Due to copy write issues, PowerVocab has been renamed to IntelliVocab. In order to overcome the copy write issues the developers of the best vocabulary building iPhone application have released the 1.5 version of PowerVocab with the new name of “IntelliVocab”.

In a personal interview from east coast of USA the founder of IntelliVocab (previously PowerVocab) Irfan Mohammed confirmed that the copy write issues forced him to change the name of the coolest vocabulary building app from PowerVocab to IntelliVocab. He also mentioned that the new release i.e. version 1.5 will also ensure IntelliVocab to differentiate from PowerVocab on Android. Meanwhile, he also shared the good news that Faqden Labs is very close to porting IntelliVocab (previously PowerVocab) to Android in few weeks. Hence, the company is keenly looking forward to taking over the Android market place as well.

I think this is simply a super news. Now the coolest vocabulary building IPhone application will soon be running on Android….Wow!! Also, I feel the new name is a little geeky but no complaints :0). So, all my friends who are working day and night to improve their English vocabulary or who are preparing for GMAT/GRE/SAT vocabulary don’t forget to download the best vocabulary building Iphone app with a new name called “IntelliVocab” on the Apple itune store.

“MENS SANA IN CORPORE SANO”, which is a Latin quote, means “a sound mind in a sound body”. I’m sure you would have heard similar quotes many a time, but have you ever thought about its connection with the “Leadership”, surprised? Don’t be, because leadership starts from within.  Yes, the golden rule of leadership begins with first leading thyself to a perfect state, and you cannot do great at work until you feel great about yourself.

Regretting everyday about your bulging belly, bad eating habits, and undisciplined lifestyle is only going to make you feel miserable about yourself. Good fitness habits will make you look better, feel stronger and fill you with plenty of energy. It is a fact that you cannot make someone feel good until you feel good about yourself, a trait very essential in a good leader. You can’t be a source of positive energy if you have no energy.

A good workout will not only improve your health, but also help you think more clearly, boost creativity and manage relentless stress that seems to dominate each day of your professional life. Here is a quote, which makes perfect sense- “Exercise is an insurance policy that we have taken out on our health, and each day we workout, we are paying the premium”- as I read somewhere.

Care for yourself, and you will be able to give more to others. With your good health you guarantee to be an effective leader filled with positive thoughts enjoyable to be around. It is very important for you to first achieve your fitness, in order to achieve your career goals. And if you think- there is no time to work out, no time to plan healthy meals then you better get rid of those excuses.

So, buckle up and don’t shy away from adding an additional goal of being Fit and Healthy next quarter. Put on your running shoes and live a life lot better and more productive.

Go Ahead and Get Fit To Lead !!
