My 60+ year old Prime Minister is putting in 18 hours/day and here I am, half his age; writing this blog post after totally wasting entire Saturday in the name of ‘keeping it off for myself’. What makes me sad is that Mr. Modi has been working tirelessly without taking even a SINGLE holiday over a decade (that breaks my record of going to office, without a leave, for ~14 months). We both absolutely love our work; but he’s beating me to pulp when it comes to time management and making use of the time. I hate it!
I want to eat simple food, do exercise and Yoga in the morning and work like I’m on a mission. I don’t want vacations. I want to go to sleep tired and fulfilled. Sleep for a few hours and then get back on my feet to beat the time. I guess that’d be awesome and totally *COOL*.
But here I am, lazying around after having stuffed myself with an unhealthy burger. I know it’s wrong.
And I hate it when I’m told : ‘relax’, ‘chill’, ‘kaam to hota hi rahega’, ‘enjoy life’.
It’s time I stick to my own definition of all of the above. Just like I did a few years ago. It was cool.
I’m Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .
