Sounds of Happiness....

Ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaa.... ho ho hooooooo..... he he heeeeeeeee........ hik hik hik.... hak hak hak.....


Well.. I was just kidding. But does happiness really have a sound? My guess is that many people identify it by the "sounds of laughter". But if it didn't have a sound, how would others know when your happy? Does happiness really have to have a sound?

In my life I have seen people expressing joy in various ways. Yes, many express it by laughter. My mother express it a lot by a tear. My dad sometimes express it with a beer. Many express it with gifts. Bosses express it with rewards.. or even bonuses. Lovers express it with kisses... which is very romantic...

Either way it starts and ends with a common result "Happiness". So its a wonderful thing. When your happy, express it. Make a sound. It will manage to put a smile on another person. A smile put away sadness. So for that millisecond everyone around you is happy. :D

What do we expect from superiors...

Posted by Hipo at 1/30/2010 02:20:00 PM 4 comments

It is a known fact that most people leave companies because of their employers. To be more precise, the management. A company doesn't stand alone. Its given life through its management and employees. Thus the heart of the successful company lies in the hands of the management. Hence, there is no such thing as bad companies, only bad management.

I firmly believe that, lack of communication gives rise to all problems. Managers don't appear from 'HELL'. They were all once a normal employee just like you and me. True, character arises through their personality. But all in all, they were all once a bait of another manager who has forgotten their past, knowingly or unknowingly.

What makes them 'DEVILS' is the question we all ask ourselves. There could be many reasons for it. I think its because of the expanded responsibility and the pressure forced on then by their management. But is it a fair reason to be cruel to your subordinates?

During my years of experience with many managers, I believe its not a fair call. Also, its phenomenal that some managers are still the better person they were or even better.

What employees look from their managers is respect and appreciation. The main thing is to develop their morale. Managers should ideally focus on improving and developing their team, rather than mere achievement of work tasks. But surprisingly some tend to be more interested in the content of work than the minds of the people. One of the main reasons why a manager fail is because he/she looses their focus on individuals and get lost between work and deadlines. This would put pressure on the employees leading to lower productivity and low employee morale.

Managers are under lot of stress and pressure from their own superiors. Thus, they tend to take it up on their subordinates. I see this as another reason that brings out the devil in them. But instead they should learn to control their emotions and to control the situations. It will ease the pressure on others.

Once a manager said, most of the issues subordinates have are psychological. That made me think. Isn't everything about psychology? What makes a person do something? I believe it depends on his psychology. That is why people need to be happy. If we are happy we do good things. If we are sad or unhappy we do adverse. It’s the thought which drives people to do things. So I feel its true, and that should not be taken for granted. I strongly believe this is not an bad issue of the employee. Hence, its managers duty to keep employee's mentality inline with happiness, thus in return they earn good results.

Most importantly, mangers should understand their team. The more you understand the better it gets. Continuous feedback is a must. Feedback should not be kept for last, as it gets super uglier with time. The more frequent the feedback is given the more easier and faster the team develops. It is important to know that feedback does not mean criticism. It comprises of both good and bad wrapped up with knowledge which makes it extra tasty. This is where many superiors go wrong. They tend to take feedback as simply a chance to display their intelligence. Ultimately, blame all the 'BAD' on the subordinates and take the 'GOOD' on themselves.

These are just simple tips that managers need to know while working with subordinates. After all, everything is a team effort. A team should not have just individuals. It should be a collection of them who act as an individual. "Synergy" is the success.

The day dawns... But yet it felt as dull...

Did you ever think one moment can change your whole life? Do we ever think of what we say? One word could scatter all your dreams. One moment can change your whole life. one day can take your entire lifetime.
As I woke up today my whole body felt numb... I tried to think... But for once I was out of thoughts... Didn't know how to start or how to live the day... But here I am, at the end of the day... Still feeling lost...
Spent hours looking for a sign... Stared hours at buildings for a shadow appear... Rang hundreds of time for a voice to hear... Forcing hard to hold all hopes which tried to disappears....
As the day darkens out... One figure brought my soul back to life... One word released my tightened heart... Although things ain't the same anymore... I still have a hope... I still have a dream... which I will live till I disappear...

මාගේ දවස ගෙවෙන සැටි...

සතියේ දින පහක්ම ගතවෙන්නේ කාර්යාලයේ පුටුව මතය. එයට කිසියම් වෙනසක් එකතු කරමින් දැන් සතියක පමණ කාලයක සිට මා පුහුණුවක් සදහා යොමු කර ඇත්තේ හුදෙක් මාගේ දියුණුව සදහාමද යන්න තාමත් මට ප්‍රේහෙලිකාවකි. ඒ කෙසේ වෙතත්, සැහෙන ඒකාකාරි බවක් දැනෙන බව නම් පුදුමයක් නොවේ.
ඒ සියල්ලෙන් ගැලවීමක් ලැබෙන්නේ තේ විවේකයේදි සහ දිවා ආහාර ගැනීමේදි පමණි. අපේ වැඩ බැලීම සඳහා එකෙක් වෙනුවට දෙදෙනෙකුම යොදවා ඇත්තේ අප ගැන තිබෙන විශ්වාසයේ අති මහත් බව නිසා යැයි මාහට සිතේ.

It is doubtful if the election was fair and square. But so far no such problems were discussed. Thus, I guess the people have spoken out their choice. Let us all hope for a better future....

නව ආරම්භයක්...

පළමු වතාවටයි මා සිංහලින් වෙබ් පිටුවක ලියන්නේ. අපහසු දෙයක් වුනත් යම් ප්‍රයත්නයක් දැරිමට සිතා පළමු පියවර ගත්තෙමි. මා හුදකලා බව ඉතා තදින් දැනෙන්නට වූයෙන් නොදන්නා බ්ලොගක් ලිවීමට සිතුවේ සිතේ තියෙන දේ කීමට වෙන කිසි කෙනෙක් නැති බැවිනි. හිපෝ නමින් මා හදුන්වා දෙන්නේ කෙනෙකු මා එසේ දකිනා බව කී නිසාවෙනි. මාගේ බලාපොරොත්තු මහත් වුනත් ඉටුකර ගැනීමේ හැකියාව සැක සහිත නිසා සිරුරෙන් එතරම් විශාල නොවුනත් හිපෝවෙක් වාගේ මටත් දැනෙයි. තවදුරටත් අදහස් ලිවීමේ බලාපොරොත්තු ඇතිව මා විවේකයක් ගනිමි.

Have you ever met anyone who is not fake. for me very rarely. To be precise once in my life time for almost 30 years... I met the best person ever about 2 years back. Very intelligent, down to earth and the bestest friend anyone can ever dream of.. As a dreamer .... for me this was a dream come true....
You were always there for me... Such a wonderful human.... The jokes we shared which only the two of us understood... the thoughts we shared... were unbelievable.
