“Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.” – Dale Carnegie
This quote was a bit revelatory for me. It shouldn’t have been, but it was. It makes sense though, when I work hard, at something worthwhile and authentic I am often energized (not fatigued… ).
How often do you feel energized by hard work? (Besides exercise?) If the answer is “not very,” you owe it to yourself to look at your work, or your approach/attitude towards it.
