Not As Easy As It Seems

Having gone to bed at 9:30pm last night, I opened my eyes to see my alarm indicate I have slept a full 9 hours. Blissful, dream-filled, and glorious sleep. Turning over to my back, I meant to slowly wake up and get out of bed. As I laid there reflecting back on my dreams, I unfortunately fell back asleep. HA.

Why is it not that easy to go from waking up to getting up?

Love this quote from Quora by Venkat Bharadwaj Jonnavithula. And his self-annointed title “lifehacker”.

May be there is nothing that is exciting enough to wake up early in the morning and do. So you feel, ‘I’d better rest and do it later’.

The brain will try to debate you between getting up and finishing that thing and procrastinating.

So to wake up early, you’d have to have an ‘obsession’ or at least that state of mind that it is a great time and I have to utilize it to do something exciting.

As I sit at work, yawning, no less. I think to myself it must be that time of the year again where I want to accomplish something. I feel like everyone has a special hobby or skill they spend hours perfecting. What’s mine?

I have many things that I want to do, but they all require extra effort. Easy enough but still require extra motivation and time. Yes, time is another factor. I do think that if I had all the time in the world, then it would be easier to focus on one thing and do it well. Reality? I’m too used to rules and having people tell me what to do. I blame upbringing, culture and education system. It taught me that thinking for myself is hard.

That’s why people take classes at the gym, no? A part of me has always hated restrictions and boundaries. What would a world be like without them? Would we be more challenged? Would only the strongest survive? Would there be progress made faster or would it stop altogether? Aren’t innovators sort of like rule breakers? Isn’t that why it’s so hard to innovate?

I leave this last thought… If we are only bound by the rules of ourselves, would society today be the same? Or better? Or worse?
