Balancing Communication between the Outside and the Inside World

No matter whether you are a teacher, a sales professional, a bank executive, an actor, or a politician, effective communication is the number one quality most of the employees want to have. It’s a quality without which growing up the ladder in our careers seems to be impossible. Not just professionally, personally too, communication plays a very important role...

Just think for a moment, how often does it happen that you are busy doing some important piece of work at home or in your office and suddenly an SMS in your inbox, a ping on Whatsapp, a notification on Facebook, a tweet by some celebrity you follow, a picture posted by your close one on Instagram, a phone call by a friend or just a habit of regularly checking your phones disturbs your concentration and makes you lose the focus from work within a few minutes? Pictures and sounds of different types continue to invade our mind making the whole body restless...
