My World

Just a place for my thoughts and views…..

Live life fully!!!

with 3 comments

Never had the urge to earn more and more money as some of my colleagues in my college. Almost all appeared for CAT and other MBA exams…Why MBA??? Reason: Want to earn a lot of money for a very comfortable, secure life..Very few would be really wishing to do management because they want to do it. Was adviced by many around me to go for it because everyone else was doing and a BTech degree holder’s salary would not be sufficient to have a life full of comforts. But no money didn’t attract me much even after I come from not much financially well background. I have my own plans and priorities in my life(may be I will tell you about it next time).

The question is “Why people run after money and want to do what the crowd is doing? Why can’t they take a decision on the basis of their interests and capabilities?” If everyone tries to do what they really want to do and what they are good at, there will be more efficiency. We don’t spend much time on ourselves to know about our capabilities and our interests. It will be good if we think before planning our future and deciding our priorities in life.

Living life based on our personal priorities is needful because we will be doing more of what we want and need to do. Life is meant to be lived fully and we can achieve this only if we make conscious decisions about our future based on our priorities.

  1. totally agree with watever u r saying….but its utpoian in a way….survival comes first when opportunities r scarce ! and it need’nt be necessary tht the top priority in everyone’s list be that they should do what interests them…..say for a certain someone who doesnt have an ambition, if he’s told tht there’s tons of money in the offing if u do an MBA, thereby assuring financial security for u and ur fly, then why not opt for it ? no harm rite ?

  2. u r right that the top priority may not b what interests ppl…but what i have observed is that ppl don’t even think before going for anything..they just follow the crowd…There is no harm in assuring financial security but there may b alternate options where he/she is good at and can also earn money…this way the efficiency will b more and if think on a wider prospect , will b advantageous for the devolpment of a country…..

  3. Money after MBA does come for a cost… and that cost is your time…. That should be understood…

    If you will work 14 hrs a day… then u will sure earn a lot of money… MBA or no MBA…. but then where will be time to spend this money… or where will be time for urself….

    Therefore more than money making, it is question of how much do u want to spend on which things in ur life…
