I believe there are around 20,000 students appearing for the entrance test and out of 20,000, 10,000 do not have a clue why they are appearing for the entrance test. Out of the rest 10,000, 5,000 have not prepared; out of the balance 5,000, I know 2,000 participants and I can beat them. So my real competition is with 3,000 candidates. I was speechless when I heard the analysis of one bright aspirant for Law Entrance Test.
We all are blessed with a super powerful computer but 35% of us misuse it for thinking unconsciously and I call that DAY DREAMING whereas 60% of them use it on an AUTO PILOT mode that is being driven by the circumstances during our early years and driven by our employers when we take up the job. Only 5% use it to think proactively and build, create and live their Life. Right or wrong they take accountability for their decisions. And this 5% make the difference in their lives and the lives of others.
It’s a powerful observation “MAKING TIME TO THINK PROACTIVELY”. I wish our education system includes THINKING as one of the subject as part of the curriculum and we will see a PROFOUND PROGRESSIVE POSITIVE change in our younger generation.
On a lighter note; fortnight early I was flying to New Delhi and while landing I shot a short video from the plane. Watch it and enjoy. I believe it reflects our life; early on in life we have a HELICOPTER view “PLENTIFUL OPPORTUNITIES TO CHOOSE FROM” but if we don’t take time out to THINK and make DECISIONS; you get a BIG JOLT and see such opportunities pass by just the way reflected in the video while landing at New Delhi Airport.
My message to share is take out 30 minutes of your time every day to THINK and be your THINK TANK.
