Drifting at sea - Why ambiguity kills

day 60

Do you know those moments where you have to do something, but you don't? You know the general direction of this something - finish a project - but something else is stopping you. It's a nagging feeling that won't go away, and before you know it you feel guilty about not doing. But still, you don't take any action. This goes on and on for a while, until the stress and the deadline becomes to high and you rush through everything leaving you with an empty and unsure feeling. Everyone has these moments, but it doesn't have to be this way. 


If you don't know where you going, you wont get there. Picture yourself on a boat in the pacific. You know you need to go west, but you are unsure what the destination is. You might have compass, but are lacking precise coordinates. How big is the chance of you ending up in a place you want? You might get there, but chances are slim. You keep drifting around for a while and miss your paradise island. You may not be on a boat in the pacific a lot, but this is exactly what you are doing. 


Ambiguity kills and clarity thrills. That sounds more cheesy that it should. The clearer you are on your destination, the easier it becomes to get there. Because the worst thing about not knowing where you are going, is that you might get there. Don't become lost at sea, but decide very clearly where you want to go. Let's be honest, what's more exciting that the image of a beautiful paradise island? Create your own island.
