Drinking Alcoholic Drinks may be fun, but ensure that you don’t have to bear the consequences.
This one is extremely serious. Not only are you risking your own life, but also that of the others in the car and those who are out on the road or in other vehicles. Make sure that you either take a cab back home or have a sober friend who can take over the task. It’s not macho to drive when you are drunk.
Click pictures and upload them online
You do lose inhibitions when you are drunk, but if your drunken revelry finds its way online, it may cause a lot of trouble. Pictures that are loaded online can never be completely wiped off. You wouldn’t want your boss to see your party pictures, right?
Whether it’s your friend or someone you are interested in, don’t start a conversation with someone when you are drunk. You never know when your rather ‘high’ spirits may get you into some big trouble.
Get flirtatious with a stranger
Beauty does lie in the eye of the beerholder, but the illusion is bound to wear off once the beer haze passes away. You may end up regretting your actions the morning after your drunken revelry and do what is known as the ‘walk of shame’.
Talk to your ex
Most people get highly emotional after a few drinks and dialling your ex will seem to be the perfect solution. Resist that temptation. It never helps to keep blabbering when you are high. In fact, you may end up quashing all chances of resurrecting your relationship with your drunken talk.
Respond to anything that’s work-related
Well, you really don’t want to mix business with pleasure. Sometimes, it is necessary to use a certain language while writing an official mail and you may just type things that you don’t mean to. Ensure that your drunken state doesn’t affect your career.
Get into a fight
When drunk, you may think that anyone who disagrees with you is committing a crime. But that is not the time to go about serving justice. Make sure that spats stay verbal and don’t reach the physical level. You may not just end up with a black eye, but also a broken bone or two.

If you find yourself resisting “being strategic,” because it sounds like a fast track to irrelevance, or vaguely like an excuse to slack off, you’re not alone. Every leader’s temptation is to deal with what’s directly in front, because it always seems more urgent and concrete. Unfortunately, if you do that, you put your company at risk. While you concentrate on steering around potholes, you’ll miss windfall opportunities, not to mention any signals that the road you’re on is leading off a cliff.
This is a tough job, make no mistake. “We need strategic leaders!” is a pretty constant refrain at every company, large and small. One reason the job is so tough: no one really understands what it entails.
It’s hard to be a strategic leader if you don’t know what strategic leaders are supposed to do.
Adaptive strategic leaders — the kind who thrive in today’s uncertain environment – do six things well:
Most of the focus at most companies is on what’s directly ahead. The leaders lack “peripheral vision.” This can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. To anticipate well, you must:
- Look for game-changing information at the periphery of your industry
- Search beyond the current boundaries of your business
- Build wide external networks to help you scan the horizon better
“Conventional wisdom” opens you to fewer raised eyebrows and second guessing. But if you swallow every management fad, herdlike belief, and safe opinion at face value, your company loses all competitive advantage. Critical thinkers question everything. To master this skill you must force yourself to:
- Reframe problems to get to the bottom of things, in terms of root causes
- Challenge current beliefs and mindsets, including your own
- Uncover hypocrisy, manipulation, and bias in organizational decisions
Ambiguity is unsettling. Faced with it, the temptation is to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. A good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. To get good at this, you have to:
- Seek patterns in multiple sources of data
- Encourage others to do the same
- Question prevailing assumptions and test multiple hypotheses simultaneously
Many leaders fall prey to “analysis paralysis.” You have to develop processes and enforce them, so that you arrive at a “good enough” position. To do that well, you have to:
- Carefully frame the decision to get to the crux of the matter
- Balance speed, rigor, quality and agility. Leave perfection to higher powers
- Take a stand even with incomplete information and amid diverse views
Total consensus is rare. A strategic leader must foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. To pull that off, you need to:
- Understand what drives other people’s agendas, including what remains hidden
- Bring tough issues to the surface, even when it’s uncomfortable
- Assess risk tolerance and follow through to build the necessary support
As your company grows, honest feedback is harder and harder to come by. You have to do what you can to keep it coming. This is crucial because success and failure–especially failure–are valuable sources of organizational learning. Here’s what you need to do:
- Encourage and exemplify honest, rigorous debriefs to extract lessons
- Shift course quickly if you realize you’re off track
- Celebrate both success and (well-intentioned) failures that provide insight
Do you have what it takes?
Obviously, this is a daunting list of tasks, and frankly, no one is born a black belt in all these different skills. But they can be taught and whatever gaps exist in your skill set can be filled in.
Who knew ten years ago that you would need to remember so many passwords? A PIN for your bank account, personal email password, work computer log in: the list goes on & on. These suggestions will help to keep your online accounts as safe as possible.
1. Do not share your passwords
This is a common sense rule that is broken all the time. Please do not share your passwords with friends or family.
2. Don’t use simple words or phrases
Hackers have software that can generate common words even if you spell them backwards and add a number. Some of the most common passwords according to PC Magazine: password, 123456, qwerty, abc123, letmein, monkey, myspace1, password1, link182, (yourname). I hope your password isn’t in this list.
3. Don’t email your passwords to yourself or others
If hackers get your email, they will have access to all your accounts.
4. Use multiple passwords
Do not use the same password for all your accounts; again common sense. However, it is a common mistake.
5. Don’t log on to sensitive accounts on public WiFi
6. Don’t use personal details in your passwords
Names, birthdays, parts of addresses or pets names can all be easily guessed by someone who knows you.
7. Write your passwords down
But please keep them in a secure place!
8. Change your passwords every 3 months
9. An ideal password should be 14 characters long
To create a strong password, you can also use a random password generator such as PC Tools free Secure Password Generator.
10. Don’t use passwords that are easy to spot while you are typing them
11. Use capital letters, numbers and special characters in your password
12. How safe is your favorite password?
Check the strength of your password on this Microsoft page.

Deepavali or Diwali, popularly known as the “festival of lights,” is a festival celebrated between mid-October and mid-November for different reasons.
