Have you ever felt trapped and do not know what to do? Or have you felt that you haven’t accomplished anything? If you have felt these moments, then you have also probably felt sad or frustrated. The worst part is that you might be getting a lot done and you are following a schedule; but no matter what you do, it just does not feel great and fulfilling. It is probably because your life is just filled with simple busywork. Life will be filled with busywork. Sure, busywork can be great and we often need it. Furthermore, even the most mundane busywork can help push you towards your goals. However, you need something that brings you joy and shakes up your life. Your busywork is making you too bored with your life right now, which means you need a change.
Find something new to spice up your life
When you are doing something that does not make you feel like you are pushing towards your goals, then you can easily feel stuck. Therefore, you need to change up your life. But, what are you going to do about it? From my perspective, you have two options:
- Determine what you can do to expedite your goals and how you are going to do it. Will attending a conference give you more insight to an idea? Will talking with a new mentor open a possible opportunity?
- Find what you enjoy or something that interest you, but do it more. Do you enjoy watching golf, but have you played golf? Well, now is the time to learn and play. Do you like cycling, but haven’t had the time lately? Make the time and do it.
From my perspective, you need one of these two options or both. You need something that will push you or bring you something new to measure your happiness. Life is more than just busywork. You also need to see results and for joy to be in your life. When you push for what you want and see better results, you will reinvigorate your life. When you develop a new hobby or fun activity, you will be more positive about your busywork, which means it will feel less mundane. If you choose one of these two options or both, your life will change.
Make your life full of joy
Do you want to constantly feel trapped or stuck? No, of course not. You want to feel alive and full of joy. You want to take things on and feel confident. Therefore, change things up in your life and find ways to expedite your goals or find something that brings you joy and happiness. When you do one of these two things, you will bring about more joy to your busywork.
