The value of time

One of the few things Im good at, is being punctual and being late for something just make me uneasy and its very unusual that I do that.

I fail to understand how one can abuse time so much, without it even being theirs! If its your time, do whatever you like, but if someone is dependent on you or its a relative time, dont abuse it so much that it completely disappoints! I have seen so many cases when people have taken time for granted and completely lost out.

As a generation (this maybe too strong to say) but we need to realise the importance of time. I understand that the quality of work should not be compromised, but there are somethings taht just need to be done.

Im maybe talking too much, but sometimes somethings just feel wrong and at this time, this totally does.

I remember when I joined my first job, I cheekily asked my boss if there was room for error. He very sweetly answered that ofcourse there was, but not always and all the time and that I took to my advantage. I made so many mistakes throughout my stint at the firm and not once did he scold me. He simply told me in the best manner that he could, that I should be more careful the next time.  I learnt so much through this one dialogue that he said.

Less than a year later, I have begun to realise the importance of what he was trying to tell me. He bore the brunt of all my mistakes but not once did he make it sound like that. Today,  when I made a very huge professional mistake in my academics and I cant help it but think about him. Its all about mistakes, realisations and learning from them.

I will never forget him and what he taught me. I also hope to be able to overcome these mistakes.
Thanks AJ. For everything.
