Don’t get Lost

Greeting Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!

Focus has always been a man’s greatest strength and weakness. When we do something we want our focus to be on the task at hand. Whether we are trying to do life’s work or watching the news on TV, we try to focus and avoid getting distracted. 

Lately, I found myself writing much better at a much faster pace and a much larger volume. The quarantine has freed me up from the distractions of everyday life yet, it came at a cost. For three long weeks, I haven’t opened up the shop which was supposed to be my primary source of income. I haven’t gone to the bank to make my monthly transactions and tend to my financial investments. I haven’t gone to the barber for my monthly appointment. Funny, because before this, all I wanted was to have no distractions and now, I found myself looking for some.

Men had achieved great things out of a sheer will and laser-like focus. We men are capable of pointing our fullest attention to whatever we are currently doing. Yet, with that focus, comes our tendency to neglect other things. 

In my previous post, I talked about cheating your family of your fullest self. It is so easy for us to get caught up whether in the vast sea of duties and responsibilities or the pursuit of purpose. It is easy for us to get lost, we’re human after all. 

Duties and responsibilities are important, but no amount of it could ever equate to a purpose. We eat and breathe to live, and we work our asses off so that we could get to eat and breathe again tomorrow. Our purpose, however, is the direction that tomorrow is pointing to. It is the whole reason why we want to keep on living. 

The problem is that we get lost on the how and have neglected about the why that we’ve become drones of our own doing. The same thing goes when we get lost on the why and neglected the how. 

From what I have learned from life is that one should structure his life towards his purpose. One has to strike the balance between his duties and responsibilities, and his purpose. He must learn to live for tomorrow and do the best he could for today. He must learn to navigate and not get lost. 

For Courage and Freedom, and Focus!

  1. I have always believed there is always some inherent goodness behind everything. May be it will take a month, a year or several to finally come upon that Eureka moment! I guess this slowdown was necessary for other purposes to be fulfilled albeit at the sake of others. May be, just may be.

  3. Living isolated makes me think of a better tomorrow, far beyond my own agenda. I wonder how much we have learned during these challenging times. Hopefully, we won’t get lost in applying these lessons down the road. Take care!
