The Gift of Ekadashi, the 11th day of the lunar cycle

On January 28th, 2022, I received a gift and it was the number 207. It led me to think of a pattern like below:

01X9=009
12X9=108
23X9=207
34X9=306
45X9=405
56X9=504
67X9=603
78X9=702
89X9=801
100X9=900

I thought of extending this to have a more general pattern using 112, 1112 etc by adding 111 or 1111 instead of adding 11. The pattern worked! I thought it was amazing.

Then I thought of trying with 2 as a starting. I was surprised to get this pattern.

02X9=18
13X9=117
24X9=216
35X9=315
46X9=414
57X9=513
68X9=612
79X9=711
90X9=810

Then I thought extending this pattern further as well.

102X9=918
113X9=1017
124X9=1116
135X9=1215
146X9=1314
157X9=1413
168X9=1512
179X9=1611
190X9=1710

Do you want to see another pattern ?

1X9=9
11X9=99
2X9=18
12X9=108
3X9=27
13X9=117
4X9=36
14X9=126
5X9=45
15X9=135
6X9=54
16X9=144
7X9=63
17X9=153
8X9=72
18X9=162
9X9=81
19X9=171

We can extend this further by adding to it further like 119 or 1119 etc. 😀

Why create a Brand and Mission Statement?

A brand is not just a logo, name, or a slogan to go with it. In today’s world branding is a complex entity that is of key importance to gain market presence. Here are some reasons to consider:

  • Emotionally connects your consumers with your product
  • Clear delivery of your message
  • Confirms your credibility
  • Motivates the buyer to buy
  • Creates user loyalty

Branding not only creates loyal customers, but also loyal employees. A well-designed and aligned brand builds trust and confidence in people. It helps employees understand the purpose of the organization they work for and feel part of something significant.

Let us go through a sample exercise on our own to experience this concept. See below:
