Shut-up. It is not necessary to talk as much as we do. It is not necessary to explain your actions. Why explain yourself? It is almost as if the only way most of us can substantiate our lives is if we talk ourselves into existence. Our actions truly speak louder than our words. If someone doesn’t understand you through your behavior, he won’t understand you by your words.
This says something very important to us about our acting. If we have to explain our character to someone before that person understands him, then we are not doing a good job. Your character’s actions should speak for themselves. If you are off track you should know it by your explanations.
I have also found that whenever I talk about a project in the midst of the project, it dissipates. It is never as strong as if I had just presented the finished product.
Let me give you an example. You tell someone a wonderful idea. She will tell you all the reasons why it won’t, can’t, shouldn’t happen. You start to doubt yourself and soon you believe that it probably wasn’t that great an idea to begin with.
I say all ideas are equally good but they can become brilliant when accomplished.
No one sees life like you do. To give them an idea which has not been fully thought through is courting disaster. It is much easier to criticize than to applaud and most people will take the easiest path. Give the person a complete performance and then go on your way without explanations. Let them decide by and for themselves if it was meaningful.
