#Idea – Work / 16.11.18

If your work provides no meaning, or joy to you
You are wasting your life at it.

Or at least
You are wasting the part of your life
That you spend working.

“If one wanted to crush and destroy a man entirely, to mete out to him the most terrible punishment, all one would have to do would be to make him do work that was completely and utterly devoid of usefulness and meaning.” – Fyodor Dostoevsky

#Idea – On ‘Taking’ the Offence That People Offer You / 14.10.18

If you take offence where none was intended
You have chosen to take something that is offered to you.

That is entirely your choice,
Your problem
And no one else’s.

Unless,
Having taken offence
You go so far as to make this someone else’s problem.

This is how we conjure new problems out of thin air.
