If the answer is ‘no’ for too many days in a row, you should probably change something. – Steve Jobs
We all have to do things that we don’t want to and have mundane days with whatever we’re doing, but life is short – don’t waste your time on things that don’t make you happy or aren’t fulfilling. There’s a saying that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life, but that’s not always true. Some days are plain difficult or kind of boring, no matter how much you love what you do. Just don’t let waking up feeling disheartened be your life. Change isn’t always easy, but even small changes can help to improve your day.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs
Game Plan: Do you wake up most days feeling good, and ready to enjoy the day? If not, what can you change to get more out of it and start enjoying your life?
