“Just Do It”

During my daily ritual of surfing the inter-webs I came across the Shia Labeouf “motivational video”. Of course the clip I saw only showed that weird rant and excluded the context. It was for an art project. But that didn’t stop the internet from making it ridiculous, as the internet always does. I LOL’d in real life most of the day as hilarious parody videos kept popping up. But my initial reaction to it gave me the following train of thought;

-Shia is still pretty hot with a rattail.

-I wonder what his mom thought of that movie he was in that was basically a porno.

-I’m so glad I wasn’t a child star.
and

-Should I be doing more with my life?

Like, am I doing enough? Am I really pursuing my dreams or am I just pretending? I think society puts us in two categories: “the made it” and “the haven’t made it.” But what about the “actively pursuing?” We place a lot of emphasis on the outcome of our hard work but not enough on the struggle to do that hard work. It’s like we believe that whatever our goal is will magically get done just because we say it will. I think we need to stop looking at the top and start looking at what’s in front of us. Or, stop trying to eat the whole cake in one bite and instead take one slice at a time. Our goals aren’t going to be achieved overnight (unless your goal is to get a good night’s sleep) and it’s not going to happen the same way it did for our favorite idols and/or celebs. Not sure where I was going with this post, but yea, “Just do it!”
