Enjoy the Coffee

A group of alumni of a reputed college, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: “If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for each of you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and were eyeing each other’s cups. Now if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn’t change. Some times, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it.”

So, don’t let only the cups drive you… enjoy the coffee!!!!!!

i-Fetch by Ideafarms

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and it’s a clever way of bringing the latest news and content from favourite websites, without you having to revisit the websites to check what’s new. When users subscribe to an RSS feed, they’re sent the title and a short summary of the content from the website that produced the feed.

To subscribe to the RSS feeds, users need RSS Feed Reader like i-Fetch, a product of my buddy Daksh’s company Ideafarms. i-Fetch, a feature rich application, handles information from various sources on the internet and provides a consolidated view to it.

I’ve been hooked to i-Fetch, for quite sometime now. i-Fetch is kewl, handy & is definitely a must have for geeks and everyone else who browses endlessly on the internet.

i-Fetch has got some really special features but for me OPML Support & Archiving Features are really kool.

Give it a go at http://www.ideafarms.com/products/ims.htm
An easier way is to google “i-Fetch + ideafarms” (minus quotes).
