So this thing has been happening, where I want to do all the things. Absolutely all of them. I want to cook and bake all day, I was to draw comics and write to you, I want to dance with people (and with noone at all, in my lounge, secretly). I want a promotion but I want to start my own business. I want to travel again but I want to stay right where I am. I want to buy a house.
I dreamt of buying a house last night actually. Wishful thinking. It’s better than my dreams on Saturday of working and working and working in the office. It’s terrifying when work starts infiltrating dream land..especially on the weekend. I felt really threatened. Work is meant to be something that is part of my life only when I am actively partaking in it. At all other times it is a thing to be ignored.
Anyway, the thing is, I’m torn. I’ve heard and read a lot of things about becoming an expert at something. How it takes approximately 10,000 hours of work at that something, on average. That doesn’t really lend itself to being an expert at all the things which is what I’m wanting. I’ll settle for just drawing, dancing and cooking. But that’s 30,000 hours right there. That works out to be 3.42 years if I was doing that stuff 24 hours a day. Im certainly not. I would say in a week I get to put in maybe 20 hours across all those tasks. Using that figure it’ll take me (30000/20) 15000 weeks. So 15000/52 = 288 years. Im not sure I have that time.. Even if we knock off a year or two for holidays I’m still way off expertness at all the things. So really should I specialise is the next question, and no is the answer. No. Why? Because I don’t want to. So there >.<
I’ll be happier with the variety of doing all the things averagely. Did I mention I’m thinking of taking up furniture making?
Also: this. It was posted on facebook a few days ago, but if you don’t Like W!R on facebook then you would have missed out. Better go Like W!R on facebook so you don’t miss out on ALL THE THINGS.
