Advice If You've Got The "Rage to Master" Personality Trait

Got a long email from a reader with some great questions - he's a very impressive dude, but he has a hard time sticking with something for more than 1.5 to 3 years. If you have this trait as well, you might want to pay close attention to this post

And I have a real problem "falling in line" with the rest of society in a stable, consistent and "normal" life. I just feel like it's not me.

Yup, I know exactly how you feel. I've been in similar places. So have a lot of my friends. Some thoughts -

What I see as a recurring theme in my jump from job to job and industry to industry is my utter lack of real fulfillment. Don't get me wrong, I do have a temporary sense of fulfillment and meaning with the careers I have pursued, they just don't seem to last. Once I have focus on what it is that I want to do I am relentless in achieving it. For instance, after 3 years in the --- industry I have acquired the knowledge that many people don't achieve until 10, 12 or even 15 years in the industry. However, that life-cycle tends to be around 18-months, where I then become unfulfilled by the rate of learning and progress I am making. This ultimately leads to erratic behavior within the succeeding months and a feeling that I need to drop what I'm doing and move onto something else - whether that be a new job or a new career altogether.

Google the term "rage to master" - click around, read some summaries, and then check out a couple academic papers. It will be very worth your time.

Most better days.

On The Life Of An Ordinary Teenager

In order to be happy, you need to be strong. When people are mean to you or they simply on't like you at all, you only need to remember the good things about life and those who really care about you. Emiline was not very happy in the fact that i got over them and i had moved on. She doesn't like to see me happy because she doesn't approve of my existing. When things get tough and you think that you have no friends and every break of the day at school is extremely long, there are people that you will find who actually like your presence.

In P.E, we had different options. Soccer, basketball, badminton or hockey off-ice. I liked soccer i was going to play soccer but soccer was organized with the bigger kids and i didn't feel like being judged from people who think i'm immature because it's my first year in high school. Badminton sucks because we've been playing it for a couple months now and basketball.... The girls were playing. I wasn't escaping my problem just choosing not to deal with it at the present moment. My brother plays hockey and he's a defense. So, i thought i could kick some hockey ass. I chose hockey off-ice and had the time of my life. My childhood friend, Isabella, invited me to be with her other two friends because we were playing with another class. I was the only girl in my class who had the guts to play hockey with the boys. I definitely have defense in my blood because i never let the puck get in the goal. I was mostly playing against my ex, Alexander, and he is a very competitive guy but he is the first guy who loved me like crazy.

I sadly messed up my chances with him but believe it or not, i'm starting to get emotions for him again. He loved me so much to the point of being so nervous, he couldn't eat. He told me himself, that's how i know. But there's this other guy, Finn. He is really nice with me and he's a very sweet guy. I'm officially stuck in a love triangle.
