Explaining link between action and result, and related expectations!
Wrong interpretation of famous quote from Bhagavat Gita starting ‘Karmanyevadhikarasthe…’ has been convenient excuse for inaction (whatever we do, results are not in our hands) or half-hearted attempts (let us try our best but best never comes without zeal and zeal never comes without goal/ambition). But remember, Krishna was persuading Arjuna in battlefield to act, and act firmly and decisively
Only action founded on, and guided by, values and directed towards a goal (otherwise, what defines success/progress?) can ensure sustainable success and progress!
Actions helps you achieve; values help you do it right, winning the right way!
