In school and college, it was all about:
- winning alone
- defeating others
- getting the best job interviews, and
- bagging the highest paid offer
In the workplace, realisation dawns, that life is about:
- winning together
- working with others
- the ‘best’ job being but a mirage in the mind, and
- money being there, but yet never enough
We spend the first quarter of our lives learning how to earn a living. Then we spend next two quarters earning that living. And the last quarter, yearning for whatever was left out.
But we never really live, because we are always focused on the ‘me and the my’, instead of the ‘we and the why’.
‘We’ for inclusivity. And ‘why’ for clarity – why do we have so many things, yet feel empty?
In this age of excesses, less is more. And it comes from more austerity, more self-sacrifice and more charity.
