Dwayne Johnson, the actor and wrestler better known as the Rock, had a statement about fulfilling own dreams and goals. He said: Don’t work 8 hours a day for someone else’s company then go home and not work on your own goals. You’re not tired, you’re uninspired.
Before we jump to trying to explain this quote, i would like to mention, that it is better for individuals like the rock, not to give lessons in things they have not really experienced. The rock, might not have the financial pressure that forces him to work 8h/day to pay bills, vacations and the other necessities of modern life.
The average employee spends around 9-10h for work a day from waking up and preparing to go to work, to commuting. After work you are tired, you need just a bit of rest, and then need to have a meal (alone or with the family). If you have a family or friends, you might be required to spend a bit of time with them. If you exercise, watch series, have pets or kids, need to buy or prepare food, do laundry, wash dishes, need to have a clean room or house, want to socialize … all this need more time. If we assume you sleep 7h, and work takes 10h, that’s 17h out of 24h gone. You are left with 7h, which is a lot, but you will need to be extra focused and single to be able to use even 5h out of these 7h. The average employee have no idea how time flies.
Don’t work 8 hours a day for someone else’s company then go home and not work on your own goals. You’re not tired, you’re uninspired.– Dwayne Johnson
Don’t work 8 hours a day for someone else’s company then go home and not work on your own goals:
Working for someone else is exchanging your time for money. Sure, money is needed to pay the bills and put food on the table, but if you do not work on your own goals, then time will pass and your goals will stay none executed goals. If you are ready to put 8h working for someone else put few hours for yourself, for your goals.
You’re not tired, you’re uninspired.
The standard response, of why people don’t work on their goals after work, is “i am too tired”, as i mentioned above, the Rock does not get this, but it is a reality of life. Being inspired might not last long when faced will the challenges of everyday life.
I do agree with the Rock’s statement, except for the last part. People can be tired after work and fulfilling the different necessities of life. Hence uninspired it not the word to be used, i would eventually use unfocused.
