Jadav hopes to save his home from washing away by planting a forest

Planting a forest to save a disappearing island

It’s 1979, a teenage Jadav Payeng digs a small hole into the earth on Mājuli Island in Northern India. It’s an action that he will repeat millions of times over the next 39 years, although he doesn’t know it yet. Right now, he just wants to save his home, one tree at a time.

That monsoon season, he’d seen hundreds of snakes and other creatures wash ashore in the flooding, all dying of exposure. His heart broke.

"The snakes died in the heat, without any tree cover. I didn’t want this to happen to all the animals and people who live on the island,” he says.

The animals were left exposed in the harsh sun because erosion had scrubbed sandbars around the island of all vegetation. The same erosion meant that every time the Brahmaputra river flooded, more and more of Mājuli Island was being washed away. It’s something that had impacted Jadav before - as a child, his village had been washed away by the river.

In fact, by the time Jadav got started on his mission, Mājuli had already lost nearly three-quarters of its land mass. He knew that if he didn’t do something to protect it, home to over 150 000 people, it could soon be a distant memory.

Leaving school, he set up camp on a desolate sand bar and got to work planting trees. His insight came from a nearby government forestation project, where he learned the correct techniques for sowing the seeds and tending the plants, and the various species that would thrive in the harsh environment of sand, silt and flooding.

He was on his own.

Although he asked the government for help and tried to engage the local villagers, no one would assist.

Initially, Jadav started small, planting around 20 bamboo saplings on a sandbar. On their own, those saplings would have made little difference. They were, however, the foundations of an investment that would one day pay massive dividends.

Rain, wind, or monsoon, Jadav travels to his forest every day to plant

Overcoming difficult conditions, day in and day out

Jadav’s fight to save his island home has represented a huge long-term commitment for one man alone with very limited resources, especially in the face of incredibly harsh conditions.

Every single day he has found a way to care for the forest: buying and planting more seeds and saplings, hauling fertiliser, introducing insects and tending to the young trees.

During summer, temperatures climb into the high 30s with humidity measured at more than 90%. Monsoon season, meanwhile, has become more threatening over the years, bringing with it more than 1000mm of rainfall in a month. This only makes the mighty Brahmaputra river flow faster, increasing erosion rates and wreaking even more havoc on the environment.

Meanwhile, Majuli’s poor soil, covered by silt and sand and lacking a healthy ecosystem, has made for exceptionally inhospitable ground.

To buy the seeds and saplings, Jadav has relied on selling milk from his family’s herd of cattle and buffalo. This has meant significant sacrifices for Jadav and his family, since these are the same resources they depend on for their daily survival.

Even in more recent years, when he had to move away from Mājuli to be closer to schools for his children, Jadav has continued planting.

He now wakes at 3am, cycles for an hour, rows a boat for five kilometres, and then cycles for 30 more minutes to reach his forest.

Jadav’s story shows that even in the face of harsh conditions and limited resources, you can reap a great reward through commitment and consistency.

Why consistency matters

A decades-long, consistent commitment like Jadav’s also lies behind Prudential Investment Managers’ success in building wealth for our clients.

Why Travelling is a Really Valuable Learning Experience

Planned in the right way, travelling can be about so much more than just crossing places off your bucket list. There is lots to learn when visiting other countries. Open yourself up to new experiences – stay in a local home stay, volunteer with a community charity, get to know the people and the culture of each new place you visit – and you’ll find that you return home, not only with lots of great memories but a lot of new skills too.

Sure, you might learn about Cambodia’s history, the culture of Japan and the geography of South America. But it’s the life skills you learn which can prove important in the long run.

Here are some of the things you can hope to learn on your travels:

Confident Communication

Travelling, particularly if you’re going solo, is a great challenge for your communication skills. Besides the trials of communicating in a foreign language, you will be forced to strike up conversations with near strangers on a daily basis if you are to enjoy any social contact. Finding new friends and building relationships, however fleeting, requires charisma, good body language and confidence. These are skills that will prove equally useful back at home. It can help you face that college interview, Laruise Womens Floral Studed Wedge Sandals Beige mA6ptnEX
or meet new people with new-found poise and self-assurance.

How to Cope in a Crisis

Anyone who has travelled extensively has come across their fair share of tricky situations. Getting your bag robbed in a city centre street, finding that the train you were hoping to catch doesn’t leave until next week or struggling to find accommodation during a fiesta are all problems you may have to overcome. Facing these trials, working through them and deciding on the best course of action helps you to develop your organisational skills in tough and new situations.

A New Language

Immersing yourself in a culture is a great way to learn a foreign language. Pushing yourself to communicate in that language every day and hearing it used in real life situations all around you can be much more useful to your language abilities than studying in a classroom. Even if learning a language isn’t the main purpose of your trip, it can make your travels far easier and interesting as you organise transport and accommodation from place to place and engage with the locals in their native language.

How to Prioritise

When you’re travelling you need to determine what is essential and what you can do without. You can’t carry everything in that one backpack, nor can you always afford to choose the most comfortable mode of transport or accommodation. You will make difficult decisions on a daily basis and learn to prioritise what is most important. Being able to manage your time and your resources in this way is a key skill for education, work and your day to day life.

Different Ways of Life

Sitting at home in the familiar surroundings you grew up in, your perspective on life is unlikely to be challenged all that often. Travelling, you get to see how people around the world choose (or are compelled) to live their lives. You see where their priorities lie – how they view work, family, education, the environment – and how this compares to your experiences at home. Understanding that there isn’t just one way to do things opens your mind to a whole host of possibilities. Your ability to question, analyse and innovate will be greatly enhanced .

Travelling can expose you to new ideas and provide valuable learning experiences, how you choose to apply that learning is up to you. Whether you learn a new language, find new ways to approach life, or simply be a more confident individual, the skills you gained throughout your travelling adventures will be there to help you for the rest of your life.

Window Time: How Your Sales Team Can Create Original Insights

Posted by Julia Manoukian on Sep 9, 2016 10:42:24 AM

Share to LinkedIn Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share to Google+ Share to Flipboard Share to More

We’ve heard time and time again questions about how we create so much content. There is a concept at our company called “Window Time.”

Window time is a simple process. Sales professionals are on planes, trains and automobiles all the time. They’re pretty busy. It’s rare to get their fingers to ever hit a keyboard and contribute to the company blog. But what salespeople can do better than anyone else in the world is talk.

Window time maximizes their down time such as commutes to work, sitting on the tarmac of an airplane, sitting on the train from New York to Philadelphia, etc. They have this downtime, but they’re still unwilling to write. But if you have a placed call from your marketing team, where they call them and they say, “We want to do an article on X. Talk about what you’re hearing from your customers,” it’s much easier to get them involved in the content process.

So the marketing person just lets the salesperson speak. That way, the salesperson can write a 500-word blog in minutes.

This process captures all the intellectual property that’s stored upstairs in the sales professionals minds. There’s dozens and dozens of these blogs just waiting to be written! And salespeople legitimately want their voices to be heard, they love to see their name in writing on the company’s blog site. But they usually aren’t willing to do the hard lifting. Window time maximizes all of these opportunities so everybody wins.

Here is a step-by-step process we use to complete Window time.

1) Schedule time with a salesperson

This can be done via Google Calendars, or using whatever internal time management systems your company uses. Before you schedule time with X person, ensure:

2) Make and record the call.

Don’t be late. Treat window time as any other meeting. Ensure both parties are at ease before starting the recording.

There are many different kinds of software you can use to record your window time conversations, a few of which I’ve listed below.

Lakai Men’s Fremont Skate Shoe Black Suede DM US White Suede zH0f0CtgY

This is the app I personally use to record calls. It’s reliable, relatively easy-to use and inexpensive. All you have to do is call someone on your phone through the app, and “merge” the call. Afterwards, your recording will be available as an mp3 file.

Skechers 14773 Womens On The Go City 3 Styled Shoe Black Leather Pdpk9

This online seminar software is excellent for recording audio and/or video with the use of a computer. The only thing to note is that only the creator of the meeting has access to the recording, so either get the salesperson to send you the recordings after or create the event yourself.

Google Hangouts and QuickTime

If you don’t have the budget for either of the above, a free workaround for recording video and/or audio is the combination of Google Hangouts and QuickTime. Simply type “QuickTime” player into the search bar on your computer, and under the “File” tab, and you can do various combinations of recordings.

The Good Ol’ Recorder

If you have the luxury of meeting in person, you can use any kind of recorder. Another, very easy option is the built in recording software on your mobile devices. On iPhone this is called “Voice Memos.”

3) Transcribe

After you’ve recorded the call and everything has gone smoothly, it’s time to transcribe. As a former journalist, I don’t mind transcribing conversations — in fact, I actually enjoy it. But anyone who’s ever transcribed before knows it can be a tricky process. Pay careful attention to natural pauses, punctuation, and rephrasing grammar.

If you are crunched for time and/or don’t have someone who can transcribe on staff, there are many programs or sites that will do this for you for a small fee. BalaMasa Womens Sandals PeepToe Cold Lining Huarache Urethane PointedToe Sandals ASL04715 Yellow DVExhGTE
, for example, is a huge freelance marketplace that includes transcription services.

4) Packaging

You’re almost there. Now the finesse. If you and the salesperson haven’t decided on a title together, you need to come up with a catchy but not click-bait title for your post. A trick we do here is a title brainstorm: simply let your mind run and type out all the titles you can think of, and after you’ve come up with about twenty, stop and select one. Make sure it speaks to what the piece is about and entices your target audience to click on the blog.

Once you’ve picked a title, your marketing team will select a photo that best matches the theme of the blog. Make sure you’re signed up for a stock photo service such as Shutterstock or iStock. If not, you’ll have to take your own photos. (If you can’t afford photo licensing maybe you should rethink your blogging strategy).

Marketing and the social team will now publish your blog with the salesperson’s name, and promote it through your company’s email database and social channels.

To get the most visibility, the rest of your company should be leveraging employee advocacy and sharing your blog within their networks as well. Marketing — don’t forget to mention any companies or personalities in the post, as this could also increase your post’s chances of going viral.

And voila! Hopefully you have created a solid insight with your salesperson’s name attached. Don’t forget to analyze the results (what kind of posts resonate best with your target audience?) and optimize your process.

Want to further the conversation? Connect with me on LinkedIn!

You’ve built an editorial calendar and have selected a topic that best speaks to that salesperson’s area of expertise. For example, for window time with an SDR, I suggest a topic on OSVALDO PERICOLI Womens Court Shoes Ivory Ral 1013 IveGGXGfXu
, or with our CEO I suggest a topic on Northwave NW Step by Step Ratchet Kits Black Hl9UsW325U
because these are the areas have the most insights in.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR RISPERDAL CONSTA (risperidone)

WARNING: Increased Mortality in Elderly Patients with Dementia-Related Psychosis Elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with antipsychotic drugs are at an increased risk of death. Analyses of 17 placebo-controlled trials (modal duration of 10 weeks), largely in patients taking atypical antipsychotic drugs, revealed a risk of death in the drug-treated patients of between 1.6 to 1.7 times the risk of death in placebo-treated patients. Over the course of a typical 10-week controlled trial, the rate of death in drug-treated patients was about 4.5%, compared to a rate of about 2.6% in the placebo group. Although the causes of death were varied, most of the deaths appeared to be either cardiovascular (e.g., heart failure, sudden death) or infectious (e.g., pneumonia) in nature. Observational studies suggest that, similar to atypical antipsychotic drugs, treatment with conventional antipsychotic drugs may increase mortality. The extent to which the findings of increased mortality in observational studies may be attributed to the antipsychotic drug as opposed to some characteristic(s) of the patients is not clear. RISPERDAL CONSTA is not approved for the treatment of patients with dementia-related psychosis.

Contraindications: Cerebrovascular Adverse Events (CAEs): Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS): Tardive Dyskinesia (TD): Metabolic Changes: Hyperprolactinemia: Orthostatic Hypotension and Syncope: Falls: Leukopenia, Neutropenia and Agranulocytosis Potential for Cognitive and Motor Impairment: Seizures: Dysphagia: Priapism Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP) Administration: Suicide: Increased sensitivity in patients with Parkinson’s disease Use RISPERDAL CONSTA ® with caution Commonly Observed Adverse Reactions for RISPERDAL CONSTA ® :
