Ratan Tata's speech on Life and Work

One of the speeches by Ratan Tata at Symbiosis,Pune

Don't just have career or academic goals . Set goals to give you a balanced successful life. Balanced means ensuring your health , relationships , mental peace are all in good order . There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your breakup. There is no fun in driving car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions. Don't take life seriously . Life is not meant to be taken seriously , as we are really temporary here. We are like a prepaid card with limited validity . If we are lucky , we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up ? Its OK.. Bunk few classes , score low in couple of papers , take leave from work , fall in love, fight a little with your spouse .. Its OK. We are people , not programmed devices ...! 

Don't be too serious , Enjoy Life as it comes.
