Thoughts...

Many organizations have a bulletin board where they paste a 'thought for the day' and sometimes you find rare gems there...The other day I read "The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it"...and that set me thinking...Do we actually price ourselves properly? For example, when you take up a job, you often compare the salaries drawn by peers and then benchmark yourselves as a success/failure - at least in your professional front...Most of us hardly would go to a salary negotiation table by calculating the amount of life we have to exchange for the demands of the job...It is an entirely different matter of discussion whether the employer needs to know about this.
The statement changed my perspective on a lot of things...we all know at some sublime level that some day we will all be dead, and thus we strive to balance out our various conflicting dreams, ambitions and duties...but this statement gave a more quantitative approach to evaluate my choices…
