All the different flavors

Keep up with current events, but don’t let them overwhelm your awareness. Treasure the moment, but don’t get so lost in it that you abandon your responsibilities.

Live with balance. Invest time in focused effort, and enjoy time in carefree relaxation.

You can engage the power of momentum without being obsessive about it. Be diligent about your work, but don’t let that diligence disconnect you from the rest of life.

Put your full focus into what you’re doing. Then stop after a while and do something completely different.

Enjoy being with others, and enjoy some time alone. Delight in exciting, thrilling, challenging pursuits, and treasure moments of quiet contemplation.

Nothing is enjoyable or productive if it’s the only thing you ever do. Live with balance, and benefit from tasting all the different flavors on life’s menu.

— Ralph Marston
