A child never wants to go to school but it probably must. Investment into what's not so pleasing today is very important for a better tomorrow. There has to be a constant balance between what we do for our future and what we enjoy today. This is the theme I would like to point out to myself and youngsters.
There has been lifestyle and behavioral changes in the way people in 20s lead their lives today. Living life to the fullest and change have been the buzzwords when it comes to Indian youth today. Rightly so in some ways because the country hasn't seen so much liberation at such a young age. Youngsters now are independent, they might have fewer pressures of responsibilities than their last generations and information access has improved tremendously. But here's all of us must not forget when leading our lives and venturing out into newer things.
Distractions rarely help in the long term. If there is one common thing among all successful people its focus. But focus alone is not enough. It cannot be that simple. I would say couple it with a Chinese proverb which says "If we are facing the right direction, all we have to do is to keep walking". So focus and direction both are important. So now how do you decide that we are right or wrong in doing whatever we are doing. I would choose "Sustainability" and "Scalability". If things that you are doing today can be done many years from now in an easier fashion and with lot less effort with practice go for it, if you can multiply the returns from the activity with minimal inputs then its even better.
Nothing sustains itself forever especially when you are talking about individuals so focus on something which can be taken forward irrespective whether you are there or not. Probably that is why your work and creation would be more important than you.
