He’s an annoying little fellow, but he’s right much of the time. By “doing,” he doesn’t mean accomplishing; he means committing to your action or deciding that you’re not going to do it. Sometimes, we commit our entire selves to a project or an action — only to find that we fail miserably. But we’re better for the effort, because it means we don’t sit there in later years saying, “should have.” Hey, I’ve got a big birthday rapidly approaching; I’ve got a lot of “should have’s” stored up behind me; I’d rather do or make the choice to do not and find something else.
By the way, did I mention I’ve had my first moment of, “Am I going in the right direction with this thing?” for the year?
