Words to live by in 2009

A very good friend just shared this quote with me. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I found it to be inspiring and, well… majestic. It’s too grand not to share. My first 13 days of 2009 have been exciting, profitable, and enlightening. This quote will fit in nicely with those themes. I hope you find that it does the same in your life.

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.

Thanks, Shinil… Glad you found it to be a good one. And speaking of a “good one” I hope you’re having a phenomenal ‘09 so far. Let me know how things are going with you when you get a chance, buddy.

Thanks, PP. And I’ve had this domain for a while. All the cool kids have their own domain names. Get with the program, bro ;-)

Obviously the best scenario involves you doing what you love and getting paid for that. Unfortunately not many people can do that and that’s really sad.

So what if it’s cheesy …it’s true! And that’s what matters in the end, right ?
Unfortunately I doubt I’ll ever be able to reach mastery in the art of living, I care too much about my work and too little about personal life …
