I questioned myself whether I can really not live without knowing about-
“What is the latest product launch from apple?”
“Who is the new CEO of Yahoo?”
“Who has how much share holding in x,y,z companies?”
Quite often I feel that it’s wasteful to know so much. A little information is just enough.
There is abundance of information everywhere. Facebook, twitter, website, portals, etc. just add to the woes. It is important to know what information I need and simply ignore others. It’s very very important to say NO and neglect or ignore few things. What I read on Google Reader suggests my interests in life. The blogs I read, the people I follow on twitter, the people I have on network on LinkedIn speak about what I’m set out to become. My interests have evolved over a period of time and I believe it’s absolutely normal. Like when I set out, I wanted to be a pilot, then I wanted to be a <geek>, then I wanted to be an entrepreneur … The point I make here is no matter what you want to do, make sure you have sufficient knowledge in that domain first, keeping others aside. I make sure I read about entrepreneurship firstly, my passions secondly and anything else later. Setting priority is the key.
I did find it difficult to keep up with so much having just 24 hours a day in hand. I have been attending college, working on personal and client projects at the same time. Managing time thus became really important. I was feeling like a slave until I met someone in my life who has totally changed the way I think and I live. With the same thought in mind, I did a small experiment the other day ie. chose not to use BBM for 2 days. It worked out really well. I don’t particularly care about the red blinking light on my phone all the time now. I can do what I’m doing in peace without getting interrupted by useless messages which don’t even matter most of the times. I have disabled notifications for facebook, twitter & emails. And I don’t feel like a slave anymore!! *big smile*
“I’m sure there is nothing in the world that cannot wait for some to get responded.”
Yes, even I have realized that I had been wasting a lot of time learning about things that don’t really matter practically. Thanks to my friend who inspires me & teaches how important it is to live life to the fullest and just not lead it.
I’m set out to lead each and every moment of my life whether working, playing or just hanging out (horse riding, boating or even sitting idle at a temple.) Life is so much fun & 24 hours aren’t just enough to live!
