Are you doing something you’re not supposed to be doing?

Are you doing something you're not supposed to be doing?

Many people, at many times, and in many places are doing something that they’re not supposed to be doing. Usually, this is because they don’t want to do what they’re supposed to be doing at all, or because what they’re supposed to be doing holds less appeal than what they’re… not supposed to be doing.

 

This leaves us with three alternatives.

 

  1. Get a job where you work with what you’re not supposed to be doing. Heck, start your own business doing it.

     

  2. Apply willpower to keep yourself restrained to what you’re supposed to be doing. Then allow misery to commence.

     

  3. Find out why you’re not doing what you’re supposed to be doing. Dig deep for this one.

 

You see, if you know why you’re not doing what you’re supposed to be doing, there’s a highly likelihood that the how – of fixing it, that is – will dawn on you.

 

Incidentally, it may very well be that the how coincides with alternative number one.

 

All that remains then is to ask: what’s the worst that could happen if you make a change?
