Doing, not thinking

I read this great excerpt this morning, and had to share it:

“Some people spend a lot of time sitting around talking about things they’re going to do and others get out and do them. I think there are plenty of people like that.”

When Asked: “So that’s the trick? To do rather than think?”

“Yeah, I think so. Everyone says a lot of people will no doubt think, ‘oh, I wish I had that idea’ but what they should think about is ‘what ideas do I have?’ And get off your bum and go and do it.”

  1. Started doing that and 3 times now and ended up finding that my ideas weren’t original after all.

    Guess part two of that lesson is “keep on keepin’ on”

  2. Here’s my perspective on thinking : We’re not thinking at all…we are remembering. Life is an experience. Everything we experience is a memory. We are only thinking that we are here and we are thinking, but actually this is not the reality. We are here to experience, not to think. A memory can only be a memory of an experience. Get the picture?
