On the Edge of Obsession
A thought that preoccupies our mind by definition is an "obsession". It's also defined as something that intrudes on our thoughts.
We can all identify examples of obsessive behavior that are not good for us like obsessive worrying or a preoccupation with germs.
But if we could extract the "driving behaviors" from this negative condition-maybe we could learn some things about being productive.
I thought about this and these are the top four behaviors I would pull out of "obsession" to help me accomplish something.
Drive-the energy to keep going
Determination-the commitment to not give up.
Clarity-the ability to identify what I need to reach my goal
Ego-the knowledge my goal is important and I can do it
