I like to think that I'm more of a subconscious learner more than an intentional one. This is because, on the surface, I hate struggling. sometimes I give up when I see or imagine the price I have to pay to learn something that might truly be beneficial to me.
While I've hated and chastised myself for this unruly attitude, what I've come to realize is most times when I seem too lazy to learn, the main reason is only that I do not want to set target, I hate learning under pressure, so I mostly reject the prospect of learning under a certain timeframe but choose to learn at my pace without placing any expectations of achievement or result.
The pressure that comes with intense learning can make the process futile
However, when I was younger, I never set any target for myself, the goal was to survive and be better than that the day before. When the standard of living got better and savings improved maybe in the course of two years or more and provided I wasn't in debt and not paying bills for any terminal disease.
Inasmuch as I do not set targets or goals, I'm the kind of person who feels that I just need to strive with everything inside of me, while inadvertently achieving some of the goals some people would set a timeframe for. Although two things'll happen: without pressure, I might relapse, most people do better under pressure, and while people who perform poorly under pressure might hate themselves.
I tend to believe that people who hate pressure have their strong suit.
Back in the day, I wasn't a big saver, but I wasn't a huge spender as well. I mostly choose consistency, gathering small portions for a long period. I know that time is of the essence, a lot of people are thrilled by accomplishing big things in a small timeframe, hitting huge milestones by all means, the advantage of this is that people who set small timeframes get to save their time, but sticking to my modus operandi doesn't mean my strategy is the best in the world.
In fact, it might even make me look stupid, but one thing I've discovered is that people who do not make plans to suit their anatomies often ends up with alien accomplishment, which might not even be synchronized with who they are.
The illusion of disinterest
For example, I didn't jump on splinterlands when it was still steemmonsters, the main reason for this is that I believe I wasn't a gamer, I believed this for 3 years, but down the line, and I realized that this was a game I could invest time and a little cash and let it expand for five years or more.
I decided not to pressure myself to learn, I figured that I could learn at my own pace, but then after 6 to 7 months of playing, I discovered that I had even learned at an unimaginable pace, more than I would if I was stubbornly intentional about it.
The Splinterlands' Narrative
Splinterlands is my type of thing, even though I didn't and still do not have all the money to spend, being about to buy the little I can at intervals is my thing. I know that the game has come under scrutiny of late, so many questionable decisions, and the FUD of not reaching those unimaginable heights again, these irregularities often trigger uncertainties and prevent people from being long-term, even though the game is decent, the prospect might not be life-changing, but an opportunity to compound and expand
I've come to realize that I'm the long-term type of builder, the pressure to make money doesn't generate more orgasm than the delight of constantly growing no matter the speed
The endgame for this might be shitty, and the strategy might be crude
but the absence of luck is the only element that might negate the inevitability of success in long-term building. Sometimes, we position ourselves to live in the moment, while this isn't bad, we often question these tactics when we miss out big time.
The Prospects Of Effort & Reward
Sometimes we measure the prospective effort we need to put in with the possibility of gains we might get and the idea that effort isn't worth the time is why we miss out, but at the same time, because the life of finance and accumulation doesn't guarantee the endgame of financial freedom, some people would choose the "hand-to-mouth" of constantly scrapping for gains, because building might just be overrated and not worth it.
I've lived a life where I didn't need too much to make me happy, so why change the level of frequency with a little change in financial capacity? A lot of people are envious of long-term building, but they've set themselves up to be short-termed and unstable.
I know that Crypto is the direct definition of volatility, but this doesn't mean that this volatility should coruscate into our lives and dictate how we should live
even builders need the element of luck because we still need to admit that time and constant effort guarantees nothing, especially in the crypto space, in fact, "guarantee" is not a word I like to flaunt around.
I like to think that we often live at the mercy of people with life's ultimate decision, but then choosing to build puts one in a far better position. While I'm still a dead fish in the splinterlands' hierarchy, the craze of growing quickly and fast never gets to me, because eventually, the stats will change and the figures will pile with time.
