Doing things you hate doing

There are two ways you can grow in life

1. Doing the things you really like to do

2. Doing things you really don’t like doing

Finding your True North needs a lot of patience and dedication.

It is a difficult path, full of trials, mistakes, and failures.

I believe if you live long enough, you would eventually find your calling. Some find it at 20 and others at 45. Doesn’t matter. Don’t stress over it.

If you dare to be a little more optimistic, you will always find your true calling. The question would be whether you chase it or not.

Anyway, the essence of this post is the second aspect because things you don’t like to do are often found in abundance.

And there is always a reward attached to them.

Most people fall for this trap, after all, it is a lucrative trap.

Then there is a hybrid approach: Keep on doing things you don’t like to do until you find something that you would really like to do.

People seeking financial freedom and early retirement follow the hybrid approach.

Which choice is the best?

Well, how does it matter as long as you grow?


Think before you take a break!

Here is what happens when you take a break.

Last year I got very consistent at writing on #LinkedIn.

Wrote hundreds of posts, organic reach on my website spiked-up.

I inspired a few, met awesome people here.

I received some very good feedback on the way I write and put my ideas across.

Somewhere in October, I decided to take a small break, I thought I “deserve” it.

That small break derailed everything for me.

Eventually, it led to a hiatus in my flow and consistency.

I could have developed so much more.

I am less curious now than I was back then.

I am less creative now than I was back then.

The break made a small dent in my belief system.

Consistency drives the wheel of our belief system.

Consistency is like the law of inertia; an object in motion stays in motion.

The moment you halt/take a break, things fall apart.

Our life is no different.

Think before you take a break.

Think before you take a career break.

Think before you take a break from your exercise routine.


A small break in your #routine can make you fall apart.

It can derail your belief system and can make you a different person altogether.
