I’ve been traveling for work, for the last 3 years in Dhaka. During this period, I’ve had a chance to study how traffic jams in Dhaka effect people.
Usually, on the outside it seems like a very normal issue. But let’s take a closer look at this. A working person wastes almost 2 to 4 hours on a daily basis traveling for work. These hours are forever gone from a person’s life and can never be brought back (even if you make an offer under the table)… Try living with that loss everyday.
We wake up in the morning, fresh and ready to start the day, but then met with a dreadful traffic jam. This takes away half the energy already and by the time we reach our offices, we face numerous issues… Another nose dive for the energy level, while the stress level goes up.
If you’re lucky enough, you’ll have a disaster at work, this will conveniently raise the stress level higher. On top of all of this, if you’re married, your spouse will probably give you a call. Try dealing with that on a calm mind.
By the time you’re ready to leave office, your superior will most likely burden you with a last minute task. Yup… Stress goes up and energy… wait, what’s energy?
You’re already late, the traffic’s gotten worse and no matter what mode of transport you choose, you’re gonna be stuck in a jam. Even the thought of that, sends chills down the spine. When you finally get out of the office, your stress level is way over your head and you’re super cranky. Even a small issue seems like a mountain at that time…
