17 Nov Sending out an S.O.S.: Dealing with Shiny Object Syndrome [TJJS:EP324]
dealing with shiny object syndrome
In our society that craves INSTANT gratification for damn-near everything, no wonder we get tripped up on the continual chase for the next best thing. The next shiny object. Surely, *this new thing* will make me happy. But, wait… now I’m bored with *that thing*, but Ooooooo, what about *this new thing over here*… and then rinse, repeat. Jumping from shiny object to shiny object. Not following through with anything and on a hamster wheel of happiness chasing.
But, here’s the thing… we usually do this racket without even realizing it. We do it subconsciously. We’re usually just trying to feel better, avoid something uncomfortable, and forget our shitty situation already. But, if you keep up this chase, you never really accomplish anything of merit and your happiness is inevitably always postponed.
In this week’s show, I look at the multitude of ways this not-so-medical “syndrome” shows up in your world, how to stop yourself from making hasty, rash choices, and where to really, *truly* find your Happiness.
This pod explores:
- The number one phrase you likely repeat over and over if you’re a shiny object chaser (and why you need to stop!)
- How spontaneity and impulsivity (although sexy) can be destroying your follow-through (and happiness)
- How to figure out the real reason you jump from this shiny thing to that shiny thing
- How to figure out what you are really craving in your life that you aren’t getting, so you can stop wasting time and money
