Are you Anomic or are you Autonomous?

Optimal Rating

Extreme Alt.

When it comes to living, to really living, people fall into two basic camps: Anomic or Autonomous.
THE ANOMIC:
– Always “too busy” with life/work/university/family/pets/Netflix/whatever
– Always nitpicking at details
– Never follows through on something they said they would do
– Makes excuses for why something cannot be done, rather than seeking solutions
– Generally lingers around, “chatting productively”
– Is super excited when others do work, yet never produce any themselves
– Talk the talk but don’t walk the walk
– Keyboard warriors, not real life changers
– Live by ever changing ‘hip’ values not the deep conviction of life principles

THE AUTONOMOUS:
– Has a grand vision and is demonstrably working towards it
– Has a proven track record of acting instead of talking
– Is constantly pushing others to be autonomous (after all, autonomous people only respect others who are like them)
– Sees how something can be done rather than making excuses for why it can’t
– Will not associate with anomics for long, as they are unbearable to the autonomous individual
– laugh, move, learn, do
– Endless ambition and the pursuit of the extraordinary

Make the choice, be free, be true, be optimal and be autonomous
