I Don’t Know About You, But I’m Done Caring About Whether Or Not It’s Going To Work

I’m gonna do it anyway.

There’s something wildly freeing about letting go of your expectations.

Believe me, I know. I just let go of them. Right now. It feels amazing.

Everyone’s so focused on what outcome their process leads to that it distracts them from the process itself.

I still have high standards because high standards are good for you.

But you can have high standards while at the same time not letting perfectionism become another form of procrastination.

You can free yourself of your expectations and put in the work anyway.

I think the root of all of our frustration comes down to several things: our expectations, our lack of patience, and worrying about things we can’t control.

I don’t care anymore. I don’t care if it doesn’t work out.

I don’t care about “luck”. I’ll try and create my own.

I don’t care about “slim chances”. I’ll give everything to that chance.

I’ll try and try and try.

I’m going to try anyway because I’d rather do that than sulk in my misery.
