10 Tips For Successful Public Speaking
From: Anitha @ Fidelity (Bangalore)
  • Know the room. Be familiar with the place in which you will speak. Arrive early, walk around the speaking area and practice using the microphone and any visual aids.
  • Know the audience. Greet some of the audience as they arrive. It's easier to speak to a group of friends than to a group of strangers.
  • Know your material. If you're not familiar with your material or are uncomfortable with it, your nervousness will increase. Practice your speech and revise it if necessary.
  • Relax. Ease tension by doing exercises.
  • Visualize yourself giving your speech. Imagine yourself speaking, your voice loud, clear, and assured. When you visualize yourself as successful, you will be successful.
  • Realize that people want you to succeed. Audiences want you to be interesting, stimulating, informative, and entertaining. They don't want you to fail.
  • Don't apologize. If you mention your nervousness or apologize for any problems you think you have with your speech, you may be calling the audience's attention to something they hadn't noticed. Keep silent.
  • Concentrate on the message -- not the medium. Focus your attention away from your own anxieties, and outwardly toward your message and your audience. Your nervousness will dissipate.
  • Turn nervousness into positive energy. Harness your nervous energy and transform it into vitality and enthusiasm.
  • Gain experience. Experience builds confidence, which is the key to effective speaking. A Toastmasters club can provide the experience you need.

How to look BUSY!

Being busy with work and looking like it are two different things. Master the art of looking busy. Read on...
  • Never walk without a document People with documents look hardworking. Those with nothing in their hands look like they're going to the cafeteria.
  • Carry loads of stuff home with you at night to show that you work longer hours than you really do.
  • Messy desk Build huge piles of documents around your workspace, only top management can get away with a clean desk.
  • Screen all your calls through voice mail If somebody leaves a message for pending work, respond during lunch hour when you know they're not there.
  • Look impatient & annoyed to give the impression that you're always busy.
  • Always leave the office late, especially when the boss is still around. Make sure you walk past the boss' room on your way out.
  • Send important e-mails at unearthly hours (i.e. 9:35pm , 7:05am , etc.) & during public holidays.
  • Creative sighing for effect Sigh loudly when there are many people around, giving the impression that you are under extreme pressure
  • It is not enough to pile lots of documents on the table. Put lots of books on the floor, etc. (thick computer manuals are the best).
  • Read computer magazines & pick out all the jargon & new products. Use the phrases freely when in conversation with bosses.
  • MOST IMPORTANT -- DON'T forward this to your boss by mistake!

Today's CENTI
From: Anitha @ Fidelity (Bangalore)
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. he noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that at the worst times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. How could you leave me when I needed you the most?"
The Lord replied " My precious, precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of suffering and when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Today's CENTI
From: Anitha @ Fidelity (Bangalore)
John received a free ticket to the international match, happening in his town. Unfortunately. John's seat was in the last row in the corner of the stadium. He noticed an empty seat 10 rows up. He decides to make his way to the empty seat. As he sits down he asks the man next to him if anyone is sitting there. The man told him no, it was empty. John is very excited to have a seat like this at a match like this and asks why in the world no one is using it? The man replied that it was his wife's seat but she passed away. He said this was the first match that they have not attended together since they were married in 1968. John said that it was really sad and asked if he couldn't find someone, a relative or a close friend to take the seat? "No" replied the man, "They're at her funeral!"

George Carlin's View on Aging
From: Kiranmayi@adecco (Bangalore)
  • Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctor worry about them. That is why you pay him/her.
  • Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
  • Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. " An idle mind is the devil's workshop. And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.
  • Enjoy the simple things.
  • Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
  • The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.
  • Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
  • Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
  • Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
  • Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Do share this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!

How do we hear?
From: Anitha @ Fidelity (Bangalore)
When something makes a noise, it sends vibrations, or sound waves, through the air.The human eardrum is a stretched membrane, like the skin of a drum. When the sound waves hit your eardrum, it vibrates and the brain interprets these vibrations as sound.Actually, as most things having to do with the human body, it is a little more complicated than that.
After the vibrations hit your eardrum, a chain reaction is set off. Your eardrum, which is smaller and thinner than the nail on your pinky finger, sends the vibrations to the three smallest bones in your body. First the hammer, then the anvil, and finally, the stirrup. The stirrup passes those vibrations along a coiled tub in the inner ear called the cochlea.Inside the cochlea there are thousands of hair-like nerve endings, cilia. When the Cochlea vibrates, the cilia move. Your brain is sent these messages (translated from vibrations by the cilia) through the auditory nerve.Your brain then translates all that and tells you what you are hearing.


Think before you ask
From: Anitha @ Fidelity (Bangalore)
A man found a brass lamp, rubbed it vigorously, and a genie appeared.
"For freeing me from the lamp, I will grant you any wish you desire," the genie said.
The man replied, "I want a spectacular job. A challenge that no man has ever succeeded at or has ever even dared try.
" "Poof!" Said the genie. "You're a housewife."
