On requirements

You can’t avoid spending money on gas. You can’t evade your taxes. You can’t get out of sleeping at least a few hours every day. You can’t get out of eating. You can’t get out of dying. These are requirements in your life, and they won’t change for a while.

Why do you become frustrated with requirements? Of all activities to despise, you don’t like going to the gas station and spending money to transport yourself because it feels like such a waste of money. But you’re not frustrated with spending five minutes a day on social media? Over two weeks, you’ll have wasted an hour mindlessly scrolling on the internet, and you’re frustrated at the $20 trip to the gas station that got you to work and back for days on end?

Identify the things that are required of you and find a way to love those activities. You will get nowhere by being frustrated with them.
