In life, there are different life styles that we can choose from. Everybody has his own preferences and taste in this life. There are of course bad and good lifestyles that we choose to base our life on which leads to bad or good outcomes as we progress through life. But how can a person define his true calling or his true lifestyle that will lead to a happy and enjoyable life? throughout my life I’ve been struggling to find out what is my lifestyle that I really want to have or what is my favorite hobby that I really like and maintain through my life!. I know that this may sound a bit unreasonable or dramatic but it’s true. I love all kinds of sports and I am almost good at all of them, from football and handball (which I played professionally for a period of time) to Karate (I obtained the black belt and played for the national team). well, I do like sports and I have a natural instinct in learning the sport quickly and play it effectively as if I’ve been playing it my whole life. However, there was always something that comes along and disrupt me from being professional in a kind of sport and that’s why I couldn’t stick to one sport. These obstacles were actually life changing decisions that would have much positive effect on my life than being a professional sportsman, such as studying to get the engineering degree, being with my family, maintaining my career…etc. Nonetheless, as I wanted to talk about lifestyle, I am trying to maintain a professional successful career as well as a healthy life style. That’s why I hit the gym about 4 days a week and try to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Yet, trying to be in good physique and always exercise doesn’t allow me to have much time left in my day. I love video gaming and I wish I could have extra hours during my day to play some video games. The reason why I say this is that if I try to maintain my exercising and then start playing video games, that would be unfair for my family as I have to spend some time with them as I am away for almost half of the day. You would say maybe you should select a day probably in the weekend where you satisfy the lust for playing video games. Well, I’ve tried that however, on that particular day, something happens that is more important and needs to be taken care of.
If I only have these interests in my life as I’ve stated above, probably something can be arranged to organize it and make the best outcome out of it. Nevertheless, I am a huge addict of offroad driving, road trips, car racing, adventures, camping, fishing, scuba diving, reading, and so much more. On top of that, I have major business plans that I would like to pursue in my life. Furthermore, I have came up with a plan with goals and timeline to achieve these goals that I am trying my best to following in my life. If I would start writing about the interests that I have or the goals that I have set in my life, I would write a whole book (now that I mentioned it, I might as well add that to my goals list :P). Adding to that, I have started writing a book about the manufacturing industry in UAE, yet, once I have finished the introduction, I realized that it way harder job that I have expected it to be in terms of time needed and references to be added.
So what would someone do to organize his life and enjoy the lifestyle that he wants? basically prioritizing your interests and lifestyles that you would like to have can become handy in paving the path or enjoying your life. If you would like to have your own business and earning money, that would mean that would have to sacrifice the adventurous or athletic life and vice versa. Some people would be able to juggle between them and have a little bit of all, which is difficult yet possible. If you can achieve that level, you would definitely be living the good life :).
I might have started writing this article to justify to my self why I cant juggle between all the interests that I have in my life, but I know that in order for someone to solve a problem, he first must admit there is a problem. Prioritizing my interests is the only strategy that I am currently following to enjoy my life and never have to worry about things I don’t really need in my life. Actually, the point of writing this article was incentivised the readers to write down all their interests and prioritize them. I know I am not the only one in the world to have such a dilemma and I believe if you are following the same tactic, you’ll indeed enjoy you life.
However, No matter how much you try to organize your life, there will always be obstacles and problems that were not taken into consideration that happens and changes all your plans. Nonetheless, the way you tackle these problems and obstacles to return back to your routine or lifestyle is considered a part of wisdom and life experience that will mold you into a better person with time.
