How out-of-the-box thinking helps in our life

I have come across several instances that clearly prove that thinking differently helps our life to a great extent. That is the reason experts advise that all of us should look at things with a new perspective and try to do them differently. I wish to give a few instances in which my out-of-the-box thinking helped me in my life.

I was working for a company that used to buy iron ore and export the ore to various countries. Mine owners were sending ore from their mines to our stock-yard by lorries. We had a weigh-bridge in which the gross weight of the lorries would be weighed first. Then, the lorries would dump the ore at the yard and come back to the weighbridge where the empty lorries would be weighed. The difference between the two weights would give the weights of the ore dumped in the yard. 
For making payments to the suppliers, the company opened Letters of Credits in the bank. Suppliers would come to us and take what are called Weight Certificates. We used to write the weight ce…

Parenting experts point out the academic performance of children can greatly be improved if parents involve themselves appropriately in the learning process. In fact, it's the duty of parents to support and if possible, guide their children in their learning. But at the same time, parenting experts caution that they should not overdo things also.

Why Companies Should Do SEO Marketing Continuously

The commercial world is not the same as what it was a few decades back. We can boldly say that it is the Internet that has brought about this major change. More particularly, the marketing efforts companies make lean more on the Net than on the traditional methods they used to follow. This is because they will be able to access hundreds of thousands of potential clients through the power of the Net.  Further, companies can know if the marketing strategies they adopt yield the results they desire to have, again thanks to the concept of online marketing.

Companies can never ignore the fact that while they are trying to do SEO marketing, their competitors are not keeping mum. They will also be adopting SEO techniques for marketing their pr…
