The older I get more I realize that life is made up of more things that you can’t control and fewer things that you can. In fact, the number of things that are under our control and that we can control are few and far between.
And besides, how successful have you been in your attempts to control everything? Probably like me – pretty poor and the result has never been what you wanted or expected.
We are out of control – not in the sense like that of a child with a tantrum but simply the fact that we are not in it.
The few things we can successfully manage are vitally important then – in fact, they will prove to be the things the help set you a part as well as the things that will enable you to survive. Things like your health, exercise, and how much work you say “Yes” to, not just the number of contracts but also the hours in each day you work.
These are under your control. Manage them well.
