Good and tired

Being tired from doing something feels a whole lot better than being tired of doing nothing. If you’re going to be tired at the end of each day, then make it really count for something.

If you’re weary, perhaps it’s not because you’re doing too much. Perhaps it’s because you’re not at all invested in what you’re doing.

A difficult challenge that’s aligned with your purpose will generate far more energy in you than an easy task that has no real meaning for you. You can accomplish much more when what you’re accomplishing is what you care about.

When your body is tired, a good night’s sleep will revive you. When your spirit is weary, you’ll need something more.

You have a unique voice and a unique purpose that are longing to be expressed. Start living that expression and you’ll find an endless source of energy flowing through your life.

Get yourself good and tired with focused, disciplined work on a purpose that connects with who you truly are. And you’ll find that each day you have even more energy than the day before.

— Ralph Marston
