A great advice is the one which lifts you up and helps you unlock levels of your heart and your mind you never knew were there. It helps you show up more fully for yourself and others. It helps you claim your life as your own. But the best advice goes further. It is essential. It is universal. It is truth wrapped in carefully-chosen words.
Some time ago I was regretting for wasting my time and doing nothing the whole day. I used to make plans and end up being on the phone for the whole day scrolling through Instagram reels and watching YouTube. We all want our day to be productive but we all come across this expectations vs reality. I was discussing about this with my friend. She who is a great fan of reading books and is a bookaholic told me about this great line from the book "ATOMIC HABITS", " Getting 1% better everyday counts for a lot in the better run". It basically means that you get one percent better everyday and then finally you keep growing and becoming better at all aspects of life. This advice still echoes in my ear. All of us want to grow but it's not possible to grow at once but a change of 1 percent daily actually contributes a lot. Whenever I felt like I wasted my time and didn't do anything productive, I just try to remember the meaningful time I have spent to make my life 1 percent better compared to yesterday. It's very important to remember that growth is a slow and a steady process because of which it's important to remain patient , calm and enjoy the process.
Hence, during these challenging and uncertain times, essential wisdom and excellent advice help us find perspective, shift focus and stay grounded. They show us what really matters.
