Life Hack: Life happens when you’re busy making plans

Life Hack: Life happens when you’re busy making plans

It’s hard to know what you will like or prefer 5, 10, or 20 years from now because you are a living being in constant change and development. Sometimes it’s better to just know where you don’t want to go or where you don’t want to go again. Think about jobs, relationships, habits, and so on. Don’t stress if you don’t know exactly where you’re heading, especially if you’re young. Go out and experiment, and get an education on living. John Lennon’s famous quote rings true: “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” Maybe not knowing exactly where you’re heading is actually a virtue that takes the pressure off and allows you to be free to explore and open to serendipity. You don’t need to stick to the script; improvise. Spontaneity brings out the best in you and fills your journey with excitement.
