I’m Doing, But What Am I Doing?
Do you ever think of that? You’re doing something in this instance that you want to do but you really don’t know of how you’re doing what you do?
I do that.
I really don’t see anything wrong with that either. I know I’m not perfect, but doing that thing that I want to do, whether I’m doing it right or wrong is 2 things……1 I’m doing it, and 2 I’m having fun doing what I’m doing.
Why do something that isn’t fun? Because you have to? Nah! Your rules, not mine.
I don’t think any of us consciously get it right, especially the first time out.
5,127. That is my favorite number. Why? That is the number of James Dyson prototypes (James word for failures, I like it) James made before succeeding with his Dyson Cyclone Vacuum Cleaner. Makes me realize that no giving up gets me where I want to go.
So, I do. I just simply do. And what I do is what I like. Yes, I peer in on others that have beaten the path before. I look for advice. And on the way I realize that if I don’t do and originate some of my own mistakes that I’ll always be just wanting to do. And I don’t want that.
I realize and accept that what I do is an ongoing and developing process. If not, I’d be on the sidelines of life watching others live.
So I’m doing, but what am I doing?
There’s a level of importance in doing what I’m doing. The real importance though is doing what I’m doing because it’s what I want to do. Not for filthy lucre (or clean lucre for that matter). But what comes my way I will gratefully enjoy.
I think there’s a lot to be said about ‘doing’. Even if I don’t know fully what I’m doing. I watch people not do because they are so fearful of making a mistake. And they take their life to the grave, unfulfilled.
What I do is not for someone else. What I do is for me. Thus, while in their eyes I may be failing, in my heart I’m enjoying. My focus isn’t on the end result but rather the moment, NOW…….the doing.
I’m doing, but what am I doing? Yeah, that’s the way it should be, adventurous. Enjoy yourself……do what you want to do even if you don’t know what it is you’re doing. You as I, will be much happier.
Peace, Love, and Beaches,
