Soon after the success of The Office in the USA, Ricky Gervais said,
“Every morning I woke up I was weighed down by emails, text messages and voice mails with the word “urgent” in. Good morning had become good mourning for me.
I realized that I was spending less and less time doing what made me feel good.
So each morning, I now make sure that my diary is full of stuff that makes me feel good. This usually involves talking to people that make me laugh and creating stuff that makes people laugh.
I now give myself the time and space to be human again, to be me, and not give a sh1t about what other people think I should be doing.”
As someone once said, “The main thing, is to keep the main thing the main thing.” If you do this, everything else has a habit of falling into place.
A chicken walks into a bar. The barman says, “Sorry, we don’t serve chickens here. Try the place across the road.”
I was going to quit all my bad habits, but then I remembered that no one likes a quitter.
Live big & love deep.
