Work when it’s not easy..

The favourable ambiance marks the difference between “Just get it done” and “Get it done better”

It’s easy to go ahead when everything is favorable. And then things are just accomplished. No more thoughts, no more questions, no more answers, just done in the way it is expected.

Now what happens when it’s not easy, when the ambiance is not favorable , do things get done better? Then, Chances are high to feel your actual power, I suppose, as in Notion of the day.. what do you think?.. Will it aid you to step out of your comfort zone and make it better?

Not enough to have a passion, you have to have a work ethic too

Teacher : I saw some of your paintings.

Student  : I am really passionate on painting. How do you feel on them, Sir?

Teacher : Good..You paint well. But your passion alone won’t drive you.

Student  : I am in damn love with painting. But yes, sometimes I feel bored.

Teacher : It’s not just enough to have a passion and skill.

Student  : Sir..?

Teacher : It’s not just enough to wish for something or want something. You need to handle the boredom of repetition, the boredom of repeated process.

Student  : Sir, how can I escape from that boredom?

Teacher :  You cannot escape from that boredom. It is humane. You need to find your own way to work through boredom. There are no magic sticks to inspire you every time. You need to put in hours and time. You should not make yourself driven by priceless emotions when you have a great goal to achieve. You need to love that boredom of repetition and make yourself under continuous practice.

Student  : Yes Sir, I understand, ‘It’s not enough to have a passion, need to have a work ethic too’. Anyone can work better when inspired, but the real performer is the one who performs the best even when no one is there to motivate him.

Plans made for studying never work.. Isn’t it?

Few days back Mrudula asked me “Plans made for studying never work.. Isn’t it? “

What will you answer her?

Isn’t it a clock or a time table coming to our mind whenever we think about planning?

Is that enough for planning..? Are you focused on time planning ..? ( splitting the tasks on a timely mode)

Recently I read some interview of an IAS candidate. He was telling like never did he cut down his lessons as the planned time is over. He worked over night to meet the deadlines and completed his studies without compromising the quality of his studies.

He had a great point there.

Have your goals fixed in both time domain as well as in quality domain, have intermittent targets, work hard. That’s it.
