Though I have been quite regular in jotting down my thoughts in my blog, for the past few years I have been regularly irregular. Main reason being ‘busy with my businesses.’ The leadership Guru Stephen Covey in his book ‘First Things First’ tried to teach the world how to prioritise things in life. We are all pressed between two situations in life; ‘urgent’ and ‘important.’ Most of the time we go behind ‘urgent’ things jeopardizing the important things. In fact most of the important things in life are not urgent; hence this challenge. Maintaining good health is important but not urgent, Gaining knowledge is important but not urgent so on and so forth.
Urgent things are short term and the gain also is short lived. Most of the important things are proactive and hence long lived. All of us agree that success and failures are subsequent to decisions; good or bad; knowingly or unknowingly. In fact every moment we are taking decisions; knowingly or unknowingly; small or big. Can we try to ask these questions while we take decisions; Is it urgent? Is it important? Lets try to spend more time on Important & Urgent things and Important & Not Urgent things.
Guru Dakshinamurthy swamy told me once, ‘We all have go to do our Karma and Dharma. But we are focused more on Karma and forget about Dharma.’ This was a great enlightenment. He even told me that ‘transforming people through education’ is my dharma. But in the ‘busyness’ of Karma, my attention on Dharma got diluted. On this auspicious day, I am deciding to dedicate myself more for my dharma. I am sure all my ‘Gurus’ starting from Raghavan Asaan who taught me ‘Harisree..’ will shower more blessing on me in my dharmayoga.
