Why Making Dots Is Important and How Connecting Them Might Save You In the Future.

Hello SCG,

you might recall words from speech by Steve Jobs at Stanford, when he talked about, him taking a course in caligraphy  (start at minute 5:01):

Of course, it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards 10 years later. Again, you cannot connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So, you have to trust that dots will somehow connect in your future. (end at 5:17 minute)

I have been reflecting on my life’s journey very intensively these days and I am deeply grateful to all ” five lives I have lived.” What do I mean by it?

During each of these lives, I have made dots. Dots, which might have no major significance at the moment when they happened, but they have gained its importance later in my life. Let me share with you, one such story of connecting dots from my early days in Dubai.

I was still a student in my last year of University, when I have got an opportunity to get 3 months internship in Dubai.  I have been provided an accommodation in very nice small apartment located in a new residential area of Dubai. I was amazed by the facilities of the neighborhood: pool, basketball court (yay!!), gym, party room, barbecue spots and many other cool things. BUT I did not know a soul there, till…
