WITnessed : Petrol Panic...

Pratik : I wonder why there's a crazy mile long queue at the petrol pump! There must be a petrol price hike tomorrow!
Vikas: Why do they bother? Hike in petrol prices makes no difference to me - I fill exactly 100 bucks ka fuel everyday!

As it turned out, people were frantically filling petrol because there was a "bandh" the next day.
I drove on, took a turn off the main road and passed another petrol pump. It was just 1 minute away from the above mentioned petrol pump, but there was no rush at all!

Self Discipline and Sacrifice

"Self discipline does not mean suppressing or sacrificing your desires.
Self discipline means always choosing your deepest desires, over your many superficial desires."

When you sleep early tonight to get up early tomorrow, you are not sacrificing your late night movie.
You are simply choosing a good nights sleep and a fresh start to an engaging and productive day tomorrow instead.

When you avoid overeating, you are not suppressing your desire for another slice of that delicious pizza.
You are simply choosing to feel light and healthy rather than stuffed and heavy.

When you get your butt to the gym, you are not sacrificing your time and suffering an hour of physical exertion.
You are simply choosing to be healthy and energetic, instead of spending another hour blogging/surfing aimlessly.

(Reminder to self)
