On having a life

No one who ever did anything with their life did so by ‘chilling out’ or ‘having a life’. The people who left a mark on the world were people who slogged and slogged and slogged. They loved slogging. They worked their asses off. That is why you remember them. So ‘chill out’ all you want. But don’t expect to be remembered after your death by anyone other than your children. And no. Your grandchildren won’t remember much of you either. One generation after your death, you will be extinct.
