Creative thinking and rational action, a good combination, really, the Mother and Father of all invention. To get you started in the right direction, I would like to write a little something here that makes you think. I will use pretty plain language, and maybe a few big words to “show off”. Life is a simple game, sure there are complex moments and realities at times, but those complex moments and realities showcase how simple the game really is. Thinking on those facts of reality, we must break through the truth and get honest with ourselves about those facts of reality.
Invention keeps facts and reality moving forward, so does creativity. That is where unconsciousness stops and consciousness begins. Living in a static, “natural”, “normal” way is the ultimate weakness for anyone that wants to improve their lives genuinely. In short, get out of your “comfort zone” and all else will ultimately be added. Henry “Hank” Ketchum once said through his “Dennis The Menace” cartoon, “Why do dumb things seem so smart while you are doing them?” That describes “the comfort zone” right there to a gigantic perfection in so many ways, I cannot begin to describe easily how foolish it is to become too comfortable and unconsciously in a rut is. But through what I just described, life is best lived with growth and realistic expansion. As time does not stay the same, life does not either.
I know, I am being somewhat vague, but I want to give you room to think creatively and in an awake way about reality. If I did all your thinking for you, that would lead to another form of rut and boredom and if I know it all anyhow, how can you genuinely know something for yourself. (Subtle joke there) Reality comes down to climbing the ladder and doing twenty push-ups, not paying someone to climb our ladder and doing our twenty push-ups for us. “Drop and give me forty!”, so the smart person drops their pants, digs in their pockets and gives the person saying that forty dollars, right? Although apocryphal and humorous, it does get my exact point across. Life is a game we must play for ourselves, and nobody is going to do it for us. So, cry foul, play ego and fume for a minute then genuinely live for yourself, there is nothing better that can be done than to get it all out and then be real.
