We are the wisest of all the species. Still we fall prey to people, circumstances in different phases of life. Just because our heart dominates our brain. And it is good to be foolish too. You are pulled back to remain grounded, restart and re accelerate. Do not shy away from your foolishness. Everyone has been foolish at some part of time in life. Wisdom is still considered rising above and setting right a foolish decision. We cant keep our mind pondering over everything in deliberation for right words, right decisions, right actions 24/7/365 days of the year all our lives.
Do not expect people to treat you the way they want to be treated. Do not expect people to understand you. Do not expect people to not be hypocrites. Do not expect people to not eye on your money. Do not expect people to look into mirrors before pointing out at others. Do not expect people not to pass the buck. Do not expect people to not envy you. Do not expect people to stand up and own their responsibility. Do not expect people to not give advises without following it themselves. Do not expect people to take your advises rightly. Do not expect people to be ethical.
The reasons are either people are ignorant or they want to be ignorant or they are reluctant to accept and change. Thus we better stop expecting and zero expectation doesn’t hurt. People modify or behave to their convenience. And in few of the cases, ego also causes disruptive behaviours.
All you got to do is either, • Ignore few of these traits if they are only on their thoughts or, • Follow up to the core and get things done case by case wherever your deliverables are with them or, • Take precaution for the damage these approaches can cause or, • If its causing major loss, exit them from your lives. You cant change people. Change your approach. Carry less concerns on your mind. Free the bandwidth of your brain and heart occupied by worrying about non- changeable people.
We have outsourced all our memory and thinking process to our mobiles and laptops/computers.
Reminders for – Birth – dates, Anniversary – dates important passwords, phone numbers, our work content, relative’s photos, our celebrations everything is stored on facebook, mobile calendars and laptops.
Earlier days Mapping and further Simulation was possible due to all the content on our brain which used to be our hard disk. We could think, relate, map and simulate due to the data on the brain. Huge machines were built with all the formulas, drawings and calculations happening on thousands of paper sheets. And everything could be rewritten or created because the brain could hold so much of information.
The optimum usage of brain sharpened it time and again. Actually studies say that our brain can hold one terabyte of data which is almost the entire internet. What an enormous waste and under-utilization of capacity.
With technology we are failing our capacities to think even on basic or constructive things. Only the people involved in niche technical jobs or most sensible are able to give some work to their brains. That is the reason why we try engaging ourselves in so much unwanted thoughts.
We have time to think unwanted, irrelevant things everyday and waste our time and energy. We are keen on making a Mountain out of a Molehill.
