Are You a Human Being or a Human Doing?

Being human is more than just doing things. Believing, behaving, and being present in the moment are essential to our humanity.

The distinction between being a human being and a human doing is an important one. While both are essential aspects of our lives and business, they represent different ways of living and experiencing the world.

Being a human doing is all about achieving goals, getting things done, and being productive. It’s about being efficient, effective, and successful. Its about doing things. While there is nothing wrong with being a human doing, it’s important to remember that we are more than just our accomplishments. We are complex beings with a wide range of emotions, thoughts, and experiences.

Being a human being, on the other hand, is about finding meaning and purpose in life. It’s about being present in the moment, connecting with others, and experiencing who we really want to be.

If you want to BE a certain way, you have to BElieve, BEhave, and embody the qualities that define that way of BEing. For example, if you want to be a an olympic swimmer, you have to believe you are and behave as if you are an olympic swimmer. You have to be the person who is in the pool at 4:00 AM. You have to be the person who eats a healthy athlete’s diet. You have to be the person that gets the needed rest. To have the things you want you not only have to do the things to get them, but you have to be the type of person to get them. Be X Do = Have.

In conclusion, we are human beings, not just human doings. While it’s important to be productive and achieve our goals, it’s equally important to find meaning and purpose in life, connect with others, and find who we really want to be. By embodying the qualities that define our desired way of being, we can create a more fulfilling and meaningful life for ourselves and those around us.
