I’ve been thinking a lot lately about doing things that matter. Spending time on things that matter.
Having conversations about—
Helping businesses that—
Meeting people who care about things that—
We spend so much time spinning our wheels. Selling things. Making people believe something different about us and our capabilities than is actually the truth. And in the process, we tend to alienate each other. Our daily interactions become superficial, meaningless. And we wonder why we’re left feeling unfulfilled.
I’ve noticed, lately, a substantial, material reaction in my brain when performing off-screen activities—especially those which stimulate other senses to a large extent. It happens while raking the yard and the brisk fall air chills my skin, and the dirt and leaf crumbs find their way under my sleeves. And it happens while cooking, feeling the texture of the veggies against the board, or clenching a smoking match between my teeth to fight the burn of the onion air.
How might you rearrange your life to do more things that really matter?
