18/40/60 rule

Filed under: Attitude,Miscellaneous — ramsblog @ 4:39 am

Some of us might have come across this note before from books or emails. I just came across while reading one of the books and thought of sharing it across.  When you’re 18, you worry about what everybody is thinking of you. When you’re 40 you learn not to worry what others think. When you’re 60 you recognize that nobody’s been thinking about you at all. They’re worrying about themselves. ”

We often live for the society if not for self. And this is what I usually hear from the people at least. We think someone take us wrong or something or the other and we either don’t do the right things or have that kind of so-called “inferiority thought” within ourselves. I believe it is a good idea to at least be open and ask instead of making our own assumptions. At least I have realized about it and did certain things to exactly know if they were even thinking about me.

  1. Ask for an opinion of what I wanted to do – because almost every body has opinion but some stinks – hmm… I didn’t say that! – so it helps to filter out and pick the right feedback that helps.
  2. Tell them – this is what you are going to do – period. –> you take the ownership and responsibility for your task / investment / etc.

  1. Hmmm.. I agree with the fact that we do think abt what others do think abt us esp ones we care abt.
