One day you are an infant who can barely crawl and next day you are a school kid commuting on your own.
A few days ago, you could not imagine life without your parents, but today you feel that the weekly phone calls that your parents make are intrusion.
If on one free you sit back ponder, you would realize that events that happened years ago feels like just yesterday. However, at that point I asked myself this question:
“What did I do in the last 1-2 years?”
“Is waking up, checking emails, commuting to office, commuting back, watching some TV, attend some late night conference calls and an occasional drink all what I achieved?”
Time flies, and it flies faster than you can imagine… but the question is who is incharge? Am I living life or just passively passing my time?
I feel, one of the best martix to answer this question is:
“What new did I learn/experience this week?”
You can add something as big as “I learned how to drive today” to something as small as “I learned that red wine strains do not go off as easily… esp when u spill it on the wall”
I have been creating this weekly list for quite some time now and I average to about 15-20 new things each week… What about you, how big is your list?
Here is a nice short italian movie to lighten the mood.
