Everybody is aware, in a certain measure, of the different truths life provides us with. One of them, which is also the scariest, is related to the fact that eventually, we all die.
One of the biggest truths you will ever come to realize is that hard work, ambition and targets give actual meaning to your life.
Furthermore, once you have given a purpose to your work, you will most certainly see that motivation goes a long way into making someone's life more interesting to live.

If you're working like crazy, getting straight to work on your most important tasks may be better than cluttering up my morning with different tasks.
