“Be-Do-Say” Joey Reiman
Sometimes I struggle with the do, with the making things happen. My typical thought process goes along the lines of “Anyone can do anything, but not everything can think like me, therefore I am going to spend more time thinking as that can change more”
Not only is this 100% incorrect, it is the easy and lazy way to think about the grand solution and focus on what makes the long term difference.
The truth is mine and your point of view means nothing without action, and action means nothing without making others feel good.
Our teenage years are the most difficult because we are realising who we are and trying to work out how that fits in the world.
The problem is that who you think you are, what your POV is and what you want to do means nothing without your action. What you do creates the impression of you in others and it is others who decide your future.
If it is others who decide whether to marry you, promote you or give you advice, you have to frame your actions within their value framework, which is based on how they feel. What does your action mean to their agenda and ultimately their development in life?
Does this mean that we need to identify specific individuals to complete actions for? Or do we identify a mass behavioural group that will please the majority?
I say both. Becoming Do focussed will please the masses because you are getting things done, and find the people the matter and specifically make sure your actions help their agenda.
If the agenda of the important people in your life don’t match your desired actions, consider changing your direction or the company you keep – one will make you more rounded, one will make you happier.
