Do Be A “Do-Bee”*

June 12, 2012

Ideas begin in the Head. That thought flows to the heart for refinement and ultimately and what matters, not most but only, is to the body for action. We are all inherently special and unique. We are all here with and for a special and unique purpose for the benefit of all. Yet we are not special just because we are. We are special when we become that which we are meant to. We become when we do. What you do and how you do it determines who and what you ultimately become.

“The soul was sent to this world not to be, but to do.” – Yanki Tauber

“Say little and do much.” – Ethics of the Fathers 1:15

Intentions sent out to the universe alone don’t matter. Actions matter and are your fulfillment.

“A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be.” — Abraham Maslow

“The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.” – Vince Lombardi

“It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you.” Bruce Wayne in “Batman Begins”

This post was inspired by a very powerful Commencement speech given by Wellesley High Teacher David McCullough Jr. where he said “You’re not special”
