Four Lessons from Harvey Specter

Levi Talks (Travels & Thoughts)

Suits, an American tv show, is charming viewers around the globe not just because of good-looking actors and credible performances but mainly because of the tenable script.

Harvey Specter, the youngest senior partner of the Pearson-Hardman law firm and best closer in New York, gives us lessons about winning life’s games. Here are my top 4 favorite lines.

1. “Win a no win situation by rewriting the rules.”

Challenge the game. Defy limits. Reshape perspective. What is true today, maybe false tomorrow. The rules today can change tomorrow. There are so many ways of playing any game. This is fearless and creativity, have it in your system.

Winners do not wait for windows of opportunities. They create them. Even a 1% chance can deliver victory.  Sometimes what we just need is to step back, look at the whole picture and figure out the rest.

2. “What are your choices when…

Test of Friendship

Levi Talks (Travels & Thoughts)

Misunderstanding among friends does happen. We get annoyed, hurt or dismayed. It is part of the bond that keeps the glue of friendship stronger and lasting. Petty things into a monstrous clash or harbored ill feelings into a nasty fight.

Up in the beautiful Adirondacks I visited the Adirondack museum a few years back and they had a craftsman there for a week displaying traditional black ash basket making. His name is Jack Leadley and his specialty is making traditional Adirondack pack baskets all by hand. He has made them for 40 years plus and makes the finest pack baskets in the world.  He also makes snowshoes, fishing creels and does bentwood chairs and original oil and watercolor artworks.  His workshop is South of Indian Lake in the SE Adirondacks and is way back in the woods.  He has a pond he made to soak brown ash trees so that they can be peeled then pounded and stripped into thin ash bands suitable for weaving baskets.  He has a video out on “Inside the Blue Line with Jack Leadley” and “How to Make an Adirondack Pack Basket” both available through…

Respect the security guard and his work… but why?

Your Well Wisher Program


Generally visiting any apartment or office, I used to wait for a while at the entrance.  I have to authenticate my identity to the person called Security Guard. I am bit more observant of the Security Guard and that observations lead me to respect the security guard.

Every security guard has a very pleasing gestures and etiquettes. They welcome with a greeting, and ask in a very respectful manner. I don’t understand some of the visitors don’t listen to what security guard is asking. Few visitors believe it is time waste to answer his questions or wait for a while.  I feel the job of security guard is bit difficult, struggling and go for long hour duty.

I don’t have to say but I see design of security guard room is more like a dog’s house. Most of the security guard rooms are very small sized with no comfort…
