What if you stopped doing the things you disliked or hated?
I think about the people who go to work every day yet hate their jobs. They are faithful to a clock—working forty or more hours a week—giving their time and energy to a company that treats them like a witless drone and sees them as a disposable commodity. That is cruel and unusual punishment to one’s self. Think about it. This has to be another level of insanity—engaging in activities that bring you stress, anxiety, unfulfillment, and unhappiness.
Why are you at a job you hate? Why are you in a relationship that is headed off a cliff? Why are you pursuing small goals that will not add any value to your life?
Let’s consider the reversal. What if you only did the things you loved? What would your life look like?
Could you imagine how fulfilling your life would be if you got up every day and all you did were the things you loved doing and nothing else? Imagine spending your waking hours only engaging in activities that brought you fulfillment.
