Maker, Watcher or Wonderer?

    I saw a nice quote this morning, just felt like sharing.

    "In life, some people make things happen, some people watch things happening, and some people wonder what happened."

    Which are you?

      Marisa what a great quote.
      I have been a maker all my life long now I'm tired and would like to become a watcher but it just hasn't happened yet...

    Maybe it's just in human nature that we all like to believe we're "makers', but I think I'm very much a "maker".  Sometimes the drawback to that is that the thing one makes is a big mess, though.  lol  When we make things happen, however, it can be worth those occasional messes we make (sort of, I think - maybe).   hmm

    I'm a watcher for sure...let other people do all the hard work! tongue

      I think being a watcher is a legitimate choice - some people get a lot of pleasure out of being a spectator!

    FP - so you are big_smile .... lucky you!
    Ahhhhh - I guess I'm a maker - sometimes I wish I weren't!

    I think I would most accurately fall under the category of "a watcher with the tendency to wonder"

    Great question! I'm a "watcher" currently transitioning into a "maker". smile

    I watch; but based on what I've observed, I then predict what it is likely to happen.  If I don't want what's likely to happen that's when I'll do what I can to make something else happen.  If I like what it is likely to happen I may try to make it happen sooner, or turn my attention to a different prediction (that I don't like) and try to make something happen "in that department".  I never stop spinning my wheels, watching, predicting, and making - which, I must say, can be very tiring.  lol

    I make things happen as I always tell my kids no one is ever going to come knocking on the door with a hand out. Hard work will always win.

      Hi helen, did you notice that we both have 199 fans and we both published 37 hubs???

        Helen Caterposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Wow we are twins. but I had 200 fans yesterday as someone pointed out so I have had a drop out lol. No worries I am sure it will increase. I just wrote two hubs over the last few days and published a few mins ago so that is an omen is it not?
