Life's little instruction book.!!

Life's Little Instruction Book    
Have a firm handshake.  
Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference..  

Avoid sarcastic remarks.  

Choose your life's mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90 per cent of all your happiness or misery. 

Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.  

Lend only those books you never care to see again. 

Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have.  

When playing games with children, let  them win. 

Give people a second chance, but not a third.  

Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.  

Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.

Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's there for your convenience, not the caller's.  
Be a good loser. Be a good winner.

Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.  

When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.  

Keep it simple. Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born..  

Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.  

Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.

Live your life so that your epitaph could read, No Regrets.  

Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the one's you did.  

Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.  

Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.  

Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you..  

Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.

Begin each day with some of your favourite music.  

Once in a while, take the scenic route.

Send a lot of Valentine cards. Sign them, 'Someone who thinks you're terrific.'  

Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice.  

Keep a note pad and pencil on your bed-side table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 a.m.  

Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job is.

Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later.  
Make someone's day by paying the toll for the person in the car behind you. (KH: I would love to find one every time on a toll gate J )  

Become someone's hero.  

Count your blessings.  

Compliment the meal when you're a guest in someone's home.  

Wave at the children on a school bus.

Remember that 80 per cent of the success in any job is based on our ability to deal with people.  

Don't expect life to be fair.   

Try Working on them ...from  TODAY onwards.. & live happily!

Waqt Nahin

A very beautiful poem on today's fast life. 


Har khushi Hai Logon Ke Daman Mein, 
Par Ek Hansi Ke Liye Waqt Nahi. 
Din Raat Daudti Duniya Mein, 
Zindagi Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi. 

Maa Ki Lori Ka Ehsaas To Hai, 
Par Maa Ko Maa Kehne Ka Waqt Nahi. 
Saare Rishton Ko To Hum Maar Chuke, 
Ab Unhe Dafnane Ka Bhi Waqt Nahi. 

Saare Naam Mobile Mein Hain, 
Par Dosti Ke Liye Waqt Nahi. 
Gairon Ki Kya Baat Karen, 
Jab Apno Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi 

Aankhon Me Hai Neend Badee, 
Par Sone Ka Waqt Nahi. 
Dil Hai Gamon Se Bhara , 
Par Rone Ka Bhi Waqt Nahi 

Paison ki Daud Me Aise Daude, 
Ki Thakne ka Bhi Waqt Nahi. 
Paraye Ehsason Ki Kya Kadr Karein, 
Jab Apne Sapno Ke Liye Hi Waqt Nahi 

Tu Hi Bata E Zindagi, 
Iss Zindagi Ka Kya Hoga, 
Ki Har Pal Marne Walon Ko, 
Jeene Ke Liye Bhi Waqt Nahi.........

7 Ways to make a good impression

7 Ways to Make a Good Impression

Click here to join nidokidos




Impressions are important: They leave an initial taste in people's mouths that can remain prevalent for the entire relationship. If you are paranoid about what kind of impression you make, run through these seven list items and see if you are consistent with them; if you are, then you will probably expose the best of yourself. If not, then work to meet these standards.

1. Dress: The absolute first impression you will make on someone will be through your clothing, because that is what is seen from a distance, and cannot change throughout your meeting. Make sure to dress according to the situation-don' t over or under dress-and maintain within the limits of good taste. If you aren't sure if what you're wearing looks good, ask people for an honest opinion. One last thought: always, and I mean always, pull up your pants
2. Hygiene: Take a shower! Shave! Brush your teeth! You must be fully bathed and groomed before you meet with someone for the first time, because scruffy looking people generally don't seem as neat and mature. Pay attention to the little elements like breath: keep a pack of mint gum with you wherever you go, and periodically check to make sure you aren't killing bugs every time you breathe out. If you sweat heavily, keep a small stick of deodorant/anti- perspirant close, and if you notice you're stinking you can freshen up. People notice the minutiae!
3. Manners: At the table and with other people be civilized, polite and respectful: keep your elbows off of the table, open doors for people and address everyone-initially, at least-by their formal title. This will make an especially good impression on senior citizens, because you will prove that you aren't one of those "new fangled punks."
4. Speech: Have clean, clear diction and speak sans "like" or "you know." It is important to be articulate because that inspires a feeling of intelligence and education in the person you are meeting with. Always leave out profanity, and whatever you do, make sure to speak loud enough for all to hear, because conversationalists are easily agitated if you force them say "excuse me?" more than a few times.
5. Discretion: Choose what to share about yourself: forget to tell everyone about that time you went camping and ruptured your appendix, then fell face first into a pile of bug infested leaves-it is rude and will alienate you from the group. Try to withhold from conversations on personal subjects like religion or more disgusting topics like personal medical care. Before you speak, think about the possible impact of what you might say, then imagine its implications in the long run.
6. Humor: Humor can be your most powerful tool or your doom, because everyone has a slightly different sense of humor. What might be hilarious to you might seem disgusting to another, or vice versa. Try to withhold from any jokes that aren't family or dinner table friendly; you can tell those later.
7. Start and End with a Bang: Whoever you are meeting with will remember how you greet them, and then in what manner you left them. If you feel you have trouble with this, practice a few different phrases in the mirror, and introduce elements like: "pleased to meet you," or "honored to make your acquaintance. " Ignore the antiquity of these phrases; it often makes them more memorable.
Making a good impression will set any relationship off on a good foot. If you are in a situation where you need to be judged at face value-such as a job interview or date-then make sure to go through this list and make sure you are within bounds of reason and good taste on all of your decisions.
