It seems to me that the world is constantly changing, and it seems to be happening faster than ever. So why not use that to your advantage? The best way to start is to create a list of the things that you are learning and trying to do. Begin with a list of your goals.
The same is true in your own life. If you want to take good care of yourself, go through your goals and see what they are. It’s not as fun to say “I’m going to get my butt kicked because I’ve been eating kale” but it is something you should address.
This might seem obvious, but its not. People who get good at doing something, and arent afraid to put in the work for it, tend to do it better. And thats the point of a list that helps you focus, and gets you thinking on the right things.
In our case, our list was a list of all the things we wanted to achieve as a family. It included things like our marriage, our son’s education, and our daughter’s success in school. What most of us probably didn’t know at all was that none of these things were easy. The things that were easy for us, things we all wanted, were the things that would make life easier for our daughter. We didn’t know that, we just knew that she was different.
Our daughter, Jessica, is a smart, caring young woman who will change the world. But there are things that she struggles with in life. She’s struggling with her own lack of self-awareness and being “too smart for her own good”. She wants to go to college and be a teacher, but that’s not possible with her disability. She wants to be the first in her family to go to college, but this was not a popular idea amongst her friends.
Jessica is a little girl who is always thinking about how she can change the world for the better. She is quite intelligent and knows the best ways of doing it, but she struggles with her self-awareness due to her disability. She doesn’t know where she’s going, and she doesn’t know what she’s doing, and it makes her feel a bit lonely.
She has no idea what she’s doing. But she has an innate ability to learn, make decisions, and then she has to learn about herself.
Jessica has her own “self-awareness”, but sierra madre doesnt. And that is one of the things that makes the game so unique. Sure, there is a lot of talk about her abilities, but the real way sierra madre is at work is through research and experimenting. For instance, when sierra madre is in the lab, she is constantly researching different ways of fighting disease, and testing them on herself.
Like many other video games, sierra madre is really only about taking a few steps forward and then taking two steps back. Its about being open, curious, and brave. Its about making her own mistakes. Its about living fully in the moment.
Its also about making a living. She is employed by a pharmaceutical company that is developing a new drug that will cure cancer. It is a drug that will be able to stop the spread of disease by healing the patient’s own cells. She is trying to bring this drug to market, but in order to do this, she is going to have to hire, train, and educate scientists to develop the drug, and to help them work together to perfect it.
