By Mr. Ratan Tata
Don’t just have career or academic goals. Set goals to give you a balanced, successful life.
Balanced means ensuring your health, relationships, mental peace are all in good order.
There is no point in getting a promotion on the day of a breakup. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts.
Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions.
Don’t take life seriously. Life is not meant to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a prepaid card with limited validity.
If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years.
And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends.
Do we really need to get worked up ?
Bunk few classes, score low in a couple of papers, take leave from work, fall in love, fight a little with your spouse.
We are people, not devices.
Don’t be serious. Enjoy life as it comes.
