Muthuswamy N


A management consultant with a proven track record over 35 years of driving business success among large and small corporations as well as business entrepreneurs and young entrepreneurs through innovative strategies based on the principles of energy.

He has over 16 years of industry experience with Voltas and IBM India prior to over 35 years of consulting experience in India. He was executive director of Baroda Productivity Council that grew 7 times in 9 years under his leadership, and made it the largest local productivity council in India. Presently he is the Chairman of Quest Systems Private Limited – a general management consultancy company founded by him. Quest specializes in “effectiveness” using principles of energy discovered and developed by Mr Muthuswamy, that drive effectiveness in any field. The improvement effectiveness comes as a result of re-engineering our thinking processes-the quest way- that generate surprisingly simple and practical ideas, methods and solutions in home and business life, resulting in success and happiness.

Throughout his career, Mr. Muthuswamy has used principles of energy and has helped recover companies in virtual death-bed to roaring successes. One of the companies which was in the brink of bankruptcy, and had accumulated loss over seven years, of more than its capital, turned profitable within 18 months of the engagement. It is now a thriving corporation with a record 500% growth over a 2 year-period. He has used the same energy laws to guide over 100,000 students – both school career guidance and other career guidance services -in career paths that match not just the aptitudes but their interests and personalities, receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback. PEGS (Or Personnel Effectiveness and Growth Strategy,) a workshop which uses principles of energy to change attitudes, has been a hall mark of training effectiveness, in the sense it produces visible results of attitude change in participants. this program has benefited thousands of workers and staff in several industries and has been a roaring success.

He realized that these energy principles of effectiveness that evolved throughout his career, based as they are on energy laws, are applicable to any field of human endeavor and across differing cultures. He also realized that implementation of these principles in actual practice become far more easy and certain, if solutions are built into the computers, hence he founded Quest Systems as a company that offers unique systems for better effectiveness. Our software division is wholly involved in building effectiveness solutions only. Our solutions have effectiveness algorithms built into each one of them.

Smashwords Interview

Your title " Success through Opposites" is intriguing. What does it mean in a nutshell?
We have found that success eludes us if the thinking process we use is faulty. In many cases our thinking process is oriented towards what we think is right and good. We avoid vistas because we might have to use what we think is wrong and bad. In a way we are slaves to one opposite- what we think is right and good- and hate the other opposite -what we think is wrong and bad. This thinking process leads to mental blocks when we face situations in life where the opposite of what we think is right is the right choice. The situations we face in our life are not in our hand, but the response to the situations we face on our life is only in our hand. we are unable to give the most appropriate response to the situation we face - either in official or personal life. This happens because of a recording process on our mind right from the time we are born.

The book describes this process and suggests a way out - the way is simple and practical. The method ensures that one of the opposites we dislike also gets recorded on our mind. So we are not averse to any opposite also. Now when any situation arises in front of us in our lives, our mind is free and open to consider any option and its opposite too, instead of considering only one opposite as was happening earlier. So our mind starts thinking in opposites, is not blocked by and is a slave to only one opposite and is thus freed from it clutches and is able to arrive at the right decision and take action. So instead of just one of a pair of opposites being the master and you the slave, you become the master and both of a pair of opposites become tools in your hand to get success and therefore happiness to you.

The thinking process called thinking in opposites is time tested and proven- both in personal and official lives.

The topic of my book- particularly the process of thinking - " thinking in opposites"- has helped so many people that they prevailed on me to write a book so that many more can get benefited. So I wrote my first book when I was 67 years old.
The concept in the book in simple, easy to practice and geo-political, geo-cultural free. It has no religious preachings, though I may quote from religions to support my line of reasoning. The applicability is to the entire world and in both personal and official lives.
So I thought why not spend my time in writing the book so that if benefits many more people as it has benefited people who have pursued this approach, practiced it and benefited from it? .
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. I write for them and with them in mind. I am fulfilling their wish in writing this book as they want my book to reach as many people as people. I am fulfilling their command to me. They tell me the thinking process I have come out with is a very original, simple and practical and above all produces results.They say it has helped them immensely in their decision making process, changing their personality traits to more them positive and desirable, and helped them immensely to be far more successful and happy.

Effective management and living!
There are three types of people among us: those who look only at the inputs those who look only at the output those who look at the process only, who believe once the process is rigorously followed the output will be okay, These 3 books concern the fourth type whom we may call the effective people who look at the input, process and output and synthesize them into one whole and produce awesome result- producing end with very less input. These books are about how to re-engineer our thinking process to become the fourth kind. We believe these three books in the “Success through” series will give an alternative, integrated, energy laws- based and culture-free thinking process to us that would guide us in managing our lives – both personal and official – and give us great happiness, without the constraints of verticals, nationalities, religion, ethnicity, isms and race coming in the way. This is because all the three books use the laws of energy that are inviolable and timeless in creating this thinking process. For the same reason this thinking process is also timeless. Indeed the result is an unparalleled internal happiness that we as practitioners can actually feel

Don’t we often wonder why our sincere, genuine, out of the heart and immense efforts result in failure? In other instances, we achieve unexpectedly large success with relative ease? Contrary to normal belief, factors outside our control do not play a significant role in explaining our success, factors well within our control do. To become masters we should put our mind in order by vaccinating it!
