Let’s go on a trip! A trip back in time..where you get a second chance to do everything all over again. Now, if you really did get a chance like this, would you change anything? I m guessing most of us wouldn’t coz we know that we are the way we are today only coz of everything that has happened in the past. But yes, there are a few things we wish we could alter. For me, I wouldn’t change what happened, but I guess I would change the way some of it happened.

Unfortunateley a time machine doesn’t exist.. if you know of any, let me know 😉

But today is yet to happen! So are you making this choice of living your today in a particular way, while you still have it? If not, then give it some thought. We all have the opportunity to create our lives, quite literally, the way we want to. We can write our days as we live them moment by moment, IF we don’t allow our emotions or other people to dictate us! But the key to being able to accomplish this seemingly simple yet difficult task is living in retrospect!

The best perspective to have, according to me, is the “retrospective” one! It could be a few months or a few years, but if you look at NOW from some point in your future, it helps you to understand what really matters, whether or not your decision will have the impact you imagine it to have, and how significant or insignificant this experience is going to be! Haven’t you felt this way about quite a few decisions you took years ago? I bet you have more clarity now than you did back then. Coz the truth is, time changes everything..feelings fade, situations ease up, people forget. What seems like a mountain today, might look like a mole hill 5 years from now. And if  you still have any regrets about your decisions in the past, remember that you made them coz you felt that was the best you could do at that point in time! But sadly, as we know, you can’t go back to that point in time.

So today, when you have to make a choice, use your retrospective time machine to travel into your future and look back at your present, as if it has become your past! This is one trip that will definitely change your life! 🙂

 


Sometimes I wish I could change everything around me, me included.. in a few seconds. Then at times I wish time would stand still so that nothing would ever change..of course neither is possible! So I often wonder..how much what I do on a daily basis matters to me…and where am I headed? There are so many questions we need to answer every single day…Can I do this? Can I afford this? Do I need this? Can I have this? Where should I go next? blah blah…But the question we ask most without realising how important it is, is this one…

“Is there enough time?”

We answer this question on a micro level every single day, to squeeze in the gazillion things we need to do before time runs out. But this question needs a larger perspective. It isn’t just about meeting deadlines at work. It’s about how much time we have until we meet our final deadline. Living in the here and now requires us to see the “bigger picture”. As Steve Jobs said, “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

So smile. Breathe. Pause. Think. Make time. Be. Say. Do. Call up the one you love and tell them that! Stretch your arms out and reach for your dreams. Make every moment count… make it worth a lifetime. Take charge of your life and become “Vector” 😉 …coz it’s not just the direction but also the magnitude of what we choose on a daily basis that we really need to think about. Start now… afterall, we ain’t got forever.
