Every effort counts!


The above poster is hung in my drawing room. I feel so proud every time I look at it. My heart sings loudly that “I passed on my legacy..”. It also reemphasizes my philosophy that “Every effort counts”.

A week back, I had enrolled my 5-year-old daughter in a summer reading program in the local library. The library is encouraging kids to read, by giving them gifts for every 4 books they read. I have been reading to my kid since she was 6 months old. I’m a bibliophile and obviously, my favorite activity with my daughter was to read colorful picture books to her. Surprisingly, my kid also loved books so much that she wanted me to read to her not only before going to bed but also, before taking a nap! Over the years, it became a habit and now, we both snuggle in the bed and read for hours together. This ‘Superstar’ poster from the library is an indication of our obsession with books.

This gift also reinforced my opinion that our effort will never get wasted. Whatever we do every minute, one day, will build up into something big. Reading for few minutes every day to my daughter now led her to win this prize. Today it may be a pastime, tomorrow it can be a passion, in future it may turn into a profession. I strongly believe that tomorrow is a reflection of how we invest time today.Therefore, it’s essential to spend our time and effort wisely. Every effort counts.

Here I am, spending my time in the one activity I love the most: writing. 🙂
