... In a larger scheme of life!

"Everyone tries to define this thing called Character. It's not hard. Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking."- J.C. Watts

We all, at one point or the other, believe that our actions do not matter in a larger scheme of life. We are nothing but just another living being among billions, right? Some people might use this excuse because they are lazy to move their asses while others might use it because they do not want to take responsibility for their actions. (Some people are just oblivious of their actions and hence the people I call - Stupid!) I believe that our each and every action (and even word) matters! However, consequently what happens to us (good or bad) probably doesn't hold any great meaning in larger scheme of life! 

If each one of our existence (and actions) didn't matter then no one would ever try to do their job. More importantly do their job correctly and efficiently! If everyone believed their action didn't matter then I think we would never get anything done. Besides literally 'doing our job' and being responsible for we 'do', I think there is also a deeper and moral meaning to it all. Everyone sets examples. Someone is always looking up to (or at) you. Your actions (behavior) are nothing but your thoughts in motion (wow! that sounds like personal-quotation-material). All the people who ever achieved anything started alone ... and then their tribe grew! Whether it was Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Steve Jobs, or even Mother Teresa. Each one of us can make a difference. The counting always begins with 1 ... 

That being said, the consequences of our actions should not be taken too seriously (if the intention was pure, in the first place). After all, consequences are not 'really' in our control. When I say that, what happens to us is not important, I only mean to emphasize on the dire fact we all come with an expiry date. We, live or die ... are happy or sad ... face achievement or disappointment ... world moves on regardless! What will matter is only 'how' we lived and 'what' we changed, absolutely nothing else! We (starting with myself) should stop taking ourselves too seriously but start taking our responsibilities a bit seriously, ... what do you think?
