• "I see what you don’t. Write about things least spoken of. Speak less, listen more. Watch less, observe more. Know more by learning more. Attach less, detach more. Be seen less, remembered more. And believe that less is, in fact, more."
  • "Today, organs can get replaced but no one has found a replacement for lost trust, abandoned hearts, shattered souls and tears that flowed. Imagine that!"
  • "Life is not a straight line. It is a circle. See you a-round!"
  • If you do not wish to cross the bridge when you get to it go ahead, take a boat... either way, cross over, you will have to."

Innovators and Imitators


Do you sometimes get the feeling you are being closely watched? Your work? Your style?
Something that comes naturally to you is being closely monitored?

Most often you will be right. Especially if your work is open to public.

I know what Alok Shukla will say to this “If someone is imitating you, take it as a compliment.” :)
My father usually operates from a higher ground. He is the closest I will ever get to a ‘Yogi in spirit, thoughts and action’ style of operating.

For every innovator, there will be several imitators. Like Viv says, “for every Apple product, there will be thousands of cheap knock-offs, but the original will always remain the original.”

More than the price tag attached to an ‘original’ thereby making it desirable, value the innovation, effort, creativity, and the originality that makes it truly desirable.

Indulge your Karma by giving heartfelt attribution to the person you are learning from, taking ideas from, else, it is called plagiarism.

So go ahead! Knock yourself out !!!!
