“Knowing what’s right doesn’t mean much unless you do what’s right”
– Theodore Roosevelt
On the journey of preparation to the civils, you will meet a lot of people, some who assume the role of teachers, some who assume the role of students and a special few who assume that of research scholars! They will always have a list of things as to what a civil services aspirant should do and should not do! They will have a list of MUST and MUST NOTs. And they try to shove it down your throat whether you listen to it or not.
I am not taking a jab at them, infact I appreciate how meticulous they are when it comes to making all of it. Infact even we at times make an exhaustive list of what all we want to do and how to go about it. But its not that simple, is it? The idea is, it is easy to know what it takes, but what makes the difference, the only thing that makes the difference is that you do it!
