I don't know what I'm doing

We have all been there. "I don't know what I'm doing." You wake up every day, follow your daily routine, feel numb all day, and try hard to sleep at night. All the while, you think, "what am I doing?"

Is this common? Of course, it is. You cannot have a manual in your hand telling what comes first in your life and when your problem disappears. So Hang On!

To your feeling, the following tips might help, have a look.

Stop comparing

A person in his early 20's figured what he is good at, while a successful businesswoman started in her 40's. The timeline doesn't work the same for all. Comparing yourself to other's achievements is going to make your situation worse.

Talk, Talk

I believe communication helps like no other. When you communicate, you will know where you're at, what you should do. Your thoughts are clear when you put your heart out.

They say you should do something while your inner self is shouting not to do it. There you go, you got what you want.

"I don't know what I'm doing" will eventually turn into "I know what I should do."

Keep working, don't stay idle

You don't compare, you communicate, but still, nothing strikes. Nothing feels like the right path. "I don't know what I'm doing" is haunting you.

All you need is to keep doing your job, studies, or whatever you've been doing. You will get your time to figure things out. Time will answer.

Get out of your comfort zone

You know what you're supposed to follow but couldn't do it, because you find your present job safe and secure. This feeling is stopping you from taking the risk in your life.

I swear, if you start feeling I'm safe in here and don't need to make any effort, that is where you're going wrong. Come out of it to know what you're capable of achieving. Efforts keep you alive. A place where there is no effort or challenge will make you numb.

(P.S. "I don't know what I'm doing" hit me as I write this blog. Taking the risk publishing it.)

Nothing will start working as you wish unless and until you start working for it.
