Energy and Uncontrollable Factors

We have this illusion about control. We think we can change ourselves to make someone like us or behave differently towards us. We attempt to optimize headlines, web sites, blog post titles, and more to control how many people like what we write, share what we create, or buy what we're selling.

We fail to see that we are attempting to control uncontrollable forces in every area of our lives

We put insane amounts of energy into things we can't control. We "work on ourselves" to make people like us, hire us, look cooler, and be more chill. We polish our resumes to stand out in a crowd. We curate our Instagram feeds to give people the reality show version of our lives.

Imagine what we could accomplish, how much joy we could find in our lives if we took the energy we put into the multitude of uncontrollable factors and poured it into something else. What if we let go of everything we can't control. We'd have a lot less baggage and bullshit in our lives.
