I read Rajesh Setty’s post on Quought for the Day and wanted to contribute to his series. In this post’s he asks, “what is the ONE important question a person should ask himself or herself in 2007?”
At the time of reading his post, I had many questions! It has taken me a couple of days to limit it ONE! And here it is. (Drum roll please!)
What things will you Ctrl-Alt-Del for the year 2007, in order to enhance your life?
“Mines of power lie unexplored within you. You use this power unconsciously in all things you do, and you achieve certain results; But if you learn to consciously control and use the power within you, you can accomplish much more.” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
There are lots of things we have to do and there are loads of things we want to do, however we are limited to 24 hour days. (which includes eating and sleeping as well!) I have often felt that with each passing year the “pace of life” too, increases proportionately. Do you feel the same? If so, what are the things/areas you can control, in order to enhance your life?
“Know how to choose. Most things in life depend on it. You need good taste and an upright judgment; intelligence and application are not enough. There is no perfection without discernment and selection. Two talents are involved: choosing and choosing the best. There are many people with a fertile, subtle intelligence, rigorous judgment, both diligent and well informed, who are lost when they have to choose. They always choose the worst, as though they wanted to show their skill at doing so. Knowing how to choose is one of heaven’s greatest gifts.” - Baltasar Gracian, The Art of Worldly Wisdom
If I were to ask you, “When was the last time, you did something for the first time?” I wonder how many of you would actually have an answer. Yes, we have choices. Are you aware of all your choices? Are you happy where you are? Are you willing to make your life, less monotonous?
So what are the things/areas you can alternate, in order to enhance your life?
Often in life, we put up with a lot of things, we really don’t have to. If there is something/someone in your life you do not want, it is about time to find the cause and remove it.
Or, it may be as simple ( and complicated!) as forgiving yourself.
Anger, hate, Nail biting, smoking, alcohol etc. What’s your delete list?
So, I ask once again, “What things will you Ctrl-Alt-Del for the year 2007, in order to enhance your life?” Your comments are welcome.
