Procrastination is killing us day by day. As an Accountant if we practice it day by day, we will lose our effectiveness very soon. Who knows in future we will fall in great trouble. But every day we are doing it & we are losing our future achievements.

One day, I opened my two eyes and was surprised, even shocked. How could everything be so dark, total black, the darkest black, without color, not even a single dot of light. I tried to sit on my bed. My heart was full of anxiety and confusion.... "I still can't believe this. Am I blind now?". My two hands were shivering and still holding the blanket. I was sure that that was not a dream.…Continue

A lot of people tell me that I'm so quiet. A lot of people also perceive me as lonely, negative or not so quite interesting to talk to.
It is also what I describe myself, silent. Silence is my friend. I like being quiet because that's the time I hear the true sounds of everything around me. The trees are boosting their magnificence. The flowers beside the road are conveying their…Continue
Can you guess them?
1. The more people you share your pleasure with, the more you feel pleasure. On the other hand, the more people you share your sadness with, the less you feel sadness.

Joseph's recent emailed newsletter about "Typing and Writing Symbols" was interesting. It reminded me of the days when I taught business communication and computing.
One of the things I taught students was how to create symbols on their computers that were not available on their keyboards. These symbols, as some of you will know, are part of the ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) which you can find here:…Continue
