Start Right

This weekend I decided to spend 30 minutes watching 3 TED videos I had bookmarked a while ago.

I thought I should summarize the points into this blog in a flow which makes sense to the time-pressed retards we are fast becoming!

In Short, for folks with just 5 minutes –  start-right with this 3 page ppt. Courtesy TED.


Video 1 spoke about Success through 8 points

Crisp and to the point – It would be hard to find anomalies to the above 8 points if you look at successful people in history.


Video 2 – To me success is about conveying the right ideas well so that people will listen. To speak and for others to stop, sit and take notice is a both a prerequisite and an after effect of success. The video below speaks about a few important things to be aware of while putting forth your thoughts in the open. Again crisp and clear.


Video 3 was all about Motivating people to work or achieve in the 21st century tasks which are not so mundane and far from the one goal, one approach traditional tasks. People are often required to innovate even in the day to day jobs they take care.  Old and a bit 2 buckets when it comes to motivating people yet it is a gold to bookmark and revisit.



Hope you would find some words of wisdom in these 3 short videos.

“What’s in a name?

“What’s in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.”

Why this question now? Of late my friends have been asking me to explain the funda regarding my strange ID – LogRCubed. It is being used in my blog name, domain ids, my GitHub Id, my tags etc. So what exactly is this? But before all that what is a literature post doing here. I am sheepishly trying to justify the keywords in my blog name – LogRCubed, a whole brain, Cipher and my domain name –!

I stumbled upon this idea during my school days while learning logarithms. People have been calling me Threelok, ThreeLog, Trilock, Trylock etc. All kinds of variations. One of these misspelled representation or mispronunciation gave me this idea to think of my name as a mathematical expression, logarithmic expression to be precise, the derivation of which is given below.

LogRCubed = Log [R]3
= 3 Log R
= 3 Lok R
= Three-Lok R
= Trilok R

Hence the Name and the Strange ID! Phew… There starts my love for name mangling, ciphers and being whole brain. Someone who loves both art and code to the same extent.

So again, what is in a name? Many a things, most importantly “being you”…!
