Tagged by Ranit (no not that one-eyed king, stupid) and the concept it 8. So, here it goes

An abstract one to start with!

1. I have completed about 21 years of education, but have just started learning about learning!

2. I am perceived to be a cheerful fellow, equally by guys and girls, but have never had (and likely will never have) a girl friend! I am not sure if that is an achievement or a misfortune!

3. Inspite of my share of failures in life, I consider myself luckier than about 80% of people in the world. Why?
- Never had any bad ailments or disability, temporary or permanent, nor got hospitalized for any reason whatsoever. As a "touch wood", here is another fact. I was bitten by dog.....twice!
- I have an enviable gang of friends (in the truest sense of its meaning) who have helped me in need (and this is not cliche)
- Parents, brother, complaints there (I wish I had a sibling) either!

Bottom line, I have enough of every thing one needs!

4. I have a lot of things that I fear, but end up gathering the strength to face the music. Whether I have won or not is another matter.

5. Inspite of my reasonable command over the English language, my reading speed is abysmal.

6. I can read Japanese, but my reading speed is (Eng. WPM) / 100000

7. Unlike an average Indian, my contribution to the society doesn't stop with paying taxes. But I have never voted.

8. Unlike an average engineering graduate, I *hate* the days of my undergraduate engineering. That is one things I would wish to change if I can go back in time.

Rules of the game :
- Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
- People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
-At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
- If you fail to do this within eight hours, you will not reach Third Series or attain your most precious goals for at least two more lifetimes :)

Need of the hour

I have heard some time in the past, not exactly in the same words, that

"The more you learn, the more you realize about how less you know."

I cannot agree more. Based on a quick introspection, I have listed for myself six traits that I need no later than NOW. I have identified a lot of "traits" that I have to do away with, but a little rumination told me that those "traits" are only the offshoot of the paucity/absence of one or more of the elements of the list.

This list leaves me wondering "What do I have now, if I don't have any of these?". But the first element of the list proscribes such a thought! :)

1. Positive outlook

2. Meticulous planning

3. Relentless pursuit

4. Discipline

5. Application

6. Time management
