🤔 Why Do Anything? 🙄 Nº67– Cycling, Startups & Sales ✌🏻️
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #67 • View online
The Gospel of Philip is one of the Gnostic Gospels, a text of New Testament apocrypha, dated to around the 3rd century but lost in modern times until an Egyptian man rediscovered it by accident, buried in a cave near Nag Hammadi, in 1945. I didn’t know that, did you?
Well, philosopher Costica Bradatan has given these 3rd century Gospels some thought. And he asks: “Why do anything? Why multiply the cosmic failure, the “infamy of creation”?”
“Procrastination and mourning are tied tightly together: for to procrastinate is to mourn the precariousness of your creation even before you bring it into the world.” - Costica Bradatan
TL;DR?
“We should perhaps spend more time dwelling on the rich virtuality that precedes the fall into existence.”  However, it’s not a thing if it remains just an idea. Eventually, you should just ship it!
Still pondering the beauty of things before they become things? Here is a countering idea on why being on a downer can really help to get things done. Wanna procrastinate more? Look inside the mind of a master procrastinator. ; )
As always, thanks for reading!
