Try to work so you will be able to live your life in tranquility. -Ronaldo (from the documentary 'happy')
Work to live, not live to work, that is sage advice. Personally, I put in a great number of hours at my job. That gives me the opportunity to take a month off and see the world. I know the media says, 'work hard, and you will be able to reach for the stars.' That is how news anchors, television and movie actors, professional athletes, ect... get to where they are. We think we want to be that, to have a great deal of money and fame, that will make us happy? I guess we get to chose what makes us happy and work toward it. I can work more, and thus vacation more, or work less, and maybe enjoy everyday life more. We have a choice, and that is???
