Aim at Nothing

Do something, even if you miss the mark you are further ahead than you were before. This is something I had to learn the hard way (yet, again).  I've learned that what I do does not have to be perfect and polished, it just needs to be done.  I can go back and perfect things later. Creating things that need gradual improvements, sharing what you can right now, allows others to see what you are at least "trying" to do.  It is much better than creating nothing at all.

I know, I know, there are people out there with the philosophy that if you expect nothing you will not be disappointed.  But there is a problem with this thinking.  Expecting nothing and aiming at nothing are two different things. People get caught up in the idea that expecting nothing means doing nothing . . . that's not the case.  You can do something, you can aim for something and still have no expectations.  Yes, they are two separate actions - two separate things. 

Get this in your heads people, it's perfectly fine to hold the philosophy of expecting nothing so you are not disappointed.  What is not acceptable for growth and happiness is doing nothing.

Do something new.  Aim at something, with no expectations on results and see what you get.  You may be pleasantly surprised.

  1. Thanks for trying to "accentuate the positive" and make a dent in the negative and defeatist attitude that is so rampant and growing. So many people are frutstrated with the present economic situation instead of seeing it as an opportunity to do some creative thinking about present and future strategies. Great Article.
