STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS IS A TON OF WORK
Sophia Amoruso, founder of Girlboss once said in an interview “You don’t know what you’re doing until you know what you’re doing.” And isn’t that the truth? There are times when know how to be dedicated to your actions but most of the time we are just going through the motions. Responding to things because they are asked of us or because they are our natural states of thinking.
How do you get things done? I’m a list maker. I have a million lists and the most satisfying thing I can do is to complete my list. To cross everything off so I have a sheet of words and black lines striking through them that is satisfying but the problem is that I just keep creating more and more lists. It is never done or at least not for very long.
I’ve been reading a bit about being content. That feeling that you can be satisfied with something. I think it’s a myth. What do you do when you achieve something just stop? What do you do when you stop just wait? Wait for what?
I’m not sure that’s going to work for me. I like to be busy. I like to turn my ideas into something and keep having more ideas and make more lists so there is no moment of stopping there is just a sea of ideas and things to do and different ways to do them. Does that mean I am not content? I’m not sure yet. What you put out there comes back. If you’re not putting anything out what’s going to come back?
