National Youth Day

Dear All,
Today is "SWAMI VIVEKANANDA's" 153rd birth day. On this occasion, different celebrities are giving so many suggestions to youth for the development of individuals and country
Even though, I am not a celebrity, I would like to share few lines to my student community from my favorite book 'The 7 habits of highly effective people' by Stephen R. Covey

A personal mission statement focuses on what you want to be (character) and to do (contributions and achievements) and the value or principles upon which being and doing are based
  1. Succeed at home first
  2. Seek and merit divine help
  3. Never compromise with honesty
  4. Remember the people involved
  5. Hear both sides before judging
  6. Obtain counsel of others 
  7. Defend those who are absent
  8. Be sincere yet decisive
  9. Develop one new proficiency every year  
  10. Plan tomorrow's work today
  11. Hustle while you wait
  12. Maintain a positive attitude
  13. Keep a sense of humor
  14. Be orderly in person and in work
  15. Do not fear mistakes - fear only the absence of creative, constructive, and corrective responses to those mistakes
  16. Facilitate the success of subordinates
  17. Listen twice as much as you speak
  18.  Concentrate on all abilities and efforts on the task at hand, not worrying about the next job or promotion or exam results
My dear students, I will suggest everyone to self evaluate how many qualities you have and how to improve.
Think.....share with your friends

I will strongly believe that self development leads to family, society and country development.

I wish you all the best for your career

With best wishes,
