What have you achieved today?
More than me I hope. I bought some pizzas for the freezer. Some other nick knacks that I ascertained to be necessities. I failed to speak with the person that I need to speak with most. Failed? I didn’t exactly try. I let it be to the hands of fate. If you do not set out to succeed, don’t set out at all?
I didn’t and I haven’t and tomorrow is another day.
No shit Sherlock!
Tomorrow I shan’t set out to achieve either. I will revel and bathe in the luxury that is. Letting be what is, or letting what is or maybe be?
In an age of measurement, record of everything. Are we achieving? Are we losing sight of quality in the race for more?
I do not pretend to know. Hell, I’m not at all sure of what I do know. But I know I’m not going to stress to find out.
What is it that we have that separates us from every other creature on this planet? No, not the upright homo-sapien posture and walk. Not even our ability to (theoretically) communicate.
I could be wrong yet all other animals of all other kinds are straight forwardly intent on simple survival.
We, humans are intent on complicating any element of everything.
Do not misunderstand my intended message here please. I am far from against analysis, reflection, improvement through such like.
What is my intended message? How do you measure achievement? Today I did.. I was working towards.. I am (you are) tired?
Today I am. There is a whole lot of achievement in real terms.
