In this episode of the Dr. Subhash Chandra Show, Dr. Subhash Chandra opens discussion on a very important subject of how time is precious and why one must not let it slip out of your hand.
Subhashji begins the discussion with an apt Hindi saying, “उठ जाग मुसाफिर भोर भई, अब रैन कहाँ जो सोवत है, जो सोवत है सो खोवत है, जो जागत है सो पावत है।” He also asks the audience to narrate incidents where even one second had mattered in their lives. Subhashji also shared his experience about the same. “I used to also waste a lot of time before. I would often oblige to other people’s time and schedule. But I started treating time with respect and things changed then. You should treat each day as your last day.” On asking the students about the same one student says, “I would spend my last 24 hours listening to the Bhavad Gita.”
Explaining the importance of prioritising tasks to manage time well, Subhashji invites Professor Dheeraj Sharma, Director, Indian Institute of Management-Rohtak. Explaining views on time management he elaborates on what poly-chronic and mono-chronic orientations of time. Dheerajji also talks about work-life balance, “I believe in work-life integration. If work is enjoyable then it is no longer drudgery.” He advises people that one should focus on the quality of work and not the quantity of time spent on it. He also urges the audience to prioritise time in which ever way, but definitely learn to prioritise. “What we do has to come from what we mean, and what we mean comes from what we believe in. So let us start believing in certain things and then meaning them. As a nation if we want to progress we must bring in clarity on what time means to us.”
The second guest, Shri Joginder Singh Saluja is someone who inspires thousands with his life story. Despite being affected by polio at a very young age of just 9 months, he did not compromise with time or opportunity and won Mr. Delhi title. Today he runs a differently-abled friendly gym in Delhi. “When I was 14 years old people made fun of me for joining gym. I took their demotivating words and converted it into motivation.” Today he is helping many others like him by giving them special training.
