There was a time when I was very binary with my relations. As time passed I came to realize that I am missing out by ignoring the grey areas. Initially either someone was IN or OUT and no second opinion about it.
Then I “matured” in to realizing that we are merely humans and as humans we make mistakes and we learn. We evolve ( hopefully) in to a better person. So everyone deserves a chance.
However, I saw myself making excuses for people. Justifying my perception by interpreting their actions incorrectly. You can see that may not have gone too well.
It is only when you realize that there is a limited amount of time left for you that you really begin to iron out the issues and concerns which have lingered on for so long. Procrastination is punishment in itself.
Lets just assume, I had a two year deadline. What would I do?
I have prepared a list of things that I would do by using this opportunity of limiting my time and not imagining any world beyond this deadline.
- Express the truth
- Take care of my IN people
- Make amends with the OUT crowd
- Try to live and enjoy the time I have
- Improve my productivity in life and at work
- Learn as much as I can
- Read and write.
There is also a lot I have simply summarized within the ambit of the above and I leave it open for anyone to theorize or improvise 🙂
One thing I keep stumbling on, and I may be absolutely wrong, however it is my take – Money is a very vital element in general well being. It is easy to make counter arguments. However nothing erases the necessity of money 😉
