It seems like everywhere I look online lately someone has a new “list” to motivate me to do something. “Top ten ways to get more done”, “5 things successful people don’t do”, “10 habits for a better marriage”, “3 things you must do now to have the career you deserve”. Honestly, it’s starting to drive me a little nuts. Not only do I not click on them anymore, it is becoming frustrating to me. You don’t need a list of recommendations. There is nothing in most of those lists that most of us don’t know about the topic. Frankly, if you look at some of those lists and have genuinely never thought that showing up on time to work will help you, or paying attention to what your spouse is saying will improve your relationship, I’m scared for all of us. Psychology Today online lately seems to be entirely made up of articles of these lists, and it’s a little rude. There saying we do not have the ability anymore to sit for a few minutes and read an interesting article, life has become about bullet points.
