The neurones in your brain, busy and buzzing, keeping up with everything happening to you, by you; mapping it all in your head, joining the dots between experiences and emotions, struggles and joys to make you who you really are.
Every moment of your life, a moment you have never lived before. Some moments just passing, pointlessly, never affecting who you become; some defining ones, with impulsive decisions, life-altering news. Each moment, mapped in time, as dots, a speck in the timeline of your sole life.
Every person you meet, affecting you in someway or the other. Every person a unique entity, teaching you more about life, about living. Every attachment, every feeling of love, hatred, awe, disgust towards anyone being pinned as dots of relations and emotions.
Every new book you read, broadening your mind. Teaching you things conventional and otherwise, gripping you with plot twists, intriguing you with information, shocking you with revelations. All things you learn, interconnected, as dots intertwined by a string, letting you know and grasp more from life.
Our life is defined by various things we feel and experience. The experiences in our life would only be individual, independent, random series of events, would we not connect them somehow to give meaning to them.
As Steve Jobs said, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
All the moments we have lived would lead to who we become. We need to trust in the experiences and moments that have passed to make us who we aspire to be. We at TEDx BITS Hyderabad hope to connect just some of those dots that will help define who you will be. We hope to help you relate that passion you developed some day in your past and help you have an experience of meeting others with similar passions, relate the thoughts that run untamed with thought provoking speeches; so when you look back you realize that of all the times you formed dots, connecting them was the most important thing you did and we would love to provide the string.
