अयं निज: परो वेति गणना लघुचेतसाम्।

उदारमनसानां तु वसुधैव कुटुंबकम्॥

English Translation of Sanskrit quote:

This is mine or (somebody) else’s (is the way) narrow minded people count.
But for broad minded people, (whole) earth is (like their) family.


Having abroad outlook towards the problem at hand, allows one to perceive every perspective of the problem in totality. Many a time a problem presents to us in one way but the actual root cause of the problem is something else. If you treat the problem at its face value, you will get the quick result, but often it is a short term gain. The actual problem may recur again at some time in future. Treating the actual root cause of the problem may prove be a tedious process. It involves a lot of investigational research which may consume both time & money. But it is preferable to have a one time cost of solving the problem than to incur the small cost of solving the problem every time it recurs. By cost I don’t mean just money. Money, time, productivity & even company’s or somebody else’s reputation may be at stake. But while finding the solution, it is recommended that you do it once & for all. There is another perpective to this which in the business world, management gurus’ have already realized. “Think global, Act local” is the mantra of today’s techno-savvy age. This is especially true in the field of business finance. Every move of the financial strategy reflects on to the changing scenario of global financial market. If you want to strengthen your financial position you should do so in accordance with the global practices. You are looking towards a global market in coming future. Aren’t you?
So do I already see you making a new year’s resolution to imbibe this principle of Sanskrit quote in your business expansion plan?
Bon Voyage! Wish you a very happy & prosperous new year of 2006!
