“If you live for Vacations and Weekends, Your Shit is broken” – Gary Vaynerchuk.
I love this one, this is motivation but then there is truth in action.
Many of us do look for weekends and vacations for different reasons.
One of it is to escape the daily grind coming from what we call our day jobs, lets call them the ones ‘Dragging Through Life’
Other is to rejuvenate and recreate ourselves for a better tomorrow, lets call them the ones ‘Thriving Through Life’.
Dragging Through Life:
Looking forward to weekends to sleep, binge watch TV, eat what is tempting (not necessarily healthy) ,
and curse going to work when the weekend is about to end.
They DON’T have an AGENDA.
Thriving Through Life:
Looking forward to weekends so as to connect with nature, family and their passion.
They work on themselves, they network and they give back for a cause they believe in.
They DO have an AGENDA.
Looking forward to a weekend is what helps many people sail through an otherwise boring and unsatisfying week.
While this is easy, it is temporary.
The weekend vibe just works for a weekend and not a second more.
Just dragging through to live for the weekend vibe robs you of two things – the Efficiency for the coming WEEK and an opportunity to discover ‘Super LIFE’.
Coming straight to the core!
