Well it has been long time and there were no frequent updates on my blog. This post is not about listing reasons why I couldnt able to do that. Hmm, I personally don’t like to give reasons, as they dont give results. Well, I was spending time to learn driving.
Yes finally, I got one of my own and I realized that I aint good at controling on my own. So last 2-3 months, getting up early in the morning (I was supposed to wake up at 6, but as usual I used to get up at 5:30), driving for almost an hour, finding out all those mistakes I make every day and trying to figure out how to correct them, listening to what my instructors says, sometimes even absorbing the wrath. Well it definitely took, hell lot of time & lot more patience to grasp things that some people could learn within span of few weeks.
But all that efforts had finally started showing, And now I am somewhat in control. Still there are lot of things to learn.
While I never thought, that learning to drive can teach me something apart from controling metal parts. The whole experience was not just about, riding on carbon and controling wheel but it was about maintaining yourself in control and having a 360 degree vision so that you won’t fail. This experience has taught me few things, which I feel will help me in everyday life. There is lot more that I can tell you about the experience that I had, but to summarize here are few.
– Calm Yourself
No matter what the situation is, no matter how much disturbing environment is, you always need to maintain your cool. Relax your mind and then start. Don’t let the environment control you.
If your head is filled with emotions, you will loose concerntration on the things ahead of you. So concerntrate harder, so you won’t make mistakes. Well you need to “Calm Yourself” first.
– Never back down (Don’t give up)
You failed first, you tried again and you failed again, so you got up again and what worse, you failed again. Well if you have habit of making mistakes and not giving up, then you should really not care about your failure. But that doesn’t mean you should be careless and act like fool, not even realizing what mistakes your are doing. Make mistakes, no harm with that and even if somebody laughs at you, just ignore them but don’t react with emotions.
Make mistakes, to learn the ways that caused the situation. Make mistakes to learn, don’t learn to make mistakes. Always be creative and find out ways to overcome.
– Know where you stand
You may be good at most of the stuffs, but don’t forget you are not perfect in everything. There is always someone out there, smarter that you, who can outrun you. So be prepared for every situation and analyze what’s your position is, Where you really stand and what it takes to reach to next level.
– Ready to learn
Some are not born genious, it is the hard work, desire to learn and strong will that will take you to the target. Always be ready to learn and observe the surroundings. The ordinary things around you, will teach you something which you have never experienced before.
– Don’t feel small
Sometimes you have to learn from those, you feel are not so important. There is nothing wrong, you can learn from anyone and that ain’t gonna make you look small. Don’t be conservative and hide yourself in shell.
Well that look like one big talk, but there is something more, which is hard to express in words. So all these past few weeks, taught me something and I hope everyone will find something unusual from their daily experience. So the time that I spent all these days in learning to drive, left me no space to contribute to the blog. There are lot of things happenning around me, will soon start blogging them. 🙂
