“It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. Life is long if you know how to use it.”

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Our happiness is a byproduct of our thoughts but focusing on only having positive thoughts is unrealistic. Instead, focus on not dwelling on the negative ones.

We judge because we want to know the answer before we understand the challenge. The first step in moving past judgement is releasing the need for an answer.

We are creatures of habit. Whether those habits serve us or hinder us is the difference between being happy or being stuck in a life where we merely exist.

We do plenty of activities that do not contribute to the fullness of our life, some of them are mandatory but others are optional. Understanding how you spend your time makes it simpler to choose to do things that lend value to it, and that even makes the mandatory tasks easier to do.
