Don't read this

Why did you open this essay? Do you even have a reason? Did you even think about it? I bet the answer is no. And that, my friend, is a problem.

Don’t get me wrong, I personally think it’s awesome you’re here. Someone is actually taking minutes of their precious time to read something I’ve writing. That’s amazing. Thanks!

But I’m just a random guy on the internet and there’s no reason why you should care about my feelings. I’m neither particularly smart nor entertaining. So why are you here if you could instead create something or at least learn from someone worth learning from?

I know it’s uncomfortable but let’s pause for a moment and think about it. How and why did you end up here?

Questions like this are magical because they force you to break your personal frame for a moment.

Usually I’m shocked what I see during these elusive moments of clarity where I’m observing myself objectively.

There are so many things I deeply care about, so many goals I want to achieve in my limited time on planet earth. And here I am wasting another hour reading some random guy’s braindump. It’s heart breaking.

Yes I’m writing this as a reminder for myself. Instead of finishing this essay, I just checked Twitter and Reddit. See I’m definetly not who you should learn from.

Now close this tab and do something that actually matters.
