How much time do you have left? Blog marathon post 4.



I came across the above visual and thought it worth sharing. I haven't linked the site as it is already in the visual. It is the ad for a house-cleaning service. But what they had to share I found powerful.

Put in the above manner, it puts so much in perspective.

Time is indeed precious. And I think it is too precious to not spend it with the ones we love most.

Make good memories. Take lots of pictures. Read. Travel. Do something that makes you feel that you have really lived.

Now do that every day----and you have made yourself a life you love!

  2. I set a lot of goals. But, I didnt find any progress, i just made a plan for 24 hrs a day. Apart from sleeping,cooking, cleaning, kids running what is the time left for me? idle browsing and facebook takes much of my productive hours.Discipline is a must to stick on to certain self set rules like useful browsing, reading for yourself and for your kids,brushing the skills of quit career. it goes.. tracking the progress each day is a must....

    all set to go..

  11. Doing all the things shown in the poster above plus the things you mentioned together called life/living. I am surprised how anyone could imagine a life without those acts! Sleeping, eating, studying etc can never be waste of time.

  12. Now this is something serious. We guys always complain about not of having for this and that but have we ever thought what we really want to achieve in this short span of life.. I don't think money is the only thing that we want.

  13. That's one fabulous illustration made by whoever it is. And it tells you the truth of life light heartedly and yet inspires you to go ahead and pursue your goals instead of wasting time in life

A Hundred Little Flames. How I signed 3000 copies!

In the past, I have blogged about how I signed 3000 copies of my previous novels, The Secret Wishlist, The One You Cannot Haveand also It's All In the Planets.
(Click on each one to read about the signing of those books)

I have also written aboutwhy I sign my books 'With Love, Preeti Shenoy'. (Do read the post)

It is that time of the year again, when I sign my pre-orders. I have just got back from Manipal, utterly exhausted with knotted shoulder muscles, numb finger tips and a feeling of wanting to sleep for a hundred years. I am bone-dead tired.

I left for Manipal, on 25th which has one of India's finest and most advanced Printing press. To reach Manipal, you have to travel to Mangalore, and then go by road, a journey about an hour and a half. My flight was late, and by the time I reached Manipal it was about 7.30 pm. I checked into the hotel, and knew I had two long days ahead of me.

The next morning, we reached the press at 9.00 am.

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
