Life's elixir!!

Time is the most precious thing one can have. Time is a part of our life. If we are spending time with someone/something that means we are giving them/it a part of our life. Well, my question is can we have something with out leaving out something?. One of the decision we need to make before spending our precious time is to think "Is it worth?". Suppose you want to score good marks, you have to study, right? So, you have to drop your interest in doing other things for studying. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy and have fun, you need to drop your study for that. Can we have both? I guess, it is not possible. The most successful person, I guess, is one who can choose the right amount of time for these kind of different things. what happens in the normal scenario is one may give more time to something so that that becomes the priority in his/her life. The result is that one become extraordinarily success with his/her career, but a flop in personal life. Similarly, one may succeed in his/her personal life, but will be a failure in his/her career. Life's elixir is all about mixing in the right proportions at the right time, so that you can enjoy your life with all its sweetness and flavours. So, whatya think?

  4. everyone misses something in their life...no one can have everything. Striking a good balance and making the most of what we have is the key to true happiness.

    Living without something is living with something else.


    Keshi.

  5. Ooh! Someone's getting all philosophical! LOL! Yes, time is indeed very precious.

    In Economics, we have this concept. 'Opportunity Cost' which is the amount of one thing that you have to sacrifice to get some amount of another thing. Yeah, life's all about getting that opportunity cost equation right!

    enjoy your life with all its "sweetness and flavors"

    Well written! :)

  6. You are indeed right that life should be balanced! Focusing on one area without realising losing many other around is sad. And why not...studies and fun can be balanced too. One can ofcourse have fun, outings, partyin and at the same time studies! Thats POSSIBLE! and I am seeing it, experiencing it :) Its all abt how you like to keep things in ur time table.

  12. keshi,

    Good point.

    ***Living without something is living with something else.

    But you need to verify whether that something else is worth your life..

    I don't think it's possible. You can do only one thing at a time. how can you study and at the same time have fun. Of course you can study late into night and have fun in morning, but my question was if you don't have fun in morning, you can take that time for study also, right?

  15. ceedy,

    You need to know the schedules, you need to decide what's important in your life.. then the schedule comes automatically.
    If you don't know the way to a place and have to go there, what would you do. You formulate a plan and work it out. that's it. You won't try out different plans to reach that place.. right?

  18. Yep, u can take tht time to study but u r not gonna be studying 24/7...are you. lol. life should be balanced!! But ofcourse there are priorities btw things ...when it comes to exams or outing, exams are the choice indeed. but as u allocate time to sleep and eat, you should do so for watching tv, or visitng families. or whatever. But i think, it is possible to and important to lead a balanced life! Working is not life. U should be able to make use of whatever you are getting out of working hard. lol.

  22. saranya,

    That's what I said... the balancing proportion.
    There are people who study 24X7.
    'N there are people who just think about their work all day.

    ***U should be able to make use of whatever you are getting out of working hard.

    perfect :)
