An Innocent Letter

Found this innocent letter somewhere online. Its really interesting. It shows deep gratitude, profound love and submission to the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Its probably of the time when he appealed for monetary contribution by the masses for the independence movement. Written by a fifth grader, sending in his contribution with great passion.

Initiating Vertical Farming/ Vertical Landscaping/ Live Wall/ Herb Wall/ Kitchen Garden/ Vertical Garden...

Been trying to gather material, ideas and energy to build a little live wall for quite some time. Thanks God... I did it... A herb collection for the love of my life, fresh herbs within her arms reach, right outside the kitchen, on the boundary wall :) Installed it with my own hands and planted the seedlings. Almighty showered the best rains one can ask for the plants to grow, with beautiful intermittent sunlight periods. If the plants grow and stay healthy, I plan to gain more yield than it is currently designed give.

Currently, salad leaves, mint, onion and garlic have sprung up... changing weather will help coriander and radish to grow.

Proper sunlight is very necessary for these delicate and aromatic herbs to grow. Currently, these are under observation, and if I find that they are not getting a proper sun-lit period, I'd opt for an artificial light supporting photosynthesis. Feeling accomplished! :)

Hoping to expand the productive capacity soon!

That's how it works!

The list is interesting. Since I didn't formally write down my new year resolutions this year, the following list serves me good. Its inspiring for the entire year and as generally shaping up your life style and work.

Get used to the three “-ty’s.” Ambiguity. Uncertainty. Volatility… Projects collapse. Money evaporates. Customers go wiggy. Get over it. That’s the way it works.

Learn. …Become a learning machine. Ask questions. Take smart people to lunch. Read. Read some more. Take classes.

Failing is OK. Not failing is not OK. If you don’t flop every so often, you’re not trying hard enough.

Guard your calendar. Make sure your time is focused on your one or two top priorities. Ask yourself: “Is this how I want to be spending my time right now?” Remember: you are your calendar. So treat your calendar with respect.

Be paranoid. The good times won’t last. 

Don’t be paranoid. The bad times won’t last.

Never say up front that you can beat a deadline. Just turn your work in early and look like a hero. Related advice (which is ancient but unassailable): Underpromise, overdeliver. 

Be quick. But don’t hurry. This one isn’t mine. It comes from the legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden. Read it again. Think about it. Make sense, huh?

Take the Sunday night test.So this Sunday night, when you go to sleep, ask yourself: “Am I suffering from Sunday night dread?” If so, you might be doing something wrong. But if you’re not getting it – if you’re lying there in bed thinking, “You know, I sorta like this. I’m not dreading tomorrow. I’m actually looking forward to it” – then you’re probably on the right path.
