Somewhere, sometime in my life, someone said, “If you do nothing, nothing will happen.”
I was amused by the deep thought with what the author has said this. I loved it probably more than you did while reading it now, maybe because I was high on weed.
Now that I am sober and re-think the same above quote, it gives me quite a shock on a daily basis.
Thus every day I wake up.
Make up a Task list.
And do my best to complete the maximum task on this list.
Seldom I hit 100% completion and those days I could would or be able to sleep at night properly.
Rest of the Days I think I did not live my life to the fullest.
Out of the blue, I gazed upon an offer on Gumtree. (gumtree.com.au is a website in Australia where people advertise to sell the things they have). I saw A box of books for AU $ 20. I scrolled the post and thought one day! One day even I will have a library of fiction & nonfiction books, at my house.
Then again in my head, I came upon the same thoughts about the Theory Of Nothing: As if you do nothing. Nothing will happen.
Thus I did something.
And results are the two pictures of this post.
Though a small start but Today I do have a mini library at home.
This task was not on my daily task list but I just followed my instincts or the words of some random stranger in the past which changed my thinking to initiate an action plan in the present.
Reflecting on my day, I think I beat up procrastination, laziness and put on action to execute something beautiful.
Then again when I told this story my cousin with a similar photograph as above, then she said, “Congratulations on Buying them but will you ever be able to read them at all?”
I dogged the question in reply explaining it in Aussi dry humor that “they are part of my retirement plan.”
But in reality, the Theory of Nothing is ringing more like Jingle Bells on a Christmas night.
“If you do nothing, Then Nothing will HAPPEN.”
