Simple philosophy

Every once a while, I find it nice to stumble upon simple philosophy to focus my mind.

This week (month?)’s line came to me yesterday as I caught myself pondering about some unknowns – “Work hard, learn and don’t take life too seriously.”

There’s not much we control. All we can do is keep giving things our best shot and keep getting better so what we do adds more value and, hopefully, is more enjoyable.

Once we’re able to do that, it helps to keep a bit of perspective. Life is shorter than we think.. and the frowns, anger, irritation and envy are generally not worth it.

PS: I realize this isn’t all that profound – hence the “simple” in the title. 🙂
