“The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.”

–Seneca

Are we overestimating the power of a decade?

Are we underestimating the power of today?

Are we dropping our whole life into a holy deal?

I have a secret I want to share. I am writing something on the first page of each new journal book.

The first line is, “Change the World from the top in 2025!

Don’t ask me what I will do to achieve that in 2025.

I have no clue. Is it at the beginning, the middle, or the end of 25?

When talking about the top, which flight level am I referring to?

I have no damn idea.

I have spent most of my time building a plan of what to achieve and when. I have always dreamed big. As far as I remember, the sky has always been my limit.

Looking back, I cannot pinpoint those pivotal moments when there was a significant change in my life.

Well, that is not entirely true. I moved to France in 2000. I started working in 2008. I got married in 2017. I have been a father twice: in 2019 and 2021.

Those moments are just that: a blink of an eye in the scale of the universe.

All the significant achievements in my life are not like that clean target that I hit with a sniper bullet. I might fantasize looking back, but they were not defined by a single moment before and after.

I have discussed with some friends and acquaintances who can pinpoint when their life changed.

“I was abroad doing my studies. I am from India. It was a split of seconds. That moment the gun was licking my front head was a defining moment.”

I am paraphrasing a story from a friend that I call Sash.

After that, he never saw life the same way.
