Learn from  everyone  follow no one

-Damandeep singh

  -Have you ever heard the saying “ learn from everyone  but follow  no one?”
I’m sure you understand the idea of using situations either  good or bad, as learning experiences, but that’s easier said than done, right?

It’s easy to talk about learning in every situation, but when you’re upset, angry or disappointed, it doesn’t seem so easy.

It starts with your perspective.  Here’s how to learn from everyone…

How to Learn From Success

Success if such a powerful teacher.  It teaches us what we did right, and what we should replicate.  Success makes us feel great – it’s motivation make us to keep going, to strive for more, and to have more success in the future, but success can also be a curse.

I’ve noticed that when people use the phrase “you’ve got to forget the past”, they’re always talking about the negative stuff.  People like to forget losses and remember wins, but there are reasons for doing the opposite, at least sometimes.

How many people have you known who achieved a certain level of success? 

Sometimes, we need to forget our successes.  It’s also called swallowing our pride.

Take all of the lessons from your success, but remember them as lessons, don’t hold them with hard-headed pride.

How to Learn From Failure

This is the big one.  How many books are written about learning from failure?  This is also the hard one.

So what’s the trick?  It’s not as much of a trick as it is a perspective.  Learning from failure starts before the failure happens.  You have to position your mind to think right so that when failure arises, you’re prepared for it, and ready to learn.

I have made a habit of using a motivation paper in the mornings.  This paper has a few quotes, some Scripture references, but predominantly, it has reminders on it.  Here’s the most powerful reminder on my paper:

“Learn from every situation today, good or bad.  No matter how I feel about it, take a lesson from it”

Too easy.  It’s so simple, and we all know that this is the best mindset, but it’s the fact that I remind myself of this everyday that is so important.

You must remind yourself to learn from failure.  Before it happens.  Everyday.

If you do, I know it sounds cliché, but you never really fail.  It either works out, or you learn a valuable lesson.  Looking back in my life, there are plenty of times that I failed and I am better off because of it.  If I would have succeeded at what I was trying to do, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

How to Learn From Everyone 

Yes, you really can learn from everyone.  Simply put, you either learn what to do or what not to do.  What works, and what doesn’t.

Become a people watcher – not in a creepy way.

Watch people.  Analyze what they do and why.  Find people who are where you want to be in life, and get on their schedule.  I’m a huge fan of mentorship lunches, dinners and coffee appointments

Follow no one – when we start following  someone we  lost our identity ……ie we have to learn  from everyone  but not to follow  anyone…

Power of Gratitude 

Damandeep singh

-If I could offer you a magic potion that would make you happier, healthier, more optimistic and more productive, and tell you that potion would cost nothing and will require very little effort to use, would you be interested?
Let me ask the question differently.
If this potion existed would you want some?
Of course you would! Unfortunately, I don’t have a potion that will do these things. But each of us has something even better than a potion that will do all of those things and more…
Gratitude.
Science tells us that an “attitude of gratitude” is a good health choice. Being more grateful more often makes us happier and more optimistic. But gratitude also adds to the bottom line – in very real ways. And the best news about gratitude is that it requires little time and no money.
Here are five reasons gratitude improves your productivity and results:
Gratitude attracts what we want. The universal law of attraction says that we will attract into our life the things we think about and focus on. Since this is true, wouldn’t you want more of what you are thankful for? (I think I know the answer to that!) Remember that when you are consciously aware of your blessings, and are grateful for them, you are focusing more clearly on what you do want in your life – and are attracting more of those things into your life.
Gratitude improves relationships. We learn the importance of saying “thank you” as little children. We are taught that habit because it is “good manners.” This childhood lesson is extremely powerful. Think about those people that you know who are most appreciative of you – and let you know it. How do you feel about them? Does their appreciation positively impact your relationship with them? Of course it does! Be grateful for people, their contributions, their talents and their actions – and make sure you let them know how you feel.


Gratitude reduces negativity. It is hard to be negative about your situation when you are thinking about things for which you are grateful. One of the fastest ways to improve your mood or outlook is to count your blessings.
Gratitude improves problem solving skills. Too often we look at problem solving with a very jaded view. “Something is wrong. We have barriers in our way. Then, we have to put in effort to fix it.” Conversely, when we think about what we are grateful for we open our minds up to new possibilities and connections. We also enter a problem solving situation with a perspective of improvement and opportunity rather than challenge or issue.
Gratitude helps us learn. Every dark cloud has a silver lining. Behind every problem lies an opportunity. Being grateful for our situation – even if we don’t like everything about it – allows us to be thankful for the opportunity to learn something new.
That’s Fine, But How?
At this point you may be thinking, OK, sounds great, but how can I really be more grateful, more often?
It’s really very easy.
Let’s practice right now.
1. Make a list of five things you are grateful for right now. These can be big things (like your family) or little things (like the fact that someone held the door open for you this morning). This can be a mental list or written down. Do it now.
2. Reflect on your list and allow yourself to feel good about these things.
3. If there is a person you can thank or show your appreciation to, do that now too (a quick call or email is a good start!).
You can do this exercise anytime, and you don’t have to stop at five things. In fact, it is a great idea to keep a running list in your Journal, planner or notebook – this way you can return to your list anytime you wish, reinforcing your gratitude.
But at any moment you can make a list, bask in those thoughts, and share that thankfulness with others.
You’ve probably thought of being thankful as a good thing to do or the right thing to do. But now hopefully you see it can be even more powerful than “right.”

Humanity V/s Religion

humans_make_peace_w1

-Damandeep Singh

What is religion? First thing that would come to your mind is “GOD”. GOD is a creature, a belief, a human or a superman from the other parallel world, we don’t actually know. But we follow him. If you ask any single person as to why they believe god exist, you’ll get different answers. “IT GIVES US CALMNESS” some say while the others say “WE HAVE FAITH IN HIM BECAUSE WE CAN FEEL HIM”. Most of them say “We don’t know”. I’ll tell you the reason. If you teach a kid from the time he starts grabbing things in is mind, that GOD is the reason he exists, GOD saves us from all the EVIL, and GOD is the reason why you came to the earth (he believes it till he reaches secondary school, believe me!) then its quite obvious that this mindfeeding will find its place in the heart and soul of an individual. It’s like if you thought a child that “GREEN” is actually “BLUE” since childhood, it may happen that he sees green as blue.

WHY AM I TELLING YOU ALL THIS? I’ll come to it. VEDAS are believed to be the most prominent and trustworthy book for the Hindus. Obviously we have lots of manuscript, but when it comes to contradiction of beliefs, the VEDAS wins! This Vedas explains about the origin of 4 prominent “castes” or “varna” from the GOD. The “brahmins” from his mouth,”kshatriya” from the arms, “vaishtyas” from the some where in between, and the “SHUDRAS” from the feet. It is this theory which led to evolution of the “untouchables”. Yes, untouchability prevails in our country since VEDIC times. WHY? Because they evolved from the feet. Whenever you have to pay respect to your elders, you touch their feet, I wonder why.ANYWAYS.

There are myriad, and i mean MYRIAD number of videos on YouTube where you will learn that how this “untouchability” still prevails in our society. Not only this, the small children are infact galvanized to learn that the “dalits” or rather the “harijans” as people say, shouldn’t be touched. Now do you understand the green and blue concept?

Islamic religion is said to have evolved form 7th century AD. But the QURAN says that ISLAMIC RELIGION emerged since the earth came into existence. So according to the QURAN, first RELIGION evolved and then we started talking of humans isn’t it? Or is it simultaneous theory. Even if it is,why would a person not be treated as a “human” first instead of being a person from a particular religion. Also, if Allah created humans, and it was the only religion at that time, why was there any reason to give it a name?

Lets take another example. According to QURAN, Jesus was a messenger who came to spread peace. Then why was their any reason to bring out another religion? Also if JESUS was himself a messenger, and since Islam was the first religion then why this all fuss about a christian can eat pork and a person who is a Muslim cannot? Why does each and every GOD have his/her own set of rules? Can’t he have a common set of guidelines? We are already messed up reading and learning big syllabus and cosmic phenomenons and neutrinos and supernova and black holes and what not! Why is there even a set of rules to decide what I eat, what I wear, OR even whom I love and wish to marry?

People will say that if I don’t wish to believe I shouldn’t, its up to me. Okay fine I won’t, BUT does me not believing eliminate all the fuss, all the violence, all the “gou hatya” and “beef kand” incidences? Will it bring an end to all the people who loose their love just because he/she is from another religion? Does it put to an end to the “dharmik bhavanao ko thess pahunchai isliye hum maarenge” thing? NO! I mean how can it if we keep on believing that “HINDUISM” or “ISLAM” or “Christianity” EVOLVED FIRST? Why can’t people understand that ADAM and EVE were humans first and “Hindu” or “Muslim” later. When will people start believing that an end to all this can only be brought if WE ACT AS PEOPLE, PERSONS or rather HUMANS first? Can you see yourself in a position where you are treated as a “harijan” and not touched because according to some theory you originated from the feet of god, the same feet which helps us to walk, jump, pedal a cycle and WIN RACES of life.

Different religion in INDIA have their own set of personal laws. For example , The HINDU MARRIAGE ACT says polygamy cannot exist in HINDUISM, but it can in ISLAMISM.
Why can’t we not have a uniform civil code for all the religions? Infact this is what our forefathers ensured in the constitution under the DPSP, a uniform civil code.

I am not saying to give up religion, but all I want is to you all people accept the fact that GOD , if it exists, must have thought us to believe in equality, believe in love and compassion, and most of all, believe in HUMANITY.

Childhood: An era of being real

Happy little girl painting with hands in kindergarten

-Damandeep Singh

We often say college days are golden days and school days are heavenly days but what I feel is childhood days are above all. If you have seen any child around, you must have notice that kids find happiness in very small things. They don’t need iPad or iPhone, they don’t need branded clothes or shoes . As whatever they see, they start playing with it. They don’t see front person status, they will give smile to everyone without knowing their intention. That’s the beauty of childhood. They don’t have memories of past nor do they have worries of future what they know is enjoying the present.  We all are simply lucky to witness such era once in our life. A era when mother use to hold us whole day, a era when she use to feed us after every hour and two, a era when father after returning from office would first use to play with us leaving every stress aside. A era when we never pretended to be someone else. A era when we use to do what we feel. A era when we use to cry aloud. A era when we use to laugh aloud. A era of being real.

We started growing up. And we started chasing some or the other thing. And we started losing something called “Real Me”. People often say I am real but then it’s not at all true because everyone’s behaviour changes person to person. Moreover, when we grow up we restrict ourself from showcasing our emotions to others. Well, that’s why I think we were real only during our childhood as we grown up we lose our reality.

No, not blaming anyone but its just an experience noticed during confronting with ownself.

5 Habits of Happy People

Learn to live free.

fullsizerender-1

-Damandeep Singh

steps for free life

1. Spend money on experience, not things
Happy people tend to spend money on experience more than on things. Of course, there are daily necessities that we need in order to function. But, at the end of the day, it is the quality of our moments that bring us the most joy. If we focus on the next “thing,” a new sport jacket, a designer handbag or a nicer car, we are likely to fall prey to the vicious cycle of not being satisfied with what we have.

2. Don’t neglect the basics
People who are happy tend to manage the basics of self-care better than people who are unhappy. From a behavioral perspective, if a person is not tending to the basics (staying active, eating healthy, making time for self-care, etc.), how can they possibly reap the benefits that a person who is doing this can? They can’t.

3. Make time for family and friends
The happiest people spend quality time with family and friends. If we let ourselves, we can easily neglect the people who love us most. This neglect happens not because we are bad people, but because we live busy lives that need our constant attention. Spending time to connect with the people we love most is often healing, energizing and motivating. We have to be careful not to become a family and/or society of tumbleweeds. Who in your life can you reach out to today?

4. What is the rush? Take your time 
Happy people tend to rush through life much less. Why? Because they recognize that rushing causes stress, and stress makes them feel unhappy. An enormous source of unhappiness comes from feeling rushed by deadlines, traffic and ourselves. So often, we get caught up in the rush of the moment, not realizing the bigger picture. Sure, there are times when we need to move quickly, but that does not mean we need to move hastily. One of my favorite quotes by John Wooden is,”Hurry, but do not rush.” We easily forget that it is a miracle to even exist. We forget that we are not permanent figures in this world. Taking time to reflect on the miracle of life is an essential part of living happily.

5. Don’t sweat the small stuff
Happy people tend to approach life from a perspective of lightness. They realize that both good and bad things are bound to happen. More importantly, they recognize that happiness does not need to depend upon whether a good or bad thing has happened. We can still be happy, even when something does not go the way we wanted. If we allow ourselves to be happy only when good things happen, we become like an emotional pinball. Anytime we get stuck in unhappiness because something undesirable has happened, it is helpful to take a step back and remember, not only are we part of life’s miracle, we are the miracle.

Recharge Yourself !!!

“Take time to recharge. You do it for your phone. Why not do it for yourself?” -Dana Richliew

Keep this in mind whenever you think of the importance of a good recharge in your life.

There are many things that you can do when you are fully charged. At times, a fully charged you can even amaze yourself by doing new things that you have never done before. But just like a battery, computer, or even cell phone, you too will run down on power and need to be recharged.

All you need to recharge is the following:

  • You
    • Recharging yourself starts with you.
    • Make the committment to yourself to be the catalyst for the recharging of yourself as a whole.
  • Time
    • Recharging requires you to create and give some time.
    • Plan and devote time to do the things that allow for you to recharge at various points.
  • Rest
    • You and the Energizer bunny have one thing in common: you may keep going and going, but at some point, you are going to need rest or else you will break down.
    • Learn to step back to find things that will help you to relax and recharge your body so that you can last longer over your lifetime. It can be a vacation, a nap, or even a full good night’s sleep.
  • Your interests
    • You interests can help you recharge your mind, body, and soul because you are doing things that take your mind off of things that prove to be stressful and draining.
    • Find things that bring out your fun, creative, and free-spirited side so that you can laugh, play, and even feel refreshed about life in general.

Recharging does not take a lot, but it starts with you making the time to rest and find interests that will allow for you get back the energy that you so badly need.

What are some ways you can recharge?

There are a lot of ways that you can recharge. It just comes back to what fits you. Lori Deschene with Tina Buddha decided to share 40 Ways To Give Yourself A Break. I will list them below. I am know you can find a way or two from list below that can help you recharge your batteries.

The Art of Doing

 

dandelion-463928_960_720

By :- Sumit Arora

I think we all know that it is very easy to want something, but not always quite as easy to get that something done. There are plenty of things to distract us and keep us occupied: things we need to do, and things we shouldn’t be doing but do anyway (procrastination, anyone?). In a world where everything is fast-paced and expected to be so, we often fall prey to all kinds of distractions, wanting to do everything at once.

So how do we really get the important things done? How do we make our dreams happen? How do we go from wanting to doing?

Well, prepare your patience and your mind, because it’s going to be tested and expanded…

Do I really want it?

Going from wanting to doing takes practice, and it takes a good routine, too. And we all know that creating a new routine takes time, patience and perseverance. And lots of integrity.

So first of all you need to make sure that you actually, really, truly want what you say or think you want. Because otherwise you will keep finding excuses to not get it done. That’s just how we work – why waste time on something we deep down don’t actually want? And that’s fair enough, really. I don’t like wasting my time either, and only if I keep myself from doing something do I realize that I probably don’t really want it.

That’s when it’s time to move on and figure out what you actually want. But when you have figured that something out and you want it so badly that you cannot see yourself doing anything else but that, you’ll know it’s time. It’s time to get going and get doing!

Mind over Mattress

So new routine time!

It’s said that most successful people wake up early. This is because you tend to get more things done (as you’re facing less distractions) before everyone else is up and awake. You can also get so much more done while your brain is still nice and fresh from a good night’s sleep.

So my suggestion is that you start your new routine by waking up earlier. I’ve tested this, and to me it really works (and I used to be a bit of a night owl). But, like I said, step by step! Don’t get too excited and set your alarm to 5am straight away if you normally get up at 7am. Trust me when I say, that’s never going to work.
What you want to do is start off with, say, 30 minutes earlier. Once you get used to this slightly earlier routine (usually a few weeks in), you go a further 30 minutes earlier. That’s how I went from waking up at around 7.30-8, to waking up at 5.30 (and I’m going for 5am, eventually). At a slow pace, I’m waking up earlier and earlier, and now I feel no different waking up at 5.30am – in fact, believe it or not, I usually feel better waking up that early!

Keep in mind that as you start your day earlier, you might also need to adjust what time you go to bed at night. You know yourself best, and we all need different amounts of sleep, so adjust according to your own body.

If you’re a night owl (which about half of you probably are), it might work too to stay up late and wake up later – if you have a work schedule that allows for it, that is. Experiment! This is the fun part! Whatever works for you to create a great new routine.

Structure is your friend

Next up, I suggest that you set aside a specific time every day where you do this something that you want to get done. So you’ve started to wake up 30 minutes earlier? Awesome! Now, make good use of that time. Leave your phone on the bedside table (or wherever you keep it at night), make a hot or cold beverage of your choice, don’t turn the internet on (unless you really need it for whatever you are about to embark upon) or at least don’t start up those social media apps. Just sit down at your desk, or head out to the garage, or wherever you go to get things done, and spend 30 minutes focusing on your new project. 30 minutes every day turns out to be quite a lot after a while, you know!

Take a break

Something important to remember in all of this, is to still allow yourself some time off. Set aside one day of the week, or at least a few hours of that day, where you rest. Resting is as important as getting things done, to be able to keep your good mood and spirit up. Your body and brain needs to relax from time to time, in order to refuel and to be able to fully function when you need it to. Be kind to your body and mind, and you’ll see that everything will start working in perfect harmony for you.

Let’s Think Less

thinking_man_png11595

BY :- Sumit Arora

Thinking easily transports us away from the present, into the uncertain future, or back into the disappointing past, so that every day, for large periods of time, we can wander distractedly among our thoughts instead of attending to the here and the now. Thinking may place us at the forefront of evolution, and it may help us colonize Mars one day, but would it be an overstatement to say that overthinking is one of the big problems of our generation? Our modern comforts cushion and cosset our bodies, but there are no easy chairs on which our minds can stop and rest.

We think when we are alone. We think when we are with others. We think at work. We think at home. We think when we wash the dishes or tidy up our rooms. We think on paper. We think on our blogs. We think and think and think. The same recurrent thoughts return to us constantly under different variations, following deep-rooted thought patterns.

“I think and think and think, I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.” ― from Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, by Jonathan Safran Foer

I have neurotic tendencies – my mind can think and think, analyzing, comparing, weighing this against that, considering advantages and disadvantages, wondering what if and what if not, and so on. I can think myself into sadness about events I anticipate happening, and which never actually occur. I can think I understand myself and others, until I think I actually don’t. I think I know what I want, but then I think otherwise.

Without thinking we wouldn’t be here. We do have to think, but not all the time. Just as there are spaces between the trees in a forest – glades, meadows, clearings, footpaths – there should be empty spaces in the forest that is our mind. Yes, empty spaces: moments when we still our mind and become aware of the present moment, regardless of what we are doing or how. And I don’t mean sleep.

When’s the last time you heard the silence between two noises that came in through your window? Or felt the frothy tickle of the soapy water as you washed a dish? Or enjoyed the soft texture of your pajamas as you put them on? If you can’t remember, chances are you were too busy thinking about something or other at the time.

“Stop thinking, and end your problems.” ― Lao Tzu

Let’s make a conscious effort not to think all the time, so that our thoughts will make less noise, so that we can hear more clearly the sounds of the world and of the people around us. Let’s think when we have to, and let’s try not to think when we don’t. Let’s return to the present, becoming aware of our feet on the ground, of the position and weight of our body, of the invisible swinger in our chest that is our breathing. And let’s clear our mind of thoughts and still it. Let’s observe it, let’s watch it as it tries to link new thoughts. And let’s allow them to pass, let us not cling to them.

Don’t you feel, at least sometimes, that your mind thinks too much? Don’t you wish you had an on/off thinking switch?

lets go for online  shopping!!! 

​-Damanandeep 

-Online shopping is a form of electronic commerce which allows consumers to directly buy goods or services from a seller over the Internet using a web browser. Consumers find a product of interest by visiting the website of the retailer directly or by searching among alternative vendors using a shopping search engine, which displays the same product’s availability and pricing at different e-retailers. As of 2016, customers can shop online using a range of different computers and devices, including desktop computers, laptops, tablet computers and smartphones.

An online shop evokes the physical analogy of buying products or services at a regular “bricks-and-mortar” retailer or shopping center; the process is called business-to-consumer (B2C) online shopping. When an online store is set up to enable businesses to buy from another businesses, the process is called business-to-business (B2B) online shopping. A typical online store enables the customer to browse the firm’s range of products and services, view photos or images of the products, along with information about the product specifications, features and prices.
Online stores typically enable shoppers to use “search” features to find specific models, brands or items. Online customers must have access to the Internet and a valid method of payment in order to complete a transaction, such as a credit card, an Interac-enabled debit card, or a service such as PayPal. For physical products (e.g., paperback books or clothes), the e-tailer ships the products to the customer; for digital products, such as digital audio files of songs or software, the e-tailer typically sends the file to the customer over the Internet. The largest of these online retailing corporations are Alibaba, Amazon.com, snapdeal, and eBay.. 

Benefits  of online shopping – :

*Convenience- The convenience is the biggest perk. Where else can you comfortably shop at midnight while in your pajamas? There are no lines to wait in or shop assistants to wait on to help you with your purchases, and you can do your shopping in minutes. Online shops give us the opportunity to shop 24/7, and also reward us with a ‘no pollution’ shopping experience. There is no better place to buy informational products like e-books, which are available to you instantly, as soon as the payment goes through. Downloadable items purchased online eliminate the need for any kind of material goods at all, as well, which helps the environment!

*Better prices-:Cheap deals and better prices are available online, because products come to you direct from the manufacturer or seller without middleman being involved. Many online shops offer discount coupons and rebates as well. Apart from this, online shops are only required to collect a sales tax if they have a physical location in our state, even if we buy from a store across the world.

*More variety-: The choices online are amazing. One can get several brands and products from different sellers all in one place. You can get in on the latest international trends without spending money on airfare. You can shop from retailers in other parts of the country, or even the world, all without being limited by geography. A far greater selection of colors and sizes than you will find locally are at your disposal. Apart from that, the stock is much more plentiful. Some online shops even provisions in place to accept orders for items out of stock and ship it when the stock becomes available. You also have the option of taking your business to another online store where the product is available.

*You can send gifts more easily-:Sending gifts to relatives and friends is easy, no matter where they are. Now, there is no need to make distance an excuse for not sending a gift on occasions like birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and so forth.

*Fewer expenses-Many times, when we opt for conventional shopping, we tend to spend a lot more than planned. There are other outside expenses on things like eating out, transportation, and let’s not forget impulse buys!

*Price comparisons- Comparing and researching products and their prices is so much easier online. Also, we have the ability to share information and reviews with other shoppers who have firsthand experience with a product or retailer.

*No crowds- If you are like me, you hate crowds when you’re shopping. Especially during festivals or special events, they can be such a huge headache. Also, it tends to be more chaotic when there are more crowds out and this sometimes makes us feel rush or hurried. Grumpy, annoying, and smelly people also annoy me when I’m out shopping. Plus, parking becomes a huge issue. All of these problems can be avoided when you shop online.

*Less compulsive shopping- Often times when we’re out shopping, we end up buying things compulsively that we don’t really need. All because shop keepers pressure us or use their selling skills to compel us to make these purchases. Sometimes, we even compromise on our choices because of the lack of choices in those shops.

*Buying old or unused items at lower prices-The marketplace on the Internet makes it much easier for us to buy old or unused things at rock bottom prices. Also, if we want to buy antiques, there’s no better place to find great ones.

Laziness

​-Damandeep 

-Laziness  is a disinclination to activity or exertion despite having the ability to act or exert oneself. 

 “laziness”  is not a word that appears in the table of contents of most technical books on psychology… It is a guilty secret of modern psychology that more is understood about the motivation of thirsty rats and hungry pecking pigeons as they press levers than about the way in which poets make themselves write poems or scientists force themselves into the laboratory when the good golfing days of spring arrive.A 1931 survey found that high school students were more likely to attribute their failing performance to laziness, while teachers ranked “lack of ability” as the major cause, with laziness coming in second.Laziness is not to be confused with avolition, a negative symptom of certain mental health issues such as depression, ADHD, sleep disorders, and schizophrenia. 

Psychology behind  laziness 

Laziness is a habit rather than a mental health issue. It may reflect a lack of self-esteem, a lack of positive recognition by others, a lack of discipline stemming from low self-confidence, or a lack of interest in the activity or belief in its efficacy.
