it's overrated

It’s a long way to the top

This ain’t Broadway, but it’s a step in the right direction. The road from here is crowded, and way too long.

They say it’s lonely at the top.

They say you have to be someone special to make it to the top.

What they don’t say is you have to believe what you say.

Why do you want to be on Broadway? Is it worth the grind? Are you raising the bar so high because that’s what everyone who’s anyone says you have to do?

Emotion Trumps Everything

Comparison is the thief of joy

expectations gap and unhappiness
Facebook insidiously leaves us unhappy as we view everyone’s “Life Highlights Reel”.

 

expectations gap and unhappiness
Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams. Right?

 

expectations gap and unhappiness
Person B is always happier, statistically through research.

 

expectations gap and unhappiness
The culprit for unhappiness…

 

Comparison is the thief of joy.

Comparing what we want (expect) to happen and what actually happens.

Comparing what happens to others (the good stuff) to what happens to us.

Comparing our past memories of our world to the world we see today with all our adult responsibilities.

Dear Son

Do you love it when it gets overwhelming?

Karma
Last night on Facebook.

 

Do you love it when it gets overwhelming?

Love what?

Being present in the moment.

Work as hard as you like.

Just don’t let it suck the life out of you.

Anyone Else Think Like This?

There’s no happiness in the future

(photo: This is what Cinderella Castle looks like when no one is around.)

Spent 30 years on the front line, eventually understanding the front line is where joy reigns.

There’s no happiness in the future. Yet we bank on it anyway.

What the heck?

Seriously.

Ask yourself to prove this doesn’t apply to you.

Self reflection?

Look around at the people above you on the org-chart. Are they ridiculously happy?

(Pause for the reflection and crickets.)

It’s why all personal efforts to get promoted began being shunned in 2004.
