Anger, Disappointment, Dissatisfactions, Helplessness and the Jealousy – A Psychological Musing by LKN

When we look deeply at anger, disappointment, helplessness or even jealousy; the problem isn’t someone else!


It’s we ourselves!

The point is all this happens only because of our shortcomings or over expectations!

The limitations and the disappointments or the dissatisfactions arise because of not achieving the desired results or the desired outcomes and these desires be in any form is an expectation from self – Be it the most alluring designation or the salary or an outcome – These feelings arise because we were short to deliver something to ourselves!


Even when we are dependent on others for outcomes and the disappointment or the dissatisfaction arises it’s because we were short of influencing the person to get the desired outcomes!


Be that childhood rejections of love is because we in some way failed to impress in the right way for that specific person!


So basically the cause of our every negative feeling is the self, basically we were short of something at that walk of life!

However when we look at the bigger picture, we are always short of a thing or the other in our lives.

People who are leaders know how to manage the shortcomings or they act otherwise in a better way and that’s were the talks about “Self Awareness” comes in to picture!


The more better we know ourselves, the better our expectations from self will be and that also channels and influences the desired results.

Also another perspective is our desired results keeps changing, as a kid I used to love the cone ice creams that my dad used to buy me as I grew up my desire of ice creams changed to a huge bucket comparably!

We all evolve and there isn’t negative thing about desiring more, unless you know how to manage the disappointment, dissatisfactions, anger and jealousy. The moment you can’t manage these they multiply so much so that every aspect of life starts getting impacted!

The self awareness is the key to success isn’t overrated, it helps you manage yourself in a better way so that you either know how to reach the desired outcomes or you know how to limit yourself with grace! Mastering self awareness is difficult and it takes a lot of time!

Self Awareness! The Partial Key!

The key is to be brutally true to the inner self!

Now, The questions I ask the self is:

Brutally True to the Inner Self? Is this possible?
Limiting ourself with Grace? Is this possible?
Reach all desired outcomes? Is this possible?

And the Answers that come to my mind are:

It’s 100% possible and attainable only by Gods!
We as humans somewhere sometime loose the calmness of mind and yes this happens frequently as well! 😀

That’s were these feelings and actions are closely related to being human!

Shortcomings – An inseparable trait of any Human!

The only thing practically attainable and that we need to master is walking with grace with all these uncertain logical and psychological complications! That’s an impossible task to attain as well!

Intellectual Property of the Term “Industry 5.0”


It was brought to my notice on 5th December 2021 that one of the individuals has used the term “Industry 5.0” in one of his blogs and considers himself to be the person who coined the term “Industry 5.0” along with a view of my use of the same term in unjustified as it infringes the intellectual property rights.

Out of words and thoughts may be is the apt description of my state at the moment.

Just because someone used the term which was supposed to be obvious in one of the blogs doesn’t make it restrictive to use it.

I have someone claiming they used “Industry 5.0” as a term in their blogs and if I don’t join hands with them – I don’t have the right to use it because it’s their intellectual property.

Well “Industry 5.0” was predefined back in 18th Century with the naming convention that was accepted.

People have false claims for everything, I would appreciate if they had broader picture on the subject in question too.

Anyways I have decided to use my own term for the “Industry 5.0” or “5IR” or “Fifth Industrial Revolution” or “Industrial Revolution V” or “IR V” not that I accept their statement but more off considering the value I have for my time and rejecting these petty issues that are arising.

I will let you know the term I will be utilising for these concepts by Monday 13th December 2021 and this will certainly not be a normal verbiage, will abide the legal values which would make it my own IP abiding at least the basic rules of the IP enforcement.

Thanks for all the support I am getting. This initiative I am doing is not driven by money and more of giving back to the society for what it has given me. Please spare me from things which actually isn’t a matter of concern.

Certifications – Do we need it or Not!

It has become a tedious job for everyone to keep up with the trends, the new skills, new technologies and so much more happening in the Industry.

So is there a necessity to complete a certification?

I agree that only certification is of no use.

Only certification will make you feel the worst embarrassments of life, You will not be able to answer any of the interview questions and by chance even if you crossed that you would not be able to thrive at work.

I also agree that certification with theoretical knowledge is also of no use.

You may undergo a training gain theoretical knowledge and may pass the exam as well. This does certify that you have the knowledge but you don’t know how and where to apply, again you will not thrive here unless you are a fresh graduate and are starting your career. This options gives you the theoretical knowledge enables you to understand on job terminologies and relate to the actual work you are doing. This was my way when I stepped in to the ITSM platform; I only had IT Helpdesk experience and for me to be considered for anything in ITIL I was expected to have the Foundation certification as the least requirement. So this does help and is very conditional and specific to fresh graduates alone.

Certification is only useful when you have hands on experience coupled with theoretical knowledge.

Now for experienced folks, hands on experience is already gained and the theoretical know how’s helps them align their mindset to the holistic view of where and what fits in along with the best way to perform that set activities. Now I may be thriving with the

Hands on experience and theoretical knowledge however we will be missing out on the visibility to the management. Especially when a new project or an activity is initiated the management will not know all of your skill sets unless you are vocal about it. The best way I found it to be vocal is getting my hands on and theory attested by the third entity.

So now I always have an upper hand on the opportunities and also it is easier for me to perform the task, get noticed and keep aiming for higher.

This has been my secret so far, I did start without hands on on the initial days but did have theoretical knowledge and got it attested by the third entity; however as I grew I had to be visible and also prove my ability from time to time. So I don’t have an overseas exposure but I assume logically if you have to be noticed, you need to get attested but that’s only when you have hands on and theory both in place!

Happy Learning!

Measurement of Knowledge

How much is Suffice?

Measurement of Knowledge

So, Now it gets complicated.. what’s that which changes from one person to another, How is it we have multiple understandings and perceptions when everyone has these abilities? And how can we measure the degree of knowledge?

What differentiates the knowledge from one person to another person is the ability to Experience, envision or visualise and apply the knowledge for a particular activity.  

I can give a good example, I have been thought to make coffee, I have all information available on what, how and when the ingredients are supposed to be used and I comprehend this as well. However when I make the Coffee – The Taste differs to a greater extent from what my mom prepares. Normal scenario with everyone and can be applied for different examples. May be I will learn with time and get the same taste as my mom does or it may never be possible.


Now applying has various factors, There is a saying “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result will not lead us anywhere” So its the drive to try different options. The ability to try again and again in different ways until we know what works also gains us knowledge.


Most important factor is the Visualisation, The more capable of visualising the different permutations and combinations accurately the more easier it is to find the right approach to solve a problem.


Finally the experience adds as a cherry on the cake that since we have applied many times and also visualised many possibilities; we can consider ourself knowledgeable in one particular area which we have visualised and applied.

These 3 Factors are again coupled with the Exposure, Passion and Adaptability towards the activity being performed. 


If I have been exposed to making coffee from a very long time and if I have the taste for a Good Coffee – Outcome would be something which is really nice – May not be equivalent to what my mom makes though and yes it will never be as well.


This is one of the reason why people say follow your passion. When you follow your passion, you love it because there is no stress involved mostly because you know about the activity better and the topic is of your interest so you spend more time learning and playing with it rather than considering it as a burden. Thats the secret of many achievers we have.


However does that mean the individual will always be doing the same activity for his whole life, No! Everyone grows and moves to a different activity. So it may or may not be of interest as well. But still we thrive because we tend to adapt to situations. 

We as humans are very adaptable to situations, Just like Chameleons; we tend to change our colours based on our gain. Not being rude here, It’s the fact. We all as humans use everything for our advantage and yes we are adaptable. We did survive on eating bone marrows as well and we are thriving poaching wild animals as well. Our behaviour is dependent on what is being expected from a particular situation. Isn’t it. So the more adaptable we are the more we attempt to different scenarios and get success

So the Winning ingredients that make you stand out are:

  1. Applying
  2. Visualising
  3. Experience
  4. Exposure 
  5. Passion and 
  6. Adaptability

The more we sharpen these skills the more successful we will be and yes the measure of knowledge is dependent on how well you can perform an activity so its again limited to that activity. I mean to say a person can be knowledgeable in few domains or areas of work and life and not in all and everything.

Remember it’s an Ocean of Knowledge out there, Everyone, Anyone or Any Activity will add a little more to the Knowledge what we have.

We will never have suffice knowledge, we will always have something which is unknown and to be explored!

We also have a DIKW Pyramid, I would keep that for another discussion some time in future.
