I do not wish to expiate, but to live. My life is for itself and not for a spectacle. I much prefer that it should be of a lower strain, so it be genuine and equal, than that it should be glittering and unsteady. I wish it to be sound and sweet, and not to need diet and bleeding. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Think about the type of person you’d NEVER want to be 5 years from now. Write out your own personal recipe to prevent this from happening and commit to following it. “Thought is the seed of action.”
How about we focus on the person we SHOULDN’T be today? And focus on fixing it now …
I’d like to laugh a little more, be a little less critical (of others and myself), and focus less on the cash and more on the work (getting the focus the wrong way around leads to neither happiness or great work).
