paying lip service

Ideas and words have no inherent value.

We can say what we like. We can espouse certain beliefs. We can simply regurgitate the thoughts of others, taking credit in their place.

That’s the easy work. It sounds impressive. It gets you the plaudits.

But it doesn’t get you anywhere.

We have to live it.

I’ve been guilty of this recently. I’ve been taking in ideas from plenty of different sources. I’ve even thought how it might be relevant to my life, how it might take me further in the direction I want to go.

I haven’t acted though.

Time to change that. Time to pay more than lip service.
