There you are on the bus, riding it around from one place to the next. You’re looking out the window at the scenery and the people, and your mind is telling you that you should be doing this already. You’re a little uncomfortable with the thought, but you remind yourself that you’re supposed to be doing this. Your body is telling you to go ahead and ride it, even if you’re not sure why.
On the other hand, as I pointed out in a previous post, youre not supposed to be doing this already, and youre a little too comfortable with the thought.
So like a lot of things in life, we all think were doing almost everything at a certain time. I mean, we can do that for a lot of reasons, but we should at least be doing other things, too. We should be doing things on, on, on. I mean, sometimes we could even be doing things in the future, but we wouldnt have the comfort of being already doing them.
The problem is that we, as a society, are very comfortable with the idea of doing things in the future, but we have trouble making ourselves that comfortable. I mean, let’s just take a second here to ask ourselves just what are we actually doing right now.
There are some things that we are doing right now that are pretty damn important, but we’re not doing them on purpose. People who do these things intentionally and are dedicated and skilled at what they’re doing have an incredible amount of self-awareness. They’re able to look back at their work and think “Huh… that was pretty cool, but I wish I had done that a few years ago.” They understand that the time they’re spending doing it is just an insignificant part of their life.
In other words, if you want something done, something that is hard to do, you have to do it in your head. The truth is, the more you do it, the more you are doing it, because if you don’t do it right now, you’re going to be forever alone.
So we can’t see ourselves doing a lot of things, we cant see how little things are doing it for us, and we cant see how much we are doing it, we just have to be in the right mental state to do it. So we need to be able to see ourselves doing what we’re doing, and know that we are doing it in the right state of mind at the right time.
So we need to be in a mental state to feel that, because if we feel like we are, then we are. Feeling like we are and knowing we are, makes us have a sense of purpose. That sense of purpose makes us do things we wouldn’t do otherwise, it makes us act that way, it makes us care (and even love) about the things we do.
The secret to staying in the right mental state to do something is to know your purpose. When you do something, you know it’s for the right reason. Knowing your purpose is the key to how you stay in the right state of mind to do stuff. If you don’t know your purpose, then you are just playing a game. So if you just sit there and do nothing, you are just playing a game.
If you don’t know you did something, then you don’t care, but you do need to know what you mean by what you’re doing. Being in the right mental state to do something is like being in the wrong mental state to do it. Since you’re in the right mental state to do something, you’re in the wrong mental state to do it, and you’re just playing the game.
