Remember we all came with an expiry date. Just that we don’t know when.
We know we are going to leave this world, pretty soon or later, yet, we constantly fret about trivial things of today.
The greatest asset we have is TIME. As we squander it, we shall realize later and regret. The next greatest asset we have is COURAGE. We have to bundle courage in doing things we actually love so that we make a meaning out of this life. Time will be irrelevant that way if you are living your dream.
Remember, the goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.
Sure we must. But that can’t be the end goal.
It’s just a means to reach a higher goal.
In a similar context, Howard Roark (a young independent architect in Fountain Head) quips,
“I don’t intend to build in order to have clients; I intend to have clients in order to build.”
Your end goal should define your truest passion. No one should be able to buy it from you.
But most people squat down when they hit a decent patch in life. The first car, the first house, the first wife, you think your life is complete.
Only 30 years later you realize, instead of the secured life you’ve had, you could have had a sensational one.
Coz’ both bring you to death anyway.
Evolution is painful. Most organisms on Earth would agree with this.
But they didn’t stop though.
A lot of the times, we falter and fall. Like my favorite line in Batman that says,
“And why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” We should learn to pick ourselves up, no-matter-what, and for that we need one BIG thing. GOAL.
Your goal is like an amoeba initially, without any shape. Give the ameoba a shape, push it through evolution, only then it can reach the homosapien stage. And thats when you are called a man.
Every dream/desire has an evolution process. Most people kill it in its womb. Let your idea fly. Dont be a cow.
Like Seth Godin says, as we travel in a car, we notice the green meadows, the muddy road, the large pine trees, the shining sun, and a huge herd of cattle.
After a while we almost forget everything above; it’s not because they all became invisible,
It’s because, now, we saw a purple cow.
