It’s good to have an aim, but don’t be driven by your aim.

It’s good to have aims, but it will gone bad if we have all our time in our particular aim. For example, a married lady aims for her best in her working industry as a lecturer. Everyday, before the sun rises, she woke up and get herself prepared and went to her working place in the early morning to skip the jam of the city. She spends all her morning reading the newspaper and preparing her lecture notes. It’s 9am, she went in her class as usual, and stop for a lunch at the noon. After her short lunch break, she continues her classes until late evening at 9.30pm.
It’s time to get home. When she got back home, her kids are going to bed. Just a little time spending with her kids and she went for her shower. After her shower, she may have a cup of tea or short dramas sometimes, and went to bed. And this routine is repeated everyday.
Let us not talk about financial wise; I think she has no need to work that hard albeit she really likes her job. If she is single, I won’t recommend her to work in this way too. Life can be more meaningful than we focus and have all our time in something we strive for.
What I would like to carry out is, we may love our job or strive for something in our lives. At times, It would be better if we step back and think about the importance on (((how meaningful our lives are than how successful))) we are. Time flies and will not restart nor reset. Treasure the time that you spend with you family, friends, your love ones, and a time for yourself. Make your time meaningful, and you will start treasure your life when you look back.
Now, have 10 seconds for yourself to weight your life on how meaningful you think your life is.
