THE LURE OF THE DISTANT AND THE DIFFICULT IS DECEPTIVE. THE GREAT OPPORTUNITY IS WHERE YOU ARE. - JOHN BURROUGHS

If you don’t burn out at the end of each day, you’re a bum! People watching me work ask me all the time why I’m not burnt out, how (especially now at my age) I manage to keep going. The fact is, I’m totally burnt out at the end of each day because I’ve given myself totally to my work - mentally, psychologically, physically. When I head home at night I can’t see straight. But I love that feeling of utter depletion: It is an ecstatic sense of having committed myself to the absolute limit. But after recharging at night, I’m ready to go the next morning. Isn’t that what life is all about?
