How to have a year that counts

Had to share it here. Thought provoking advices.

This part clearly stood out,

It is no accident that the word passion arose from the Latin word for suffering. When we treat suffering as merely pain to be escaped, we sacrifice passion in the process. In a world where so many want to feel passionate about their lives and their work, very few seem willing to suffer. But you can’t have one without the other.

Suffering is the fire that melts the glass of the person you must leave behind. Suffering signals the price of growth; and we can never learn the worth of growth if we are afraid to suffer.

Do read the full article, it is just brilliant.

How to: change Send &Receive settings in Outlook 2010

My wishes to you all on this New year 2010.  This post is just to help my fellow beings on this earth to change a few settings in Outlook 2010. Since the beta release, I have been enjoying the new outlook 2010 (of course with out any glitches 🙂 ). It so happened that I had do a fresh installation of Office 2010 and had to reconfigure my settings (my previous installation had the outlook profile from 2007). Since this time I  was forced to create a new profile, I created one as per instructions and every thing went well, till I got struck with getting outlook to do a send receive for every 5 minutes. It nearly took  15 minutes  (had to go through each menu item thoroughly) to figure out the hidden menu.  Basically the option to configure the Send & Receive settings has been moved  and is now found under the FILE menu , OPTIONS and then Advanced items. Here is a screen shot of Send /Receive option.

Also do note that majority  of the settings(Signatures,Fonts, styles, Calendar formats, etc)  are configurable from this options menu. Its a pretty important menu, but just that its not visible right away. Feel free to share the experiences you had with the software.
