Two times, I have been in a full-time job, and each of these times, I left without a second job in hand. And I have never regretted these decisions even though at times, things didn’t look as bright. Given my experience, I agree with all the ten points mentioned in this article.

At times, the advice for playing safe boils down to substituting present misery for the future one. You want to avoid being miserable in the future, so you make choices that make you miserable in the present. You give up joy for safety. I read somewhere that these choices are making the world a safer place, not a joyous one.

At times, the choices that make the heart blossom require us to be vulnerable to future pain. In such times, I’ve noticed that thinking “Ro lenge rone ka time aayega to” (If it comes to crying, I’ll cry. So what?!) helps a lot in making those decisions that bring joy in the present but make the future uncertain. A path of safety and the path of joy may not always overlap. In such moments of decision, which one will you choose?

Interesting question!

If you choose one goal and thereafter take every decision after asking yourself a question “Which choice will take me closer to my goal?”, taking only those choices that take you closer to your goal, I can’t think of any reason why you wouldn’t reach your goal. Nothing is probably out of reach. It’s just that many of your decisions are not aligned with the goal.

Q: Can you explain the “OK Plateau?”

Joshua Foer (Author of Moonwalking with Einstein): The OK Plateau is that place we all get to where we just stop getting better at something. Take typing, for example. You might type and type and type all day long, but once you reach a certain level, you just never get appreciably faster at it. That’s because it’s become automatic. You’ve moved it to the back of your mind’s filing cabinet. If you want to become a faster typer, it’s possible, of course. But you’ve got to bring the task back under your conscious control. You’ve got to push yourself past where you’re comfortable. You have to watch yourself fail and learn from your mistakes. That’s the way to get better at anything. And it’s how I improved my memory.

“The best way to ensure success is to deserve it.”

One of the best quotes I’ve read lately. I think it’s applicable not only to careers and test preparation but also to other domains of life including relationships. Build yourself so that you deserve what you seek.
