Knocking down obstacles one at a time - whack a mole!
Sunday, November 12, 2006
Game IS a life of whack a mole sometimes. I'm really GOOD at that game at the fair. I wonder if I would only approach REAL life like that, where I'd be. Real life, I've been hiding my eyes and they pop up and drop. Real whack-a-mole is so much fun. The diff between whack-a-mole and the article, though, is that there's no plan with whack-a-mole, but if you want a MEANINGFUL life, you want a plan based on what you care about. You only whack down the moles that could hurt your plan. Let the others drop.
Sometimes, actually, what's slowed me down has been immediately addressing things that would go away on their own. Instead of just letting some things pass. Which might be wiser. I've been caught up in the trivia of every day, distracted from having a bigger plan.
