Writing about something for the sake of writing is actually readable writing? I wonder.
Okay, let me try it out and see what happens.
What are we running towards? A little more money, a little more security, a little more love, a little more respect, a little more fun, a little more something.
What are we trying to pursue in life?
Happiness? Wealth? Fame? Endless joy? Bliss?
Whatever our goal might be, realize that inadvertently we’ll be failing in other goals. Or other “Standards” that generally we base our lives on.
Instant distraction: media
Instant reward: mobile games
Instant joy: ice cream
Instant high: cigarette
Instant escape: alcohol
Instant rush: candy
Instant sexual stimulation: porn
Instant wealth: ?
Instant health: ?
Instant skill: ?
Instant relationship: ?
Instant respect: ?
Instant self-respect: ???
Whatever gives you temporary relief from a long standing issue is easily available, easy to take up and ultimately bad for you. This is addictive too.
Whereas those that takes years of dedicated work, often not immediately rewarding, are all good for you. Not just you, but everyone else around you as well. (Who doesn’t like a wealthy, healthy, well-read friend?)
Realize this, set your goals properly, choose your targets accordingly and then run.
Run towards them.
Without the hustle and bustle, keep running. It is like a marathon, so pace yourself. Take occasional breaks, but make sure you always keep one eye on the target (which again might change, because priorities change).
