It’s what makes us feel alive. It’s the reason for our happiness. Progression is of vital importance to the well being of a human being.
I have a theory that this is what makes such things like Pokemon Go and other games so successful. The developers have created a way for users to experience the progression that they don’t get as much in their lives. In my life, these sorts of “distracted” progression has come in the form of relationships, lots of video games, jobs that I did not like… the list goes on and on.
I’m not saying that these distracted progressions are necessarily bad. I think that often times they are a necessity in your quest to finding your true passions. It is a foolproof plan in the sense that if you lose yourself in these distracted progressions- wherein you spend all your time on that one thing, it will have evolved from the state of distracted progression to an obsessive passion (a good thing).
In this state of obsessive passion breeds men like Elon Musk and the supercompany known as Tesla Motors.
The only real challenge is realizing quickly whether whatever it is that you are doing has the potential to turn into a passion or a distraction. These distractions can span years of your time. It isn’t a waste of time if it helps you find your passion, but it is not the most efficient use of time.
There is a sense of urgency in finding your passions.
