BNH Software: From time immemorial, time has been our greatest enemy. In a world where everyone is racing to be numero uno, time management is of the greatest essence. Time lost is go forever. Therefore, people try to fit in as many tasks as they can in the span of a day, so that not a moment is lost. At least, that is what most ambitious wannabes and gung-ho go-getters do. They are obsessed with time management to the point that they keep staring at their wristwatches or timepieces while they eat, wait in a queue, take a bath. However, if you are so fanatical about time and timekeeping, you might start suffering from hypertension, anxiety, ulcers, diabetes and cardiac problems. Being punctual and disciplined is one thing, but trying to be a human robot is another!
Time Never Stands Still…So Don’t Delay
It is true that time never stops or waits for anyone. It is the only dimension about our lives that goes relentlessly forward, without ever showing any signs of abating. Years fly by in the blink of an eye. Youth disappears and is replace by old age in no time. Life is shadowed either by bittersweet nostalgia or by a heavy burden of regrets. A self-introspection leaves no space for improvement, only squeezes the remaining life out. In fact, dwelling in the past makes you lose out on the present, on whatever time you still have left in your hands.
Wishing for a second life, a second chance and opportunity to correct your mistakes. A second chance to do things right, is common, even normal, but not at all practical or helpful. The second chance will never arise, the second opportunity will never surface, even if you manage to eke out a life on borrowed time. There is actually no Time Machine that can take you back in time, even though HG Wells desired one. Even if you are in your second childhood, you shall not feel the joys of childhood. You know that, as well as I do. You probably want to start life afresh. But I hope it is not too late.
No Time to Relax
The utopian thing would obviously not to do anything regrettable, not to miss out on opportunities, to do things right, the first time. But youth often has its failings, its temptations that are hard to resist until youth vanishes and until realization dawns. To do things right, right from the start, so that you can have the time of your life always, you have to mature, well organize, methodical, precise. You have to always on the lookout, always alert for the single lucky break that will change your life. After which you will not have to look back anymore. You have to be astute to distinguish the right opening from all the other openings that will lead you nowhere. Whatever your time of life, you cannot afford to sit back and relax and take your own sweet time.
