I’ve been working on my business. More often I am working IN my business but today, I’m on it. It’s a funny thing, too, because I have more ideas than my head can contain. Then is there time to sort it all out? Perhaps I can sleep when I’m dead.
The question is, I look at my life and wonder, where am I the authority? What ideas and thoughts and knowledge can I impart to the world, that the world wants to know?
I’ve surveyed and have information. I have ideas. I have some cool things happening. Slowly. Ugh. So slowly. But, perhaps that’s the key. I start by collecting things – information, questions, requests. I move on to teaching, imparting, and growing. Is it all about wealth? No. Is it all about freedom, heck yea!
I think that’s what we all want. We are all the authority on something and perhaps part of our function in life is to impart that wisdom to others as we age. As a society and culture, Americans have not done a very good job in that arena. We tend to disregard what our older people know, what they think, how they feel. Their knowledge is golden and it is lost each and every day. Unique pieces of the world are gone. Are we doomed to have to learn it again?
I think right now it’s a capitalistic view of sharing knowledge but that will change. Over the course of hundreds of years, people will evolve and learn to share without dollar/rupee/Euro attachment.
I guess until then, we’ll all keep working “on our business.”
