How > What

This post will take you about 1 minute to read.


You are not what you do.

What you are is how you do it.

I’ve been chewing on this idea for awhile.

Maybe forever?

I’ve always believed the context of any situation is more important.

That perception isn’t really reality.

That the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.


So what’s the what?

The what is the result.

It’s the outcome.

The what is the effect.

It’s the conclusion.

Aftermath.

The what doesn’t tell a story.

Only an ending.


And the how?

The how is the process.

The technique.

The how explains the cause.

Not the effect.

It’s the juicy details.

The how is the method.

Not the madness.

The how tells the story.

The plot.


Be skeptical of the what.

And curious of the how.

Because you are not what you do.

What you are is how you do it.
