This is a recipe for creating goals and going after them. It is meant for people who only scroll through feeds or spend their time being lazy. Setting a goal and being involved in the process of obtaining it is actually very pleasurable, and the aftertaste of having achieved big and small things is lightly sweet. Caution: it takes work, which not everyone is fond of. SERVES 1 TO UNLIMITED
- A sober mind
Most of these are obtainable from an ‘average to good’ upbringing.
If you haven’t learned how to use your energy for a set plan instead of watching TV, you’ll have develop these traits yourself. There is no hiding behind faulty parents or low socio-economic status.
- Obtain a sober mind. You won’t get anywhere by drinking or doing drugs. You already know. You’re just distracting yourself.
- Let ideas enter the mind. If you’re not accustomed to getting ideas and turning your brain ‘on’, sit in a quiet place and notice thoughts running through your head.
- You’ll find that some of these ideas are worth developing. Write these down.
- Do research on the idea you want to develop. This might cause you to read a book (a positive side effect) or use the internet for information instead of social media.
- Use your energy and discipline to work on some of these ideas.
Take it easy tiger, don’t try to do it all at once! Just pick one and work on it. When you’re finished, work on the next one. Write new ideas down as you’re working.
- Be sure to celebrate your work and share it with others. Work is only good if it serves people.
When repeated, the result is likely to be an activity in your life that’s not browsing through social media feeds. Congratulations, you’re now someone with a personality. Enjoy.
