7 Lessons from Justin Timberlake

with 10 comments

Being forced into watching In Time, a sci-fi starring Justin Timberlake & Amanda Seyfried, I got more than what I paid to multiplex guys [Details later]. In Time is set in middle of 22nd century where humans are genetically modified to stop ageing beyond 25 years. From the 25th birthday onwards, everyone has one year to live, which slowly ticks away on a neon-green LED embedded in their left arm. Also, time is equivalent of currency – you can buy a cup of coffee for Four minutes and a night’s stay in a hotel suite for Three months. So more time you have, richer you are. But, if time on your arm runs out, you get a kick (different from the one in Inception) and you are ‘timed out’ forever.

Time is everything.

After Inception, it is the first sci-fi that has managed to give me some philosophical kicks. Movie is full of acid dripping painful truths. I share a few –

Lesson #1: Time is the real currency.

Lesson #2: If you waste time, time will waste you.

Lesson #3: Since we are not immortals, everyday is a gift for you. Treat and live it like it is the last day of your life.

Lesson #4: Everyone is after your time. After all it is what they all survive/feed on. You just need to love yourself and protect your loved ones from those who are out there trying to steal time.

Lesson #5: You can find allies and comrades in strangest of places. So be on the lookout.

Lesson #6: Most people live their lives without knowing what they want. Don’t be one of them.

Lesson #7: You should be ready to take the jump (risk). And as they say, ships are safest at harbors but that is not what they were built for.

After showering you all with life lessons from someone like Justin Timberlake 😉 , here is what I got as a bonus of watching the movie.

Watched the movie from a seat next to the gorgeous lady who drove a F1 carGul Panag!

Lucky Me 🙂
