A New Era has Begun

I am not big on the number of days I spend on this planet nor superstitious about the numbers in the age column. But, I feel it today, having completed three decades makes me feel older than I am. It feels like I wasn’t ready yet to turn uncle.

Yes, I turned thirty today and definitely not the proudest day of my life. I was born in the afternoon at 1622 hours, and I am glad the doc waited two minutes more than she should have.

Reflecting on my twenties, I know it from the bottom of my chest that I have failed more than I could succeed. I wish I could have been at a better place. I want to change things around now, can I? As Hiro Nakamura says, I don’t want to mess with what was destined to happen, and I am speaking as though the capability has always been around.

The last ten years have been significant greatly, and is perhaps the most important decade of my life. I realized it after I moved into the next one, sadly. I graduated, started my career, and I am well on my way to achieving my professional goals. Yet, I am unhappy, why? I am selfish and probably am affected with dissatisfaction syndrome.

Looking back at the past does not do much good, I have a whole new decade staring at me. I should probably make plans, and continue the action plan I made last year successfully. I don’t want to start reflecting on my thirties when I reach forty with a sorry face. I want to achieve, I want to reach my goals, however difficult they may be.

One major goal that I have been aspiring for the past year and a half is to finish writing a book. I have two that have started and are far away as possible from completion. The first is a fictional novel that is in the conceptual stages. I have fondly named it Million Dreams, and it is perhaps a reflection of my life, the past twenty years at least. The second one is closer to my heart. I have been studying success since 2006, and I don’t find a single book covering all, and many ideas are obtuse, and perhaps unrealistic. Many of the stuff I read, I follow, but as my own version, and it’s working fine. The target is to write a book that encompasses all angles of success and the book is named – Success Mantras. I have officially started on it, and I hope to have it written by the year end.

I hope to share more on professional practices and everything I deem important on this blog. Thanks for following me and appreciate the messages you leave me from time to time.

Thirty is a major landmark. I have been there, and it’s been twenty two years since. Love your blog, keep it coming.

What’s in an age? 30 or 20, it should not matter. Feel young, and do more.
