Life's Four Categories
Everything that we do or attempt to do
in life can be put into one of the four categories.
1. Things that are hard to learn and hard to do-
For instance perhaps in school you found
math to be your worst subject. Today,
you find that you struggle with
accounting, tax returns, any financial
aspect of your life.
2. Things that are easy to learn but hard to do-
This would contain strenuous and physical labor such as
ditch digging with shovel in hand, or chopping wood with an axe.
3. Things that are hard to learn but easy to do-
This category would be learning to tie your shoe laces, drive a
car. At first it was hard to do, then it became so easy.
4. Things that are easy to learn and easy to do-
These consist of activities you do that seems to come easy. AND
while doing them, times seems to fly by. These are things you do
with your whole heart and soul. This category could be where your
talent lies, if doing these things gives you a sense of joy, happiness,
and fulfillment you want out of life.
"The fruits of a fulfilling life—happiness, confidence, enthusiasm,
purpose, and money—are mainly by-products of doing something
we enjoy, with excellence, rather than things we can seek directly.
" Dan Miller
