I love to celebrate success – mine and other peoples and I am delighted that I have now received 1337 likes on my Brilliance Within Blog posts and thanks to all those who have taken the time to read and press like as I really do appreciate every single one.
However… Here’s the BUT….
Thanks WordPress for sending me this milestone but it got me thinking – Why?
Why is 1337 a number to be highlighted as an achievement?
Why not 1340 or 1300 or 1350 or even 1400?
Is it just me or is 1337 Likes a very random number to have as a milestone?
Maybe it says something about me that I’m perturbed by the randomness of this number to celebrate as a milestone so I’d love to hear from any of you psychologists (amateur or professional) out there that can give me a clue as to why this makes me feel a bit strange?
Am I stuck in a limiting ‘thought pattern’ of expecting to celebrate the ‘even number milestones’ and is it just me that feels this way?
When I attend meetings in the same meeting room, I tend to pick the same side of the table to sit and I occasionally force myself out of my ‘comfort zone’ to sit on the opposite side but when I do, it really does feel very strange..
I know it’s good to change and push oneself out of the comfort zone so I do make myself do things to ‘break the habits’, so do you think WordPress are pushing us out of our Comfort Zones with these random milestones or am I missing the relevance of this number?
If this is the case then – THANKS WordPress! It’s worked…. I’m out of my Comfort Zone – This Mancunian Blogger is uncomfortable!!! HELP…..
