I came across the below quote today. It resonated with an event that dates back to December 2007 when I made a cool-fool of myself!
In December 2007, I was driving from Rajkot to Ahmedabad via my classic Honda City Car. While driving, the objects from the glass looked fuzzy.
I thought maybe the glass is unclean so I cleaned the glass, still it looked fuzzy.
Then I thought the front-glass might have become old so I must change it.
I came back to Rajkot and I got the glass changed for ₹ 7500/-
The other day, I had to drive to Ahmedabad again. Even on that day, the objects looked fuzzy from the front-glass!
I was wondering what was wrong. Then I realized if I had got any eye-numbers.
I got my eyes examined the next day and I got -2.25 numbers!
I got my first numbered glasses and from then on, everything looked clear.
Note to self:
- When we face any adverse situation, we tend to believe that it is someone else’s fault, but most of the time, that’s not the case.
- When we are quick in execution, we may often pay the price for the lack of depth.
- It is better to question our own actions (and non-actions) first and then to anyone else.
