The Double-Edged Sword Of Effort

Wield it responsibly

When life is crazy busy, it’s easy to fantasise about doing nothing at all. Lying on a beach, lolling on the sofa, propping up the bar.

Have you ever tried doing absolutely nothing?

Done right — meditation, reflection, sleep — it’s great. Done wrong — aimless vegging out, it actually gets you down more than being busy.
