Success is a craft of magic for the undone.
Our choices are in the ethereal mold of us. We choose to do the UnDone or just keep on walking the path of Done and Known.
The undone is hard endeavor. The undone is manifested in the idea of not knowing when to start, where to start, how to start and what to expect from some “judgmental” decisions. As everybody is here to criticize and be disgruntled. There is no time and knowledge for trial and error. There is just error.
It is like exploring without a map. You might fall off the edge of the world or get entangled in the murky waters.
When reading about Christopher Columbus’ exploits I have always tried to imagine their turmoil and fear when sailing the Sargasso Sea. They were way out of their comfort zones. Nevertheless, when they embarked on such adventures, they acknowledged the thin red line between life and death but blurred it with the courage and perseverance to follow a dream…
The opposite of our comfort zone is the Sargasso Sea; unknown, bleak, menacing, hard to predict. Something we do not fathom nor pin down. The Sargassum seaweed can be both menace and challenge…Dark and light…magic and mirror of fears…
Magic is always in the undone. It flickers like buried treasures in moonlight. You know it is hard dangerous labor when you start uncovering them in broad daylight that strips away the magic and the legend. Just jump over fear and move on. What if they were so scared and wouldn’t dare pursue in the Sargasso Sea? We wouldn’t have found out that it is a sea like any other. Nevertheless, the only sea without a land boundary.
“You have to finish things – that’s what you learn from, you learn by finishing things.” – Neil Gaiman
Finish your trip into the UnDone and UnKnown and give it a name. Sometimes we name it success.
