Pleasure Principle

When I person cannot find deep meaning they distract themselves with pleasure

Victor Frankl

Read that again and sit with it.

Pleasure is an addictive loop. Most people hear addictive behavior and think drugs, alcohol etc. But today it can be your phone, processed food or porn.

Instead of writing out your goals for 2021 that might not see the light of day again, decide to make a small change.

Learn to be alone and bored.

When you feel that twitch to distract yourself push in on that feeling. What are you distracting yourself from?

Write it down. Journal about it. Think about it.
