Some More Little Lessons

  • No matter how great your work or your job is, it is, by no means, more important than your family and friends. These are the people who really care for you, to whom you actually matter, who should actually matter to you. It's really important that you see things in perspective, know how important everything is, and why those things are important. If you work really hard and make a lot of money, with the intention of giving your family a good life, and, in the process, neglect them, stop spending quality time with them, well, you need to stop and think about what you are actually doing to your life.
  • Amidst all your responsibilities at work, at home, towards society, make it a point to chalk out some time on a regular basis just for yourself. Do something you like doing, relax, cool off, introspect, whatever catches your fancy.
  • Let the people who matter to you know that they matter. Sometimes an expression of that sort can make someone's day. And sometimes, you may not express a sentiment of that sort, taking it for granted, and realize only when it is too late that you actually needed to express it. Expressing your affection for your family and friends and family on a regular basis helps maintain a strong feel good factor. And it really helps if you know exactly when one of your loved ones need to be told how special they are to you, and you do tell them at that point in time.
