Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.
Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.
You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.
John C. Maxwell
The meaning of life is that it is to be lived, and it is not to be traded and conceptualized and squeezed into pattern of systems.
There are uses for systems and routines, but you have to be careful not to get stuck in them.
It is about spontaneity, living in the present and enjoying every single day with a clear mind. Routines do not necessarily destroy these ambitions, but they often make it very hard to just live and enjoy it.
The speech/text by David Foster Wallace alone is already absolutely incredible, but the video makes it even better. Enjoy and take something out of it:
I believe that all of us have the capacity for one adventure inside us, but great adventure is facing responsibility day after day.
Charles William Gordon
