• What are Mental Models?

    In surveying, one of the fundamental principles is to work from whole to part.Suppose you have to draw a map of your house. You start drawing a room. Then another and so on. If you did some mistakes in drawing any room, then every room will be wrongly placed. It is more likely that you will cross the boundaries of your house. Your mistake will have an accumulating effect.To avoid this, we should first draw external boundaries. Then proceed towards internal details. By doing so, the mistake has a local effect and can be corrected easily.I am a civil engineer. I use this principle in my general life too.So, what…

We have to just know how to solve questions.I have become good at solving questions. The cost that I have paid for this is the love…

  • Perfect is the enemy of Good

    This quote blew my mind.Yes. This is the formula I needed. I was struck. I was always waiting for perfect moments.It helped me start moving.In most cases, trying to make something perfect prevent us from making it good. So, instead of setting my perfect blog.

Business: I shall start my business when I have the best ideas and resources. This…
