My Eclat Coach: Should You Respond To Everything?





This is a difficult one for me.
I dont have any empirical data to base my theory on, but I guess you can call it coming of age.
If you asked me this question 10 years back or even 5 I would have said an empathic 'YES'
Today, with all the so called experiences behind me, I am not so sure.

Some people might argue that to not engage life is akin to refusing to live.

The fact that this is a 3-D interactive set up is what makes all this so real. I know, this is almost on the verge of some spiritual discourse, but if you can spare another minute those guys aren't so off the mark.

You have heard of 'pick you battles' or 'doing nothing is also doing something' or the one I have seen as a poster in many an educational institutes, 'Give me the courage to change the things I can, the serenity to accept the ones I cant and the wisdom to know the difference'.  All of these and more are arguing your right to disengage once-in-a-while.

There will be things you have no control over (for the ones who are firm believers in destiny to the smallest detail, you have control over nothing) but I am talking about things you seemingly have control over, could do something about and taking that thought further can choose to do nothing.

will you belittle yourself by doing nothing? will you belittle the task or the individual you are ignoring?

will you feel sometime later in life that if only I had not let that simple digression go unpunished, the larger damage could have been averted?

what do you feel?

Do you ignore many a things on a daily basis?

If you do, then how do you decide?

On what parameters do you choose?

IDEAS| TECH| WEB| Guests Behaving Badly

EDITOR| This is pretty neat. Something informal exists at the metro hotels in India with skippers, but even then I remember a case where in a guest in Mumbai (2004) took atleast 3 luxury hotels for a ride.

This could be the answer.
The service is in Australia at the moment.

From the website

Guests Behaving Badly (GBB) provides the short-term accommodation industry with the ability to share information on bad guests while complying with all aspects of the National Privacy Principles as defined under the Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988.

GBB Members access our online database allowing them to identify guests with a recorded history of anti-social, intimidatory and destructive behaviour whilst staying in short-term accomodation. GBB Members can also lodge verified complaints against hotel customers within the database.

EDITORIAL| Why Online Media still has a long way to go.

An article on tripadvisor.com and the importance of online reviews got me checking the site again (the last time I found a Taj Hotel in Bathinda)

Here is something new from the same site.

A hotel - Shanti Home is ranked the 2nd in Delhi. what is even better is that the hotel (I am sure its great, though I personally havent used it and welcome comments if you have or know about it) says in the location that since they are close to the Metro Station it is easily accessible from the Airports. I dont think that is accurate.

Now, with information like this I am still not giving tripadvisor the importance it seems to be getting the world over. Find a way to take care of this, then we can talk.
