Also, the success rate of accomplishing either among the general population is equal to the probability that you’re Princess Leia’s twelfth cousin. And the most striking similarity between the two is the way we go about them—most people think that both require tons of self-discipline to pull off. The canonical…

We live in a very tired world. Over 60 percent of workers in America suffer from burnout and extreme fatigue. And things are not better in other countries either. In case you haven’t tried it, I assure you that getting burned out is the fastest way to downgrade your quality of life. If you want to experience a rapid downfall in your creativity, productivity, and well-being, just get insanely busy, heap a senseless number of…
