I’m not usually one for quoting myself, but I have to say that this quote by David Foster Wallace is the most profound and hilarious that I have read in awhile. It really hit me and changed my entire perspective on life.
I’ve always been the guy who says things just because. This quote is a great example of that, but also, it’s one of those things that is almost like a running joke around the office. I tell myself I’m a man because I think that I can do anything I set my mind to. Some of the things I’ve accomplished, some of the things I’ve failed at, and some of the things I’ve achieved.
I think that when I tell myself that I can do anything I set my mind to, that I am saying that I can do the things I want to do, and that I can achieve what I want to achieve. When I say that Im a man, I usually just mean that I can do anything I set my mind to. If I tell myself I can do something, I think that I can do it too. I do not think that I can do everything I set my mind to.
As I mentioned before, the definition of “man” is broad. It is a term that encompasses all of life’s experiences and all of our personal goals. That is why we use it as the label for ourselves and the way we define ourselves. The thing that makes us us is the way we decide what is important and what is not important. We make our goals in life based on what makes us happy and what we think is important.
For most of us, that means the things we do for the most part are important and for the most part are worth doing. As we grow and meet new people, we realize that our goals are not just for our own personal enjoyment anymore. What used to make us feel like a man is now making us feel like a woman.
That makes a lot of sense except that most of the men that we meet or work with (and especially new people) are not really doing anything for themselves. In fact, the majority of them are quite the opposite. If our goals are made up of things that are not even necessary, we have no room for anything but the most superficial of goals. The result of this is that we have very little room for growth and development in our lives.
Many of us have spent the last few decades of our lives trying to compensate for a life of relative isolation. We’ve learned how to keep busy, to go to work, to live a good life, to have fun, and to be the best we can be. In fact, many of us spend a great deal of time trying to make sure we are the best we can be. But as a result of that, we often end up feeling like we have less time for ourselves.
In today’s society, this is a problem. We tend to get too caught up in our own lives and the things we want instead of learning how to take care of others. In the world of the future, there will be people who are interested in helping others, and people who are interested in helping themselves.
We think of ourselves as being supermen, superwomen, superhuman, or superwhatever, but in fact it’s far more complicated than that. The reality is that we all struggle to find the balance between being a good person and being a good citizen. But as we become more aware of how our attitudes and behaviors impact others, we can learn to make more time for ourselves. We can start to take care of others while taking care of ourselves.
