Grit and Life Goals

It is impressive how time flies and now my journey in the UK almost meets its end in about less than 2 months. Recently I have time to contemplating life and work although as always hoping can do more time if time allows. But anyhow we just need to do it as much as we can and work as smart as we can. To make it balanced I always try to spend meaningful time with people I care and also make many memories that I can recall back later.

Nothing is forever. I guess life for today but still remembering your ultimate life goal is the best sentence. I just saw this TED Talks about Grit by Angela Lee Duckworth. It is an old talks but I feel it is perfect reminder when you are remembering your life goals in particular long term goals. As stated by Angela, grit is the machine that fuels up your passion and perseverance. I always believe when you do everything by passion and consistency you can achieve more than anyone does in spite of your limitation.

Photo is sculpture replicate of Le Penseur by Auguste Rodin (1904) at Grand Palais, Paris last July. There was an art exhibition to celebrate 100 years of Rodin’s death. I had a terrific Summer holiday in Paris in the same time with my best friends while channeling my great art interest. I even bought a small token from the museum, a replicate of Le Penseur, as a reminder to not taking life seriously and enjoy my time while I can. Because it is okay to be pensive but we also need to enjoy present moment.
