When I was young, My grandma was teaching me one lesson through our daily playing activities.
She divided four groups. Each group has 5 members. We were cousins. So, she just gives some notes and she explains how we have to play. It’s a group activity, but most of them are individually play.
When our team fails, we will get extra challenges need to finish. So, every team gets only 1 hour play. So, we have to finish everything within one hour. Who are finish faster than other teams? They are the winners.
So, it’s quiet challenging and excited. Because every team looking forward to win the game.
But, at last she announced the winners of the team.
When the time has come, we all eagerly waiting for our score card.
My uncles and aunts, everyone gives individual points. The total score will be show us the winners.
One day, we play everything faster than all teams. But the score card shows, we were moving to the second place. Why? Every one of my team disappointed. Because, we did everything in the best way and faster than the other team.
My grandma announced the winner, we were shocked. Because, they finished their game slower than other teams. How it’s happening.
We all get upset. Suddenly my grandma said, every other team did well and faster. But this team was perfectly done everything within one hour. They give every second, entertaining and extra works and also they consider their time. But you all looking forward the time, but forget about the input and involvement of your work. That’s why you all others failed.
Then we realized, she was right.
We are only looking for success. We forget about our happiness.Gathsamana
