One of the worst feelings in the world is knowing that you really don’t know what the hell you want.
For over a year I’ve embarked on this journey of creating videos talking about things I’m pretty passionate about.
In that timespan I’ve created a video course, built a business doing one on one coaching, and have considered a zillion things.
Every time I think to myself “this is what I want” I end up getting tired of something.
At first I felt I wanted to travel the world giving talks to big crowds.
And then I realized, “what a pain in the ass.” I don’t feel like traveling all the time. And sometimes I just don’t like dealing with people.
When I started doing the one on one coaching I was totally pumped.
And now I realize I’m not always totally pumped.
But when I look back at all this I realize it’s just part of who I am and who we are.
Other than my website business which has gone on for 15 years now, there aren’t too many highly consistent things I “like.”
I can either embrace that or drive myself absolutely insane and punish myself for not having a clear direction.
I used to do the latter. And the latter was so unbelievably destructive to my life.
If I find my interest waning? So what? Let it wane.
Maybe I don’t want to travel a ton. Maybe I don’t feel like dealing with people.
Maybe I would ideally just enjoy creating videos and content and just keep doing that.
Seriously, I haven’t a clue. I just know that it’s completely OK to try for a while, not like it, and taper it down.
The key is actually trying it. The key is actually giving it a shot.
Without that I’m nothing and I won’t have any kind of direction whatsoever.
