So, this morning I was talking to Marta and I asked her to start an interesting conversation. Her question was the title of this blog post. I’ve been answering and thinking about this question a lot lately and I was surprised that out of all questions in the world she decided to ask me THIS. Anyway, here is what I have learned and I will break it down for you:
So we have lists, right? Bucket lists, new year’s list etc. We need to first figure out that out of all the things that you’ve written, what all in the list comprises of things that you SHOULD do. For example, maybe you think that you should start eating healthier because your parents are forcing you to or maybe you should go out and socialize more because otherwise you’re a loser. BUT DON’T YOU GET IT!? You don’t want to eat healthier because maybe you already are concious of those things or you don’t want to go out and socialise because you like your own company and you rather read a book than talk to someone. Something’s that we want to do are influenced from an external factor, and those things are something that we never intended to accomplish.
1. DIG DEEPER AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU REALLY, REALLY LOVE TO DO?
Ask yourself – what do you love?
2. BAM! YOU WILL HAVE TIME FOR EVERYTHING YOU LOVE TO DO BECAUSE YOU GENUINELY ENJOY IT!
Embrace what you really want to do, what you really love. Otherwise life will give you numerous reasons not to.
The thing about separating the should list and the real list is clarity. Once you have clarity about what all you genuinely love and are willing to make time for them, then I assure you that you will find time to do it.
Take your time.
