2. Teach Yourself the Value of Setting Goals
Life is not a swinging Disney sing-along. It is boring and cruel. It is full of mind-numbing monotony and a lot of pointlessness. The weight of just how meaningless life really is will eventually start to wear you down. One way to fight it is to learn the “value” of setting goals and then achieving them. Even small goals feel like achievements if you hit them. The effect is magical and life affirming. The harder the goal, then the bigger the feeling of achievement when you get there, but first you need to get into the habit of achieving your goals--which is why you have to start small so you may learn the value of goal setting and winning.
