I had been thinking how should phrase this article properly and decided to give a little short story.
Two competitors are placed in the jungle setting off at the exact time given, but they do not have a time limitation to get out of the place.
The fittest will survive.
The character of the two survivors is different.
One follows strict rules on how many hours he should be on foot, rest and sleep.
While another guy will try to move as fast as possible despite the lack of sleep. The reason why he is so confident is because of the hint – *just go straight, but do not get lost*
So who is the first to reach?
If you are thinking the second guy, then you are wrong. The answer should be survivor 1.
It is pure easy. Though the hint is given to him, how can anyone confirm it is true? Was he just a follower regardless of anything?
Even if it is true, are you sure you will not walk off the grid because you are extremely tired while trying to chase till the end without resting?
Survivor 1 took his time to plan and have ample rest to ensure that he is within the grid and also looking out for the river which may lead him out of the jungle. He also learns to look at the star to guide him out as well. There are many ways, just don’t follow one hint and you get yourself into trouble.
Do not be like a rabbit who is so arrogant that it will win over the tortoise.
Coming to reality.
How can you be confident or independent if someone was to keep on advising you? Will you be able to stand on your own by doing everything by yourself?
Every step requires proper plan. If there is none, plan according to your way. Having proper rest is a must because it will help to build up our strength and focus better in the long run.
By moving ahead without a plan is as good as losing your entire army to your enemy. A clean wipe out.
Whenever we are busy with work and had no idea which one to do first because all of them are equally important and having the same deadline, why not close your eyes and keep your mind empty for that 5min.
By having your mind go empty without any wild thoughts, it will tell you the answer the moment you open up your eyes. Do that project and you will slowly get hands on it.
All of us want to do best for our work and impress the superior. However, that does not mean you can forget about your family and health.
Take a step behind and plan well for your work and family.
No matter how busy a person is, always make time to rest. All of us have 24hrs a day equally, no one have more or less. It is how you plan it well so that you can get out of the jungle effortlessly.
