It’s Not Just About You

It’s really easy to only worry about yourself and forget that other people are affected by the actions you take.

What do I mean?

There are some days when you don’t feel like investing your time into anything productive. This phase can linger on for days without you actually doing anything.

Believe me, I’ve had many of those days. I’d just be in bed binge-watching series or just scrolling through social media. Then I’d order food, eat and sleep. And then, repeat.

I’d do that for days but what brings me back to action is the title.

I start to think about my future, and how this unproductivity is actually not bringing anything positive. Rather, it’s making me get used to doing nothing.

The good thing is after that phase, I become even more productive because it’s like I’ve been starved of meaningful work, and not doing it has made me even more willing to put in the work.

So, understanding that you’re not living for yourself is the first realization towards seeing that you cannot actually be lazy
