For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to rule the world. I mean that in the least conceited way possible. I’ve never known my goals to be grounded by a ceiling. My goals are infinite, but almost to the point where I might be unsatisfied.
After doing a little bit of soul searching after I graduated from college this past spring, I’ve been training myself to not be unsatisfied- and it’s been really, really hard.
Before I even graduated I was offered a job as a writer with a prestigious news station. I took it. Since then, I’ve felt this immense self-induced pressure to find the next big job. However, after much research and confiding in friends and family way too many times, I’ve concluded that I’m indeed a young adult and have time to complete my goals. AKA figure out what the hell I want to do.
So, the question may be, is it possible your goals are so grandeur they can derail you? If the pressure we feel to accomplish something weighs too heavily, then maybe so.
This isn’t to say if you feel too much pressure from aspirations to just let them go, but to step back and assess the situation.

To sum things up, the everyday pressures we feel to achieve something can be subsided if we let time take its course. Take into account that you should have a time frame to get things done but the idea of time running out should not consume your life.
