The Things To Do

Apr 29 2008

R. Buckminster Fuller: The things to do are: the things that need doing: that you see need to be done, and that no one else seems to see need to be done. Then you will conceive of your own way of doing that which needs to be done—that no one else has told you to do or how to do it. This will bring out the real you that often gets buried inside a character that has acquired a superficial array of behaviors induced or imposed by others on the individual.

Try making experiments of anything you conceive and are intensely interested in. Don’t be disappointed if something doesn’t work. That is what you want to know—the truth about everything—and then the truth about combinations of things. Some combinations have such logic and integrity that they can work coherently despite non-working elements embraced by their system.

You will find the world responding to your earnest initiative.
