The easiest, most convenient way to snap out of unhappiness is to focus on gratitude for what we already have.
It is not that you failed. You just stopped.
Lifetime employment is dead and the days of working for one company for 40 years have long gone; We’re all freelancers now. Think like one.
The pursuit of perfection is a form of procrastination. If you’re really serious about making things happen this year, seek progress, not perfection.
Similar to how wheels build up speed when spun consistently, the key to success is consistent effort in one direction.
