Do What You Want To Do
“Work is more often a source of frustration than one of fulfillment for nearly 90 percent of the world’s workers. Think of the social, emotional, and perhaps even economic waste that this statistic represents. Ninety percent of adults spend half their waking lives doing things they would rather not be doing at places they would rather not be.” Barry Schwartz
From the book “Why We Work” by Barry Schwartz as published in Brain Pickings Weekly by Maria Popov.
It’s a pretty obvious plus 1, doing what makes you happy. I know from personal experience that isn’t always possible, but what is possible is being able to maintain a positive attitude as you work towards changes in your life and lifestyle.
You can, and should do little things each and every day to carry you closer to your goal. It’s much easier to maintain a positive attitude IF you do positive things every day.
If you concentrate on the negative you will be more susceptible to being negative, and the Plus 1 effect goes out the window.
You are what you think. Plus 1 leads you to think well of yourself.
