Outsourcing...

Came across an interesting phrase at work today... just thought on the same lines and came up with this post.

It is about Check lists...The hints on a piece of paper or a scratch pad that come handy when you think your brain is jam-packed with things to do.

I can recall a few main checklists that we have all often heard of or used ourselves:

Travel Check list
Enclosure Check list for a University application
Interview Check list
Shopping List
Banking Check List

I am sure there are a lot more, but all of us would have used atleast one of these checklists..

This minute, when u are reading this post, there would definitely be a number of other thoughts running on your mind...

Have we ever thought what we are exactly doing when we use a check list? According to my friend's remark, we are just 'Outsourcing Thinking'.. :)

T-shirt thoughts

Some T-shirts make u smile, no matter what mood your mind is in.This afternoon, I came across one such shirt with this saying:

Girl Friends are like medicines, they come with expiry date...

Not sure how many people saw a quick smile on my face, but I couldnt help thinking:

Probably the designer never thought of Ayurveda medicine and never believed that there are Girl friends who do graduate to 'Wives' and can still be 'Girl friends'. :)

For folks who are wondering about the reference to Ayurveda, it is a form of medication that is practiced mostly in South India. Most medicines in it, as far as I have known, do not have expiry date.
