"If you put 1/10 the energy of complaining into solving the problem you would be surprised how well it works out."
- Randy Pausch
now, i think that statement is one to live by. seriously.
usually when we complain we are not thinking logically. at all. it's 100% emotional. which causes us to focus on the problem and just complain.
which does no one ANY good.
in fact it does a lot of harm most of the time.
but we don't realize it because, if you remember, we're not thinking logically.
but what if you took just 10% of that "complaining energy" and reallocated it toward solving the problem at hand... i.e. - actually doing something about it?
wow. you could be surprised.
my goal is a little different though. i think i'm a cold turkey kind of guy. forget the 10%. i want to reallocate 100% of the energy from complaining to productively working to fix, solve, create solutions.
i hope i'm surprised at how well it works out.
