Saving your money doesn’t make you rich.Investing it does.Because the saved-up money will be used-up one day,but invested money will keep growing (with slight fluctuations of course).You only come across savings when you have done some sort of investing in the first place,right?
In the same way:
Saving your time doesn’t make you rich in terms of quality of life.Investing that time to inculcate new skills and experiences does.Because the saved-up time will be used-up one day,but the invested time will keep-up your growth.You have the luxury of idle time only when you have already done some sort of investment prior to it to save time in the future,right?
Turning your bad habit into a good habit is more difficult than inculcating a fresh new habit itself.
Working hard is good.But working hard smartly is more important.
We focus on worrying about our problems,rather than experimenting out creative solutions.
Being lazy is quite productive.You find the best short cuts to get your work done.
There’s a big difference between ‘only representation’ and ‘valid representation’.We see a diversity of people from different country,race,caste,religion,color,gender,class and so on doing a variety jobs nowadays without any restriction and discrimination.But they are getting representation not recognition under the pretext that it is to promote diversity in job culture rather than help them show off their skills.This implicit form of discrimination is difficult to criticize because it is difficult to recognize.In early days we had more of an explicit form of discrimination which was easy for everyone to see and criticize.This hidden discrimination is a potential form of overt discrimination.We need to stop it while we can or we will be back to the square one.
Internet is shifting people from the reality of democracy to the fantasies of authoritarianism.We are getting used to being surrounded by a particular view internally and externally without batting an eye to the alternatives.Change is difficult.Change in mind,body,environment,social network and so on to adapt to a new view.Very exhausting.What we don’t realize that this exhaustion is a price to pay for awareness.Surrounding ourselves with things we like,follow & prefer is not a bad thing but we need to recognise that those are not the ONLY things in the world.What feels right for me may not feel right for someone else but they must have a reason to believe it in the first place.We don’t dig deeper into something we don’t care about and hence don’t get to know why it’s significant.What is the stranger to me compared to a loved one? What is the stranger’s view to me compared to my view? Feeding our brains consciously and unconsciously with things we like manipulates us to turn a blind eye to other things and live in our own imagination.And while we do this our reality starts to crumble because we forget that everything is connected.Take out one brick and the whole castle will topple over.These intricacies are hard to notice but they build our society and we must acknowledge them all even if we don’t want to accept them completely.That’s what democracy is about.
Our ancestors weren’t wrong per se.They were just outdated.Whatever conclusions they drew about the world came from their observations and their observations were again dependent on the tools they used.I don’t need to emphasise the difference between a horse and bike to demonstrate the variance.Every new day we update ourselves and each other with new knowledge and experiences.This has been the tradition so far and will carry on for years to come.Whatever answers we think are right,wrong or neutral (even not answered at all) are that way because we haven’t developed the methods and instruments to help us reach the final answer.
People with disability wish that people would say “thank you” to them for help,instead of them saying it to you on a daily basis.
Where the funds go,there the wills go.
