Working to Live or Living to Work?

Posted By:

Why do you study? Is it to get good grades? Or is it to lay a foundation upon which your dreams can be built?

Why do you work? Is it to pay bills? Or is it to celebrate your gifts with the world daily?

Perhaps your answer is a little bit of both, and perhaps that’s okay. Intention is what matters: Mindfully uncovering your unique genius-- your unique offering to the world-- and working to live it to the fullest, instead of living just to work.

This inspiring video by @PrinceEa invites us to take a moment and reflect on just that: the moment. Online high school students have a unique opportunity to discover their dreams in a different way. They can customize their education to meet their requirements, so that the bricks laid to carry their dreams won’t sink worthlessly into the sand after graduation. The job of a student is not just to learn multiplication tables, it is also to learn how to build a life made of moments, instead of moments lost to life.

Today, consider taking a moment to ask yourself: Why do you study? Why do you work? Are you working to live? Or living to work?

“See, in this chaotic world, everything goes so fast. We’re so busy, seems like everyone’s middle name is Multitask… Life, ladies and gentlemen, is all about moments. No one in history has ever been able to hold onto one.” - Prince Ea
