“There is no force inherent in living matter, no vital force independent of and differing from the cosmic forces; the energy which living matter gives off is counterbalanced by the energy which it receives.” William Thomas Councilman
If we are to consistently to out perform ourselves, that is to accomplish beyond our expectations, we need to conserve our resources and energy. You can’t accomplish much if you are “too pooped to pop.”
Thomas Edison had what seemed like an endless source of energy, working day and night year in and year out. But Edison had a trick. It was called the short nap. He rested before he was at complete exhaustion.
Robert Lewis Stevenson never was well enough to work, not having a well day in his short life. But he accomplished much by using the resources the Good Lord had given him. He died in Tahiti in French Polynesia, hoping to improve his health there. He died in 1854 at the age of 44.
Don’t work yourself to exhaustion. Take a break!
