Libraries must provide more books rather than invest in new technology such as computers and e-books.

We have entered the digital era and with it the urge of digitalizing each and every thing on earth has seen a maddening rush. From books to shopping, every thing has become digital and newer technologies have replaced the older methods. It is in these times that few people believe that libraries must expend more money on books than building sophisticated technologies. In my opinion, the middle road must be taken i.e. books must be the primary focus of libraries, however, technology must not be avoided either.
There are people of the opinion that a library must focus on having more books on their shelf rather better technology on their hand. There are several reasons behind it. Firstly, not every book is available in the digital format. For instance, some specialized books are still available only in paper back format. Secondly, paper books help to concentrate better. Reading online tempts people to search for new books, visit websites and look up links rather than focusing on the book they are reading. Thirdly, a book is a sort of inspiration. Seeing a shelf full of books and topics is inspiring and stimulates imagination.
On the other hand, technology is advantageous in many ways. The same amount of information can be stored in a lesser space when stored in digital format. This means that we require more space to store the paper books, which often turn out to be an overhead.
Secondly, looking books online is often less tedious and compared to roaming about in library. One can easily flip through all the books he/she requires before leaving the space. Thirdly, Internet is more vast than a library, therefore, getting an information is both fast and effective using it.
Overall, in my view point, both, technology as well as paper books have their own advantages/disadvantages. However, neglecting either of them might not be the right thing and one must try to balance between both of them.
Directors and managers of organizations are often older people. Some people say that it is better for younger people to be leaders.

A generation ago, the big organizations of the countries were run by old people, the ones regarded as the experienced. However, with coming times, new ventures are getting established by the younger people. With this, there are two opinions formed, some believe that an organization is better run by older people because of their experience, however others believe that younger people bring with them dynamism that is required for taking the organization to higher levels. I believe, what matters is the passion and the vision to take the company to newer heights.
Young people running a company bring with them great benefits. Firstly, they are more up-to date and in touch with the modern world. This brings an added advantage to the organization in terms that they replace the more redundant work with the new better technologies. Secondly, they are often more dynamic and forward thinking which makes them open to new ideas. Thirdly, leadership demands strength, both mentally and physically. Young leaders are often more fitter than their older counter parts making them a better choice for the role of a leader.
However, older generation has their own advantages. Firstly, with age comes experience which is very critical for the job of a leader. Even more, older people have more authority which is needed to manage and lead people. Secondly, the job of a leader is that of responsibility and this sense of responsibility is more often found in the older counterparts.
Overall, age is just a number. A leader is a person who has a vision and can lead a team. Both young and old people bring with them their benefits to the organization, however,in the end it is the passion to work that makes the company successful.
Success in business can be assured if you have great marketing and promotion. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
We are living in an era which is marked by digital revolution. From the daily routines to business digital world has impacted everything. With this change, some people believe that for a business to be successful, it must have excellent marketing and promotion. In my opinion, advertising is always the second most important thing, primary being focusing on the main product/ service.
Marketing a business has great benefits. Firstly, a large group of people get to know about it. Obviously, the more the awareness, more will be your customers. Secondly, it brings customers on the right side. A customer is able to make more knowledge able guess of the product after seeing an advertisement. Thirdly, a market space gets created for the business. For instance, when android phones came, they were not the utmost priority of everyone. It was because of their promotion that they got noticed and their need was felt.
However, simply having promoted a product is not enough. One surely gets to know about the business but after a certain time, it all depends on how good the product/service is. Even more, if the marketing team promotes a product in a way that is different from the actual product, it leads to distrust among consumers about the business.
Overall, in my opinion, we as individuals are quick to make decisions and the marketing of a product surely plays a very important role. However, it is not the only deciding factor. The final success of a business depends both on the efficiency of product and its marketing.
Some people believe that the sure shot way to succeed in business is to have a unique product.

A successful business is either built on a product or on a service and the choice is always unique. Some believe that having a unique product is the key to succeed. Whereas others claim that it depends on how well an individual can run and understand the business. Although there have been great business built on a product, I believe it all depends on the team building the business.
Having a unique product surely places great advantage to the business. Firstly, there is no competition. For instance, if I am the only person who sells android phones, it is obvious that anyone who needs it will buy it from me, making my business rise. Secondly, a unique idea brings with it different ways of doing a particular thing. Like when Steve Jobs created the first digital computer, it led to many other inventions like ipads, iphones, itunes etc.
However, merely having a unique product does not make a business successful. For instance- if two companies are selling the same product, the ones with better quality or service will be preferred more for obvious reasons. Even more, two companies selling the same product can have different business models and that makes the difference.
Overall, I believe an uncommon product does gives some added advantage but in the end it all boils down to the way a business is being done. The better the methodology, more successful the business will be.
