Have you ever felt so lazy to do even some basic necessities, then you get reminded out of the blue about something and get the full energy to complete that something?
Have you ever realised how you get tired of doing some tasks, even if it is very important? But, how even the prospect of a particular work, (which might not even be called so) keeps you going forward and doing them feels as easy and effortless as an average person’s breathing..
Have you also recognised that a task which is so easy for you, is indeed a Herculean task for someone else?
So why is there so much difference in doing even the same task?
Because we all are unique and have varied capabilities. It depends on our age, experience, education, knowledge level, smartness, presence of mind and so many other factors.
All these differences eventually lead to expertise by few. And not everyone is cut out for every job.
Hence, the logical way to success is:
- Find out what you are good at,
- Develop that into your expertise,
- Take a job requiring that skill,
- Be on track without getting diverted
- Then the task is completed in the best way possible!
Summing it up in seven words in Tamil:
ஒல்வ தறிவ தறிந்ததன் கண்தங்கிச்
செல்வார்க்குச் செல்லாத தில்
olva tharivadhu arindhadhan kandhangich
chelvaarkkuch chellaadhadhu il
Anticipate outcomes, learn what needs to be learnt,
and stay focussed: nothing is impossible. [Couplet 472]
