Controversial opinion: If you’ve never explored your interests, you’ll probably find yourself bored on the couch right now.
If you have, you end up looking “productive” to the outside world. But you weren’t trying to be productive. You ended up productive by LETTING yourself fully explore and fully lose yourself in your passions.
The problem is we don’t let ourselves play. We make it a chore. We demand output of ourselves constantly. Society measures productivity in terms of output.
What most fail to realize is that output isn’t possible without input.
Being productive doesn’t have to mean starting a business or writing a book or whatever. You can be just as productive reading, learning, reflecting, and taking the time to push all the noise and pressure from everyday life out and go inside.
Let your innocence out. Do what you did when you were 5 years old, before media, school, society, and social bullshit clouded your head. By exploring what interests you, you’ll become an interesting human. Entertain yourself.
