Do Nothing

The world would be a much better place if people would do nothing more often. Generally people want to do something all the time. This tendency to motion and busyness can be dangerous to humans and other living things.

I am guilty of mindless busyness sometimes too, and it is no wonder. I was born and raised in the land of perpetual, systemic busyness - North America. Here the way to success is to just do stuff, and it doesn't really matter what.

Keep moving. Go faster.

Whatever you do, don't stop. Ever.

Unless you have a herniated disk, in which case you have an unlimited licence to do nothing.

    My theory is all this busyness is just avoidance. Avoidance of reality and mortality.

    1. Gam,

      I think you are right. So right that you inspired my next post with your comment. Reality and mortality are harsh teachers, but avoidance only makes the lessons more difficult to learn.
