Watched the movie Deathrace last night. By myself. Yeah, really. You see, we clarks of the female persuasion are a little different. But you know what? Not gonna go on and on about that. You can just read all about that over at the Wakefield Doctrine, or the other place.
Where the heck was I?! I was outside doing my cardio workout getting the old endorphins worked up when some words started to drip into my brain. By the time I got around to pouring a cup, well, it was gone. But I’m going to put on another pot and try anyway.
My thoughts started to perk around the notion of “Plans” and how clarks are famous for “Plans”. Over time the concept of a “Plan” has taken on negative connotations by yours truly (and self aware clarks everywhere). It became associated with the lesser of the clark like attributes of living in the future. As opposed to today, the now, at this moment. True to a point.
It occured to me this morning that there is nothing wrong with plans, everbody makes plans. The challenges occur in the post execution of the “Plan”. The big one, the master, last heist of my career kind of “Plan”. We’ve all seen enough of those movies to know that there are only 2 outcomes. It boils down to a matter of choice, a matter of being able to make a decision at the drop of a hat, to adapt to the moment and keep the f@#* moving.
Once you make the statement “I’m in” you have to be prepared to deal with the situation on a contemporaneous basis. Either it works or it doesn’t. What happens afterwards is your choice. It’s all about choice and the funny thing about that is you don’t ever really have the luxury of time. You can’t go on day after day “thinking” of what to do, you just have to be in the moment and do the thing that makes sense at the time. You cannot be distracted by superflous details (imagined or not), you cannot take the time to entertain all the infinite scenarios that “might happen if“*!
Is there a point I am trying to make here today? For this Girlie there is. It’s simple, make a choice now. We can create our own prison. And it can last a lifetime but if there’s a race available, am I going to step up. What will I do for my freedom?
