Time is the most valuable asset for us. We are dying every single moment. The more and more I see our neglected attitude towards I get hurt. People say we Indians do not value the importance of time. To me, it is not about being Indian or not Indian. It has more to do with us individuals.
I am in the sales business. I see how we are not spending our time to its potential, many calls that should not have happened, calls which could have been a simple email. I get hurt seeing how we are wasting it. Many hours go before or after any conversation in its preparation. On some occasions, I shared my feedback and displeasure as well after the call. Some took it graciously a few others did not.
Stoic Philosopher Seneca died teaching about how small our life is and how short time we are left.
“People are frugal in guarding their personal property; but as soon as it comes to squandering time they are most wasteful of the one thing in which it is right to be stingy.”Seneca: On shortness of life.
