Time Magazine Publishes “Best of Asia 2010”

May 24th – Time Magazine publishes the “Best of Asia 2010”.
This is an annual feature that tries to capture the best experiences focusing three key themes “Mind” “Body” and Soul.

Time’s correspondents across Asia submit untold stories for this feature. This year’s features cover, China, India, Japan, Hong Kong China, Cambodia, Indonesia, South Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Nepal and Singapore.

I was shocked to see Noting from Pakistan, but I guess we are in the media too much anyway……. justifying anymore space in an international magazine was challenging anyway!

Alarming for Pakistan, a large and exciting country……… No coverage in respect to Mind, Body and Soul!

Entrepreneurship is all about Partnerships and Creative Thinking!

Reading about Entrepreneurship, I was touched by quotes from two top Entrepreneurs, I thought to share these with my blog readers:

"Our success has really been based on partnerships from the very beginning."- Bill Gates

"Nobody talks about entrepreneurship as survival, but that's exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking. Running that first shop taught me business is not financial science; it's about trading: buying and selling."- Anita Roddick, founder of The Body Shop

After reading a book “Mind Map The Ultimate Thinking Tool” by Tony Buzan, who is a famous author, educational consultant and a proponent of the techniques of Mind Mapping and mental literacy, I was estonished to learn the way our brain thinks.

Tony says that

“our brain works with sensory Images with appropriate links and associations radiating from them. Our brain uses the word to trigger these images and associations and produces 3-D picture!”


You can experiment it too - Write a word say “F I R E” watch it and immidiately close your eyes, keep them closed for few seconds and think about it--------- You will not see the word FIRE, but an image of actual burning fire..

What a great learning for me!
