The bible says a living dog is better than a dead lion.
One way to interpret that verse is that a small deed performed is better than a great deed only imagined and planned.
A weak heart that acts out is creed is better than a great heart that fails to act on its morals and values.
The song “Que Sera Sera” means, whatever will be, will be.
Because it is better to be lacking and poor than to not be anything at all.
I realized something today that was probably blatantly obvious to all my contacts before it became obvious to me, which was that my desire to be great was interfering with my greatness by forcing me into long periods of stationary waiting and planning, while others were moving and progressing and building change in their lives.
I wrote over 200 book outlines but did not write a single book because I kept worrying that my outline was not perfect enough and that it could be improved.
It reminds me of what a priest said in an interview, that he began his authorship career by writing five rubbish pages a day and than editing and trouble shooting later: Because a cheap idea had more impact than no idea at all.
So my goal from this day forward is to write a book, and not self punish or self delete if the content is not as perfect as desired. I owe it to myself to do this, after deleting 200 book outlines.
