I wish my watch would stop telling me that I have crushed my goals. I don’t really want to be crushing anything, and I feel like that sort of aggressive approach to life is a problem.
The easy response is to say these are just words, but the words we use to describe our world our what structure our experience of that world. The words we use are important.
If you walk around casually talking about crushing things that don’t actually need to be crushed, I’d say that’s going to affect your view of the world and how you live in it, and not for the better.
