Being and doing

Doing and being are not the same.

Doing is about the actions you take and the decisions you make: your behaviour.

It focuses on the past, future, and the present moment.

Being, on the other hand, is the foundation of all you’re doing: your personality, habits, mental models, and life perspectives.

It’s about this moment, right now.

Life has nothing to do with what you’re doing and everything to do with what you’re being.

The magic happens when you get to the root of what you really want to be.

And stop ignoring this inner voice that secretly knows what truly excites you.

While fully appreciating that, this moment is all we have.

What do you choose to be?

Live the reality you wish to experience. Right this moment.

Comparing is draining

Personal Development

Comparing is pointless. When we compare, we typically take the strengths of others and put it against our weaknesses. Even if we eventually get better in one area, there’s something else to improve on.

Two mistakes

Creativity
All

It's one thing to give an idea (or a side hustle) a chance, and decide to take a break from it. It's another thing altogether to consider starting something, but not even take the first steps to get it off the ground.
