Thinking positive rather negatives

Most often we see ourselves criticizing a person - "He used to be in IT and now he moved into Business career. Man he destroyed his career - why wasted time studying in IT? "

Now i say.. we are wrong. Actually he found his strength in understanding business and he could be the best resource to get the idea of a business or assisting us in gathering requirements or identifying the risk or priority or dependencies on other 3rd party applications in Development cycle of an IT Project.

I met many IT background ppl or who studied in Computer Science in previously are now working in different business departments. And they are so helpful and understanding to get the things out of their department according to our IT requirements. As for example - it's always tough for IT ppl to make a business ppl understand about the technical stuffs or complexity or the format needs to be followed. Even sometimes it's very helpful to train other Business ppl in that department on certain technical stuff.

Most often we ignore trainings because of the title sounds very funny or silly. A training titled as - "Time Management Training" or "Effective presentation and communications" might lead you as -

1. Wat? do you think i am late at Office?
2. Wat? do you think i need to be trained how to use PowerPoint and how to talk?

Ok.. actually not. We just took it on a wrong way. Time management training that i had was mind blowing.. though i am very poor to start practicing something very new and little complex to me to follow unless it's deeply into my understanding. But i bet those who had been in that session was amazingly surprised why we never had this type of tranings in our early ages! This training is not only for a professional but it's for a human who wants to be successful in life. It's basically all about time planning of your whole life. How we wasted our important times and where to emphasize and which is less important in our planning.

Now about the effective presentation and communications - i was determined not to attend in this training on my sweet weekend. But suddenly it clicked in my mind.. what if i am going to miss something in my life as i was not aware of my time management? :) Though the session was too long but i learned at least few new things.. like how to introduce myself and what not to do and what to do while presenting myself in a glimpse on a short time. Mater of practice! But really effective!

I suggest everyone to get in touch with all those general self development trainings if possible - cause it may open up your mind! I have an interest of doing Anger Management training if found. Give me an answer why we can't accept any new changes easily? Cause we are so narrow to our scopes. We don't think of exploring or trying out new stuff. We can't accept the reality - what if someone points out my mistakes.

I know this post may sound very generic or OFF topic to you but i believe it may change someones thought to start thinking positive rather thinking always negatives. Hey? wait.. i am not asking you to ignore the negatives or the reality. But i am asking you to give a chance to think positive by not ignoring the reality. :)
