Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is supposed to be one of the most influential books of our generation, with it being recommended over and over again by people of different backgrounds and interests.
I’ve been telling myself I’d read it for years now, and this week I finally got around to it. Very much early days still, but I do want to share one short snippet from it that I found quite intriguing.
When you want to hurry something, that means you no longer care about it and want to get on to other things.
I liked this because anything that I really love doing, I make the time for. If I can’t make the time, I just don’t do it. I’d rather skip it all together then do a half assed and rushed job.
Compared to things I hate doing? Man I rush the hell out of those. I couldn’t care less how they get done so long as it gets done.
I figured it was something worth thinking about. Something worth sharing. It makes me excited about the rest of this book!
I’ll report back with more once I get it finished!
