A few weeks ago, you asked me, " What is the most important matter in one life?" I was speechless, as I was clueless cause I have too many interpretation for the question you asked. The next day, my answer just suddenly pops up. That was what I always practice in my life. and couple of days ago, I received this forward mail in my inbox, pretty much explain my answer. It says~
Don't just have career or academic goals. Set goals to give you a BALANCED, successful life. I used the word BALANCED before successful. BALANCED means ensuring your Health, Relationships, mental Peace are all in good order. There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of you break up. (nodding)
There is no fun of driving a car if your back hurts. (totally understand). Shopping is not enjoyable if you mind is full of tension.
Life is one of those races in kindergarten where you have to run with a ping pong ball on a spoon kept in your mouth, if the ping pong ball falls, there is no point coming first. Same is with life where health, relationships are the ping pong ball. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive will start to die.
