I realised that every few days, I read or watch some inspirational stuff. My motivation is not long lasting and needs frequent replenishments. While they tell about what all one should do to become the greatest, they remind me of my inability to become great. So I have borrowed from practical life a list of 10 commandments. I am sharing these not to help the readers but their family members (God help my family members also)
# The way you spend your days is the way you will end up spending your life. If you want to improve it, improve the next few hours.
# Contemplate where life is going for 10 minutes every day. Use the time in loo.
# Listen to good music everyday: it is a food for the spirit.
# Don’t take yourself too seriously; no one else does!
# Waste some money every year – on your mother, wife and sisters.
# Make peace with your past.
# Give away extra/ old things in your home. Enjoy the joy of giving. (and then shop yourself afresh)
# Love your body and respect it. No matter how you feel, get up, get dressed well and wear nice looks.
# You made mistakes when you were a child, your parents will make when they are old. Your children make mistakes because they are young, you will make when you get old. So, be at peace!
# Call your family often. You probably won’t have any new news to tell because you are not a media reporter. Still do make the call.
