Starting is starting, restarting, restarting which is a word we often hear and has become a term “familiar” to all of us.
If you go on the internet and look for words that have the same meaning as restart, you will find: restart, resume, continue, continue, reset, reactivate, among all those “synonyms” only restart and reset are, the others do not express the need to start again, quite the contrary, they indicate that we continue with what we are doing.
If I reboot I will have to start again from the beginning, if I continue or resume I don’t need to go back to the beginning, I will simply continue from the point where I had left, this is progress.
As I was writing, images of vertical racing competitors (Towerruning), those competitions in which athletes climb the stairs of buildings like the Empire State Building, have appeared in my head.
Imagine that you are one of these athletes, you are participating in a vertical race and when you get to the 80th floor you find one of the people from the organization team of the test who stops you and says: “Now when we finish talking, you can choose between continue or restart… ”What would you choose?
In our life we constantly make decisions, when the alarm clock rings we decide whether to get up or continue 5 more minutes in bed, if we are going to take a trip we must decide whether we will do it by public transport or using our vehicle, etc.
All our decisions have consequences, although it is very unusual to make decisions on issues that may determine the rest of our lives because most of our decisions can be rectified very easily in view of how events unfold.
But it is also true that there are certain guidelines that have proven their effectiveness and we cannot ignore if we want to progressively enjoy a better life, one of the clearest is not to spend all the money we earn.
And this is applicable to your personal economy, to the accounts of your business if you are self-employed or of a society if you take care of its management, it is essential to put a portion of the money that we earn with our work, because if we do not do it this way we will spend all our life restarting and I think that starting every month of a life without any resources is the worst scenario we can imagine for our future.
In Greek mythology there is talk of a king, a certain Sisyphus, who was punished by Zeus for pushing a huge stone up a steep slope, but before he reached the top of the mountain the stone always rolled down and Sisyphus had to start again from the beginning over and over again.
Human behaviors are surprising, we do not need a God to impose a punishment on us, we are able to distract ourselves forgetting that we work and earn money to live a little better each day.
