Wisdom Edit, November 2023



Where did all the time go, huh? It's November already, so we hope you've been able to fulfil one of the goals for this year, or are at least working towards it. If not, fret not. It's only November, you can still start. 

On the topic of goals, we accomplished a major one - 150+ (154 to be exact) WisGen have been placed! It truly gave us all at WisdomCircle an additional reason to be joyous during the festive season. 

In this edition, we're thrilled share insights from WisGen* community members, like you, on how they are uniquely positioned to benefit organisations.

Also, let us know how you have been liking our newsletter!

For November, we've used an image of the Nyctanthes arbor-tristis more commonly known as the "night-blooming jasmine" or "parijatha". Night-flowering Jasmine is its strong and delightful fragrance that intensifies at night, is associated with moonlit nights and is often celebrated in poetry and cultural references.

In the ever-evolving landscape of the modern workplace, the contributions of retirees often go unnoticed. We asked you, “What qualities, skills, or experiences do you believe retirees bring to the workplace that make a significant impact and benefit organisations?” and here is what we received. 

To share your articles, blogs, and other written content related to your post-retirement experience, write to us at content@wisdomcircle.com

WisdomCircle honours those challenging cultural expectations of elders slowing down and retreating into retirement by shining light on their journey through an inspiring series called “Wisdom Stories”. 

Neelima Dalmia Adhar, author of “Father Dearest: The Life and Times of R. K. Dalmia” and more books, shares in her interview, “Over the years, I have come to realise that the best thing about ‘being me’ is that I’m a limited edition and there are no other copies. I cannot please everyone, so I don’t kill myself trying or feel guilty if I fail. My husband, children and grandchildren have given me a solid grounding, and continue to spur me on. I take inspiration from the younger generation and greedily absorb their youthful energy which I feel is the best antidote to ageing.”

Swati, from WisdomCircle took part in a 5K run and placed 1st in the 60-70 years runners category!

She writes, “I was watching the young ones running alongside me. They would sprint very fast for 100 metres, run out of steam and slow down to a walk where I would catch up with them doing my cadenced effort. Seemed so similar to our approaches to life’s challenges. When younger, I would rush into situations, without pacing myself and soon lose the motivation required to see things through. I would love to send a message to my younger self to say, ‘take it easy, keep up a sustained effort, stay focused on the goal and concentrate on doing a job well rather than completing it in record time.
