It’s difficult to admit that we’re not doing our best. There are times that we forget to put our best foot forward, a little less than the best we can do. At least, that’s how it’s perceived. It’s hard to admit that we have it rough. The truth is, we can’t always do everything perfectly. We’re just not as good as we think we are.
Its easy to just not do everything we think we should, because we lack self-awareness. As a result, we end up doing little about things on our plate, and it comes back to bite us later. We end up doing little about things that we thought were important to us, and it comes back to bite us later.
What makes it worse is when we fail to recognize that we have a lot of things that we can do better. It might sound trivial, but it’s still a big deal. We can do a lot better. We just need to stop being lazy and start doing it. And in itself, that’s hard, because we dont see the impact that we’re making.
We don’t want to do anything that we can’t do better, but we have done some pretty good things by keeping ourselves busy, including doing something that we should be doing. It turns out that a lot of people have been working on these things in the last few years, but they tend to be a few more or less than we should.
We have a good idea of what their future is, so we shouldn’t worry about them. But we don’t really care about them. They’re still there, and we’re just taking them, and going about our day. We need to do a better job looking at how the world is for them.
It used to be that people were interested in people who looked hard at them, and then eventually said, “Oh, you should go to the gym, that’s where you should be”. It used to be that we’d talk about how hard we worked at school, and that we’d talk about how awesome it was to be the best in school. But these days, people are more interested in getting a job, or in getting a relationship, or in getting a promotion.
What’s interesting in the last several years is that things have really moved in the direction of this. The whole idea of “looking” has gotten more important. In fact, looking has become so important that we have to talk about what we think we should look like.
So, this is what we should look like in the age of the world’s first “reality” show.
The idea of looking is one of the most powerful tools in the world that we have. The whole idea of looking has become more important than the ability to speak, to write, to read, to do math, to play games, to work in teams, to do what we do. It’s about looking at yourself. It’s about being aware of the world around you. It’s about being aware of your environment. It’s about being aware of what the world is doing to you.
Look at your life. Look at your work. Look at the way the world is now. Look at what this age is doing to you. Look at what you can control. Look at what you can do.
