The Second Chance


It is true that we carry the pain of past and postpone the most valuable plans for the future. But future is unseen, unknown and still  worst Uncertain. We never know the breaking point between  present and future. So don't we fear postponing certain decisions that are more apt to be taken today ?

Here are three things that I have been putting off for the future and would do right now if given a chance.

1. Child Investment  Plan: This is the first thing on my priority list. But I keep on pushing it to next month for want of time and research. I understand how important it is to plan the future of my child when the time is right and favorable. There are a plethora of options but I want to sit together for weeks and pick the right one for me. I wish to get that luxury of time to gift something fruitful to my child when he is a grown-up.  This surely needs my immediate attention.

2. Pursue PhD degree: I have been a lover of knowledge and books. I cant live without learning. It is one my most desired dreams to have a PhD degree to my name. Blame my laziness or lack of time that I am yet to think about taking a step further in this regard. I aspire and long for these three letters as a suffix to my name.  

3. Touring God s Own Country Kerala : I am a Keralite who has spent most of his life in the cities of North India. But  Kerala still beats hard and deep inside my heart. My friends from other states know better about my Native land. I at once want to travel the length and breadth of God's Own Country and satiate myself spiritually.  I know I need to this several times before I die. 

To have your bucket list is one thing and to complete it is altogether a different thing. I thank MaxLife Insurance  for giving an opportunity to reignite my priority list. Because when you have the goals right before your eyes it becomes easy to chase.

I am participating in the #SecondChance activity at BlogAdda.com in association with MaxLife Insurance.

New Trigger. Chat Quikr


The new generation of smart Buyers and Sellers have a common meeting point called Quikr. This forum is a one stop kiosk to Buy and Sell all your needs under a single roof of Symbiosis . If you have less space at home to stuff new things, you need not to excuse the thought. Because the forum also caters for selling off your used but valuable items that million others are aspiring to own. So what next ?  Bech Qikr !!!

I am an avid user of this wonderful application and proud to admit that some of my best buys are the outcome of Quikr.com . Recently I came to know that quiker has added yet another useful tool to enable chat between users to communicate with each other at their convenience and request more details about the product or service, without requiring a single phone call. The tool is sure to bring revolution in the field of dealing and negotiation.

3 Reasons Why I would prefer Chat over a Phone Call       

 

1.  Ease of Time : On week days I usually get free by 9 pm or so. I do not feel comfortable in talking to a complete stranger inquiring about product and negotiating its price. I would rather prefer a comfortable chat over which I can ask the seller about product details and price settlement.  If the person on the other side is online we can have a live chat else he always has an option to reply me as per his convenience of time and commitment. It would save me from the embarrassment of  calling someone at unwanted point of time.

2. Ease of Negotiation : I am a shy person by nature and this shyness increases manifold when it comes to interact with strangers. I remember many a times I hesitated in negotiating price with a seller, either because of my shyness or ego. I know I am not the only one with this syndrome. But chat is a good option to shed such inhibitions and come out openly for a healthy bargaining. 

3. Better Understanding of the product:  Details like model number, date of purchase and technical specifications are easy to be communicated on chat than over a phone call. You can be more precise in asking the queries and get accurate replies as chat messages on either your phone or desktop. After thorough research on chat option you can spare the final word of deal on the phone.
