The Best Way

It is pretty common for people to think that their way is the best way. That you should react and respond as they would. That what motivates them should motivate you. So if you are more motivated to work than your colleagues, don’t judge them, because you don’t want them to judge you, either. Your right to work a 60-hour week is only as valid as the next person’s right to work 40.

I don’t want to show you how to reset your life so yours can be just like mine. You don’t need to be living my life — I do. I don’t need to be living your life — you do.

You don’t need to be living according to anyone else’s definition of purpose and fulfillment. The only thing that matters is what you think and how you set your boundaries to honor what matters to you.

There are always times in life when we are way out of balance. Just ask an air conditioner repairman in the middle of August or the parent of a newborn. That’s how it goes. But over time, if you realize you are living in a single dimension and that is not enough, look inside yourself. Are you deliberately making choices about how you are spending your life? Have you set the necessary boundaries that can give you more control? Are you living by design or by default?
