We all have things we want to do. From traveling, to acquiring a new hobby, going back to school, or anything inbetween. The problem is, even though we feel like it’s worth doing, we feel the need to justify our actions through some sort of financial or personal gain.
The thing is, any time we take a leap like this, it’s always worth it. Take it from me, Darryl Hicks, CEO of Tungsten Revenue Consultants and Flexpay, and Co-Founder of Tungsten Solutions. For a while, being involved with so many companies, I became stuck in the same weekly routine. Every Monday was too similar to every other Monday. Sure, it worked for me; I made enough money to support myself and my family. But you’re not truly successful unless you’re happy.
What do I do? Try this simple shortcut.
Go out, take a few days off, and have an adventure. Do something new and spontaneous. Even if you aren’t advancing your career, you are advancing your life satisfaction. After all, why else do we go to the same job every day? To make money, so we can live. But we get too caught up doing the former to experience the latter.
This ideology comes from our childhood. Throughout our schooling, we’ve been told what we need to learn, and when we need to learn it. It’s a good system for getting a basic education, but it creates adults who fall into a tedious consistency or routine. They survive at the cost of living.
If you feel like you want to, or that it’s worth doing, do it. You could:
- Go back to school and finish that degree
- Travel to all the countries in Europe
- Get that dream house, or dream car you’ve always wanted
Or, maybe it’s something smaller, like:
- bury a time capsule
- cut out coffee from your diet
- rearrange some furniture
Every change you make, big or small, is an investment in your future and your happiness. Don’t convince yourself otherwise; it is worth it. Take your happiness by the hand and lead it forward.
