what to do.. hmmm

I use to think my mailbox was always full. Now that I have nothing better to do than wait for email, i've changed my mind. I pretty much just sit here and think about stuff.

I got to thinking about the differences between myself and others..

Most ppl i know that are successful in life go by a code of "keep it simple". I'm speaking of 'successful' in terms of achieving goals. I think maybe this is where i'm having a hard time. I've noticed that i'm never looking at the road under my feet and what is next. I think only of what could be. I notice that many projects go unfinished.. i always say i'll have time to do that later. That of course never happens, something always comes up. Lately i've starting thinking with the idea of "If i don't do it now, it'll never get done." This has helped prevent a lot of those "oh shit.." situations.

Mike and i were talking once, a long time ago.. He said he knew me very well, and of course i said, "naa.. it takes years and years." He said, "When you say that you'll be there in a sec, you mean 5 minutes. When you say you'll be there in a minute, thats actually like a few hours."

So, if a person can see a trait like that as being "me". If i were to change that would i start to become someone else? Would i be bettering myself, or just changing into someone else? Of course this is just an example, it could be one or many of any traits a person has.

They say that every single cell in the body is replaced every seven years (though it is a continuous process). So if your body is a COMPLETELY different body every seven years, i wonder what kind of effect that has on the mind. We are the same ppl that have been carried over to a new body. Does the specific arangement of our brains cells determine who we are? Maybe it doesn't matter how are brains have formed.. maybe we are made up from our memories. Our memories create a unique personality from conclusions of things we have seen and been told. But twins who grow up together, who never leave each others sides, somehow turn out VERY different. Oh well whatever..

It's time to clean house.. before I put it off till tomorrow.
