What Did You learn From The Trip

  • One day, a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. 

    On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"

    "It was great, Dad."

    "Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.

    "Oh yeah," said the son.
     "So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.

    The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden, and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden, and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard, and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on, and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to protect them."
    The boy's father was speechless.

    Then his son added, "Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are."

  • As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages.

    It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not.

    My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

    “Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

    My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

    Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? So make an attempt to grow further. Why shouldn’t we try it again?


    Always look for Simple Solutions

  • One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the case of the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan's biggest cosmetics companies.

    The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soap box that was empty. Immediately, the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason, one soap box went through the assembly line empty.

    Management asked its engineers to solve the problem. Post-haste, the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high- resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soap boxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty.

    No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent whoopee amount to do so. But when a workman was posed with the same problem, did not get into complications of X-rays, etc but instead came out with another solution.

    He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.

    Always look for simple solutions. 
    Devise the simplest possible solution that solves the problem. So, learn to focus on solutions not on problems. 
    "If you look at what you do not have in life, you don't have anything; if you look at what you have in life, you have everything.

    How do I Open or Mount a Bin File Without a Cue File?

  • How do I Open or Mount a Bin File Without a Cue File?

    You downloaded a CD image in a bin format. However, nothing will read it. Here’s what you do.

    You just downloaded the latest, baddest program from some torrent somewhere. However, it’s just a bunch of bin files. You realize these are CD images or ISOs but you don’t know how to run them.

    You just create a text file that is named the exact same thing as your bin file except with a cue extension. In this text file you need this information:

          FILE “yourbinfilenamehere.bin” BINARY
          TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
          INDEX 01 00:00:00


          Say you have a file called gameiso.bin

          1. Right click on a blank space in the same folder
          2. Select new text document
          3. Double click to open your New Text Document.txt
          4. Paste this into the file:
          FILE "gameiso.bin" BINARY
          TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
          INDEX 01 00:00:00

          Make sure you edit gameiso.bin to the exact name of your bin file.

          5. Click File menu
          6. Click Save
          7. Click the Red X to close it
          8. Right click the New Text Document.txt and select Rename
          9. Rename it like your bin file except with a cue extension:

    10. Now any program that can read CD-rom, ISOs (nero, alcohol, etc) should be ready to read the file.

    Made in India

  • There was a Japanese who went to India for sightseeing. On the last day, he hired a cab and told the driver to drive to the Airport.

    During the journey, a Honda drove past the taxi. Thereupon, the man leaned out of the window excitedly and yelled, "Honda, very fast! Made in Japan !!!

    After a while, a Toyota sped past the taxi and again the Japanese man leaned out of the window and yelled, "Toyota, very fast! Made in Japan!"

    And then a Mitsubishi sped past the taxi. For the third time, the Japanese leaned out of the window and yelled, "Mitsubishi, very fast! Made in Japan!"

    The driver was a little angry, but he kept quiet. And this went on for quite a number of cars.

    Finally, the taxi came to the airport. The fare was 800 rupees. !!!!The Japanese exclaimed, "What?? so expensive!"

    There upon, the driver yelled back, "Meter, Made in India VERY VERY FAST !!!!!
