The Theory of Two Gods

The Theory of Two Gods

When I was a child, a teacher asked me about why there is one God? I was perplexed, surprised because, until the age of 16 years, I was never taught about God and its existence. Though living in Muslim country, people were considered never to raise a question about God and religion. And even I heard thinkers and philosophers to be tagged as blasphemous who talked about God out from the verses of Quran or religion. People in the religious country were never allowed to think in that way.

But when I have taken an interest in learning about knowledge, God, Religion and all of that which I can learn, it seems a lot of ideas are coming and penetrating through my mind. Yesterday when I was learning about psychology, the theory or proposition of two Gods came into my mind. Though I believe in the absolute unity of God which means, there is only one God, and nobody shares his virtues or power.

two masters

My teacher taught me that there is only one God, why because if there are two gods, then there is a possibility that two gods fight each other on a matter where they don’t settle, or they have a difference of opinion or disagreement. For example, If there are two Gods then If God A wants to send showers in the east side but God B wants to send showers on the West side then there is the possibility of difference and fight between both of them. The angel of rain (Michael as per Islam) where will go and shower the rain? Matter starts here!!!! I was convinced in childhood that teacher seemed to be perfect on this matter and his knowledge was vast enough to justify and convince a class of 60 students that there is one God that is why the world is full of peace though there is yet no peace or harmony on this earth.

But there comes another thought after 15 years, for example, if a home is run by father and mother who are universally accepted two guardians of the home, who think harmoniously for most of the matters and settle issues and problems of the home which is a small planet for them. So if they can collaborate and decide major questions, issues and problems then why not two gods can decide the matters of this small planet or earth.

I can see that sometimes two parents cannot decide a matter peacefully. Therefore, they fight with each such as sometimes it happens, father throws plates dishes or anything which is possible to show anger. Or mother sometimes fights with children or destroys some mugs or any part of the home which implies that they both sometimes damage their own home.

But in case of Gods, if they disagree, they can bring earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, droughts or any other catastrophe resulting damage to earth which is their own home or planet. Hence when these two Gods are angry with each other, they damage the earth. It is happening because of disagreement between both of two gods. Therefore there may be the possibility of two Gods.

Though I am a firm believer in one God, but my question remains open to new researchers and scholars.

Organizational innovation: the role of leadership and organizational culture

The purpose of this paper is to approach the issue of how organizational innovation can be accelerated with the support of leadership structures and the organizational climate, specifically taking into account the top innovative universities of the world, which has not been found in previous empirical studies.

Top innovative universities of the world mostly have a transformational leadership style directly triggering organizational innovation which is consistent with the previous studies, while transactional leadership is having a positive relationship with organizational culture and innovation, but the results were statistically insignificant.

leadership

This study has suggested that less innovative universities should draft and design leadership and cultural enriching plans so that society, organizations, and commercial firms could foster innovation, ultimately benefiting general public and community.

Based on this research and other previous studies, it is suggested that universities across the world ought to imply transformational leadership traits and style which have fostered organizational innovation in the top-ranked innovative universities in developed nations. Whereas more factors needed to be studied so that comprehensive guidelines should be provided to universities and research institutes where innovation is stagnant and passive.

A survey, based on a deductive approach, is adopted since the questionnaire for organizational innovation is designed for organizations in order to measure organizational innovation, widely used by experienced employees from senior managers to all kind of employees (Caird et al., 2013) facilitating the European Commission work, whereas for transformational leadership, a Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (Bass and Avolio, 1994) is utilized. A complete online questionnaire was developed for collecting data, and the PLS-SEM statistical technique is used for analysis and results.

How to overcome failure

https://wp.me/p283PT-4gw

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”
Randy Pausch

Most of my time is spent trying to figure out ways to overcome failure. To me, failure is the default. Whenever I become complacent, whenever I take things for granted, whenever I become bored or lazy, there’s some failure to wake me up a bit.

Failure is the default.

At the same time, I believe that a lot of people try to live their day to day lives in such a way that they avoid problems. They fear failure so much that they also avoid setting goals, dreaming big, trying new things. They build a web of routines, a comfort zone. They use all the crutches that society provides, even though they do not need them.

But I do wonder… even if healthy, if you were to use a crutch for a long period of time, would you still be able to walk properly? Or would you become dependent on the crutch?

It’s not the fall that breaks people, but the fear of falling.

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
Maya Angelou

You cannot succeed unless you fail. Romantics might argue with this, but it’s true. Failure is a stepping stone to success, and not its opposite.

And this is basically all one needs to overcome failure. As a matter of fact, it’s probably enough to make you even welcome it with open arms.

You fail at something, it means you’re trying something new. It means that’s an opportunity to grow, to expand, to become a better version of yourself.

Every single failure has something to teach you. Something about certain realities of the world around you, about yourself, about what you are trying to achieve.

Don’t get me wrong. Failure hurts. Failure can be embarrassing. You can fail so hard that you don’t know if you’ll ever be able to get back up again.

When you lose everything. And there’s no one around to offer comfort. And you can’t sleep at night. A true dark night of the soul. When thinking about others having it worse does not help you one bit. That’s when you know you hit rock bottom.

But as long as you are not defeated, there’s always a way out.

I’ve been working on irevuo for almost six years. You couldn’t tell that, mostly because I quit on it about five times. Changed the domain, the hosting, the idea, the topics, the…

I quit on it five times, but I decided to try one more time, just this once, for about six times.

I only quit writing once, and for about five months, but I failed at it a lot more than that. Let’s call them micro-failures. For every published novel there are about ten projects that never got finished. A million words deleted. Words that I struggle to write, yet they weren’t good enough.

I’d write this wonderful post. You know, write my heart out, and no one seemed to notice.

I spent weeks trying to figure out new products, stuff that could actually help others, and no one would buy them.

This is why I do not believe in talent, as some sort of natural ability to do something. When I’ll see a new born baby write a brilliant first draft, that’s when I’ll believe in talent.

Anyway, let’s get back to failure.

Yes. Failure. It’s not a big deal. You get used to it. Practice is a sort of controlled failure, right? There’s a learning curve to everything; this also means frustration is inevitable at some point.

You overcome failure the moment you decide to stop having such a negative relationship with it. You stop letting it get to your heart, and you just analyze what happened and how you can improve.

You overcome failure the moment you realize being afraid of it is the biggest mistake you could make.

What if I fall?

https://wp.me/p283PT-1nA

For a long time I used to believe that I had been born to be great. That I’d conquer the world. That I’d change something, leave something behind. It’s not true, actually. I wasn’t born to be great. No one ever is. I took that. I told myself that. I lied to myself. I stumbled from failure to failure. I decided to be self-propelled, to be fueled by my desire to become great, not by others seeing that greatness in me. I decided to fight for what I wanted, because no one would ever fight that battle for me.

So… what if you fly? What if you can actually do it?

TOWARD A MORE COMPREHENSIVE MODEL OF FIRMS’ HUMAN CAPITAL RENTS

TOWARD A MORE COMPREHENSIVE MODEL OF FIRMS’ HUMAN
CAPITAL RENTS

CLINT CHADWICK
University of Kansas

The paper is about the question that how firms can take advantage or accrue the human capital rent since it is vivid that always human capital rent goes to workers as in the perfect competition.
Human capital poses unique challenges but two of these challenges are discussed in the paper, and they are workers’ free will and workers’ perpetual ownership of their human capital. Free will refers to workers’ thoughts and feelings have a direct impact on what they are willing to do and how hard they are willing to work—that is, on the value that their human capital creates. Workers’ thoughts and feelings have a direct impact on what they are willing to do and how hard they are willing to work—that is, on the value that their human capital creates.

Four propositions are discussed widely through this paper.

P1: Inherently scarce human capital increases both human capital value in use and firms’ cost of human capital in almost equal amounts.

P2: Idiosyncratic firm complementarities increase human capital value in use.

P3: Idiosyncratic human capital administrative cost capabilities decrease firms’ cost of human capital.

P4: Capabilities that allow firms to idiosyncratically leverage labor market frictions decrease their cost of human capital.

The first proposition is widely understood and accepted that scarcity of human capital can enhance not only the cost of human capital for firms but it also enhances its value through capabilities and competencies. Second proposition deals with phenomenon that organizational capabilities drive human capital rent they increase value in use which cannot be achieved by the competitive firm. Third proposition says that labor market frictions can provide chances to apt value in use that human capital creates by inhibiting workers ability to exchange their human capital in labor market.

Last proposition is about capabilities that provide leverage to firms in perfect compe

How to Analyze People on Sight Through the Science of Human Analysis: The Five Human Types

Human Analysis-The X-Ray

Modern science has proved that the fundamental traits of every individual are indelibly stamped in the shape of his body, head, face and hands-an X-ray by which you can read the characteristics of any person on sight.

The most essential thing in the world to any individual is to understand himself. The next is to understand the other fellow. For life is largely a problem of running your own car as it was built to be run, plus getting along with the other drivers on the highway.

From this book you are going to learn which type of car you are and the main reasons why you have not been getting the maximum of service out of yourself.

Also you are going to learn the makes of other human cars, and how to get the maximum of co-operation out of them. This co-operation is vital to happiness and success. We come in contact with our fellowman in all the activities of our lives and what we get out of life depends, to an astounding degree, on our relations with him.
