Let The Small Bad Things Happen


You went on a vacation with your family for the first time in the past 3 years.

You are enjoying your time on the beach, but because of the force of habit, you thought why not check my emails once.

You opened the inbox, only to find that the website you created for a client has crashed.

Now, you are on the beach, you don’t have your laptop with you.

You practically cannot do anything to fix the issues till the next few hours.

How would it feel like?

It will take away your attention, but what good that attention be if you can’t do any productive work with it.

You went on the vacation for the first time in the last few years, and now you are not even able to enjoy it properly.

That seriously is the worst condition to be in.

Why do we let that happen to us?

We think that if we won’t check our phones for few days, a lot of problems will come, and we just don’t want to afford it.

Well, learn to afford it!

Few bad things will keep happening here and there, but if you really want to enjoy your life, you have to let them happen and put on blinders towards them.

What’s the point of keep working and earning huge money if you don’t even get to spend some quality time with yourself and your family?

When you are not working, you are not working!

Don’t pick up that call, don’t check those emails, don’t open social media.

Either do the work or do something else, no in-betweens!

Next time when you want to spend some quality time with yourself, with your family, with your hobbies, don’t let the interruptions come in between.

And you will see how your productivity will increase drastically!

When you do get time to check those small problems, you will be in a better mental state to fix them up!

Just make that as your habit and see your life getting more peaceful 😉

[This blog is inspired by Tim Ferriss’s best-selling book, The 4-Hour Work Week. I was reading it today, and I really loved the perspective about letting the bad things happen, that I wanted to share with you all. Hope it was helpful!]

That’s it for today.
