This is my life motto and so I will reiterate it as many times as it will require - Our work defines us!
So why not do something that is really worthy of defining us?
Now the question arises, "what kind of work can be worthy of someone"? A part of life defining the whole life?
Remember the three young men standing in the Indian parliament after throwing a grenade shouting "Down with imperialism, Inquilaab zindaabad", remember them?
Yes, I'm talking about Bhagat Singh and his compatriots.
Remember how they lived their whole "small but superb" life dedicated to one goal?
Their zeal, their passion made them a symbol of revolution, their deeds, though not many but were worthy of defining their lives. Living their lives for their love and dying for it, that's what made it worthwhile.
"Power only respects power", "We must be powerful enough to earn that respect", remember these words? The former president of India better known as the missile man of India, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, these were his words and though he is not around, don't we know who he was, don't we have the same level of love and respect for him that we had when he was alive, wasn't that a worthy life? Weren't his deeds impressive, isn't he immortal even after his death?
Now, don't you think I'm asking you to throw a grenade in the parliament or start building missiles, you don't have to do that, all you have to do is to be the finest in whatever that you do. An accountant? That's okay, be the best! An architect? That's okay, be the best! An engineer? That's okay, be the best! An XYZ, ABC, whatever..... JUST BE THE BEST! That's what will make your life worthwhile, take up a target and remember the words of another immortal soul "Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached", I don't have to name him, you all know his name, do you know why? Because his life was worthy and so should be yours. Don't fall for the easy targets and small accomplishments, live a worthy life and your work will define you. You are giving it your life.... Make sure your work is worthy of that, Make sure your work is worthy of you!
