Some Thoughts On Persistence
thought on persistence and feeling good: Sometimes persistence can be a
bad thing. For example, I'll start playing an online game and it feels
good, so I play it more. At some point it stops being fun and yet I keep
playing it. Because I have a value system that says persistence pays
off and you shouldn't quit until you win or are done or whatever. I tend
to keep hitting the flippers long after the
thrill is gone. That applies to many things...lovers, crafts, food, careers. I
need to learn to let go of things quicker. To maybe once an hour ask
myself, 'Does this still feel good? If not, what can I do now that will
make me happy?' So on that note, I'm going outside to knit, but only as
long as it makes me happy.
