This is the third nugget I am sharing in last few months. As readers show more support, I am excited to bring you more. These ideas come from daily life experiences and learning.
Today’s Nugget: Difference of Opinion is inevitable
When we deal with humans, there is always different opinions. Everyone has a unique ‘thinking‘ based on their upbringing, growing up conditions and teachings from early days. And of course, even siblings don’t have same experiences. The difference of opinion is bound to happen.
There are few things that influence people’s opinion — Human ‘nature‘ of quickly jumping into conclusion (without finding out facts) and their own vested interest. These are the reasons why difference of opinion is inevitable. The only way is to steer the differences towards being more constructive than destructive. With destruction, no one gains, but if the conversation is led in a positive direction then two good ideas mingle together to make it a great one.
To start a constructive debate, the first step is acceptance. Once the problem(differences) is identified and recognized then the solution can be worked out. Everyone should agree to let go a little and work towards that ONE BIG IDEA. Letting go of the personal gains is important in achieving any success over differences.
We see the difference of opinion everywhere – between husband and wife, between parents and child, between friend, in offices and what not. From now one, be determined to steer any differences in a positive direction and come up with a inclusive (agreeable to everyone) idea. Never destroy relationships due to differences.

First Nugget was appreciated a lot. This initiative acts as a reminder. Lessons we learned in the past are still valid. But we tend to forget due to the daily distractions.

Today’s Nugget: The world is not black and White. But GREY!
From childhood days, we are always taught what is right and wrong. This sense of judgment is based on what our parents/teachers/elders were taught by their elders. This sense is deeply engraved in our minds through teachings and education system. We use this to make all kinds of decisions in life. As we grow old, we develop our own sense of judgment, and realize that one cannot decide to an extreme. For example, you had a fight with a neighbor, and you vowed to never speak to her. During an emergency, as a human being, she lends her hand for help. In this case, you cannot definitely say that the person is bad.
If your experience in an incident has been bad, you cannot term it “bad” forever. One has to look with different perspectives. Even after your evaluation, you shouldn’t reach to a conclusion immediately. The conclusion is THE END. If you have already decided, then you are not open for a dialogue/negotiation.
When it comes to people, you must remember that there is nothing black or white. Everyone has their own perspective. To get a better view, one should think herself in other person’s shoes. This will help you to stay away from taking biased decisions. This would also improve your communication skills and have a better relationship with people around.

Who doesn’t love Nuggets! It is a favorite food right?. From today I am starting a new series where occasionally I would be sharing these life nuggets. These tips may not be new but relevant to the modern life. Our parents, grandparents, told us when we were growing up. We just need to dig deep to bring them out. We all agree life is not easy these days. But with those nuggets, you are more prepared to deal with LIFE!
Today’s Nugget : How prepared are you for any kind of uncertainties?
It is important to evaluate how prepared are you for any job loss, medical emergencies or god forbid any sort of uncertain circumstances. How do you deal with something totally unexpected? In today’s world, it is important to acknowledge that nothing is permanent or lasts longer. Things may be looking up now but times change. Are you prepared for future?!
Especially when you are approaching middle age, responsibilities are higher and opportunities are less. One has to be mindful of not only expenses but retirement planning. And you don’t plan when you have a problem knocking at the door. One has to be prepared for anything unforeseen. One has to be strong and resilient and be prepared for any forthcoming challenge. Don’t be afraid, don’t be intimidated, just be prepared that unexpected is not unexpected anymore.
That was the thought for the day! Keep coming back for more nuggets.
