“Life is unpredictable and you never know what is coming next. Don’t ever get too comfortable. Always be ready for changes.”
This week has been a bit hectic…
When I thought I wouldn’t get sick, my partner got sick, which I was affected slightly.
When I thought that my car is perfectly fine, the battery went flat twice this week.
When I thought that work is stable, someone decides to not cooperate.
When I thought I have sent my completed job application, I forgot to attach my resume.
Besides life’s unpredictability. I want to write down my greatest problem. My goal has always been seeking the next comfort zone to reach. But after I entered a comfort zone and if the next comfort zone is not easily reachable… I tend to let loose. This is not good. I am not ready for changes. Especially changes in my habit. When we are younger, we were taught to delay our gratification, we often have to work hard to reach a reward for ourselves. But as we grow older and more independence was given to us, it is also easier for us to be distracted and seek for other gratifications.
Self-discipline has never been so difficult when you became an adult. It takes extra effort to remain goal-oriented and delay our gratification even longer.
