Overworking is the pitfall of the tireless

Came back home exhausted, stupid with a desire to sleep, a vision of the abyss. Lie in bed, unable to fall asleep, crawl back up and talk with Solomon for a while. Ideas of life, of success.

Dinner with Wangwen jun tonight, talking about life. Career faire was at Brown today, throw on a suit and mignle for an hour, shaking hands and smiling, telling people about a possible start-up accelerator at Brown. That’s one way when I am most alive, feel the coursing of energy, with some definable mission, some definable goal. Take the mission away, and collapse, eyes clouding over from sleep derprivation. Enough. Learn to say no.


What is important in life? What matters to me?

I want to change the world. How? Why?

Because I am ambitious? Because I feel like I can make a difference?

Because the world is there, and I am here, and there is no expression of my will to power greater than to leave some lasting imprint on the world.

If you are not having fun, you are not doing it right.
If you are not having fun, you are not doing it right.


Find what you enjoy, do it. Everything else is just filler!

Of vital importance is the ability to “tiao jie xin qing”. Of being able to change one’s mood, through conscious choice.
