"Get to" vs "Have to"

Read Seth Godin's post about this topic.

What distinguishes something that you "get to" do and something that you "have to" do? The way both phrases feel within itself is different.

  1. It is clear that either attitude that we is of our own making
  2. "Have to"'s - we perceive, knowingly or unknowingly, as being pressed upon us (bills, exercise - anything under the sun, depending on who we are talking about)
  3. "Get to"'s - we jump at the opportunity (movies, food - anything under the sun, depending on who we are talking about)
So what causes us to behave either way? Our involvement with the situation in question. Despite many situations being reflexive "have to"'s or "get to"'s, this is the variant that decides how we really feel about it.

So increasing our involvement on any situation will push that situation from "have to" to "get to". Agree? I think so!

Now read Sadhguru's quote - "If you are deeply involved with the simplest aspects of your life, you will see every aspect of your life is spectacular"
