Which Way Ahead

There are times when speed really matters.

We want things fast, and the ends always justify the means.

Late-comers may lose their opportunities, while early birds may have a good deal.

We see people rush to line up and wait for their turn hours before the event begins.

We watch people push and jostle each other to get near to the prize.

It’s great to see their energy and commitment to get what they want.

Of course, awful things do happen when they step on one another, engage in ugly conversation, or when the management is prejudice.

The easiest, quickest and guaranteed way to success is what many of us want and desire.

Of course, there will be time when knowledge, experience, and skill really matter.

The fastest path may not be the best there is!

There are many options, factors, combinations and moves to consider.

There are always ways, means and methods available.

And our best sometimes may not be good enough.

We do, redo and undo many operations.

We become hesitant, uncomfortable, unsure, and worried.

The best reliable solution to the problem is what we are after. We want to get things right and make things right; hurried makeshift solutions are just not right.

Surprisingly as we learn to make amend and seek after better decisions, we commit more mistakes, getting less efficient, and becoming more frustrated.

We get confused as to which way is right: the easiest, quickest and guaranteed way, or the deliberate, careful and precise way?

Which way would we choose?

The easy way?

Or the difficult way?

Oh! This way is too far.......

The wide path is the most popular, but he who takes the rocky, winding road will reap the most fruitful rewards.
