The Desire for More

#brainfarts is a series where I take some time out every Sunday to think and write about some real questions that come to my brain.

I want to do more. No matter how much I get done, I want to do more.

Do you feel like you are doing enough?

I was talking to a friend the other day and I told her that she needs to get out more. “The more you put yourself in situations that are alien, where you think you don’t belong, the more questions come to your mind, that probably wouldn’t otherwise, if you were always in a comfortable situation”. I think putting yourself through the unknown makes you learn more. And faster.

“Faster?” She said. “Does it all come down to acceleration?”

You could be living in the comfort of your own mind and probably take more time to reach a question, a learning. Or you might never learn that one thing. It isn’t about quantity. You could learn everything you needed to learn, without any external triggers.

Makes you wonder, is speed even worth it?

With love, thegreybox.
