I had an exam today. The subject was Heat and Mass Transfer. This subject is really wonderful. Thermodynamics has always fascinated me. From entropy to temperature. But when it comes to equations, my brain stops functioning. Damn brain…
When I was writing the exam and there were many times when I didn’t know what to write and this is pretty normal for me, I found something. Something which is beyond the scope of the subject. Generally, they don’t ask about the contents which are beyond the scope of the book because those are the only things which make us think more and then they claim that the education system expands the horizon. Ha.
I found that most of the times we concentrate on what is there. Like that subject makes us read about the heat transfer. Heat travels from a body which is at a higher temperature than the other one. No doubt. Now, there is another side on which something is taking place. Coolness travels from a low-temperature body to a high-temperature body. Right? Yes, it is. And coolness is just an absence of heat. It makes me think that these are different. But they are not. Nobody has ever told me that.
Then I found another thing. Perspective. It’s about how you look at the objects. Ha. Got it. Like heat transfer, we encounter a number of problems which need our perspective. If you keep concluding that problems are there because of you, you would never enjoy their beauty. Yes, they are the part of your life, but not life.
So, stop worrying about the problems and face them because one day, you will get to know that you have greatness within yourself.
Fortunately, problems are an everyday part of our life. Consider this: If there were no problems, most of us would be unemployed.

And the most important thing is, develop the courage to think differently and do what others are not willing to.
Change the world.
And with this philosophy, I wrote the exam but examiners might not be thinking like me. I wonder if they do.
