We all have a few opinions that don’t fit the mold.
Sometimes, it’s for the best to keep them to ourselves. But most of the time they’re fun to share because they’re what makes us unique.
I thought it would be fun to write down some of my opinions that would fall into the category of unpopular (but with the overall theme of goals and self-development, of course).
Here we go!
Sleep is underrated
These days, everyone seems to know how important sleep is – not a week goes by without some new scientific study confirming that in a new way.
Yet, aren’t we all just exhausted all the time? And we’re not really doing anything about it.
Food shouldn’t be so delicious all the time
Don’t take me wrong – I love food. But I’m not the kind of person who can have pizza in the fridge and chocolate in the cupboard for any length of time. Amazing food –> me eating too much.
We shouldn’t talk about our goals
It’s counter-productive. Telling other people about our goals boosts our ego and we become less likely to achieve them.
Books are better than movies
There are only a handful of movies that have touched me deeply. Yet I could name at least 20 books that I have read over and over again because they mean so much to me.
Being organized is actually pretty awesome
Disorganized people will try to make you think you’re boring. Don’t let them fool you.
They secretly wish they could also be that person that arrives on time, gets good grades and looks put together.
Life doesn’t have to be fun all the time
If we want to make some kind of change, it takes work and motivation. Starting is the hard part, but if you can accept that and get past it, it will be so worth it.
We give each other too many things
Material things, that is. What if we would instead start to really do things for each other, like, showing up, listening and helping?
Creativity isn’t that hard
You just have to understand the process behind it. It’s all about working hard, taking a break, and doing it all again. Believe me, you’ll start to get lots of new ideas with this method.
You can’t do mildly embarrassing stuff at parties anymore without some random acquaintance recording it without permission, then uploading it for anyone to see. It’s a shitty thing to do. People should be free to have fun at parties.
We don’t always need to work our asses off
Even a small change can make a big difference. It’s often the idea of how tough something is that scares us and prevents us from getting started.
Having a long Bucket List is silly
Just thinking about writing down everything I want to do in my life makes me confused. It would be a very long list, and it would need constant updating. Besides, it isn’t all about what you do, it’s who you do it with and how it feels.
Honestly, I could go on for much longer…
What are some of your unpopular opinions?
