AYA SATO / MDCJ WS: my friend showed me this and wow..
We do a lot of things for reasons besides profit motive. We want to leave the world better than we found it.
If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons, you should get out of this stock.
Its a marathon..not a sprint.
Its good to be eager and enthusiastic but must discipline to slow down sometimes. I promote people to burn themselves out..to work hard to the point you want to just quit and give up. Work til exhaustion and keep going at it.
I don’t know why I’m sharing this but maybe its the sun or the weather today that is helping me to lift my eyes up and just see. Sometimes we could just get so focused to the point we are in tunnel vision mode and bury ourselves towards goals after goals after goals that just makes our world helplessly dark..
I think good work is always done in the dark anyway in my opinion.
I don’t have like an inspiring or w/e ending to this post. Just wanted to share that’s all and express. This is what tumblr was like..write just because and to not care what people thought about it (?).
One thing I will say for myself that I don’t say enough or should at least is that I’m proud of myself of how far I came within this past year after I graduated. Learned a good amount about myself. Always thought for some reason that acknowledging where you are is like settling in a way haha idk my mentality is odd..afraid of feeling content.
Now how to be better to do better. How to go through this smarter? Again..its a marathon..pretty sure I’ll find out.
