A famous quote by Socrates, “Beware the barrenness of a busy life” threw me into a trance today.
We are all running after success, just like a search for an oasis in a god forsaken desert. The more we move towards it, the farther it seems. Just when we feel that it is at an arm’s length, it decides to run away. We keep following it without a care in the world and in this attempt drain our existing energy. In our everyday life, the oasis is success and the energy we are draining is our relationships.
In the never ending search for success, we have made our lives so busy that we have little time for the people we love. This is the barrenness that Socrates warned us about, I have learnt my lesson, what about you?
