My mentor & partner-in-crime Shree Pragada, one of best human beings to talk to about existence of this world, metaphysical literature, and the God, often tells me, “this world doesn’t need our help. we are here to serve a purpose. We have got this one life to realize that one purpose and fulfill it. This world is perfect just the way it is.” It made me realize we are insignificant in this universe. We need to live and let other live. People are going to do what they are going to do, the only thing a man can do is control his own actions. We all are given with same 24 hours in a day, what we do with that is the value we bring to this world. As I found myself telling my manager once, “we don’t pay our employees for how many hours they work, we pay them for the value bring to the hours.”
