While showering tonight, I was thinking about – isn’t it great how some of our best thinkings come from shower time? – the idea of doing things better. I feel that everyone seems to be concerned about doing this or that better than everyone else all the time. And aren’t those people all just doing the same things? Aren’t they all trying to do better at the same things that everyone else is doing? I feel like I’m always looking at what everyone else is doing, and trying to figure out something to do that’s not that. They’re all going this way, so I’m interested in going that way. Like if everyone is concerned about picking and discussing their favorite dessert food, I’m over yonder, pondering what it’s like to be a tree, possibly even talking to one, asking it questions. That might not be the best example, but I think it’s still a valid one – I’m always looking for something different, especially when it feels like everything is so the same. Sure, I’m still thinking about doing better at what I do and being better at who I am. But I’m usually looking to do that by doing something different… and isn’t that what innovation – and successful inventions – is all about?
I’m not so sure I’ve communicated what I’d wanted to communicate, but I’m really sleepy right now, so I kind of don’t mind (slash I can’t even really focus on the text to see if I spelled it all correctly, anyway, let alone to verify that it is all stellar-ly expressed). Here’s to wishing you a happy, holy, healthy life, wherever, whenever, and whoever you may be. Cheers 🙂
