Sub: What to Wish You in 2012?
In the last few days of 2011 and now in the beginning of
2012, I have been wondering what was the best wish that I
could wish my friends.
Should I wish my friends prosperity? I was not sure. At a
recent annual day of the Alumni of my college, NITK
Surathal, one of the speakers, an alumnus of NITK and then
later an alumnus of IIM Bangalore, and also an author,
shared that although today he was in a position to come up
with a business model that would generate a lot of money, he
decided he would NOT do it because he did NOT want it. So
what did he really want if it was not money? He wanted more
to do what he loved, something worthwhile, something that he
always wanted to do that would make him happy but didn't do
because of the fear of the unknown and financial
So financial prosperity alone may not be what I wanted to
wish my friends. I am not saying that money is not
important, but financial prosperity alone does not seem to
be the answer.
Should I instead wish my friends success? And I realized
'success' means different things to different people, and
'success' is such an overused word, that often it does not
really mean much.
So what was I to wish my friends?
Over the years, as I have been meeting different people,
and working with various clients, I realized that most
people deep inside are looking for more than money, they are
looking for satisfaction - something that gives them
'fulfillment'. And money ALONE, often did not provide that
satisfaction or fulfillment.
We are all given 3 things by our creator ¡V the 3 T's
(TTT), i.e., time, talents (skills, education,
capabilities, ...) and treasure (money, resources, ...). I
believe that fulfillment is achieved by INVESTING our time,
talents and treasure (TTT) in the best possible way every
day. That's what makes us feel good! That's what gives us
To know whether I am investing my TTT in the best
possible way, I need to check whether I used my TTT in the
best way to get financial results, to develop close
relationships, to develop myself, to do things that matter
beyond my life time (leaving a legacy), to relate with my
creator, and to check that I did not waste my TTT on things
that I know that I should NOT be doing. I can check these as
regularly as I like - I can check them daily, weekly,
But I DO need to be checking regularly.
To check these however, I need to have some goals to check
them against. So then, do I have goals in the areas of
financial results, relationships, self development, leaving
a legacy, relating with my creator, and also goals of things
I should not be doing?
So then, what do I wish for you in 2012?
I wish for you in 2012, that you will set simple goals
(usually simple goals end up being very powerful). Goals in
these important areas - I am going to repeat the areas at
the risk of sounding repetitive - in the areas of financial
results, relationships, self development (health relaxation
and fun for me and my loved ones, knowledge/skills
development, ...) , leaving a legacy, relating with the
creator, and also listing the things we should not be
spending our TTT on.
I wish also, that in 2012, you will check how you are
doing in these areas, as regularly as you like, daily,
weekly, monthly, yearly. But for sure, regularly. As they
say, what gets measured, often gets done :)
In short, I wish for you in 2012, that you have great
