Dagny and I are big Harry Potter fans. I still read
the books while eating or going to bed. At night when Dagny is screaming at me
to turn off the lights and go to sleep, I have a sudden impulse to swish my
‘imaginary’ wand in air and yell ‘IMPEDIMENTA!’ Ah well, it is not advisable to
throw spells at your wife, especially the one who is equally good at them, if
you care about your marital bliss. So I resist the temptation. But the
stranglehold of imagination is not lost on me. And imagination and dream building
form a sizeable portion of our psyche if we are to get ahead in life. They also
fuel our desire to focus and work hard towards our goals. I still remember that
the only thing that propelled me hard towards cracking IIT JEE was that I
wanted to win the heart of a girl in my school. I would dream about million
fanciful situations in which she was looking at me wide-eyed with admiration
after JEE results were announced. Alas, the dream did push me to my coveted
institute but did not gave the courage to open my mouth in front of her. Even
during our CAT preparations, Dagny and I both shared the common dream- that of
staying together in IIM and traveling the world after passing out. Although I
cracked CAT- twice- we realized that our dream was impossible while serving
someone else. And then glory of an MBA fizzled out. We have let go of IIMs but
we still cling on hard to our dream. Wish we have Floo powder or a Portkey.
This is a month when you should be stoking your dreams, trying to imagine what kind of life you want to lead, which places you want to go to, where do you want to live, what kind of home do you want, which girl do you want to propose to, etc… Take good care of your dreams. They will give you your lust for life, your raison de etre, your enthusiasm for CAT, and your killer instinct. If you want to really go for it, start with finding your dreams. This
lesson goes to Ashwini, whose continuous entreaties ( You might also like: Permutation and Combination Maxima, Minima and Inequalities |
