Hard Work Won't Make You Successful -- But Doing This Will

I don’t blame anyone who has become frustrated and disillusioned with the working world. It is a huge disappointment to grow up and realize that most of what we’ve been taught about how to be successful is bad advice. We were taught “Just work hard at whatever job you get, and things will work out.” That’s false. Working hard at your job does not get you much. When you work hard at a job where the boss doesn’t value your efforts, all your hard work gets you is taken for granted. Just working hard by itself will exhaust you and shorten your lifespan without any benefits to you. There has to be more to success than merely working hard, or millions of people around the world would be a lot more successful than they are! If you are at work right now, think about the investment of time and energy you are making. Imagine that you only went home to sleep for four hours a night, and gave up all the rest of your personal time to get more work done. Imagine that you practically lived at your de…

ONGC Tripura to start exporting power from Palatana to Myanmar

ONGC Tripura Power Company today said it will start export of power from Palatana project to Myanmar from next month in order to light up the Tamu town, from where insurgent groups operating in the North-East are hiding.
“This is going to be a very important power export and Indian government readily agreed for this. India wants to light up that area, where terrorists operating in North—East are present,” ONGC Tripura Power Company Managing Director Satyajit Ganguly told PTI on the sidelines of the PHDCCI infrastructure conclave here.
The company will export power to Tamu town in Myanmar via Manipur from the 726 MW Palatana project in Tripura, he added.
“The Tamu town, which is just 3 km from Moreh, currently does not have any grid connection and people there use diesel generator sets for power.
“We will export 3 MW of power and this will be sufficient to light up the town. This will help the security agencies in tracking the terrorist movement,” Ganguly said.
Asked by when the export of power is expected to start, he said it is at the last stage of discussion and the Indian government is finalising the exact modalities of the export.
“We are hopeful that it will start soon. Our target is to export power from November 1,” the Managing Director said.
Talking about power export to Bangladesh, Ganguly said it is likely to start from January-February.
“The power to Bangladesh will be exported by Tripura from their share. We will not directly sell it. Tripura gets 196 MW of power from us,” he added.
Currently, transmission lines are being laid down and it will take few months to export it, Ganguly said.
“We are hopeful that by January-February, Tripura will start exporting power to Bangladesh from Palatana project,” he added.
