Curse of the Outliers

Short passage by me, inspired after reading "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell.

Curse of the Outliers

What we are good at, is also our curse.

Because we are destined to defend our knowledge of the subject matter and not deny any chance to flaunt it.

Though we dread the drudgery associated with the routine, our pride and ego does not deny any glory and gladly soak ourselves in bath of compliments and praises.

The time we spend, trying to be better at what we do, is acknowledged and through the hours committed, we are qualified by our peers.

What we are good at, which defines us, must motivate us to overcome routine drudgery.

Lighting candles in the dark, 
One flame at a time. 
Looking forward,
It will always look bleak.
Look back once in a while,
And it will motivate you to keep moving forward.

Today is Friday 5th August 2016.
