You are a failure…..

Keeping Busy Doing Nothing

“There is nothing that teaches you more than regrouping after failure and moving on. Yet most people are stricken with fear. They fear failure so much that they fail. They are too conditioned, too used to being told what to do. It begins with the family, runs through school and goes into the business

world.”

― Charles Bukowski, The Captain is Out to Lunch and the Sailors Have Taken Over the Ship

Look at yourself; you are a complete and utter failure. You are a cow’s teat, you are a nothing. You get up every day to log into your email to delete the junk, but respond to the “important”, but what are you doing. You are doing nothing. You are keeping busy to keep busy. Stop this today, realize you are a failure and start over.

Define success. What is it? Success to me is waking up every day and being able to do exactly that you want to do. I hate to piss you off, but this is my life. I awake, drink my 16 oz of ice-cold water to start my metabolism, a quick cup of coffee, and then I begin to write. Once done writing, I shower, and start my day of amazing human interactions, laughter, and a few challenges. I’ve followed this same routine now for sometime and I look back at that first day when I decided what my new life would be and officially announced, “I am retired.”

I am 6 foot tall, weigh 175 pounds, exercise 5 times a week with short runs, swims, or quick weight training. According to most BMI charts, I’m in pretty good shape. I travel at least a week a month if not more and am paid very well to live this life. I have a beautiful-amazing-smart-engaging business partner that I also spend a lot of quality time with. I have two of the best kids ever birthed and my immediate and extended family is tighter than an Eagle Scouts best-tied knot. This is my definition of success.

Success to you might be something completely different, but do you know what it is? Is it retiring at 65 so you can live 2 months only to find you have cancer and die 2 weeks later in a hospital bed whilst the nurses and doctors clean your bed pan’s and your friends and family visit you with tears in their eyes and lament “how sad…” You’ll be in a better place soon. Determine your definition of success and start living it, no one but you can do this, you must hit the pause button and figure this key point of life out and then… start over.

I’ve watched too many people work their entire lives only to have their “retirement” cut short by disease, age, or worse indifference. These people live to die while some of us live to live. When I die, I’ll laugh and my last words will be “thank you”. Because when I die, no matter the day, I’ll have lived the life that I wanted to live. I’ve not always been this way, but I am this way now and that has made all the difference.

So are you busy doing nothing? I just returned from a paradise where I would get up every morning and walk to breakfast passing the same man, with the same laptop, and the same old man glasses working away doing something, but damn he was busy. Same chair, same face, same work, man was he busy. Every day I walked by I thought, you sad ass. You are a miserable human being. You work at home to come to a tropical environment where all the food and drink are “FREE” and you sit there with your laptop and work. I have no idea what that man does, but in my mind he is a complete failure. Going on vacation and working is flat ass ridiculous.

Email is cancer. Your smart phone is cancer. It’s time to get some chemo and kill the cancer. Check your email twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Go to your smart phone settings and delete your email account. Write down 2 major tasks that you must complete every day and get them done. Quit being busy and start living the life that you have always wanted but were too busy to create.
