“The only person you are in competition with is yourself. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to first realize that even if you win the rat race…you’re still a rat! Even if you think you have it all, someone will always have more than you. Does that make you less of a person and that someone more of a person? Slowly begin stripping – not your clothes, but your connections to the devices and things that keep you on virtual life support. Take a real dare and don’t answer your email for at least 15 seconds after it arrives…Bottom line is, in order to go from surviving to thriving, you have to remove yourself from the stimuli that cause the mind to be in survival mode – like riding a metal bullet every day for years on end to the corner office on the 104th floor.”
John St. Augustine, in “Living an Uncommon Life”
