We are no longer teaching if what we teach us remains more important than who, how and why we teach.

Teaching at tertiary level is not about doing research alone. Let us learn to help people with more than just their jobs; help them with their lives." — Jim Rohn

The responsibilities of a faculty member are well defined which are as follows:
1. Instructing students

2. Checking answer scripts

3. Preparing question papers

4. Invigilating in the exam hall

5. Counseling and guiding students

6. Managing students in the classrooms

7. Managing students outside the classroom

8. Doing research work

9. Preparing oneself for classes

10. Studying

11. Advising and doing registration

12. Submitting grades in the software

13. Working for different committees such as journal committee, event management committee, exam committee and so on and so forth

14. Designing syllabi and course materials

To me, teachers are free will agents. They love to do work on their own. So, they do their responsibilities of their own accord. I personally feel very pressured and sometimes I feel like leaving teaching profession when i have to check lots of answer scripts of quizzes, mid-term and final exams and do invigilation in the exam halls. But at the end of the day when i see my students are really learning something and discovering their true potentials and improving, i feel inspired to enjoy teaching.

Over to all for comments..

Education should be filled with joy, creativity, and wonder; Not pain, stress and intimidation.

Motivation / Warren Buffet's Tips for Entrepreneurial Success

Warren Buffet's 10 tips for success

1. Find your passion
You are lucky in life when you find it and you can’t guarantee you are going to find it on your first job, but once you find it, your life will change. Take the job you would take if you were independently wealthy, you are going to do well at it.

2. Hire well
It’s no secret that hiring is one of the biggest challenges of managing and growing a creative team. Remember that your people are your greatest asset.

3. Don’t care what others think
“Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.” – Lao Tzu. It’s normal to want to be liked and accepted.  However, this leads to people worrying too much about what others are thinking about them. This kind of excessive worrying can have a negative effect on your life. Do not let it prevent you from living your life to the fullest potential. Once you give up caring about other people’s opinion and thoughts, you will discover the real you, and that freedom will be like taking a breath for the first time.

4. Read, read, read
If you‘re one of countless people who don’t make a habit of reading regularly, you are missing out countless opportunities daily: The more you read the smarter you get. I remember reading last month that if you read one book a month on the same topic for 2 years, you will become part of the top 5 % experts in that topic, and that’s the real power of reading. Here are some of the books that Warren Buffett recommends – “Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street” by John Brooks, “The Essays of Warren Buffett” by Warren Buffett, “The Intelligent Investor” by Benjamin Graham

5. Have a margin of safety
The majority of investors will encounter various stumbling blocks and bad luck over their investing lifetime; a margin of safety will provide them with some protection in terms of preservation of capital when the going gets tough.

6. Have a competitive advantage
“Capitalism is all about somebody coming in and trying to take the castle. Now what you need is a castle that has durable competitive advantage” – Warren Buffet

A competitive advantage is an advantage over competitors gained by offering consumers greater value, either by means of lower prices or by providing greater benefits and service that justifies higher prices.

7. Schedule for your personality
Warren Buffet doesn’t like meetings, but he is building his businesses around his personality, doing it the way he prefers and enjoys. So find your productive mode, find your pace, find the sweet spot. You will be most productive once you find what works best for you.

8. Always be competing
The biggest business killer – complacency. Once you get that feeling of self-satisfaction, that’s when it gets dangerous, that’s when your competitors will run you over. So always strive for growth, always be on the move, otherwise your competition is going to outcompete you!

9. Model success
You can’t do it on your own, get that out of your head. There is one thing that successful people have in common; mentors. Having a mentor is said to be one of the most important keys to success. I believe this is especially true early on but is imperative at any point in your career.

10. Give unconditional love
In his profile for The Great Minds of Investing, Mr. Buffett speaks candidly about the most important reason for his success: the love and support he received from his father, Howard Buffett, a U.S. Congressman whom he revered. “My dad believed in me,” Mr. Buffett explains. “What I basically got from my father is unconditional love. Unconditional love is huge in this world … Whatever I did, he was all for it. It didn’t matter how much money I made or anything like that. It was just, ‘Do your best in whatever you take on.’ ”

I have observed some people who can't take complaints or negative comments on FB positively. Negative feedback is not a bad thing, but actually it is a great opportunity to turn a complainer to a great advocate. Doing so signifies that you take people concerns seriously and want to rectify the situation as best you can. However, you always have the option to delete any comments or posts that you think are inappropriate. But you need to understand that valid suggestions need to be addressed. This is how many famous companies and celebrities handle their FB  page.

The trouble with education is that it is too often about teaching and not enough about learning. —Peter Evans

Good teachers establish strong relationships with their students and show that they care about them as people. Good teaching is all about being patient with the students and be empathic with them.

Good teachers are prepared and organized. They go to their classrooms being ready to teach. They teach lessons in a clear and structured way.
