Commitments!

1.jpg

In today’s lives, where we’ve all got immense work load and a list of tasks hanging around for the day, it’s difficult to commit for our own betterment. Difficult to take even the smallest steps in the direction of our own growth. And thus, in such times, it becomes nearly impossible to stick to our own commitments.

To be dedicated enough even after the exuberance we committed for a goal in has left us, is a tough task. And taking the decision to be dedicated is itself a battle. But we all know and we all understand that commitment is really important not just as the source of guarantee for others but for ourselves too. Because either a task is done or not done there is no in-between and we all clearly understand that. Thus, it becomes a great deal when it’s said and done or done and called out for.

It feels such a joy for me when I can proudly showcase my work and have the gratitude for having done it within time. It’s not only joyous, I get a great amount of time for myself later too, to do more things that make me happy and make me successful at the end of the day. It’s definitely a proud moment and then one can monkey around the way one likes too. 😛

Be committed and make sure you’re having fun later on! 🙂

The Keyboard!

1....jpg

               Have you ever noticed your keyboard well enough except for purposes like learning to type or to clean it or to look for a specific key? No, right? At least I didn’t, I remember I’ve always used keyboards just to type or operate the computer and nothing else.

For, a person like me who works all day long on the computer that’s quite a normal thing to do. But what’s quite staggering is, we never tend to learn something valuable from our keyboard. I know, what you’re thinking. Typing is quite a valuable skill. Yes, I agree with that. But, let’s go deep into what I mean by something valuable here.

A few days ago, during an Exam, I was asked to find something artistic, in a keyboard. The question required us to list down the important features of a keyboard and why one found them so necessary. To list all those attributes of a keyboard that made it user-friendly. Like every other person, I jotted the important features, the design characters of the keys, the feel of it and what not. But what I could have never imagined was the lessons a keyboard could teach every person who knew how to use it.

The very first key of a keyboard, asks a person to stop being an ESCAPist, because right after that there is a world full of chances to take. Moving on, the largest key defines how we need a definite SPACE and how we have to provide it. Then there are these two twin or repetitive important keys that not tell us but also remind us how ENTERing different places is important. Coming next in queue, the ALT twin keys keep making us understand the importance of alternatives and choices in our lives. The CTRL twins tell us that too much control never works. The CAPS LOCK and the NUMBER LOCK make us believe that nothing in the world can take an individual’s value away. The BACKSPACE reminds us almost each minute, that we can always learn from our mistakes. The SHIFT key teaches us how one can lift other people in life. And the TAB key keeps telling us how to jump from one position to the other efficiently.

There’s so much more a keyboard teaches us in different ways. The INSERT, the DELETE, the HOME key and the END one too. Let’s START to look differently and be someone new. 🙂

Beginner!

               In life generally I’ve always been a slow learner not in terms of my teachers or by comparison, just through the result of self-assessment. Being slow at learning has never disheartened me. I guess that is because, I quite enjoy the process of learning new things, languages, sports, art forms and whatever I can get my hands on.

I’m usually proud, not the ‘egotistical’ pride but the ‘i did something today’ pride. And that comes in me with a motivation to do much better the next day or further. I’ve seen people feeling bad about themselves not being able to perform well, while that never happened with me. Not because being slow or weak didn’t affect me, but because I knew that practice was the route to excellence.

Everyone is talented with something or the other. But at some point everyone is a beginner. No one is born excellent. We all have to work hard to get there. And once you’ve committed yourself to it. You will eventually get there.

Allow yourself to be a beginner, no one starts off being excellent. 🙂

A Full Plate!

               Honestly, my plate is too full these days to have the dessert of writing this blog. While all the work is dishes on my plate, writing here is such a peaceful big bowl of Belgian ice cream. But the scenario here is that I’m not quite able to complete my plate to reach to my bowl of ice cream. So what’s the plan? What will make me finish my plate and reach my big delicious bowl?

Well, the goal is quite simple, earlier what I used to do was plan my work schedule according to the difficulty attached to each task. Which soon became my habit. I would do all the difficult tasks at the beginning and the simpler ones at the end. But that doesn’t happen with food right? We have the least filling course first to have a four course meal. Thus, I thought of completing the easier starters first to get to the end of my meal, finish my plate and also be able to eat my dessert.

I guess it quite helped me and if your plate is too full too, try the starters first. 😉

Missed!

               Do you feel sad about missing something important? Missing someone special? Or even missing a show you like to watch and you follow? Well, I quite do and I hate missing or waiting. But at times, you can’t be everywhere or do everything, right? That’s where prioritizing comes in and one feels helpless but he or she has to choose.

These I feel are the most difficult choices of my life. Especially, when I choose work over people and then miss them. When I choose assignments over family get togethers and miss all the love and fun. Fortunate or not we have to make these decisions and we tend to go into the direction for ourselves. Right? Wrong, I’d say!

I know what’s important for us, most people won’t understand. Yet, what is that thing we are quite waiting for? Would I miss work if I’m with people who love me? I would just miss my salaries. And family will stay by my side whether I have the money or not.

So consider yourself in this choice now. Think again before taking the decision. Because everything can come again, except the life we’re living and the time that’s passing. Create memories, hold blessings and have stories to tell your kids. Money can definitely buy a lot but happiness. 🙂

Three Dimensional!

               For a 90’s kid like me, 3D would always remain a special something to see, touch or feel. Yeah yeah, I know, in a world of so many dimensions today, I’m talking just about a three dimensional something. I know this is a little weird for some of you. But trust me growing up looking around at various shapes and figures and people it’s fun to notice how things look and feel at times.

A dimensionless world would be so plain and so blank if I go to imagine. No really, imagine a world full of line figures and line drawings. Ugh! I definitely wouldn’t like it that way. Science plus life is something so cool. My knowledge of dimensions and creating more of them is such an amazing thing.

So much to see, hear, think and learn. Isn’t it? 🙂 

 

Workouts!

               After a lot of weight gain trials recently, I understood how beneficial workouts were for my lean body. With regular workouts I soon realised how they also helped my dopamine levels rise and make me a more satisfied person even in bad health or tough times.

It wasn’t easy at first to just get up in the mornings and reach my destination. Soon the story shifted from hitting the running track to actually doing the exercises and today I don’t feel lazy or tired at all. Today it’s not important if I go the extra mile or not, but what is important, is whether I enjoy myself or not.

It has become a very happy life story since I’ve started my workout training. Even though I haven’t gained much weight but I’ve definitely gained a lot of happiness. They always said, “Tire your body to charge your mind.” and today, I find it absolutely true and understand the value of a healthy body and a happy mind.

Try tiring your body a little and see how it works for your mind! 🙂
