Morale may be positive (optimistic - high morale) or negative (pessimistic - low morale). How can a superior bring high morale among his subordinates? Give below are the basic techniques:-
    • If you are a superior / manager, make sure that you sincerely listen to your subordinates' suggestions and their creative ideas by your non-verbal body language and communication.

    • Most superiors do not spend enough time with their subordinates. Time and again, superiors should let their subordinates know that they are available for their subordinates and care about what is going on?

    'Modus Operandi' of Cyber Attackers

    Most cyberattacks are random. According to Symantec Anti Virus Group President, Francis Desouza, in 2011 there were 300 million cyberattacks. But some attackers know exactly who they want to reach and how to steal information. Here is their 'modus operandi':-
    • A hacker first chooses his target company which has vital information that he needs or to get access in to it.
    • The hacker identifies an employee or the person who has all vital data with valuable information. Mostly, he will do research on social networks like Facebook, Linkedin to know how best to target him.
    • The hacker then sends an email to the targeted person that appears to come from a friend or business associate.
    • It might include an attachment that looks legitimate but contains a malicious computer code that will give the hacker access to the target's computer.
    • The code is often original and of high enough quality that it is very difficult to detect the hacking.
    • The hacker then uses his acccess.
    • He steals data from the victim's computer or to root around the network for valuable information.
    • Most cybercrime is basically an online smash-and-grab job.
    • The hacker is likely to wait undetected for valuable information to steal, or to continuously steal information over time.

    Break Habits & Make Changes

    A habit (good or bad) is a behaviour you repeat again and again. You tend to repeat it once you learn a behaviour that helps you in some way. Soon it becomes normal behaviour for you. After few repetitions, it becoms habit.
    Habit begins with finding a certain way to do something, it works, you stick to it and then you stop looking for other (better) ways whereas you can. Here are five steps to help you break a habit and make a change:-
    • Know you can change:- Confidence is everything. When you know you can change, you can. As you learn what to do, you will become more and more confident. Everybody and anybody can change. So show your confidence & show your strength.

      Millions of very serious alchoholics have quit drinking. They found it hard. But they stayed with it and they were successful.
    • Unlearn learned Behaviour:- Any behaviour that can be learned can be unlearned. Unlearn something means, finding another (better) way to achieve the same goal. Like, crying and drinking, find another behaviour to help you get your way. Some habits are easy to change, others are more difficult.
    • Make a Decision to Change:- (i) Want to Change:- The more you want to do something, the stronger your decision will be to do it. (ii) Take Responsibility for yourself:- Take responsibility for any problems that you cause through your habit. When you take responsibility for what you do, you can break a habit. (iii) Have a Clear Goal or a Clear Set of Goals:- For example, when you quit drinking, you have two main goals : (a) Getting yourself free & (b) Regain good health.
    • Cope with intense desire or compulsions:-:- Addictions consist of your intense desire and compulsions. To quit any addition successfully, the single best way to cope is to wait them out. Each time you have an intense desire or compulsion, do not act on it, but simply be aware of it. Try any of the relaxation techniques. Coping with your cravings does get easier. You get stronger and stronger.
    • Find Something to replace your habit:- You have two solutions for this. (i) Finding a new way to do the same thing. & (ii) Doing something completely different. For instance, you can find a new way to clean your teeth like changing your pattern of brushing such as rinsing with salt water. When you break a habit, you can do something different when you break the habit. You can use your time to do something else.
