MEMO FROM NARA


 
Auditing is done year after year in every government organization in order to see whether the allotted amount of budget money is properly spent according to the rule book. It is indeed a good practice to make the employees to work in accordance with stipulated rules. In a way, auditing advises the employees to follow the rules strictly in spending public money. There is a set of people employed by the organizations. These people are good in keeping the rules in their finger - tips. Invariably the team asks for all papers, and evidences for the purchases of goods. Quotations, comparative statements, papers on placement of orders, and entry in stock books are some important documents to satisfy the auditors. In most of the time they find some mistakes – minor or major – and make an audit report. I feel that it is good to have the report for improving the operations in future. Spending public money needs to be audited and accounted.

Similarly, self-audit is also essential for everyone. Self-audit is done by every individual not by officially appointed auditors. Some of us do it very frequently to balance our family budget. Also the self-audit tell us how to rectify the mistakes committed in the past. Thus it certainly helps to improve our life-style.

One important aspect about self-auditing is to improve our time management. Time spent will not come back. So, efficient use of time certainly helps us to do lot of things, in short period of time. It also will point out how much we procrastinate our activities. When we think of our strength and weakness, we ourselves will realize how much we will be able to carry on our activities efficiently and effectively.

Every one of us has potential skills create new things. Self-audit should indicate such potentials to put to work. Similarly self-audit can tell us our weakness regarding health and also knowledge. If the health is weak or poor one has to look into it with medical check-up and take appropriate treatments. Since health problems are the ones which make us inactive and prevent our progress in life. For a healthy person updating his/her knowledge in terms of skill development is absolutely essential in this modern age. Since knowledge explosion is occurring every day we need to update our knowledge with the new. It in fact helps in improving our work efficiency.

Self-audit need not be annual. It can be monthly or even shorter period of time. Self-mistakes can be safely corrected if the audit is done more frequently. Self-audit is a lead to self-help. Therefore it is a good idea to practice self-audit by every individual to improve his/her life style.

FOUR LESSONS OF LIFE...




1. Never take down a fence until you know why it was put up.
2. If you get too far ahead of the army, your soldiers may mistake you for the enemy.
3. Don't complain about the bottom rungs of the
ladder;
they helped to get you higher.
4. If you want to enjoy the rainbow, be prepared to endure the storm.

BENEFITS OF TRAVEL...


 
There are more benefits of packing your bag and travelling.

1. Improves Your Social Skills

Meeting new people is one of the great upsides of travelling. Whether it's chatting up your roommate, making small talk with your seat-mate on a train or having a lively discussion at a local bar, you will be forced to improve your social skills (especially if you're travelling solo). If new situations tend to make you anxious, travelling is a sure way to take steps toward reducing that anxiety.

 2. Reduces Stress

 Taking time off is an obvious way to recharge and reduce stress levels. But while staying home and resting is a worthy use of your time off, travelling removes you from your everyday life and lets you truly escape. Travelling lets you put aside your daily responsibilities and focus on yourself for a moment. When you return home you'll feel refreshed and have the motivation you felt drained of before you left.

 3. Accomplishes Goals

 Having a travel "to-do" list and crossing things off that list keeps you motivated and positive. That list can include things like visiting certain locations or accomplishing something such as climbing a mountain or becoming conversational in the language of your next destination. Achieving those goals also increases confidence and gives a sense of success.

 4. Makes You More Flexible

 Sometimes things don't go according to plan while travelling. Maybe your flight is cancelled or it rains the day you're scheduled to go on an epic outdoor adventure. It's okay -- there are other flights to take (or trains, or buses) and maybe on that rainy day you'll discover a hidden bookstore to explore or an adorable cafe to experience. Travelling helps you to be more flexible and open minded, making you more zen in your everyday life.

 5. Teaches To Be More Patient

Travel can involve a lot of waiting. You'll wait in lines, for flights or at restaurants. Learning how to cope with those waits, how to make conversation with those you're waiting with and how to stay calm in frustratingly slow situations will teach you how to remain patient and calm in all situations.

DESIRE...




Every manifestation of will is preceded by the desire to act. You must desire something before will can take action. In order to desire something, you must believe that you will gain a measure of satisfaction from it.
 Anything you do, from the moment you wake up in the morning until the time you close your eyes to sleep in the evening, is precipitated by desire. Nothing is done that does not have a degree or more of desire behind it. To desire something is to feel there will be a measure of satisfaction after the getting of the thing. You cannot desire a thing unless you feel there will be some satisfaction in the attainment of that desire.

 

FUNNY QUESTIONS...




If money doesn't grow on TREES,
then why do banks have BRANCHES ?
 
If it’s true that we are here to HELP others,
What are others HERE for ?
