You might just do something meaningful. Boredom doesn’t like it. Boredom tries to stay away from meaningful.
By all means avoid everything meaningful if you like being bored. Being bored is hard while you do meaningful stuff.
This is the same logic I saw in a Charlie Brown comic a while back on a different subject. It made me smile. Then it made me think. Then it made me change my posture. It was a posture related gig.
Meaningful doesn’t mean the same to me and you. Don’t do stuff I find meaningful. Unless you find them meaningful too. In which case let’s do them together. And I really mean it. 🙂
Apply the same rule to everybody else.
“Friends are weird. You find some random human and think to yourself ‘Hey, I like this one’, and then you go and do shit together.” – read the fortune cookie. Or was that a digital equivalent to a fortune cookie (yeah, text in an image). Except you can’t eat an image, eh…
When did people stop making choices on the course of their life in the same way they choose their friends?
Clutter sucks. Clutter shields your view. Clutter makes you miss things. Obvious things.
Things like there are some friends who you didn’t choose based on the fortune-cookie rule above. But you call them friends anyway. Because they are always here. They are always here because you’re a tool. You’re a tool to them. They use you and abuse you. They are the clutter. Loose them. You’ll have more room for those you like. Simplify.
Apply the same rule to everything else.
Final and probably the most important.
There are places in time or in space where you would like to be. There are also things you like and enjoy doing. And of course there are people who you like to spend your time with.
Life is like dance, it doesn’t consists only of steps you make, but of the motion between those steps. Steps are here just so you know where you are on the dance-floor. Dancing is everything in between.
Let’s make a straight-forward sentence out of this:
Locate the places where you wanna be, things you like doing and friends you wanna keep around, and then find a way to get to that places using means you like doing. Don’t keep track. Improvise.
What steps are you taking?
