Business and Entrepreneurship, Pursuing Your Passion

building versus doing

When I was contemplating quitting my full-time job earlier this year, one thing made it abundantly clear that I needed to leave: I wasn’t building anything.

When you’re building, you construct a foundation for yourself. Each time you sit down to work, you continue to add to this foundation.

When you’re merely doing, you sit down, check things off your to-do list, go home, and repeat the same things all over again the next day.

Building elevates you — each time you work, you rise higher and closer to your goals.

Doing gets you nowhere — you stay on the ground floor.

Are you building, or are you just doing?
