Alright, slight twist on this one, just for the sake of seeing how much a word matters.
Doing anything will get you somewhere.
Doing nothing is selfish.
I'm still sticking to mine.
Everything is selfish, and given the fact that you are the only one inside your own consciousness and will be the one to deal with your death when it comes, why is selfishness considered a bad thing? Being a hazard to others existence is another matter, and taking your own existence as supremely important to yourself is another thing. We will always be selfish until and unless we fall into a consciousness where there is no self. If there is a self then the consciousness that is bound around it has nothing but itself as the constant unchanging reference point, and it cant be anything but selfish.
As for to the answer to this thread - my answer is neither doing nothing nor doing anything - it is not doing.
everything might be selfish but nothing definitely isn't
