“To act is to modify the shape of the world.” – Jean-Paul Sartre
It’s a shame that the phrase have a bias towards action spun into cliché business speak, because I do believe having a bias towards action serves you well in this world. For me it’s a kick in the ass reminder to get going already. To use another cliché, to just do it already.
I took a few steps to try to shape the world today, in my own modest way. Shouldn’t we all? Time will tell if I put a dent in the universe or simply sputter into a sea of indifference, but at least I’m acting. And isn’t that something?
