A vision is like a dream. It will disappear unless we do something with it. Do something big or do something small. But stop wandering and go on with an adventure.
- From Simon Sinek’s little book of inspiration.
The most powerful force in the human psychic is how we describe ourselves to ourself.
Your life is not defined by one big decision. It is defined by small decisions you make over and over again.
Einstein theorized and we all agree that E=mc², where E, m and c represents energy, mass and the speed of light respectively.
E, m and c are not almighty that come and solve your problems. They are just an arbitrary representations used to explain a theory.
Same is with Shiva, Vishnu, Jesus, Allah, Durga… and all 1 million+ gods.
An interaction with Mr. X, Doctor by profession and a Social worker by heart, at the airport waiting for our flight. Discussing ways to empower people from remote/ backward areas
Me: So why do you think the majority of the people that are hunger-stricken or poor unable to think big?
X: Okay! Tell me are you a ‘Glass is half-full’ person or ' Glass is half-empty' person?
Me: ‘Half-full’ may be!
X: Well, for a person that is thirsty, doesn’t care if it’s half-full or half-empty, He would just drink it.
Wrong type of Audience!
This interaction has got me thinking for a long time, and would like to know more of your thoughts on this.
Me: So what do you think is the problem with helpful articles, inspirations or advices on social media.
X: There is no problem with those articles, but the problem is with such articles reaching wrong audience. and people being inspired from sources that are not relevant to them. For example, advice needed for baby boomers is different than that of millennials. Posts related to an established tycoon are different from a teenager.
A person responsible for multi million corporation taking advice on budget/ organizational structure from a nobody on snapchat or youtube is a problem. …
*After thinking about this statement for a while, here’s my take on this.
Imagine a coach training a group of students to run a marathon, that needs a steady pace. Imagine one of those students is running extremely fast, burning out himself and another student is just casually walking. Now, what happens if the coach shouts just ‘Go Slow’, and the person that’s casually walking follows that advice? or the coach shouts ‘Run Faster’ and person that already running fast take that advice? It is the same with Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, LinkedIn, WhatsApp groups, or any other social media. *

Drupal 7 Migrate Taxonomy to Organic GroupsProject · Nov 10, 2017 · Permalink · 1min read
Organic Groups module for drupal, enable users to create and manage their own ‘groups’. Each group can have subscribers, and maintains a group home page where subscribers communicate amongst themselves.
A website of a federal client, that I worked on, had custom groups functionality, implemented using taxonomy. It became out-of-scale to manage that way, any longer and also they with restricted, by that. This module, crawls through each taxonomy term, create an organic group, based on those terms. Also migrate all users, posts, likes, comments, interaction history, … from being assigned to taxonomy term to being part of organic groups.
