Life Is Time

Indar Maharaj Author Interview

The Eloquence of Effort: Beware the Path of Least Resistance is a thought-provoking look at how a person’s nature influences their accomplishments in life using data to support this thesis. Why was this an important book for you to write?

A penetrating question. I thought it is a message needed to be repeated. As a society, we are becoming progressively obsessed with leisurely activity, recreation, quality time etc. – all euphemisms for frittering away valuable time.  Lest we forget, life is time.  Indeed, lasting happiness are the dividends derived from our efforts.

How much research did you undertake for this book and how much time did it take to put it all together?

The sheer volume of references can attest to the depth research that was involved in crafting this document.  Though difficult to quantify, I would say researching, writing and publishing the book consumed over 5 years.

What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?

Of uppermost significance is the notion that regardless of the outcome, meaningful effort is never wasted. Moreover, unearned wealth is fleeting and paid for in coins of misery.  Referencing the lives of Bernie Madoff, John Gotti, Pablo Escobar and Al Capone serves to validate this statement.  If the Law of Entropy is infallible, it seems to me that the empire of Donald Trump is pre-consigned to the cesspools of history.  It has already begun.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

Embrace work in all its tedious forms. It is the vector to success.

The Eloquence of Effort echoes the merits of conscientious toil. It provides an insightful look into the benefits of sustained socio-economic effort. To convincingly argue that dreams are only achievable through mind-numbing toil, the writer draws heavily from biographical, philosophical, economic, religious, historical and scientific data.

Work is the mission; the multiple rewards are the byproducts, he argues. More importantly, the pleasure resides in the effort, not the results. Against the dark backdrop of malignancies inflicted on society by unrepentant leeches, the benefits of worker integrity are sharply focused. The reader is imperceptibly nudged into a higher plane of reality: namely, purposeful effort, regardless of its nature, is supremely rewarding. The writer forces the realization that regardless of the immediate outcome, effort is never wasted. Conversely, indolence is the bane of progress and the root cause of economic crimes. Indeed, corruption in all its diabolical forms is nothing but laziness masquerading as diligence and embraced by those wanting the most for the least.

Analysis of biographical data sustains the thesis that industry prolongs life; indolence truncates it – a finding supported by the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

The persuasiveness of the arguments is supported by a wealth of references. Together they form the final authority; they have given resonance to the arguments contained herein.
