What a day!
This weekend starts of with a CSR calling up for offers! Then the comp goes bonkers, rather the console does not cooperate. The evening was a misery. It is Statistics! Mode, mean… hmm, I was out of it in school now it comes back with a bang. Then comes some very gruesome English. Believe me; I was subject to torture having to hear the person talk. Then like much awaited respite, a friend drops by. A blogger himself, he definitely requires mention. It is always so much fun having to spend time with people with whom you can share sensible conversations. Alas, there are so few of the kind left on this world. Once the monitor was functional, routine work on the www. During a chat session, an erudite friend delivered an in-depth definition of inspiration vs motivation. Then after all that, I sit to write this post. Phew!
Forget the statistics; forget the English! The evening, that was interesting. After his arrival, we sit to talk about a mutual friend. A very sweet dame, who can be clearly vulnerable to whatever friends say. She, in short, cares a lot for members of her social circle. Old stories from college fill the room with nostalgia. Then discussing some abstruse topics; – what differentiates motivation and inspiration; some random musings about how clichéd the family circle can be – all in the earshot of the family! Well it does help to keep everybody appraised about general perceptions. So with what do we end up? A couple of hours and a great time spent. In addition, some fabulous ideas and some random stuff that we can ponder upon. The purpose of his visit was to discuss a few intricacies of his plans to motivate people to write. Moreover, with me… a person who has never taken writing for serious all this time. A perspective of this person: he is charming to say the least. Has a great mind, underutilized sometimes and Ambition. Well sometimes, excited about a pair of smart shoes, and otherwise thinking of why we see a crescent like a ‘U’ and not the otherwise? U can imagine the might and range of his thinking. That’s the influence of statistics. Then there are his predictions – seems to work out for a couple of people, let’s see if it does in my case. (I owe him a Louis Vuitton pair of shoes if it does. Thats what you see at the top. Vain attempt to place it right.) Let me leave that at that, anything more would prove to be revelation. So with all that done, and a few ideas and thoughts being smuggled in and out of our craniums, its time to bid adieu and get to the www. A very erudite and selfless friend gives me insight on the inspiration vs. motivation concept over chat. Plainly stated, inspiration is from within where as motivation is from others. The ‘urge to’ can be called inspiration. Ever thought about this?
Well, inspiration is there. Now motivation is in place. After logging on to orkut and some random souls sending you friend requests and one line scraps… you finally find solace blogging. Not to forget wikipedia. Then eventually you decide that its time to write some thing sensible.Hmmm… Did this post even come close to being sensible?
