Greetings! to everyone who is reading this blog. This is my first ‘serious’ attempt at blogging. I had tried a couple of times before but failed to move on after my first attempt. ‘Blogging’ simply didn’t excite me in the past. Despite having a friend’s circle consisting of chronic bloggers, I never really felt the necessity, until now.
Its been more than a week since I joined my new job, (infact my first job!) and the fact that it specializes in providing Social media services to Enterprises makes my foray into the Blogging world and reviving my Twitter account, all the more necessary.
As of now, planning to write this on a weekly basis. Will talk about all those things that are dear to me and hope you can connect to it in some way or the other. Will try not to run into pages and pages and keep it concise. But there might be occasions where I might just lose track and keep on typing and typing. (Just hope that does not happen too often!)
I’ve named my blog- The Untrodden Path. There is a deep meaning behind it. I’m sure all of you have come across Robert Frost’s famous poem- ‘The Road not Taken’. The last 2 lines of that poem –
“I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference”
have been a great source of inspiration to me. Every individual in this world comes across a certain crossroads in his life a number of times, where he/she has to make a critical decision and choose from one of the few paths offered. Of course making a choice among the available options takes a lot of thinking, research and what not. But, at the same time it also takes courage to choose the less-opted path or walk on the less traveled path or simply the untrodden path. It involves a lot of risk and the uncertainty surrounding it makes it all the more adventurous.
The courage to take the untrodden path is a hallmark of Entrepreneurs, Leaders, Pioneers, Inventor, Daredevils, Discoverers and all other kinds of Go-Getters.
‘The Untrodden Path’ refers to- being Innovative, being Unconventional, being Unorthodox, being Distinct, being a Non conformist, being Unique, being Different… and that is what I believe in and that’s what I am!
