Personally, I get more satisfaction from being...but it seems that in our crazy and hectic world, there's so much that needs doing that we never get a chance to just be. I think it's so important sometimes to set the world aside and allow yourself just to be. Get to know yourself in the silence and solitude that can be found in stopping every now and again, and you can find out what a beautiful human BEING you actually are.
I agree to Motown2, this is a great question.
Personally I believe that taking some time out for yourself, relaxing and finding your inner-self is very good but this relaxing and leisure time is only satisfying after an accomplishment.
As a human we never can be satisfied without the feeling of achievement -- a feeling that we have also contributed something.
I would say doing is more satisfying for me personally. A lot of people can be. It seems harder to do the right thing sometimes.
I personally get more satisfaction by doing because thrue that I can learn new things and feel proud of myself.
This is a good question.
So many of us seem to rush-about being human-doings that it's nice to balance things out by being human-beings too.
I think there's satisfaction in both being and doing. 'Or' is a bore!

Why are people so concerned about their heritage/ancestry?I am not asking this question to be mean. I am just curious. Personally, I know that my ancestors came from Germany. I am satisfied with knowing that. I don't need to know specifics of 100 or 200 years ago. That part of my ancestry doesn't...
