What do we make?
What do we do?
These are the things that define us.
Everyone is creating
all the time.
We make something of ourselves everyday.
We make something of our days.
We make relationships.
We make communities.
Our lives are our creation.
The problem is so many of us don't make things that we are proud of.
So many of us spend our days making things that we don't believe in.
We are formed by the systems in which we operate.
We have become people who focus on management, not creation.
We are excellent at managing;
Management is an act that supports what has been made previously.
When management becomes our lives,
what are we creating?
What becomes of us?
What are we?
Go and work with your hands.
Finish your job,
and go make something.
Make a garden.
Make a painting.
Make of yourself something you want to be.
Make a coffee company if you want.
But do not be the creation of some system.
Do not be the thing a system made for it's own benefit.
You are here to create,
to bring into this world the things in your heart and in your mind.
You are what you make.
