Doing Stuff


We need to be found "Doing Stuff" and are not just "Talking about it" Thinking Out Loud.Donald Noyes.20120829.20121209

--- I'm Doing Stuff

that I don't even have the faintest idea

Listening for things-that-can-be-heard - within-and-without

from-these I'm - Making a list and checking-it-thrice

is it desirable

is it doable

is it done

if it isn't, then will-it-be and when

and also

- where it is done

- when it is done

- who or what is to do it


- howwhere it is put when it is completed for the moment

- where it is put when no more doing is required

I am one who votes for this - Doing Stuff. This follows "Thinking About It" and "Talking About It" and perhaps "Putting It On Paper". The time comes when it is nearly possible to create the thing or event in real time and be able to show that "It Works!".

Groundbreaking starts often with the ceremonial plunge of the shovel into the earth where the thing is to be made. This is the starting point, when the will and the resources are commited to a "Project". It may be backed up by intricate and detailed plans, as in the construction of a new hospital, factory, shopping center or recreational site, or simply be a "Planting" of a seed, being a potential, a notion, and idea, a possibility one may seek to complete by making concrete plans, or initiate "Research" into the avenues one might pursue to accomplish an end result.

I admire the pioneers and the planners who decide to "just do it". Our frontiers in the western U.S. became a place where such individuals and movements were found to be active. Also the guy or gal who starts a business in the garage or basement because of a desire to be "Doing Stuff" and then found that what was made could be Useful Usable Used by thousands and millions! It starts with a Notion which grows into an Idea and them when one starts "Doing Stuff" about it, it is a Realized Product.

This can be said for other things such as literature and technology which are more and more being realized through the Computing Paradigm. Got an idea? Do something about it! Make it possible and real!
