Our judgement may go wrong but efforts will not be a waste.Most of us do certain actions or execute tasks in hope of achieving some result. There are always some expectations associated with our efforts. That is what keeps us motivated for sustained efforts. After completion of the activity sometimes we find that our judgement about the expected result of the hard work we had put was not commensurate with the actual outcome and we feel that we have unnecessarily wasted time, energy and efforts.
I feel that sometimes our judgement might go wrong but the efforts we do and knowledge and experience we acquire in the process does not go waste. For example if a student is trying for some highly coveted competitive exam like IAS but does not get success it does not mean that what he learned has gone waste. There are many other exams where the same knowledge and learnings can be used and in many cases such students qualify in other exams. So knowledge acquisition and experience never go waste.
