It is easy to make a decision if you only got a few options
What happens if you got way too many to choose from?
This is what happens as we enter the adult life
Life is fairly simple and easy growing up
All you have to do is to get good grades and graduate high school and then perhaps college
Once you graduate college, you are on your own
What do you do?
The great thing is you can do anything you want
The not so great thing is also, you can do anything you want
Where do you even begin?
There is only one of you and so many potential lives that you could have live base on strings of different decisions that you are going to make
There's just way too many choices in this world
The irony about life is that, if you ever want to succeed in anything
The key is to focus on selected few
Bonus if you just focus on just ONE THING
Steve Jobs is successful because he focused solely on ONE THING, innovation on apple products
Warren Buffet is successful because he focused solely on ONE THING, investing
Ghandi is successful because he focused solely on ONE THING, spirituality, to help guide the people
If you want to be jack of all trades, you will end up specializing in none
So make sure you focus absolutely on ONE THING
What do you really want?
This question is super hard to answer and will often take a few days, even weeks.
Sometimes you even have to come back and revisit these questions after a few months or years.
Nevertheless, the "what you really want" question is extremely powerful
It helps you create a direction, a path to a much needed destination deep down inside your heart
With the destination in mind, you will not be lost and drift aimlessly in life
Being a "wanderer" sounds romantic but they are simply just lost
They don't have a clue what they want in life
Eventually, they will have the face the same question once again, "What do you really want?"
So start asking yourself that question now
Every minute you spend coming up to an answer to this question will be an hour you have saved aimlessly wandering, drifting through life
Midlife crisis happens in life because you do not know "What you really want"
Don't waste your time anymore
Your time is limited so make sure you do the hard stuff and live a more fulfilling life rather than just accepting or settling for less
But you must live in the present and now
Yes I do understand that you must be present, but don't ever use that as an excuse to be a lazy bum without a goal
Unless if your goal is to be a lazy bum and simply enjoy life, then you are ok
Once you figure out an answer, or at least have a clue on "What you really want"
All the other choices will simply fall away
Focus on the ONE THING
Nothing is created equal
Some just gives you more joy than others
Figure out your ONE THING
Your future self will be happy that you did
