Serve it fresh!

Sometimes, problems don’t require the ‘best solution’. They just need a ‘new’ one!”


Recently, I asked one of my former colleagues to mentor one of my dear ones. She was surprised because she herself considers me as a mentor and thus asked why I wouldn’t mentor the boy…

I said “You must have heard the story on why, in a circus or zoo, a huge elephant is tied to a small wooden peg hammered into the ground; and still he doesn’t run away because he had tried it when he was a baby and had not succeeded”.

She said “Yes! I have heard the story. But how come that explains your point?

I said “In his case…I represent that small peg of his life”.


Yes! Sometimes, when people need to make a fresh start, they need fresh faces around. Not because the old faces are not good, but because… old faces remind them of…their own ‘old-selves’.
