Blissfully effective: Yes

Painfully efficient: No

Get your gain without pain.

For this thought must work harder than muscle.

To work out smart you favor insight over ache, attention over effort.

You study limit, you don’t break it.

If you race against yourself, you will eventually break. If your last best is the limit to be broken, breaking your very best will break you.

Half your own

November 15, 2009

While you are alone you are entirely your own master and
if you have one companion you are but half your own and the less
so in proportion to the indiscretion of his behavior.

Leonardo da Vinci, c. 1500
