This time I want to talk about productivity. I’ve come to an age by which I was supposed to have it all figured out, or so I thought. But when I look around, none of my friends have it figured out, my seven-years-older brother has no idea, only those few people I follow on Instagram are rock’n’rollin’. I hardly believe that Instagram is the real representation of one’s accomplishments, however, it made me think about why some people make it and some don’t.
These last 30 days, I’ve had many exams and I’ve passed all of them without a problem. It wasn’t stressful, I organized myself very well and I can say I nailed it. In my introductory post I’ve mentioned that I’m good at planning and bad at realizing, when in reality I’m just very bad at beginning. I want to learn many languages, I want to do sports, I want to earn a lot of money, I want to travel everywhere and what is most important I want to start moving faster towards that goal. I’ve done some things for which I deserve some credit but I want more. So I started to think about what was the difference between people who do hobbies, who do earn money, who do travel and people who plan but get lost in their dreams. The answer was simple; it is doing, doing and a little more doing. You have to be productive, committed and persistent.
How a simple answer like that requires such a strong will? And what can we do about it? Are some people just born with it and those who haven’t had that luck are out of the ‘success’ picture?
