Where do I-where do I go....from here

Saw “Crimson Tide” & A few good men” back 2 back...This was what I was supposed to do in life…This was what I was trained in the academies for….All the rules and protocols which you have to necessarily follow- right or wrong…chain of command…code of conduct.…medals hanging on your chest…salutes& respect….d life in Army was the love of my life and now I’m sitting in IIM Ahmedabad mugging Economics, Accounting and HR.
Fate !!
Wonky Fate !!
I’m in the wrong place I know that, but now that the first option is impossible maybe the second best option is the only choice…I analyzed the situation using criteria learnt here…
-Problem statement: Develop interest in civil sector as a whole
-Options: Don’t have any other
-Criteria for evaluation: Effect on Immediate future
-Decision: Go ahead dude, Ain’t got no choice !!
Get back to mugging up…..
Ciao ppl….

Assumption and interpretation:

Over time, I’ve observed and now learnt in black n white at IIM A- How much assumptions and interpretations can change the total case scenario. It is a natural human tendency – “Given a situation- what might have happened, You assume what you want to assume”. Taking my own example I didn’t have factual knowledge of what actually happened when the break-up n the unfortunate events thereafter happened.

As people were giving opinions, I was drawing a picture of what must have happened. Assuming Ms. D to be totally at fault, the picture was quite bad…I assumed it to be bad because she had acted that way.

After a month or so, I started rationalizing…had forgotten the incident…busy with studies….assumed that there must be some logical reason behind her action of betrayal…when she called up after 4 months to tell the truth….assumed her to be speaking the truth because that’s what I wanted to assume… Agreed to b a good friend to her…It turned out, the “Lady” had lied again….Anywayz….

My point is, given an incident esp. in which we judge a person, we mustn’t jump to conclusions immediately….Itz imp 2 undrstnd that our interpretation of the incident might be based on what we want to believe at that very moment….a matter of perception….varies !!

The mind is a wonky person…It/he chooses that route for interpretation that is most favourable to it…If you have feelings for someone and he/she says...."Lets go for a long ride....."

People W A T C H O U T !! It may/may not mean....

Plz remember- We assume what we wanna assume !!

Game theory in our daily lives...

Going thru the upcoming topics in syllabus, I chanced upon the Game theory. Suddenly there was a connection between what was happening and my approach to it. It has wide implications,but what Game theory essentially states is-
"If you you know the strategy of your competitor, you work towards maximizing your profits...
If you don't know your opponent's strategy, than try to minimize your losses".

Lets take "Life" per se to be our competitor...(As I keep saying) Life is iffy (uncertain),You never know when Life is gonna pull your plug* (we don't know the competitor's moves), so try to enjoy each and every moment and live it to the fullest (By being sad, you incur losses on yourself, right?? Minimize it...)
Like the song goes...If tomorrow never comes....

Am sounding philosophical coz mid term exams got over today and this wonky mind felt like "thinking something"...Lolzzz n Lolzzz again

But thtz the way it is- Reminisce the past, plan for future, but you are alive, Live TODAY !!

ciao ppl
ciao Life
