Recently, there used to be this ad by an Indian telecommunication company, which goes by the name of Docomo…here is a sample, (though I guess figuring out the language won’t be so easy !!)
The underlining factor is keep things simple. Like no one wants an elaborate wedding card minus the invite !!!
And fact is, when do you become a man, my son ?! ….
.…only when life get’s less complicated and more to the point !!
In reality, most of the time we prefer other’s to read between the lines and our expressions and then figure our minds out. This may work some of the time, though most often it doesn’t.
Face the facts; everyone is busy and each person has their own individual bundle of problems. So figuring out others’ may not always work out..and that’s when it’s time to, keep it simple !!
If you are missing someone…give them a call or tweet or message. Don’t wait for them to do it and then latter worry about the lack of keeping in touch. Just do it !!!
If you want to meet someone….just invite them instead of hanging in the alleys and in their shadows or the classical “oops I’m sorry I bumped into you” act, to get noticed.
If you want to be understood, just explain. If the other side is willing to hear you out or not. Else even an email works fine. Don’t carry the weight in your mind.
If you have questions, ask them; instead of giving in way to confusion and a series of “what if’s” and surprised looks !!
If you like it..or even if you don’t; say it if you are supposed to !! No point in keeping someone in the dark.
And if you want something..you have to ask for it !!
For only the seekers shall find it, those who ask shall get answers and those who knock, will know whether the door will open or not !!
Besides, many don’t know what’s on your mind. Expressing them is better than expecting others to always figure you out. Think of it, when you take so much of time to think of the “no’s” and you already figure that you have them; why not simply take the risk to get a “yes” too !!
All of us just have one life, so why not just keep it simple ?
