You may take decisions in life and a lot many of them. Decisions taken very fast, on the blink of an eye
It is very easy to take decisions, what is difficult is to stick by them and fulfill the rational behind taking those decisions.
If you do not fulfill the rational, does that mean that you were wrong in taking it. NO, but yes you were incompetent to take those decisions at that time, but not totally wrong
Making those decisions worthy of themselves is probably difficult. Most of us do not make the decisions worthy of the time and reason they were taken.
A lot many more times, the decisions are taken in awe of something bigger than yourself and which defines your next future overall strategy about life
A lot many many more times decisions are taken on half or less than half knowledge.Knowledge hampers the quick decision making process and creates chaos
Hidden most of the time from ourselves
We in fact never ever can know what our own character is. In fact, the least we ever think about ourselves in our entire lives are is our character.
The easiest thing is to pass quick judgement about other person’s character
Building a character does not take a lifetime, its built by few early life events and incidents, one’s level of exposure and one’s countering decisions
A characterless person still has a character but he/she realizes that it cannot be changed
Most truthful fact in the world is that one cannot change one’s own character ever in a lifetime. Its a hardcoded sequence in one’s brain
The truthfulness of a person is partially dependent on his knowledge but more so on how much he spreads and shares it
What we know is seldom used as a means to decide what we should know.
This anomaly or a contradiction is what fuels capitalism and the abuse of being wealthy or becoming wealthy
I would like to quote from Nassim Nicolas Taleb’s "The Bed of Procrustes" : Wealthy is meaningless and has no robust absolute measure, use instead the subtractive measure "unwealth", that is, the difference at any point in time, between what you have and what you would like to have
Sums up greatly what a lot of people think that being wealthy is all that makes you big in life.
Also, apparent presence of knowledge is not necessary the qualities of a wise person. He may be stinking of a half baked vision of growth.
