A person should focus on himself, not others and how fast they had reached their goals. Each person should have his own speed. In my opinion, a person should always try to improve himself in all aspects of his life.
I think if a person is trying to improve himself, he will not be curious about other people’s life, gossip or anything that does not adds good, ideas in his life. From few days I felt I am a sort of a bad person. I spend most of my day doing short term happiness things such as playing games on my mobile even when I need to do other things such as exercising.
A few days ago I thought of an idea that really helped me, in my opinion.
The thought is:
If I will do anything that will take time in my day ( hours) I ask my self two questions: Will it improve my life in any way? Am I enjoying it?
If the answer is yes to the first question that I continue doing it even if I am not enjoying doing that task but I will most likely like the results.
If the answer is no to the second question and I won’t benefit from that thing I am doing, in the future then I stop doing it and go do another thing that will benefit me in my future. I found those two questions helped me to be more productive and healthier too.
