A useful question

Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn founded and directed the stress-reduction clinic at Massachusetts General Hospital. His program follows the principles of the discipline of Mindfulness. Kabat-Zinn suggests that we ask of every endeavor that causes us stress, “Is it worth dying for?”

from "The Near Enemies," by Dr. Edward Frost.

  1. I always ask of every endeavor (stressful or not), "Is it worth it?" And I almost always answer "No." Then I do it anyway. Hahhaha..
