As Human beings, we have the ability to think. It is the greatest super power we have that separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. Without our developed minds, and our ability to comprehend and communicate, we are no better than a crocodile.
Have you ever felt like your life is operating on an auto-pilot mode? You aren’t using much of your brain, you are just sitting on your couch, watching tv, working for a bit, and snap – their goes by the whole day. Before you know six months have past already.
There is another pattern I recently noticed. This is specific to me – I don’t think many people would be able to relate. I, umm, I feel sad during the weekends. Yeah, I feel sad when I am supposed to be happy and enjoy the day off. Don’t get me wrong, I do have fun, like I go out with friends, have a good time, eat well, and stuff. But, it’s not the same. Somehow, I miss the weekdays. I know I am weird.
I thought about it a lot. I am probably a goal-oriented person. If I got no goals, I got no motivation to get up and work hard. I will procrastinate if I have to go out for Lunch, but if I have a deadline, then I will wake up early morning to get it done. I have been like this all my life. One goal after another. I have managed to get big tasks done without realizing the difficulty of it at the first place.
You have goals? Go after it. They may seem difficult. Don’t even think about the blockers. Think about the outcome. Focus on the final state.
It’s very easy to take things for granted when you have achieved your dream life. You think you have it all. That’s pretty much where the autopilot starts. I don’t like autopilot. I don’t want automation, I want to stand up, walk up to my switch board, and off the lights myself. Automation is good, but how lazy have we become that we can’t even walk 2 seconds across our room?
Well well this post may appear motivating. Let me tell you, I have no idea what I am writing. I am trying to find my NEXT goal. I am aimlessly searching all over the space for ideas to take up. I think that is fine. That is okay. The moment you stop searching for your next one, that is the time to pinch yourself hard.
