The Joy of Doing Nothing

I don’t believe in luck. I believe in the opportunities that I create. To build I need to work, a lot. I need to plant seeds, a lot of them, and seeing 99% of them wither.

It’s that less than 0,01% that gives returns. That changed my life. So I know I cannot be without doing something towards that little lucky-made seed.

But… But, but! But at the same time if I don’t carve a space to hear my thoughts I become a mindless executor who loses any taste in life. It would be just work and ambition. I would just burn out (and I did it many times so far).

So, when I have the luxury of doing absolutely nothing, oh man! At first, is disorienting, your work intoxicated brain looks for something to do, “to keep yourself busy”. Then you realize, I can “do nothing”! What the hell am I trying to do, here!

Oh, beautiful sensation and joy. That is Christmas! That is a celebration to me. Doing nothing.

It might endure too little but when I get those rare moments I am out of this world.

So, good life to you! Nurture, carve, find and cherish those moments of doing absolutely nothing.

Does it ever happen to you? Call me.
