“Figuring Things Out” might have been the wrong title for this post. But hey, it is what it is.
I was watching On The Waterfront a couple days ago, and I had an epiphany.
“LIFE… MAKES… SENSE!”
Ok, life is 100% like the moral drama that Marlon Brando faces in On The Waterfront, and my epiphany might have been more like remembering something I had already known, but for some reason that movie triggered this thought that made my life seem very simple.
This is a very important time in my life, but it comes with a clarity that hasn’t always been there. There isn’t so much “hmmm, maybe I could” it’s just like “Ok. Let’s do it.” This evolution is fun, but also challenging and a little scary. I keep having this vision that I have built this baller status board that can keep track of pretty much everything in my life. Everyday I can wake up and check the levels of incoming emails, tasks, projects, opportunities, friends, family, etc. I guess it is something like a computer personal assistant, and the more you work with it, the more it learns about you.
Now this probably seems very complex, but it is simple at its core. I guess just like humans the computers they eventually built. We are a mix of complicated functions with a simple purpose. I’ll probably have a better idea of what I am talking about at the end of next week, but I am excited to be thinking this way. I am excited to fix my problems and improve on the strengths I already have.
