Meeting a friend in the corridor, Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) said: “Tell me, why do people always say that it was natural for men to assume that the sun went around the earth rather than the earth was rotating?”
His friend said: “Well, obviously, because it just looks as if the sun is going around the earth.”
To which the philosopher replied: “Well, what would it look like if it had looked as if the earth were rotating?”
Just as I was thinking:
I’m tired of not acting until I have a template for action, a plan that’ll see me through, and I’m proceeding even if it implies missteps and inefficiency. Trust the universe? Trust Tom Mullaly.
“Nothing bothers me more than sloth. The objective is to fix mistakes of ambition and not make mistakes of sloth. I work my ass off.”
