Day 42: Whenever I’m freaking out about something at work and end up calling up my colleague Scott for guidance, he’d calmly say “So first of all, nobody died”, before moving on to guiding me with whatever problems I’d have at hand.
Fame, fortune, validation… we crave for these things even though we all end our days in our beds with our eyes closed. We constantly chase after some arbitrary numbers: in weight, dollars, and Facebook Likes, meanwhile the things that matter are waiting beyond our cubicles, sitting on the back burner.
Life is great if you know how to let go.
