Retrospective 2012

So, 2012 ends. I survived- not from the doom’s day but from the turbulent market condition.
2011 was a scholastic endeavor for me with 3 global certifications and new assignments in job.
2012 was more on implementation and innovation though prominent failure shines in my personal life along with the failed commitments to my family and friends.
But my never ending quest for knowledge contributes this year also. I dedicated this year to “Design”. Attended a Stanford design school workshop and by the end of the year earned a Coursera certification on “Design and Artifacts “by Prof Karl T Ulrich (Vice Dean of Innovation and the CIBC Professor of Entrepreneurship and e-Commerce at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.)
I have started writing my blog this year and planning to write a book next year .. 🙂
Looking forward a brand new year….


How a Prison Fighter won a tournament by adapting changes

BoycaThis is all about a movie. –“Undisputed III”. I have seen it a few months back. Want to share the interesting story with you.

Yuri Boyka is sent to prison where he is joined by a diverse group of prison fighters from around the world. The match was fixed and authorities don’t want Boyca to win. Though the fighters are allowed one hour each day for training, Boyca is deprived off that and sent to field for hard physical labor.

Boyka reveals his strategy for turning the situation around: use the hard labor as part of the training. The US Marine slogan,-“Improvise, Adapt, Overcome”.

Boyca changed his situation. He engineered his disadvantage to advantage and won the game.

This is winning all about.
