build something (1)

I am just trying to build something

I am just trying to build something of purpoae and of meaning. Just trying to use what limited skillsets I have whilst on this mortal coil to do something of some use. Use to who? Who knows? Hopefully you if you are reading this. Maybe not.  

I think I will know it when it is done. But will it ever be done? Will the work that has yet to be fully defined ever find completion or will it be an ever-moving goal post. All I know is that I see a hell of a lot of people not doing anything. And I can be as guilty as the next person of doing that. Sometimes not doing something is the best thing to do. But spending your life not doing anything just watching others do it seems to me somewhat pointless.  

Now I am not one of life’s great doers. Don’t get me wrong. I am one of life's great procrastinators. I am the easily and constantly distracted. I have a distinct lack of completion in a lot of what I do or have ever done, or half done. But I would rather be doing something interesting and never fully get it done than never do anything at all. 

This world is full of distractions. And for the easily distracted this means there are millions of things that might get in the way and before you know it the day is gone. But if I can wade through all of that maybe I will end up doing something worth doing. Something that gets done, or at least gets started and takes on a life of its own.
