“Better late than never” is an ancient proverb with a deep veiled meaning. Time and again all of us are told to complete the tasks apportioned to us on time and being lethargic most of us fail to do any assigned work on time. The result is we completely avoid the work and stop doing it further. It is crucial to finish a work on time but what is more imperative is finishing the work. Here comes the significance of the proverb “better late than never” which means that it is all right to be late in completing an activity than never doing it. What is essential is doing the work.
Dear youngsters, it is time to think and act; for the life is only once and over. Yesterday is gone, today is for us, and tomorrow is not sure to whom it belongs. What we do and act today is what we are going to get the result of. While dreaming for a career and personal future, each and every issue in the society does impact on the individual’s thinking. So, it is never late. May be – today is not ours, but it can be possible that tomorrow is ours. It is not the time to be lazy and wait for someone to help. It is time for self to pursuit for everything as we ourselves feel that we are mature enough to decide about life and many things related to life. As the world is nothing but a stage for us to perform when we are on this earth; the point worth memorizing is – which part of acting, one likes to act on this stage of life till the day we live. It is worth reminding too, that the fun & joy we get after accomplishing success in careers & life out of hard work is magnificent and indescribable. So, let us start forecasting and fantasizing immense reveries. Let us start using the God’s treasurable gift – “Mind” and lead our lives for the best of the mankind.
I had learnt an important lesson, I must not be so credulous and quick to succor others for there would be the great possibility that in the end, one can be admonished and dismissed for doing so. I streamlined then that it was better late than never to learn a painful lesson! Similarly goes the saying; it is better to complete a task late than never doing it or than dodging it completely.
