Let me try to explain it to you ……
For some time, I’ve been thinking about writing a book.
Actually, I’ve thought about writing a bunch of books.
I haven’t done this yet.
But, I do have two books started.
Which makes me as good an example as you’ll ever find for the third “Two Kinds of People.”
This is the name of the book that your post brought to mind … that I’ve been thinking about writing.
The first two kinds of people that there are … are the givers and the takers.
The second kind are the gonna dos.
(Is this starting to sound like “Them Poems?”) Which I hated.
Obviously, I’m one of these … I’m gonna write a book…..
The third kind are the starters, but never finishers.
I’m one of them too.
The list goes on and on….enough to fill a book… I belive.
It’s very easy to get frustrated.
But, where most of us are now, even the givers, is that we all have our gotta dos.
Which we will use every trick in the book to avoid doing.
I have two of these facing me on Monday, which it already is.
I hate having to do these two things….I hate having to do them more than you could ever imagine.
But ………. I gotta do em.
It’s probably too late….since I’ve been putting them off for so long.
This is one thing……..
There are many others.
One of them, I’m sorry to say is “The Silent Majority.”
They only speak every two and four years …. When they vote!
What you really have to watch out for are the ones who do speak up.
Some of them stormed Washington.
They let their feelings be known.
2020 was an incredible year.
2021 is going to be more incredible.
I’m very optimistic.
So much so … that I spent some money that I shouldn’t have.
I bought two subscriptions.
One for the NY Times.
The other for The Wall Street Journal.
I don’t want to miss a bit of it.
We’re all getting older … this isn’t going to change.
The older we get … the less we do…because we can’t do what we once did.
This means, you’ll probably hear even less from people.
But, they’ll still be there…. Until they aren’t.
Shane said he was going to live forever.
I told him I was going to do the same.
He was always 10 years older than me.
I looked at him ….and said …that’s where I’ll be 10 years from now.
