Our head is spinning with anxious thoughts about today’s to-do list

Eventually, we have to do this for real, along with a million other things.

 

It’s a busy world. Our day, today, probably has our head spinning with how can we possibly accomplish everything before it’s time to go to sleep.

To add to that workload, i’m offering an eight-minute read from Seth Godin about why our educational system influences our need for compliance.

This paralyzes many people

Safety deposit box
Our branch is closing and we need to move somewhere else.

 

Safety deposit box
In 10 years, we accessed our safety deposit box nine times.

 

One simple decision, where will we move our safety deposit box to, has taken an unusually large amount of time.

Why?

Because change often invites opportunity. Is a new bank, closer to home, a better option than our current path?

Contemplating leaving a long-term (banking) relationship is scary. It could also be a game changer.

How much time should we spend deciding what to spend time on?

Not carving out time to figure this out is the easiest excuse for avoiding our fear.

Because if we carved out time, we’d have to face or fear.

Facing fear is the only way to overcome it.

Blinding flash of the obvious.

Go.

Will you overwhelm or underwhelm?

There is always the chance that what we offer can be overwhelming to the recipient.

There is always the chance what we offer isn’t nearly enough.

The simplest notion is that we either thrive or survive

The simplest notion is that we either thrive or survive. Two simple choices that are challenging no matter which we decide to focus on. (click to tweet that)

Choosing not to do the hard work to thrive, means we have defaulted to the hard work of survival.

What we accept be default becomes our standard.

PS. It’s hard either way.

Should this move the needle on our personal satisfaction?

Apple Store Mall at Millenia
Apple Store Mall at Millenia. Yesterday. Is technology making us satisfied?

 

Does the proliferation of free quotes, insights, inspiration, real-life triumph stories – do any of these things move our needle for personal growth?

And is our growth enough to leave us feeling much more satisfied with our life?

i find this an exceptionally interesting question.

Why?

Because i don’t think it’s enough to transform a human being.

What?

i mean, all this stuff, all it does is medicate, distract, and entertain us.
