We Have Lost Touch With Humanity

I was reading Robin Sharma's - "Who Will Cry When You Die?". Love reading the book because I can start reading from any page. And each small lesson of these little book provides food for thought.

I read this book whenever I'm short of time, but want to read. It is great.

A small excerpt from the very first lesson of the book:

We can fire a missile across the world with pinpoint accuracy, but we have trouble keeping a date with our children to go to the library. We have e-mail, fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We have lost touch with our humanity. We have lost touch with our purpose. We have lost sight of the things that matter the most.
Isn't it worth pondering? We're busy checking our phones and emails every 5 minutes but we forget to check our purpose, our goals and our family members. We continuously try to refresh our news feed on Facebook and Twitter, but we don't have time to refresh our monotonous and clutter-filled lives.

And as Robin Sharma asks us respectfully:

Who will cry when you die? How many lives will you touch while you have the privilege to walk this planet? What impact will your life have on the generations that follow you? And what legacy will you leave behind after you have taken your last breath?

So as Robin suggests: We need to find our "calling" - our purpose in life. How you'd like to be remembered? And engage ourselves into some worthy pursuits. A unique purpose awaits us for which God has sent us on earth.
