The Science of "Sleeping on It"

Experts say if you want to harness sleep's problem-solving powers to the fullest, think about your dilemma just before bed

Thomas Edison appreciated a good midday snooze, and the great inventor's quirky napping routine has become legend. By most accounts, Edison liked to settle into a comfortable chair with a ball bearing in each hand, and metal pie pans at his feet. After dozing for a while, Edison's hands would relax and the ball bearings would clatter into the pans, waking him up....Read More

On Humility...

Cricketer Rahul Dravid Was Honoured With a Doctorate Degree By The University Of Bangalore, Which Rahul Dravid Gracefully Returned. ...Not Only Did He Give Back The Degree, But He Also Gave A Wonderful Speech; He Said "My Wife Is A Doctor, She Has Spent Countless, Sleepless Nights And Days To Get This Degree."

"My Mother Is A Professor Of Arts, She Has Waited A Long Fifty Years For Her Degree With Perseverance. I Worked Hard To Play Cricket, But I Didn't Study That Much , So How Come I Accept This Degree?"

Einstein Was offered the Prime Ministership by The Israeli Government in 1952. Einstein Politely Said, "I Am An Inexperienced Student Of Physics. What Do I Understand About The Governance and Administration of a State !!!

Grigori Perelman, The Russian World-renowned Mathematician, Returned the Field Medals in 2006 and a large Sum of Money, Regarded as the Equivalent of Nobel Prize in the Field Of Mathematics

He said

We Had a Poverty Driven Childhood in Our Family

We had to manage in a very calculative manner to save mother's earnings. May be, that's the reason why I was able to develop a little skill in mathematics since childhood

Since that phase of poverty is not there anymore in my life, what do I do with so much of money?" Seeing the humility of these people, one has to bow down in respect

These humble and down to earth people remind us over and over again that being humble does not mean one gets less dignified in the eyes of the society, rather it portrays in them a much larger than life image

As there is a saying 'Sky is the limit for humility while there is no limit at all to stoop down to any level.

2. Vita Coco Won the Coconut Water Wars, but an Old Rival Is Planning a New Battle

For almost a decade, Mike Rampolla was out of the game.

In 2004, Rampolla founded coconut water brand Zico, launching one of the more underrated business rivalries of the decade against Michael Kirban's coconut water brand, Vita Coco. Both companies launched in the same year, in New York City, and quickly began knocking off each other's strategies. The two brands--and founders--found themselves constantly going toe to toe, eventually becoming the top two companies in a U.S. market now worth $1.2 billion.

After nine years, Rampolla fulfilled a dream he'd held since the very beginning by selling his company to beverage giant Coca-Cola. Then, two things happened. First, Zico's sales slid under Coke's ownership for years until last October when word finally leaked that the company planned to discontinue the coconut water brand. And second, oddly enough, shortly after the sale went public, Kirban and Rampolla became real-life friends.

It's a new development in an old rivalry reignited: On New Year's Eve, Rampolla closed a deal to re-purchase Zico from Coke and re-engage in the coconut water business. Read our story to learn how Rampolla's return could mark the greatest challenge of both entrepreneurs' careers. ...Read More

But they didn't stop there. After realizing that managers were important, they embarked on a quest to uncover all the behaviors that made some more effective than others.

3. Crowdfunding: Be a part of India's fast-emerging powerful form of social investing

In 1885, when the Statue of Liberty was shipped from France to America in pieces, the US was unable to raise funds for its pedestal. But thanks to a newspaper campaign and small donations by 160,000 donors, the base was finally built - through one of the country's first major 'crowdfunding' projects, albeit the fancy term didn't exist then. Modern crowdfunding, interestingly, is often traced to an internet campaign in 1996-97 by British Rock band Marillion. The band's fans raised $60,000 to sponsor their US tour. The success of the campaign laid the foundation for platforms like Indiegogo and Kickstarter in the US....Read More
