Time and tide waits for no man” is something we have all grown up listening to. But has it made any difference to the way we look at things? Can we live forever? The Mean statistical life span is approximately 68 years for Asians. Here’s a little example, consider ‘Ally’ 35-year-old male, 68- 35 = 33 years left on planet earth 33x365=12045 days left for Ally to accomplish all he wants. Shocking! isn’t it? This lecture had us shaken and instilled in us an urgency to accomplish things we set out to do. I would like to share some of my takeaways from this session to manage priorities. Let’s begin: Distinguish between goals (dreams) and tasks (action). Think about the 3 areas career, family and social. Geothe said, “The things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least”. Planning and Prioritizing - Making it happen 1)Timelines- Goals can be short term and long term. Take every opportunity to be proactive not reactive. 2) Realistic Timelines Contingency Planning - Murphy’s law- if something has to go wrong it will Motivation - Celebrate small successes. Reflection Time - Look back and create, review, modify. This lecture completely changed the way we looked at the clock. It can re- schedule yours as well.
