Its no rocket science that if I keep doing the same things, the same way
then well, I am going to be in a place called “monotony”. When life gets
monotonous then probably there is no thrill, excitement or anything
It was a big realisation that I was just going through the grind but then was
expecting lots of excitement around me.
Now that I realised the issue, how do I change it?
Here is where a brilliant quote from a good friend Subramanyan
Kanakasabapathy (Subbu) helped me. Conversations with Subbu will always
be enlightening and in one such conversations he shared this quote “when
was the last time, you did something for the first time”. While I was blown
over this and realised its profoundness, I never had implemented this.
With my bucket showing that I mostly doing the same things the same way,
now having remembered this thoughtful statement, I started to plan ways to
implement and started working on two aspects:
Doing Same Things in Different Ways & Doing Different Things
The results were showing up and more importantly I could define what
exactly I mean when I use the terms “thrill; excitement & interesting”
