Drudgery Can Motivate
Sometimes, personal development “stuff” can feel silly. It would be nice if everyone could do what they loved doing for a living, but then who would take our money at the gas station? There will always be menial jobs that need to be done.
On the other hand, when I read about people who have made major changes in what they do for work, it does begin to feel possible. Maybe not likely, but at least possible. Either way, it’s more fun to try than not.
Even if I never end up writing for a living, through trying, I’ve met people I otherwise wouldn’t have, learned about things I didn’t know existed and expanded my thinking. Whenever that brick wall looms in front of me, those things are comforting.
