All throughout our lives, there are various milestones and checkpoints we’re told to aim for.
This is especially true when we’re young.
School, university, then get a job in the ‘real world’. When we’re a bit older it’s get married, buy a house, have two kids, get a dog.
Is that really all there is to it?
Or can we stop for a minute and think critically about what we’re doing and why we’re doing it.
Maybe for someone somewhere that is the answer to what they want out of life.
And if that’s the case, then great.
But make sure it is what you want. Don’t put yourself in a position where you’re looking back wishing you’d done everything differently. Don’t make grandiose plans about what some imaginary future version of yourself is going to be like.
Consider all the available options you have right now. Then work on deciding which really is worth doing. For your personal philosophy. For you.
