“You should know now that a man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting, nor by thinking about what he will think when he has finished acting. A man of knowledge chooses a path with heart and follows it.”
– Carlos Castaneda, A Separate Reality.
The quote above is from a book I finished reading this week. It inspired me a lot and got me thinking about life, time, work and passion.
A lot times we spend time thinking of what could be. Trying to figure out every possible detail from the start to make sure we get everything right and avoid failure. I think failure should be the least of our concerns. Instead, make a goal and work towards it each day. Get focused on the task at hand, live in the present, enjoy the experience of living your goals, take regular progress notes. When you do this, the future takes care of itself.
The future isn’t made 2 or 5 or 7 years from now. The future is made right this minute.
So ask yourself today, what path will you follow?
Go Be Adventurous.
