Here is a 15 minute opening speech, as the chief guest at a management conference in Dehradun in India. Building on the colorful theme of Holi festival just gone by, and the onset of a popular cricket season just coming up, I paint a big picture for life and work in 6 colorful charts, like six balls in a cricket over.
The key messages are:
1. Know thyself, as a specific person, and as the most unbounded being.
2. Human beings have complementary sets of needs at the global, interpersonal and the spiritual levels.
3. We need six capabilities of confidence, compassion, creativity, collaboration, courage, and consciousness to flourish in 21st century
4. Do the actions using SEAMS model – Straight, Strong, Enough, Adequate, in the Moment, and Wholeness on the move.
5. The life must be balanced with peace in the world and peace within
6. Finally in the last chart, I exhort the audience to paint life colorfully on the biggest canvas. Live life not just for yourself, but for the civilization and the universe.
