In the way…

The sun sets on another day…

I read a cool saying today that stated: “The man who says it can’t be done shouldn’t stand in the way of the man doing it.”

It is funny how apt that statement is in may lives. So often the naysayer gets a lot of attention as they are not taking any chances, they are leaving things alone, and being less than engaged, but that is safe.  I have been in so many situations where it would be easier to just say it can’t be done, but that is not in me. (Often to my detriment). There are literally so many things in the world where there is a way that people waltz away from because it will take effort, cause pain, cause unrest, or just be seemingly less than optimal that it staggers the mind. When you sit down to do them though, there is usually a way.

A long time ago I had worked on a considerable number of computer systems. They were quite complex, but nowhere near massive. As I started a new job I was given a task that would have been easy for me on my older systems, but this was a new system that was huge (For the time). I could have walked away, but instead I sat down in front of the massive machine, and found there was an easy way, the same as it was on the smaller systems, and I completed the task quickly. 

I have known a lot of people who have said “We can’t” or a worse statement “that is above my pay grade” and they miss the thrill of being able to solve a real problem, simply and efficiently.

When you are tempted to step away instead of just doing it remember that most tasks are easier if you break them down to their smallest part, then move forward, one step at a time until you are complete. The world would be a better place if we only considered how, instead of why or why not.

So as the sun sets on another day, be that person doing something, and pass on the person that is in the way and definitely don’t be them. Make the world a better place by being an example of all that can be done, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and get er done….
