You go to meet someone for the first time at a coffee shop. You order an ice-cream and they order a black coffee. The immediate impression you get is, the person with black coffee order is diet-conscious and the lady(me) just loves to eat, no matter what.
May be, the black coffee guy has diabetes.
May be, the black coffee guy has eaten enough sweets since morning,that he’s excusing himself from another dose of sugar.
May be, the black coffee guy gets migraine when he eats sugar(know real people who get it)
May be, the black coffee guy is really diet conscious.
For the lady –
May be, she doesn’t like the coffee prepared outside.
May be, she’s secretly celebrating her small victory in an untold way
May be, she likes to eat icecream after lunch and it’s the perfect time
May be, she just loves to eat no matter what.
When a simple situation like this can have so many permutations & combinations, your opinion is formed by the lens from which you look at. No situation is black and white, even in the eyes of performer. Who are we to take stands, opinions and conclusions?
Everyone’s biggest resolution for 2014 should be : Live and Let Live.
If you have a job, only then you are successful.
If you get married, only then you are sane.
If you are an entrepreneur, only then you are bold & creative.
If only, everyone around can stop wasting their precious brain cells forming opinions about others and let them LIVE!
The only way to measure progress is yesterday vs today, not them vs me.
Wishing all my readers a very happy & prosperous new year 2014!
