Don't Sprint The Marathon
Obvious as that might appear, as proud and ambitious parents, we often
push our children to excel in ways that may help them achieve some early
successes- but may sap their stamina to endure the more difficult
challenges which life may throw at them. What is more, our obsessive
rush to get our children off to a good start overlooks at the fact that
in life, as in a marathon, an early lead hardly matters, but being too
intent on coming first may leave our children lacking in many of the
life skills that a normal childhood would teach them.
V. Raghunathan, best selling author of Games Indians Play, offers a alternative approach that can be even more rewarding: life he avers, is not a sprint and it does not in the long run matter very much if you missed out on the best school, college or job as starters. As long as as you give yourself the time to develop your personality and skills, you will still get where you want, at your own pace and perhaps far more happily. To illustrate, based on first-hand interactions, he gives numerous examples of many achievers, famous and not-so-famous, among them N.R. Narayana Murthy, Dr. Kallam Anji Reddy, Dr. P D K Rao, V. Mani, Ashwini Nachappa, G.M. Rao and Ila Bhat. For those helping their children along for success in life, or rethinking their own approach to it, Don’t Sprint the Marathon will prove an invaluable guide.
