Benedict Cumberbatch​: Make Your Own World

Benedict Cumberbatch​ - Do

Benedict Cumberbatch sings the praises of checking out from the world once in a while, and stepping back from our fixations on overthinking, to just do.


"Learn to say 'Fuck you' to the world every once in a while. You have every right to. Just stop thinking, worrying, looking over your shoulder, wondering, doubting, fearing, hurting, hoping for some easy way out, struggling, grasping, confusing, itching, scratching, mumbling, bumbling, grumbling, humbling, stumbling, numbling, rambling, gambling, tumbling, scumbling, scrambling, hitching, hatching, bitching, moaning, groaning, honing, boning, horse shitting, hair splitting, nit picking, piss tricking, nose sticking, ass gouging, eyeball poling, finger pointing, alleyway sneaking, long waiting, small stepping, evil eyeing, back scratching, searching, perching, besmirching, grinding, grinding, grinding away at yourself. Stop it and just do.

"Don't worry about cool. Make your own un-cool. Make your own. Make your own world. If you fear, make it work for you. Draw and paint your fear and anxiety and stop worrying about big deep things such as to decide on a purpose and way of life, a consistent approach to even some impossible end or even an unimagined end. You must practice being stupid, dumb, unthinking, empty. Then you will be able to do. You are not responsible for the world. You're only responsible for your work, so just do it."
