“Life’s too short” is repeated often enough to be a cliche, but this time it’s true. You don’t have enough time to be both unhappy and mediocre. It’s not just pointless, it’s painful. Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you ought to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.”

Where you live has a bigger impact on happiness and health than you might imagine  — an interesting article by Jenny Rough for the Washington Post.

Ms. Rough discusses the concepts of GEOmedicine (where you live influences your health), friendships (the importance of friends to our health) and moving (the negative impact moving has on our health because it’s a disruption of patterns).

    • Thanks for the feedback, Jamie Cordon. Inspiration helps us pursue all of the aspirations in our life. We’re currently reading Simon Sinek’s, “Start with Why.” Sinek distinguishes between formal authority that uses manipulation to motivate and leaders that inspire. Inspiration produces better results as individuals and for teams or cultures. We love motivational TED talks too.
