Let's face it...
2018 was a rough year for many people around the world.
However, if there's one critical lesson we should learn today more than ever, it is this: It's not what happens to us that determines how our life works out. It's what we do about it that matters.
Alright, so I turned 24 and I thought I’ll do something special this time. I thought I’ll write about what I’ve learned so far on my brief time on this planet.
Originally, I wanted it to be 24 lessons. But when I started writing, 24 turned into 35, which turned into 48, which turned into 62. Way too many…
So I went through the whole list again, and sure enough, I started to recognize patterns. I realized that some lessons were like branches of a bigger, unifying principle. Eventually, after countless revisions, I ended up with these 30 big ideas.
Here’s what I know about you:
You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself.
While you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them.
Our ability to focus, to block-out distractions and really bear down on the task at hand is a hugely underrated mental asset. Some people learn to use this priceless resource efficiently, while others waste it.
The good news is that our ability to pay attention — to focus — works much like a muscle. If we use it either poorly or too infrequently, it will wither. But if we work it, it will grow. It's the case of the old saying: What you don't use, you lose.
