Their are two main possible ways to get things done. One interest driven and the other would me goal driven. Interest driven is something that follows your interest. You are not suppose to over think things because you are interested in it. Goal driven way is one when you do not consciously think about things and you do what you decided you have to accomplish.
I wonder if these two ways to getting things done are mutually exclusive. I also wonder if these two ways are just different side of two coins and go hand in hand.
It also sounds like a way to evade hard work. Which leads to question if is it possible to evade hard work. I intuitively think it depends a lot on focus. Focus plays an important role.
Focus is easy to lose. You lose more that focus when you lose focus. You wonder into realms that are not supportive of your goals. I also feel focus is something we train ourselves to do.
