Wake Up From the Routine
Boring routine work has the most soporific effect on an individual’s life.
This might sound contradictory to what I have previously said before which had to do with consistency and success and rightly so.
When I talk about boring routine work I mean something which an individual does not enjoy doing but has to do it because of life circumstances.
When I talk about consistency and success I mean something which an individual consciously decided to achieve and now has to practice/work towards it every day to achieve the final goal. This is a different topic because this case assumes that everything went perfectly in one’s life and one ended up doing what one loves to do.
The case being discussed in this article is the one in which an individual is forced to do the work, which is 80% if not more of the population. Most people hate their jobs which is a fact.
Now since that is clarified let us move on with the article.
Why does boring routine work has a soporific effect? Do I mean an individual gets sleepy?
When an individual does something that he or she does not enjoy then personal development/progress comes to a halt or could be moving but at infinitesimal speeds. It has a soporific effect on one’s life and one starts living unconsciously as a result of a denial towards the reality.
Now it is different when one is doing that job permanently and when one is doing it temporarily because permanence is the case which REALLY stops the progress; nevertheless temporary timing could do some damage as well.
I remember when I had to work in retail when I was in high school and when I graduated, started going to college and got my first internship I felt like I woke up from a dream. I am not even joking or trying to make it sound magical and mysterious. I honestly felt like it was all a bad dream.
When I write about this I feel every single stage because I have personally been through it all. Because of my denial of reality my confidence dropped dramatically and so I didn’t believe I could do anything better. Thanks to my parents I found some courage to move on and achieve my goals but if I was alone I would have forever stayed asleep in that state of mind.
I am writing this article not to show that I am the man but to perhaps help someone reading this to be able to break away from that state of mind, wake up and realize that this life is vast filled with numerous possibilities and if one is not afraid to go after one’s dreams that is when the REAL journey starts.
