My Time, My Life

Sun18Jul10

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
– Steve Jobs

Last week I noticed something very interesting on my worktable. I noticed a hive constructed by a wasp at the tip of my pencil! The pencil was blunt and obviously I had not used it for a long time. I was about to destroy the hive. I almost did it. But something struck me-my attitude to life! I asked myself why the wasp chose this pencil to construct the hive and not another pencil adjacent to it. The answer was very simple- I did not use this pencil and hence was available for the wasp to do what it wanted on the same!

Can I blame the wasp and complain and criticize? Isn’t the nature of a wasp to construct its nest on any convenient place? The problem is not the wasp, but my attitude with reference to my resources! I did not use it and it was used my the wasp!

I learnt a very important lesson in my life. If I don’t use my time to produce what I want to produce in my life, someone will use my time what they want in their life! Isn’t a simple common sense? We have to fill our mind with positive thoughts and work out plans and strategies to reach the same- no matter what others may say. I will have to find out what I can do to make my dream come true. If I don’t do this, others will fill my mind with such thoughts as to how impossible is my dream. It all depends on what I want to focus my mind on.

Our mind has intuition and knows how to get what we want in life. All that is required is to invest all my resources on what I want and be conscious of the same. Else, the same resource will be used by someone else to produce what they want in life!
