“Do not give your attention to what others do or fail to do; give it to what you do or fail to do.”— Dhammapada
When we give our attention to what others do or fail to do, we neglect to focus our attention on what we do or fail to do. There are some things we do that will not be enough or we do the wrong things expecting results. And of course there are things we fail to do because we just don’t want to do them. There are things we must do if we want to succeed. It is easy to think of things to do, than to do them. Thinking about doing something is just a delay. Effort takes time, energy and most of all patience when we are in the learning-how stages. Some learnings are dry but necessary and some are stimulating.
