Don’t Get Addicted to Accomplishments

“One last distraction: accomplishments. Some of you smarter folks reading this may have already realized the game of grades, corporate ladder climbing, and money. You may be an independent thinker that is focused on accomplishments. I applaud you. However, a warning, just like with the above distractions, be careful not to get addicted to accomplishments. You do not want to achieve things just for the sake of accomplishing them. It can be easy to think about getting that next notch on your belt, scaling that next mountain, or publishing that next book. You want to make sure that you are focusing on these things because they are meaningful and important. These are also powerful distractions that can keep you in denial.”
