Building a business : The Library On Cart case study : Chapter 14 Why I do what I do

I’m an average person. Neither very pretty nor very ugly. Neither very intelligent nor very dumb. I’m just a 54% holder. Anubhav are you higher or lower than me πŸ™‚ Rest all are higher πŸ™ Hope you are lower πŸ˜‰

Neither very hard-working nor very lazy. Just an average person.
Like an average Indian family I’ve 2 kids. 2 daughters.
The more I live the more I realize that there are no limits to a human body or mind.
Before I got married. I could not cook. I worked as a school teacher I used to come back from work and be so tired of that 7-2 job that I would not do anything else. You see I had already done my job. 7-2. The running of the house was my mother’s job. I helped. It was not my job. If an x thing wasn’t done it wasn’t done. It was my mother’s responsibility.

If I’ve to read a book i have time
If I’ve to clean my room I’m short of time. I don’t get enough time to sleep:/

Then I got married. After 2 months of marriage I took up a job again. I saw no point in sitting at home doing dusting when it took only half an hour. Why waste life ? Why grow bored ? Limited TV hours. It wasn’t 24 by 7 types. No WhatsApp πŸ™‚ erratic electricity hours …. Normal life πŸ™‚

One day I’m getting Vasudha home in an auto. She wants to sit next to the entry side. She dozes off. I don’t doze off, I sleep !

Who knows what next ?
This is not bragging. These are facts. Everyone is doing this. Every mother, every father. The difference is they stop there. At mother/father stage. I’m moving forward. I wonder, If I can do so much how much more can I do?
Are there any limits? Or have we limited ourselves? Is time finite or infinite? What is my potential? I keep talking to my God/ inner conversation partner and keep debating. I’ve yet to find an answer. It’s become a game πŸ™‚ I see there’s no reality, it’s all a perception.
Employee who see me sitting in the chair holding business meetings today in AC room/restaurant think I do nothing. They do everything. I’m overpaid. They’re right. I only oversee the smooth running of the operation.
Employee who saw me build Wrapd think I am underpaid for my efforts. I deserve every bit. They’re right too. I conceptualized. I staked my all with no certainty of results.
What is the truth? None. It’s your perception. We see a part. We CAN see only a part. The present. Neither the past. Nor the future. We base our truth on what we see. Not what is the truth. And what is the truth? What you saw… A part. Not the whole. :0
I am beginning to think it’s all a Maya jaal πŸ™‚ I’ve become spiritual.
I am beginning to think there’s no end to a human mind’s capacity and capability to think, devise solutions, to be. We are what we imagine ourselves to be.
We all are what we are because we have chosen to be so. Not because we are so. We can be anything we want to be IF we want to be. Limits like fears are an illusion.
The caveat. You’ll not limit yourself by the conditioning of society and be willing to pay the price πŸ™‚ You’ll not limit yourself by statements like aise nahi hota hai (Vasudha are you listening:) or yeh aise he hota hai. Rather you’ll just ask aise kyu nahi ho sakta πŸ™‚ Is it possible? How can it be possible? How it can be made possible?

May we all discover what we are meant to be. Infinite.
