Assume you have had some problems..you are 5′ 9″ tall ..and your weight is 114kg. Suddenly you fall in love with yourself and want to come to a weight of about 80kg.
How will you go about doing it?
- Go to a surgeon and remove the extra fat with surgery. Then do a stomach stapling so that you cannot overeat.
- Go on a GM diet for 30 weeks at a stretch
- Go on a diet to give up all fat, oil, cholosterol, etc.
- Go to a dietician cum health consultant and enroll for a 3 week program
- Go and enroll in a gym ‘hoping’ to make a change?
Well nothing will work. Let us assume instead of all this you meet a good friend of yours and who is a good runner staying near our house. He suggests small changes.
He wants you to eat very carefully, and record it in www.myfitnesspal.com so that at the end of the day you know what you have eaten. He then wants you to start walking for about 40 minutes a day – in 2 slots of 20 minutes each. Morning and evening. You start doing that and lose about 5 kg in the first 45 days. YOU ARE HAPPY but some of your friends are saying “we could have done so much faster”.
Suddenly in 90 days you find that you are about 103 kgs and your dream of being in 2 digits looks real.
Your friend now starts you on a weight training, and cardio routine in his gym. In 180 days you are at 93 kgs and you are thrilled.
Now your personal target of 80kg looks possible. So what if it takes another 180+ days.
Which is the better route?
The small incremental changes or the big one that looked better?
Now come to Na Mo. He too is making small incremental changes which are sustainable. He could have removed all bank boards and merged 15 banks. Would it have worked? Congress and its cronies would have scuttled everything.
Instead he is making small incremental changes. Jan Dhan Yojana, Gold scheme (i need more clarifications on Income tax, wealth tax), appointing 4 men with good clean track records as bank Chairman (caveat: I may know them).
Remember none of the big things would have had any impact. Yes the press would have loved it…but..the small incremental steps of Na Mo seems to be far, far more useful.
