Okay! A week long break from blogging. First time in the history of this blog!
But never mind, I’ll make up for this.
So the reason for the miss-out was that I was admitted in hospital 8 days back for appendix surgery. Got discharged yesterday. And now I feel a bit active in the mornings so getting back to work drop by drop.
Rest all okay. It was a part of life. Came and went. Chill 🙂
Looking forward to talking to you daily now.
Just four minutes before the work hours were about to get over, I got a call.
It was a concall, and we discussed on the topic we were supposed to.
Then the third party, who was from outside the team, just said “Bye bye” and hung down the phone.
Nothing like, “Okay, let’s go!” or “Cool, let’s experiment and see” et al, just coming to the point and finishing it off.
Though we just cannot do this in all the calls, we may definitely do this in 50-70% of the calls.
Imagine what would happen to all the decisions of the day like that!
If you look at your day, you’ll find several things to make the radical shift.
And to look at all of them might sound demeaning.
So here’s the way to change your life:
Change just one thing in your day that causes you most pain.
Just one. Not three. Not five. Just one.
Maybe you check your phone just for ten minutes in the morning and it may get your schedule haywire.
Maybe you have your dinner quite late.
Maybe you get distracted easily in your environment.
What is it that causes you the most pain?
Tackling just one thing will lead to domino effect of life altering habits.
When I had initially learnt to cook, I’d multiply the amount of water and spices by the number of people who were eating the food.
Since I knew the perfect ingredients for my dal rice, i.e., what I cook for myself in Noida – while cooking the same for my parents at home I’d just put 3X water and salt.
Thinking it would work.
Except that it didn’t.
It requires lesser water than 3X of a single person’s water. It is just building up.
In life if we want to do something that seems humongous, we just need to begin the difficult process. As we keep taking small steps, we realise in the latter half of the journey that later you don’t have to make those 3X or 4X of efforts at the start.
The compound interest of your efforts will be more than enough to make you reach the destination.
You just need to start. Will you?
Shouting out loud works.
And then it says the trust of the person shouted at.
Our goal is to go far, together. Not fast and lonely.
Letting your life and lifestyle make its imprint, instead of shouting to get things done – is a great thing to begin with. That never made ends.
If any question had a straight answer, life would not be the way it is today.
And the way it is today, is how it is supposed to be.
The meaning of life is to fall in love with the process. The meaning of life is to take action, only then you will enjoy the pauses.
If you feel lost, if you don’t know where do you want to go, if you don’t know what’s next, here’s the reality: you can find it.
You have found out a lot of answers in the past.
If you are willing to take action, you will figure out the answer.
If you are not taking action because you are lost, then you have already lost.
No action = Assured Failure
Action = Experience or Success. Both are valuable.
If you wanna know what’s your problem, just try spending some time with yourself in solitude. That’s the real game.
All your weaknesses will come to the surface.
All your problems will come out with a revelation: that the source of them is common.
And when the source of that is common, the solution has to one.
What is that one, has to be decided and implemented by the one reading this right now.
“I tell them to do this a lot, they don’t listen to my advice.” We think this a lot about other people, don’t we?
A bigger question to consider could be:
Do you keep a tab of what advice do you give to yourself? Do you execute on that advice?
If the answer is “no”, now you know why they don’t execute.
If you do execute on your own advice, there’s no reason others won’t.
Congratulations! Your wait is over!
The result you had been looking for, is right here and right now!!
We all wait for reading this kind of line.
A better question could be: How are our days and actions aligned with what we want?
There is a lot of psychology that goes behind everything.
Everything means what you do, with whom you do it, why do you do it; and more than anything else, what is it that you’re doing.
So if you find yourself doing something or seeing something that you aren’t very proud of or that you shouldn’t be saying, that’s probably because you need to change your company.
Just reading this you people think that it’s not possible.
Well everything that you once thought impossible once is just a simple thing for you today.
What you really need to do is make a decision and not only make a decision. Also, make a decision in your habits that no matter what, you will not do it and when you make that decision every single day just watch your life change.
