Doodle Card #100 – Get What You Need Even If It’s Not Fun


Get what you need, even if it’s not fun.


People say, “English is fun”. But this was never the case for me.

When I was a kid, I didn’t like studying English. But I did it anyway and got a perfect score on an exam. Because I had to. When I went to the United States, learning English was a real pain in the neck for me. But I worked on it and became good enough to communicate. Because I had to.

When we learn a new skill, the skill itself does not necessarily have to be fun. Public speaking. Chopping something with a knife. Adobe Photoshop. Plumbing.

We learn a skill when we need to use it and get the outcome we want. And we successfully acquire a skill if we want it so badly and keep learning no matter what happens. It doesn’t matter if it’s fun or not.
