Quality Over Quantity. . .

The quality of your actions matters. Do everything with care. Pick up and put down objects as if you respect them. Don’t just drop yourself into a seat, sit down with purpose.

Respect your time. Spend your time on things that put you into a better situation in life, on things that make you more capable, rather than on things that make you feel good for the moment. You will love yourself for doing this!

Love Your Work. . .

I personally failed to understand a simple concept for at least half of my life. I always chased the money required to buy the things that I thought would bring me happiness.

Working a job for which you have no passion is betraying yourself, for eight hours a day. Nobody can love themselves while they subject themselves to forty hours of uninspiring work every week. If it isn’t practical to leave your current line of work just yet, start planning your escape now! That’s love. That’s respect! Do not resign a third of your life to someone else’s purpose.
