Life ...

Life is not about the amounts of breaths you take ...
Its about those moments that take your breath away ...

- Will Smith in the movie HITCH

Couldn't help posting this ...

I have lods of blog posts ... in my mind ...
and hardly any time to transfer them from my gray matter to my blog ...

Rich & Poor

Read a nice quote today ...

Rich and poor are first created in the mind.

A poor man asks, "How much will it COST me?"
A rich man asks, "How much will it MAKE me?"

As soon as i read the quote, something happened.
Not somethig new ... something which often happens to me .. inside me ...

The entrepreneur , the business inside me starting a dialogue with the salaried me once again ... trying to convince him that he was on the wrong track ...

Interesting they are ... both are a part of me ... yet they think so differently ...
both have different priorities and different value systems ...
sometimes its difficult to manage both of them ...

One uses his brains and takes logical and somewhat selfish (or more specifically self-centred) decisions. Its concern is My Success, My wealth, My future, My comfort, My contribution to the world (mind you .. intentions are all good ... but the focus is me ) .... Its more spontaneous ...

Other is more heart oriented ... considers feelings into decisions ... not only mine but also of others feeling like that of my family ... thinks carefully .. is calculative ... will evaluate the conditions and feelings ... and then make or design a solution and a decision ....

Neither is right nor wrong ... good nor bad ... they are just the two sides of a debating competition going on within me at times ...

As a refree ... it is often difficult to choose ... one is a risk taker and the other seeks safety zone for the benefit of others attached to me (my family) ...

Had i been alone ... no one to care about ... I would be successful (money wise, career wise, business wise) ... BUT ... such a success would meaningless ... I wont be able share it anybody ...

I remember a guy ... who always used to tell his wife that his dream was to own a huge mansion and a couple of great cars like the Mercedes S Class and Bently and all ... he became a workoholic to achive his dreams ...

And you know what ... he did achieve it ... He did manage a huge mansiona and a state of the art technology equipped Mercedes ...

He drives it ALONE now ... his wife long ago left him ...

Now you decide ... Who is RICH ? Who is Poor ?

Why do I Blog ??

Frankly speaking ... I dont know ...

I was bitten by the Blog Bug way bak in NITIE ... its pretty infectious ... Blogging was getting popular at NITIE in those days and i got to know about it from Nikhil ... and I started off a journey ...

It has been a pleasurable journey ... with some very regular posts as well as some large breaks ...

Off late .. I have wanted to blog but time and will-power were simply not enough ...

And a question struck me ... Why do I blog ??

And franly speaking ... I dont know ...

Why does blogging go down in the list of priorities in life ... my life at least ... why do other things supercede and blogging is what gets affected most ...

why is that I have some 8-10 blogpost themes in my mind and I have made none ...

why ? why ?? why ???

I will have to find out ...

B'coz if i dont ... i will probably stop blogging ...

I am not comfortable in doing something unless i believe in it ...

Its not that I have been blogging for the past 2-3 years without any purpose or without understanding why I have been blogging ....

Its just that times have changed ... priorities in life have changed ... the time I have in hand had shrunk to miniscule amounts ...

In the new context and the new situation ... Blogging is not one of my priorities ...

I need to either convinve myself about my blogging needs or else .. .. .

Hope to get my clarity on this soon ...
