  • Annual performance review – everybody hates it. The givers, the getters, the administrators don’t measure whether or not it improves anybody’s performance or the performance of the businesses. We all do it pretty much the same way. Can’t we do better than that?

Being at the top is better than being one among others

Have skill-set to shine? Then join a workplace where you can prove your skill-set.

Choose the one which is growing than the one which has already grown. Latter has more people like you, where you would be one among them. But the former would have less probability of having much like you. Prove and be the leader there!

Already the leader? Target the next target higher than yours.

Never stop!
