“At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: “I have to go to work — as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for — the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?”
~ Marcus Aurelius
I clearly remember teaching grade 9 students, a physics lesson on Work. The postulated formula:
Work = Force X Distance
Work = Force X Displacement
I wish I was more creative and thoughtful to understand — that we were not actually solving 10’s and 100’s of science numerical for mere 2 marks, but rather dealing with life’s one of the most profound lessons.
I’m sure you know what I want to put on the table.
A piece of unsolicited advice — Work! And persevere!
