If travelling long distances, it makes sense.
Rachel drives me around a lot. I feel as though it might be adversely affecting my manhood.
Oh. I rather didn't get the point of this post, obviously.
Anika - don't take any notice of them. They know what I mean.
A visitor to our shores said to be recently: my goodness what a lot of Pelagians you all are. You are so DRIVEN. Even asking 'should we be?' kind says it all, doesn't it?
Yes it does. We're wondering if striving for driven-ness is counterproductive for many who aren't naturally super ambitious. What does hard working contentedness look like?
To be honest, I think there's a difference between the word and its meaning. That is, I suspect I could be accused of being driven, but I'd never use the word to describe myself, or the indicators that would lead someone to use it. I guess I think it's ruled out because of its connotations. So, taking Michael's visitor on - hey, it might look like I'm driven, but that's not how I think of it. I'd prefer to say I'm working hard at being faithful. I think there's a nuance: driven is about goals, whereas I'm aiming at getting the means right. Dunno if that helps any.
I neither look driven (that I know of) nor feel driven.I feel "pulled along" if anything.
I think its all about motive and self-understanding.
I am ploddy with the Big Issues, and extremely driven with the seemingly inconsequential.
'seemingly inconsequential'! - Many people would consider inconsequential the things I am extremely driven about. Writing a song at the moment for kids at school to sing. It's in 7/8 time and I have spent far too long getting it just right...
I'm with you. I say 'seemingly' because to most people it'd seem like I have bigger fish to fry, and other priorities. But for me, this is the stuff that really excites and interests me.I say if you need to get your 7/8 time just right, there's no such thing as too long.
