Doing Nothing

Doing nothing repetitively is doing nothing, repetitively.

    • Thank you, Tom. I need to remind myself of this point over and over. It’s so easy to do nothing over and over and fall into a false sense of security that nothing is wrong because you’re just not doing anything. But the reality is that doing nothing is doing nothing, over and over. Even failing, or making mistakes, or looking stupid—which is at least something—is better than doing nothing over and over and over…

  1. Haha, love it. Simple and beautiful. I feel I’ve heard of a term for the prosaic effect you’ve used to illustrate the meaning in the sentence itself.. but I can not find the word for it. Or perhaps it does not exist, and I am imagining things?
