Beach Walk 638 – To Make a Choice

Just about every weekend I have this dilemma at least one of the two mornings: get up early and do a bunch of things I want to do or stay in bed, read and “do nothing.” Both are very appealing, and I find myself going through all sorts of contortions trying to decide, then trying to be comfortable with my decision.

It dawned on me that this pressure associated with choice, often drives a range of forced rationalizing and attempted formulas, when in reality, it just doesn’t matter. No reasons required. Just be here now.

Please welcome and check out our show sponsor, Primo Water. Primo Water is a new, environmentally-friendly water bottled in a natural plastic made from plants, a renewable resource grown on American soil.

Hawaiian word:
Koho: choice, to choose

  1. Hi Rox,
    Double-plus good show today. Perfect day, good lighting, good topic, great camera work and of course, attractive “talent”. 🙂

    I had to chuckle when you said, “The older I get, the more I realize….”. It’s been true for me, too. You really do get over feeling that everything matters so much. I experience it as not feeling that I have to prove anything to anyone anymore, least of all myself. 🙂

  2. you are right it is a bit of a dilemma to decide whether much needed sleep should win out over chores or work…I find the time of year or the weather plays a part in the decision making…when its cold and snowy theres not much to do outside so its usually a good time to catch up on rest…conversely in the summer its great to get up early do the chores and end up at the pool with a beverage…I suspect if I lived 5 minutes to the beach it would greatly influence my decision…I second Joe’s comments on how perfect everything looked in the piece…maholo

  3. @Joe and @Bob – Mahalo for the comments on the show. It’s was a rocky “intro” as I wanted to get the amazing light and mountains in the background and their green against the incredible blue sky. Then a bunch of people showed up and we had to shoot it “wiki wiki” and so it’s not at all what I wanted….

    Just goes to the point of the show. You both commented on how great it looked and all I could see was the “failed” intro idea. I’m constantly working on “good enuf is good enuf” and to not sweat the details when it really doesn’t matter.

    I’m my own worst critic and a lot of time that leads me to inaction because I can’t make something (what I consider to be) perfect.

  4. Don’t sweat it Shane…look at the first few shows and see the progression…my guess is that Speilberg went from simple and basic to complex or advanced…you do an amazing job

    To do or not to do is a choice. A choice is always made regardless of what you do.
