Bored when you know too much. Anxious when you know too little.
The good news is that you can’t control the universe. Acknowledging your powerlessness should set you free instead of trying to float onto absolutes.
Writes lifehacker Darius Foroux:
Lighten up. Relax your muscles. Get rid of that tense face. Don’t worry. And have faith in yourself.
Every minute that you’re investing in yourself will have a return. You just don’t know when that is.
Maybe it’s tomorrow, or maybe it’s in 10 years.
Who knows if your most electrifying life and work are yet to come or shit’s going to hit the fan.
But if you’re reading this, chances are you’re probably worth fighting for.
The quest for self-improvement at least brings novelty, even if the impact is rarely immediate.
