Solving the equation of Life

While doing MBA , I had taken a course called Advance Decision Analysis . The course was about solving equations with all constraints satisfied . Now We could solve all those things in excel solver or premium solver . Now after I leaned that tool , I asked myself whether there can be ever a tool to solve the equations of life . Yes  there can be if we know all the constraints of life before hand and they remain constant all through the time  of solving the equations . The beauty of life is the way all these constraints change and morph and the way we always feel the need to catch up with them . No tool can give you the optimum result if the boundary conditions change always . Sometimes when we feel that we are just about solving the equation , the constraints just move at such a place that you feel lost and sometimes you are in the darkest zone of your life , the constraints just vanishes and you say "I was Close" . Then who makes  all these and who decides which equations can be solved and which can never be ? 
Now what I can say is that Life is not about black and white , it's all about the complex shades of grey which makes it more enjoyable 

The Link

So one day in my new workplace while I was trying to learn the tube marketing business I found a set of  documents . The documents consisted of a Bill of lading , one insurance document . When I viewed the insurance document , I observed that the insurance was issued by New India Assurance and the it was Marine cargo insurance . 
So the link is I worked in the same project of TCS which one ensured the implementation of core insurance module in NIA and from the design of the insurance document , I could very well tell that nothing has changed from the time when I left the project . And the term Bill of Lading .Can you guess where did I first learn the term ? It was while working in the Trade Finance module of Finacle at Infosys . 
So I smiled to myself and told me that I got the answer ... It all merges if you connect the dots .. THE Link  .. from Infy to TCS to ISMT .. as if everything has been planned and what I need to do is to keep trying and keep exploring the terrain to amuse myself and hence enjoy the journey .
