Read Fiction and Be Successful! 


Lots of research cites that studies that show reading fiction actually increases people’s emotional intelligence (EQ) and their accurate awareness of themselves and others, and their ability to create positive relationships with others based on managing their own reactions.. EQ or EI(Emotional Intelligence) is the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups.

A lot of time it has been found that people who only read non-fiction tend to be somewhat more two-dimensional in their perceptions of others and of situations; they seem to have fewer options to call upon when making decisions or solving problems, though this can be very subjective! I’ve wondered about the cause and effect of it: Do people who read fiction already see life in a less black and white, more nuanced way, or do they see life in a less black and white, more nuanced way because they read fiction?

It seems that reading fiction improves your sensitivity to and appreciation of complex human situations; it provides a richer ‘toolkit’ of understanding from which to pull when making decisions and building relationships.  And as our business lives get more complex, faster-paced, less hierarchical and more dependent upon our ability to build support with those around us – that kind of toolkit becomes ever more critical to our success.

So if you’re feeling self-indulgent as you sit out on your porch of a weekend with Game of Thrones or Harry Potter or Sidney Sheldon (I'm simply naming out my collection!) in hand – reassure yourself that you may be improving your chances of business success just as much or more than if you were reading the Economic Times or the Wall StreetJournal!

Rural and Urban Marketing Linkage

MARKET LINKAGES
Some general principles need to be clarified to provide a basis for understanding food-marketing systems within a development context. In order to make any effective interventions in a marketing system it is necessary to define the types of marketing channels, their linkages and functions.
The term “market linkages” is often referred to in the literature on rural development. what precisely does it mean? The term linkage obviously implies a physical connection between the producer and the ultimate consumer. Linkages also involve financial transactions - the selling and buying of goods - and can be broadly defined in four different ways:
by the form of financial transactions or type of intermediaries who undertake the transactions;by the channels through which transactions occur and the type of facilities used for transactions;by how they are linked together by transport and communications networks;by the spatial distribution of transactions - where they occur and whethe…
