From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.

in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.

In family life, be completely present.

A leader is best when people barely know he exists;
when his work is done, his aim fulfilled,
they will say: we did it ourselves.

take their work seriously,
