What is life without the drive to continuously improve yourself?
I’ve always been afraid of one thing, being stagnant. Last week was a good example of that fear in real life. It was in class when half-way through the lesson, I realised that I did not know anything about the topic and what the lecturer was talking about. That was when I panicked and became frustrated with my inability to understand and prepare beforehand. It was not really because I couldn’t understand the topic but instead, the underlying fear of stagnation, of wasting time in the lecture when I could’ve done something productive.
That fear has always been with me, sometimes, even paralysing my ability to rest properly and let go of work.
Though I may sound like a workaholic, I’m not. I just like to do things that are productive and continue to make whatever I do a +1.
Well, like many of my other blog posts, there really isn’t any conclusion to this story, just an entry that I would like to share with all of you.
Maybe, if there’s a lesson to learn from here, it shall be this. To always improve yourself but have time to rest, for with rest, you’ll come back stronger.
