Do To Become

Want to be somebody?

Do something. Then do it again. And again. And again.

You get the picture. If you want to be, you have to be willing to do.

Artists make art. Writers write. Performers perform. Entrepreneurs start businesses.

That's the challenge: you have to do to become. No doing, no becoming. Labels are meaningless.

And when you start doing things often enough, you start to realize the doing is way more valuable than the becoming anyway.
