It’s so easy in life to lose focus and go into a mental passivity. I can reflect many years of my life feeling like that. It’s always a constant fight to not let the world rapture your attention away to dreamland that pulls you away from the things you truly want longterm, for something you like right now.
I think the number one reason we do this is because humans have a hard time quantifying and envisioning long-term goals being actualized. It’s hard to know, ‘ it seems so far from now,’ ‘does it really matter if I do it anyway,’ all those things we think about our natural human defaults.
By ignoring your human defaults is the way to get inhuman results. Because human DNA is flawed, we reject many of the things that work to weaken us. Modern life wasn’t suited for the massive array of distractions that we have now, so we all need to work on nurturing our minds with the things that align with our vision of our future.
