Is there any point of working hard for something which all of them are doing?
If yes, good. Keep doing it. And don’t complain.
What if you say no?
I genuinely don’t believe in doing what others are doing. And I know it is not easy to do. If it were, then there would be no sacrifice. I was watching Transformers: The Last Knight a couple days ago and there was a saying which goes like this.
It has been said throughout the ages, that there can be no victory, without sacrifice.
Actually, you must have found this in other parts also. Fine. So, he talked about the sacrifice which is really true. No sacrifice, no victory. But is it worth sacrificing something for what others are doing?
Humans tend to copy each other. And this has been happening for the ages, which has become a sort of natural. We go to school and are taught to do exactly same what other students are doing. Even if you try to do something different, they make you do exactly the same what that student is doing who is in the front of the line (‘The brightest student of the class’).
Let’s come to the parenting section. Get good grades and you’ll be ahead of the neighbor’s kid. Ha. I’ve never got this concept. And I would never. I don’t want to speak more about it because I don’t want. But if you watch Formula 1, the scene is totally different. Those teams, they focus on their own crafts. They don’t find ways to beat their rivals. They find ways to make their F1 cars better everytime. Then, is it too difficult to adapt their culture?
I just want to see people who approach a game in a totally different way. Because when you do this, you will find the ways which don’t work. I call them “The Boring Ways”. After a number of trials, you will find a way which is way different from others. That is “The Golden Way”.
So, whatever you are trying to do, make sure you will do it in a different way. A way which you can think of. Try different things all the time. Don’t try to add a tablespoon of salt in your coffee. Trust me, it’s horrible which I accidentally did and experienced the sheer and rich taste of the coffee.
Always be the hungry wolf. And never live inside the room. Go out and see things which can’t be seen from the room.
Live well, humans.
