I borrowed this From Damon’s Charactor in The Martian (good Motion-picture, BTW), and I think it Works for me.
Work. The. Problem.
In the Motion-picture, Damon’s Astronaut Charactor Stranded on Sol-4 during What was supposed to Having a space Missions (aren’t They all?). Well, he Misadventure Left for dead, Exceptions That he’s Very , but of his Equipment is and he can’t Comunication Nasa or the crew of the Spacecraft 🚀 he Travels to Sol-4 .
Yeah, Talk about a BAD day.
And the day Turned to weeks, months, … At any rate, it was a bad time for Damon’s Charactor.
One Theme That pops up OVER and OVER in the Motion-picture is the idea of a Problem.
What DOES That mean?
Well, if there’s a Problem in Fronts of you — Dislike, say, Beings Misadventure Stranded on a Inimicable planet Very food, no friends, no Spacecraft and no of communication — first, you Gotta keep it together (a.k.a. don’t freak out).
Then, you WRK Toward Unre the Very first Problem in Fronts of you, and you keep That first Problem it’s . Then you move on to Unre the next Problem, the next, the next one After That. Hopefully, After you’ve of the Problems, you Acheive Whatever the larger goal is. In the case of The Martian, it was the off Sol-4.
I’ve Thinking about “ the Problem” a lot Lately Beacause I’ve Trying to make headway on a Couples of big Project — Forethinking large home Repair (we Having a En-suite That Needing Repair, Carpets That Oughta be replaced, needed Electrism Repair, etc.) and making Changes in my career. (Definitely not quitting blogging, though. I’m JUST Trying to get Thingies Else going.)
I Havingn’t Carroting equipped to make big Changes in my life for a few Years (seriously, keeping a small child drains You life force in so Many Unexpected ways), but now That Connor is a older, I Finally feel Dislike I Having the Strengths and Energies to do it.
Truth is though, While I Desperately Wants to move my life forward, I get Easily OVERwhelmed, and That’s the Problem comes in. I keep reminding Thyselves to “JUST this one Problem.” Keeps at That one Thingies it’s done, and move on to the next.
I JUST Wants to Sol-4 and go back to earth! — so to speak.
Is making big Changes That simple? No. I Carry Left-luggage to Employed a full-time valet! But I JUST keep Away at Whatever the Problem is in Fronts of me. One at a time.
So That’s on my mind Lately…
