Entry #22 – An epiphany

On the 5th of April 2009 I had a ‘moment of clarity’ – no, I wasn’t recovering from a late-night alcohol binge. It just suddenly hit me – I want to achieve a couple of things by the time I’m 30. With each passing day I have this urge to determine how well I’ve utilized my time and how I can plan better for the next. Each day has become ‘compartmentilized’ such that every hour can be accounted for – including the no. of hours I sleep. It therefore seems like no coincidence when exactly a week later (12th of April) a friend of my aunt gave me an inspirational book comically titled, ‘How To Ruin Your Life by 40’ by Steve Farrah. What an eye-opener! I think everyone whose still in their twenties should must read this (or something like this) before you wake up one day and realize you haven’t achieved much with your life at all…scary thought isn’t it?

  1. So what are the things you want to achieve by 30 ? and when are you hitting the big 30 ?? I’ll hit that in 2012

    Will go and hunt down the book you’ve mentioned for a good read 🙂

I want to finish my Thriller which I’m writing (about a young man who bit off a bit more than he could chew and is unsure whether he is responsible for the murder of his girlfriend).
