Before you attempt to solve a problem , instead of asking, “How can I solve this?”, ask yourself: Should I be tackling this?
We live in a society that values hard work, but does the fact that something is difficult to master mean that it’s worth doing?
It’s true that things worth achieving are hard, but that doesn’t mean difficult goals are worth achieving. And also I wonder, why do we resist taking the easier route and make things harder on ourselves?
Since an early age, we’re led to believe that if each person puts in the same amount of work, each person will get the same level of results. But things aren’t so black-and-white in the real world.
If you’ve applied for a competitive position, you know that getting hired can be incredibly difficult, or it can be very easy. More often than not, getting a position depends on who you know. Many people resist this idea. Why?
We think it is not fair, we want to do it on our own…Maybe not that smart after all. Maybe it is only your internal beliefs holding you back?
Have you ever felt motivated to complete a challenge that someone presented to you? When you see a problem, you want to tackle it even if it’s not worth dealing with at all.
Often, we waste our time on something that’s unimportant. Just because there’s a problem doesn’t mean it needs solving.
It’s true that things worth achieving are hard, but that doesn’t mean difficult goals are worth achieving. So think before you start
solving that problem and you will hopefully spend your time where it’s worth the most.
