So I Do


I want to travel frequently and spend the vast majority of my days learning and having new experiences.

So I do.

I want to build things that will incite change and impact people in a positive way.

So I do.

I want to exchange my value for the value of others, making enough money in the process to be more than comfortable and to have enough influence to make change where I think it’s necessary (and to help others do the same).

So I do.

I want to surround myself with people who inspire me and who I can form strong relationships with – whether that means friending or frolicking or fucking or figuring out solutions to problems we want to solve – and add my strengths to theirs to see what we can come up with and improve each others’ lives.

So I do.

I want to live a life that worth writing about, think things work talking about and experience things worth remembering.

So I do.

I want to tell others who want things that it’s great to have ambitions, but that without taking that next step – without DOING – nothing else changes.

So I do.

Do you?


  1. I do, more each day. Any work it requires to move to this point is well worth it, as the results are amazing! (and getting better)

  2. Amen! Taking action is most important ingredient in getting things accomplished (and sometimes action is the hardest part, as we get caught up in our daily routines or analysis paralysis). Hope you’re enjoying Iceland.

  3. made me think about how I kept telling myself “so do i” instead of going “so I do”. the arrangement of those 3 words really affected the end result.

  4. Do I?
    I often times do not. However, quite a bit has changed lately.
    I’ve got my possessions in order. (reduced the number tremendously.)
    I’ve got newer, clearer ideas.
    I’ve got my priorities straight.

    I think I’m heading in the right direction and beginning to figure things out. :]

    Thanks for the post. I wish you the best in Iceland.

  5. Stellar desires Colin, and it’s excellent you have the mindset and the ability to make these things happen. I share your sentiments :)

  6. Ah, the difference between “wanting” something and actually doing it. It’s a simple solution to a common problem. It cracks me up when people have 54 excuses for why they don’t do something. I live in Wisconsin, and every November or so, everyone around me complains about the snow. “I wish I lived in [insert warmer state here]”. I always respond the same way: “So why don’t you?” And then they respond with something about their job or their family, and it basically comes down to nothing. Drives me insane. And I like snow, so…
