New Year resolutions and power steps to achieve them


Yes, it’s that time of the year again when majority of the world is ‘listing’ their ‘New Year Resolutions’ by starting the headline as “WELCOME 2014 – New Year Resolutions“. 

Well, I am for sure one of them. I had planned Eleven resolutions for 2013 and was lucky enough to have achieved Seven of them in 2013.

New Year Resolutions 2014

So here I am, yet again with new ones this year. But I kept pondering over why I could not achieve the four from the eleven resolutions which got me into thinking and researching for articles online. 

I found some power steps and process that I feel could help each me may be achieve at least eight this year of the nice. Well, may be!

No, these are not my steps or strategies, but resourceful links and articles from Harvard Business Review that can be easily applied into each of our lives on a daily practice basis. So here they are – 

“The content given below are not in my words, but links and snippets of articles that I found really useful”

1. Nine Things Successful People Do Differently

  1. Get specific & think about the specific actions that need to be taken to reach your goal eg. Lose 5 Pounds and get to bed by 10 pm during weekdays.
  2. Seize the moment to act on your goals – eg. Make that call right now that you have been wanting to make. Finish reading that book or at least get started. Be precise – Start reading from 4 pm today, make the call in the next two hours etc.
  3. Know exactly how far you have left to go
  4. Be a realistic optimist
  5.  Focus on getting better, rather than being good
  6. Have grit
  7.  Build your willpower muscle
  8. Don’t tempt fate
  9.  Focus on what you will do, not what you won’t do

Google Business Group ROI on Social media Ananth V


Google Business Group Mumbai event pictures and highlights

It’s always exciting and fun to attend events as a Speaker, especially when you have corporate professionals and business owners as the audience, since the interactions are always higher and usually extremely engaging.

ROI on social media by Ananth V Google Business Group Mumbai

Google Business Group Mumbai ROI on Social media

The event was from Google Business Group in Mumbai at Mithibai College on 21/12/2013 and the event pictures were covered by The Indian Networker and the topic was “ROI for Social media for BRANDS” by me (Ananth V) and all I had actually prepared for, was merely the presentation slides. WHY? Well, because for a topic like this, one really can’t prepare too much as it would depend on the “queries” and the engagement that the audience does with you during each slide.

So, a sincere thanks to every participant for making the presentation very interactive and engaging with rich sets of questions. – Read the complete post of the event highlights here – Google Business Group: Mumbai event: ROI on Social media: Speaker Ananth V Click here to read

Life artwork drawn by me


I woke up yesterday night at around 2am. It was strange because I had slept at 1:30am. I looked inside my study shelf, pulled out a canvas sheet from way underneath the pile of magazine covers & coffee table books and started sketching.
It was 9am in the morning today when I realized I had flooded it with colours.
Here is what I ended up painting in those 7 hours….
ananthv life artwork
Theme: LIFE & Music
  • Details of Artwork: Poster Colours On CANVAS
  • Size: 2 Feet X 2.5 feet (approximately)
Description of the Art work:
  • The BLUE section of the artwork has the words LIFE written, below which there are images / symbols drawn of Peace & Love and just below them are the curves of life’s circle depicted with colours.
  • Then there is a text “DARWIN” written in ascending font size format symbolizing both, the evolution that was Darwin’s theory and the Evolution of Life and the words NEWTON, wherein the O is dropped below symbolizing both, Newton’s gravity theory and the Ups and Downs of Life.
  • In the Green section, is the word “IS” as in continuation from the word above of Life….  and there is a big violin drawn right next to it below which is the path / roadway depicting the various moods and paths of life.
  •  In the Pink/Red section – The Piano keys and the words BEAUTIFUL (written in Morse code language) showcasing that  Life is a puzzle a musical note, to be solved and not everything in Life is in ‘black and white’.
  •  In the final, Yellow section – There is a trumpet signifying Jazz music (one of my favourites) with a Golden lady dancing around it. This section depicts Luxury, passion, chaos all at once, hence the use of colors like purple, yellow, gold, orange across ….
