I just realize this recently: I tend to do something if I think it is possible. If i don’t think it is possible, i’ll keep a backlog of it but i’ll probably won’t do it anytime soon. Just keeping it in the horizon – not sure when i’ll do it.
A very clear example for this happened in late 2017. I always want to go to Japan but I thought it was expensive and out of my reach. So i keep wanting to do it but I’m not sure when will I be able to do it. Then something happen: my little sister mentioned me cheap flights to East Asia via Bali. It lead me to this train of thought:
Hold on a second… if the price of the flight is this much, it might be possible to go to Japan afterall 🤔
This moment lead to further price and trip research. I didn’t end up using that cheap flight route, but i ended up visiting japan for a week with my wife.
All it need was a push to make me think that it is possible, then the snowball rolls from that.
This lead me to think: I guess for every stuff that I want to achieve, my homework is to make myself informed enough to think it is possible.
The same goes to my kids; As a parent, one of big homework of mine is to make them well informed enough to think and believe that their goals are possible.
