A person who often reminds of what is important said something that perked my ears up lately:
"In the end, you won't be judged on what you've read but rather on what you've done."
In other words, thoughts/intentions/'what's in your head' = nothing/zero/denada/crap.
This outlook on life makes things harder for those of us who like to think great thoughts, profess patience and thoughtfulness.
It's all about action and results. Does that mean you get a rob a store to give your beloved those diamond ear rings? Nope - gotta play by the rules. But you've got to produce. You've got to DO something. Those beautiful thoughts have to translate into action.
So, what are you going to DO?
