What our doing is doing

We often ask what’s next to do? how could we go faster? how can we get more done?

And we turn away from other questions such as how does this feel for each of us? how tired are we? how can we sustain ourselves? what actually matters?

But I think the biggest question we most often fail to address comes from an understanding that, as human beings, we are shaped deeply by that which we repeatedly do.

We ask what to do, but we don’t often ask ourselves “what is our doing doing?” – to us, to the people around us, and to the world we leave for those who come after us.
