While you’re busy running this mad race, slow down and think, is it even worth it?

Amidst all this turmoil of running for forms and demand drafts and making huge career decisions, I feel inadequate with whatever we have because there is someone still ahead of you in the race. But I strongly believe that no matter what we achieve in life, we must strive to be happy and satisfied. So, while you’re busy running this mad race, slow down and think to yourself, is it worth compromising your present for your future?

When we reach Class 9, they say it’s the most vital class and if we give our best, the remaining three years become slightly easier. Then in Class 10, we’re told that being the first year of public examination, we must take it seriously now. Then in Class 11, they say is the first leap towards building a successful career, and unlike the rest, we must work hard now. In Class 12, the words, ‘it’s now or never’, are constantly told and re-told. This process just doesn’t end, when you are in college, or are looking for a job or are working; there is always this one more step to take.
We must work hard, yes — give our best shot in everything. But then whatever the results are, we must not miss out on the beautiful visions on the way. Live the moment because it’s important to keep it real!
