Why Worry?

I have just completed the first phase of army life, the BMT (basic military training). No longer am I a just recruit, I am now a Private.

Stress in the army

The thing about the army is that they like to stress you out about the littlest things — shoes must be black, bags must be clean, do this that way, or else

Having always been one who does not believe in doing things I find stupid properly, I’ve always done what they told me in a very half-hearted manner, while most of my mates seem to put their heart and soul and more into doing all this rubbish.

Being well versed in the contrast effect, where it is easier to see a shoddy piece of work when every other piece is of a high standard, I’ve always worried when it comes to inspection or evaluation. Well, I’ve gone through the training, and it seems, everything has turned out just fine.

On hindsight, it seems I have worried all the time for absolutely nothing. All the energy I’ve put into wondering if I’d complete gruelling events or pass the tests have really been wasted energy.

One rule I’ve learnt: everything will turn out just right.

I love to read and write. Professionally, data science, technology, and sales ops are my thing. In my non-professional life, I aspire quite simply to be a good person, and encourage others to do the same. For those who care, I test as INFJ in the MBTI.
