It seems that people are running just to stand still.
I’m going to propose something very radical here – Be very, very happy then do everything you have time to do after that!
People inevitably do the opposite, asking too much of themselves in terms of time and effort, burning the candle at both ends then beat themselves up because they’re not feeling cheerful. How can we have a cheerful attitude when we’re feeling exhausted?
It’s a question of balance, such an underated word and condition, yet balance is the key to sustained energy and sustained cheerfulness.
