It has become common practice to talk about time as our most precious gift. The reason for that being time is limited and we don’t even know how much of it we have left. Everyone should value their time on this planet and put it to good use. It has become a thing lately because most people became addicted to their social media and binge watching Tv. So all those people talking about time are just making sure we are aware of how sad it is to waste our time.
The side affect of that is anxiety. Fear to waste our time doing the wrong thing, therefore we don’t stick to decisions. I realize this clearly on myself. The pressure to carpe diem while planning for the future, the pressure of doing what I love while paying the bills, the pressure to spend and save. But the hardest part is, the pressure to choose the right thing. Making a decision and sticking to it for a long period of time requires a mix confidence and knowledge, intuition and stubbornness. I often doubt if I am on the right path, is this is the right thing to be doing today, if this is the right project to be working on, etc. The fear to waste my time is there everyday, every hour. I don’t want to look back and see that I made the wrong choice. I should have done that. But no-one can know for sure, can they? We don’t know the future, life is a gamble. A game of chance, you need to be willing to lose to win. I am learning to let go of some insecurities and see where that road takes me. It’s extremely hard for me but I know in order to make progress on anything, it’s important to see it through. Without a map, I’m not sure if there is an easy way.
