Start To Stop Doing What You Know To Be Wrong – Jordan Peterson
I’ve tripled my production lately, I’ve smashed out a lot of work in a short space of time
I have no choice, I need to make the most of my time otherwise nothing would get done…
But when I had too much time to spare, I got hardly anything done
I could do it tomorrow, or later on, if it was urgent
So instead of doing the work, I played the sims or Age of Empires
instead, I did this every night for months,
I knew what I should be doing and instead of doing it, I got my Sim to do it instead
Then one day, 12 hours later
I was like WTF are you doing man
And I uninstalled all my games.
I stopped doing what I knew was wrong and did the work instead.
We do this to ourselves all the time,
We do stuff and even right before we do them we tell the people we are with that we need to stop doing this,
Smokers are the worst for this, I work with 4 and every time the ‘spark up’ they say ‘I need to stop.’…
Then stop then.
Do what’s right
Stop doing whats wrong
