More Being. Less Doing.

It’s been more than a year since I last blogged, and I guess (and I hope) I’ve grown much since then. Anyway, been meaning to write this out for sometime, but workprocrastination prevented me from actually blogging. Since my last post, I’ve actually moved my blog to Github (which obviously did not work out), and then back to wordpress. I’ve also got involved in IAmTalentedSG, a social initiative designed to create more opportunities for kids with less.

Anyway, last week, in one of the TV serials I catch regularly (NCIS Los Angeles), one of the characters said something that stuck in my head, hence this post.

More being. Less doing.

Having been practicing meditation for the past few months on a regular basis, I slowly began to appreciate the usefulness of taking a step back at times, but I’ve never been able to actually do it, because I could never articulate it properly. This quote has very succinctly described what I’ve been trying to internalize in the past few months. Now that I can properly articulate this concept, I hope I can start practicing this moving forward.
