Must read. Reading this I kept nodding my head. Because I sure noticed how it applies to me. Maybe I started this blog after realizing I had enough and if I did not and kept going reaching for ever higher monetary goals I would, you know, hurt myself?
It’s the perpetual branching of identity that results from progress, as progress provides you with the confidence and ability to actualize greater things (resulting in further progress). The cyclical nature of this process is what makes it so difficult to stop, and is what prevents us from ever settling on what Enough means.
Enough is elusive because when you reach it, you’re no longer the person that once desired it.
Despite what spiritual gurus might tell you, ambition is critical to the development of a healthy mind. Without it, you will never know what challenges you’re capable of facing, and how you can tap into the best of yourself to solve them accordingly. Ambition is important because it provides a sense of purpose, which is one of the keys to giving life its meaning. Greed, on the other hand, is different.
It’s rather difficult to know where this point is, as the boundary between ambition and greed can be blurry. But for the most part, you’ve entered the domain of greed when you no longer pursue an endeavor because you’re curious about it. It’s when the coldness of utility replaces the warmth of curiosity. Ambition morphs into greed when you stop listening to your inner compass, and start paying attention to what your actions may do for external things like your reputation. Enough is what remains when you remove these desires for approval or praise. It’s when you conduct an honest audit of your needs, and understand what has been conditioned into you, and what is true to who you are.
This is the most important thing to internalize. You must self-adjust your definition of enough, instead of having it forced upon you. Wisdom is in self-correction, while misery is in coerced correction. Identity change is best manifested through small, intentioned steps, and not through a massive, surprising event.
I am blown away by what this talented lady has managed to accomplish online! Very educational article about doing business online these days.
Kat Norton is a Microsoft Excel influencer. She has over a million followers on TikTok and Instagram, where she goes by the name Miss Excel, and she’s leveraged that into a software training business that is now generating up to six figures of revenue a day. That’s six figures a day. And she’s only been doing this since June 2020.
Kat is a one-woman operation, with no staff or management layer. She uses her iPhone and consumer software to make her videos, and I’ve got to say, she has one of the healthiest relationships with the social platforms of maybe any creator I’ve ever talked to: she thinks of them purely as marketing channels for the video courses she sells elsewhere. That’s a big flip from the traditional creator business model, which is usually aimed at monetizing the platforms directly. Kat’s just not doing that.
This blog is a one-man operation and is now losing money so…I read the first article about having Enough to feel better about myself lol.
This has been a hell of a surprising virus so never say never. But…No matter how much we’d like to eradicate SARS-CoV-2, it may be better to settle for other forms of control.
Anyway, amid the latest Omicron wave, we have a long way to go to even start thinking about such an eventuality. A pipe dream in my unofficial amateur epidemiologist opinion that many scientists agree with! 🙂
Every year during the holidays I publish blog posts with annual best of lists. I have started accumulating them and will start posting them in about a few weeks from now. 10 links per blog post as usual. So, come back here often and click on my ads! Oh wait, I have no ads to hurt your beautiful eyes.
I am making an exception and posting this one here because it belongs in a Best of Web post. This guy has been doing these posts annually and I love them. Talk about educational which is the first item listed in my blog’s mission!
I picked a few favorites to excerpt:
The world’s second most popular electric car (after the Tesla Model 3) is the Wuling HongGuang Mini, which costs $5,000 and outsells vehicles from Renault, Hyundai, VW and Nissan
The median estimated body-mass index of cabinet ministers is highly correlated with conventional measures of corruption.
Clean rooms used to make semiconductors have to be 1,000x cleaner than a surgical operating theatre, because a single transistor is now much smaller than a virus.
A community of 100 Zimbabweans have been clearing mines in the Falkland Islands for the last decade.
The entire global cosmetic Botox industry is supported by an annual production of just a few milligrams of botulism toxin. Pure toxin would cost ~$100 trillion per kilogram.
This site posts close up shots of eyes. And you won’t believe your eyes how they look, WOW!
And I leave you with this…
