The missing gear in life

Most people live as if they only have two gears in life:

  • Work: doing stuff you don’t feel like doing
  • Play: doing stuff you do feel like doing

Most people only shift between those two gears. But they’re missing a gear.

  • Rest: doing nothing

Without purposely shifting between all three gears, most people fall apart. Without work, we forfeit progress. Without play, we sacrifice purpose. Without rest, we burn out.

But with all three, we thrive.
