The Curse

The curse for those of us who want so badly to change the world, and feel as though we can actually do it, is that we wonder far too often if we're doing enough, if we could make more of an impact, or if we could be doing it all better. We're afraid that we're settling with any one action, role, job or opportunity.

We could easily remedy this if we'd focus instead on being better people – loving each other more, having deeper conversations, and looking for the best in others. We'd very soon see that our greatest potential does not lie in climbing certain mountains or achieving certain goals, but rather in rising to the heights of character and the lofty ambitions of integrity and purpose.

After all, there is only so much we can do. But there is so much more that we can be.

well said. "do, do, do" is the matra of those who need to get rid of the shit they're full of (get it, doo doo reference?)

I'm dumb.

doing leads to burnout.
trying leads to failure.
being...leads to peace.
