Introducing a plan not related to work or study

Everybody prepares their bucket list about things they wish to do. So today I’d take this opportunity to talk about one such plan of my life which is completely unrelated to work or study.

What it is about?

Well! It’s about visiting Kedarnath Temple. It is a famous Hindu temple located at Rudraprayag district in Uttarakhand.

Why you made this plan?

Actually when I was a small child, my parents took me there and for all these years I’ve been hearing stories about the place, its weather and the holy shrine. Therefore, I crafted this plan to visit the place and paint my imagination into reality. Moreover, my parents are willing to go to Kedarnath so I have also planned to take them alongside me.

What you need to do first?

Firstly, I need to check for train reservation whether it’s available or not. Holidays are coming up so it may be an uphill task. Secondly, the temple is located at high altitude and as such I need to buy some important things like essential medicines, clothing & snow shoes etc.

How you feel if it is successful?

If the plan gets successful then I feel I would be the luckiest person on earth to accompany my parents on this great holy journey. Moreover, the place has peace & tranquility to make me feel revitalised once again.

Concluding the cue card

In the end I’d just say that.., goals provide a concrete destination to our life journey. So we should not always plan our goals around the work or study; rather we should explore other dimensions of it.
