Being a Main Character, Letting Go, and Brainwashing Ignorance


Welcome to this week’s issue of 3 Minute Thursday.


Think about your favorite movie.

Now imagine you’ve never seen that movie and you buy tickets to go to see it for the first time.

You’ve been anxiously waiting for months.

The movie starts and the suspense is over.

Then the character sits on their couch and plays on their phone the entire movie.

That would be a pretty shitty movie right?

Go do some main character stuff.

Don’t let your life be a shitty movie.



Life becomes easier when you stop taking things personally.

But our brains are problem solving machines.

This means we constantly try to tie outcomes to data points, trying to rationalize and make sense of every experience we have.

But in reality, there’s not always a concrete reason or why.

Seeking answers that don’t exist is no way to life your life.

If you can’t be comfortable with the unknown, you’ll drive yourself crazy.

Be comfortable with letting go.



And with that, I’m going to leave you with a quote,

“What shall we do if we take ignorance to be knowledge?” — Neil Postman

Until next week,
