Ya know, we're constantly bombarded with these messages to "be the best" at what you do, to strive for the top, to make an impact. It's as if you don't achieve the greatest or become the most talented, then you aren't even worthy as a person.You're just wasting your time.
Your entire goal in whatever sort of hobby should be to get faster, better, stronger...or so we're told.
We're so achievement-oriented as a society it's insane. It's like you can't even just appreciate doing the thing. You have to try to actually make something out of it.
Want to play guitar? Better learn to shred like Slash Want to play golf? Better get a hole in one Want to paint? Better be DiVinci or you suck bro. GTFO Want to play video games? Get gud, noob or unistall the game.
Man, whatever happened to actually embracing Leisure?
Even in our free time, it's like we're not even actually enjoying it. Instead, we're just making more goals, after our day of WORKING towards goals is complete.
We don't take a break. We're constantly trying to achieve...something. We don't give ourselves enough Leisure.
Look, enjoy the thing you're doing. Have fun.
Fun, yeah, remember that thing?
When was the last time you did something for fun?
Not to try and earn something. Not to try and impress anybody. Just to have fun.
Was it recent? Does it happen very often?
A true Procrastin8r embraces leisure -- does things without regard to the future benefits an activity can provide, and just lives in the moment, doing the thing, simply to enjoy it.
In the coming weeks, starting today, we're headed for a deep dive into the L.A.Z.Y. Mindset and what each module in the podcast.
Although I covered sort of the thumbnail version in the e-book you got yourself a bit ago, after subscribing to this newsletter, we're now gonna flesh out each module in the way it deserves to be. One. Step. At a time.
You already know what Leisure is and why it's important, and I hope now I can help you understand it on a deeper level, so that you yourself can put the PRO in procrastinator.
