to buy Tevez because the AFC Champions League qualifying phase was about to begin and at that time the new rules [to curb expensive signings] did not come to light,” Shenhua deputy general manager Zhou Jun told Shanghai TV.”Tevez was playing quite well in both Boca Juniors and Juventus. And since there was an arms race going on [in the CSL], our club needed a player who has a reputation and universal appeal.”Of course, in the end, he is not living up to those expectations. But he keeps working very hard to be in contention to play.”As for whether or not to extend his contract next year, it has to be a mutual choice. His future hinges on the outcome of further negotiations between the two parties.”Tevez has scored four goals in 16 CSL matches for Shenhua.last_img read more
