It has really been a long long time that I have posted every day of the week. So I figured, let’s make this 5 days in a row.
As the title suggests, it is tough keeping up.
Keeping up with the way the world is changing (yeah yeah am getting old).
It’s tough keeping up with things that matter.
It’s tough keeping up with people who don’t matter.
It’s tough keeping up with expectations – your own and of the others.
It’s tough keeping up with societal mores (increasingly these mores are leading to stress in lives of many people).
What is our aim in life? It’s a serious question.
Strip yourself off the predictable answers about success at work and in relationships and then ponder over the question.
Strip away the usual answers that come to your head about being human or larger good. Strip away answers that come to your head that sound politically correct.
What have you got left? Nothing.
So why are you keeping up with everything that doesn’t really matter in your life? Why are you putting up a facade?
Isn’t it time you really gave it some thought.
