killing boredom, chasing dreams

/ / in / / Edit


i read something really insightful yesterday from Bo Sanchez' newsletter, it's about writing down our 100 dreams and working on accomplishing them every time we feel bored. i realized that there's really never a reason to get bored if we're always running after something. and if we take time to list down our dreams and aspirations in life, no matter how crazy they sound, every time we find ourselves not doing something productive, we can figure out small steps to reach them!

i find it a very effective way to avoid wasting time and eliminate boredom. even if we don't see ourselves realizing our far-fetched dreams right now, we must take small steps towards it, and eventually it'll dawn on us how close we have become. it's still better than doing something that doesn't lead to anything like scrolling over facebook or instagram. :P hehe

so what are my 100 dreams?

for now let me just write about 11? haha hey it doesn't matter how silly or impossible it sounds, as long as you can imagine yourself in it, write it down! aaaand, our small steps could be anything we can do in our free time to get a step closer to it. this isn't saying we should drop what we're doing, specially if we have a job, and chase our dreams full on. this is more of a stress reliever, doing things you like and is productive in your free time, so that a day never passes that your breaks are wasted on nothing.
