On should-less living

So exactly what is it?

Should-less living.

Should-less?

Means, without standards?

Nope, without rest of the world’s ideas of how our life should look like.

Consider the below:

  1. I should wake up at 5 am in the morning
  2. I should work hard
  3. I should help people

Versus below:

  1. I wake up at 5 am in the morning
  2. I work hard
  3. I help people

“Should thinking” conveys ideology while “Should-less thinking” conveys actions.

If you fill your world with shoulds then you’ll feel a lot and accomplish a lot less. But if you fill your world with should-less-ness then you have an opportunity to accomplish a lot with tons of actions.

Actions.

“It is easy to sit up and take notice, What is difficult is getting up and taking action.” ~ Honore de Balzac

More often than not, ideology translates into mere feelings and ideologist people find themselves on the passive side of effects.

Being that is okay if that’s what you stand for but presuming that you don’t, only actions will facilitate you to be on the side of the cause.

Be a cause in the matter, not the effect.

The feeling is not enough, we have to do something about it. Willing is not enough, we must act.
