SOMETIMES WE DO REALLY TERRIBLE QUALITY WORK. CONSCIOUSNESS PEOPLE ARE THE FIRST ONES TO REALIZE THE POOR QUALITY OF THEIR OWN WORK, AS WELL AS THEIR DISINTEREST AND LACK OF MOTIVATION WITH RESPECT TO THIS WORK. THEY DODGE HAVING TO HEAR THEIR OWN INTERNAL, AND OTHERS’ CRITICISMS. IT IS OK TO ADMIT ONE’S DEFICIENCIES, LEARN MORE AND DO BETTER, OR MOVE ON TO TASKS AND WORK WHERE WE CAN EXCEL AND THAT GIVE US A TRUE SENSE ACCOMPLISHMENT, JOY, AND PRIDE.

WITHIN OUR OWN FAMILIES, WE HAVE TEENAGERS WHO WILL PUMP IRON FOR HOURS PER WEEK, DO INSANE PHYSICAL FEATS, REPEATEDLY, FOR TIK TOK, BUT WILL NOT DO ANY OF THESE SIMPLE PHYSICAL ACTS FOR AN HOUR OR TWO A WEEK: PICK UP THEIR ROOM, PUSH A LAWN MOWER, RAKE LEAVES, DO THE DISHES, TAKE OUT THE TRASH (without having to be asked, or having a knock down, dragged out fight).

SO MANY OF US HAVE LEARNED FROM OUR FAMILIES TO KEEP OUR MOUTHS SHUT WHILE WE SIMMER, ANGRILY. THIS IS WHY, LATER IN LIFE, NEITHER WE, NOR OTHERS, UNDERSTAND HOW LONG THE SIMMERING HAS BEEN GOING ON BEFORE OUR “SURPRISINGLY”, EXPLOSIVE, AND ANGRY OUTBURSTS.

ISSUES WHICH DISTRACT FROM THE FACT THAT OUR ADDICTED, ANXIOUS, OBSESSED, ADHD’D, TRAUMATIZED, OR DEPRESSED BRAINS (which we need to trust) ARE AT THE ROOT OF OUR MOST SEVERE PROBLEMS: PERSONALITY DIFFICULTIES, FAMILY STRIFE, SOCIAL TENSIONS, WORK RELATED CONFLICTS, FINANCIAL TROUBLES, AND LEGAL ISSUES.

IT IS FRIGHTENING, BUT ALSO EXCITING, THAT WHEN WE TAKE A SHORT VACATION, THE PERSON STANDING IN FOR US DOES A DRAMATICALLY BETTER JOB THAN WE DO (and is actually enthusiastic while performing it).

All of us need to eventually have a competent successor.

We all need to be able to take a vacation and not have everything collapse or pile up, waiting for our return.

This is a reminder for us to keep learning, and improving.

We should always be considering moving up or out, before we are told to improve, or are left behind, or we are let go.

PART OF OUR FRUSTRATIONS AND ANXIETIES ARE THAT THERE ARE SO MANY POSSIBILITIES (of the unknowns, of our understandings, of our interpretations, of the problems which surround us) AND SO MANY ASSOCIATED CHOICES TO BE MADE, AND ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN.

SPECULATING (“investing”) IN ALMOST ANY CRYPTOCURRENCY IS SIMILAR TO HAVING UNPROTECTED SEX WITH A STRANGER… MAYBE SOMEBODY WILL GET AWAY WITH IT, OR MAYBE SOMEONE WILL GET PREGNANT, OR MAYBE SOMEBODY WILL GET AN STD. CRYPTOCURRENCY AND NFT SPECULATIONS HAVE AN ENORMOUS NUMBER OF UNKNOWNS, ARE ESSENTIALLY UNREGULATED, AND PROVIDE NO PROFESSIONALS OR ORGANIZATIONS TO EXPLAIN OR ASSIST THOSE OF US WHO ARE LOST, OR ARE IN TROUBLE. THESE SEVERE LIMITATIONS MAKE THEM INAPPROPRIATE FOR ALMOST ANYONE TRYING TO PAY DAY-TO-DAY BILLS OR WHO ARE RETIREMENT FOCUSED.

A WAY TO FEEL DIFFERENTLY ABOUT THE POTENTIAL FOR UNWANTED CHANGE IS FOR US TO CHOOSE TO ADD (lessons, experiences, people, growth, costs, pains) TO OUR LIVES. OTHERWISE IT WOULD BE TOO SAD AND TOO PAINFUL TO CONSIDER THESE CHANGES AS LOSSES OR AS DISASTERS.

SO MANY OF OUR REACTIONS, WORDS, AND BEHAVIORS SEEM ORGANIC, FORMED FOR THE MOMENT, FROM THE MOMENT. HOWEVER, WE ARE ALL MANIPULATED, SUBTLY, OR OVERTLY, BY OUR PASTS.
