Playing with nuances

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“Who do you want to be?
Who do you want to become?

Which question is better?”

“There are many ways you can think of them, based on the meaning you give them. 

For instance:

To be means to manifest/embody something in the moment.
eg In situation x you act in a certain way.

To become means to form a persistent pattern of being.
eg In every situation x you act in a certain way.

In this view, the two complement one another.

The first question expresses the Micro.
The second, the Macro.

We could rephrase the two thus:

Who do you want to be now?
Who do you want to persistently be?”
