With what I’m trying to achieve with A Bunch Of Deckheads my passion to learn has intensified. One of my many personal mandates is to become a learning machine, which I appreciate isn’t always sustainable. Frankly, it’s fucking exhausting. Slight digression but I had to ask myself given my love for words why do I have a proclivity to use profanity? I concluded like cash, it just gets the job done better.
Passion is a multiplier. If you’re fortunate enough to find what your passion is, especially from a young age it can change the context of your life. However, I don’t necessarily believe that you should be resigned to serendipity by way of it’s realisation. It should be relentlessly pursued while in the interim invested in what you do, project passion into everything you do.
I totally understand the rationale behind constructs, they give us a framework from which we understand the world. I'm arguing that we create our own, providing it's not to the detriment of others of course, our constructs can reorientate the trajectory of our lives. My passion for learning will afford me incredible upside on a personal and professional front, providing I remain consistent. This will be predicated by my psychology, not some Hustle Pornstar rhetoric I worked twenty four hours straight bullshit. Besides, to that point if you're happy doing so there's no need to pontificate about it. The questions I'm concerned with are how do I navigate the terrain of emotional labour, the accompanying fear, will it work and how will the work be received? It’s an hypothesis I intend to personally substantiate.
The tools for learning are abundant. It's the desire to learn that's scarce.
