What is the pot of gold that justifies spending the best years of your life hoping for happiness in the last?
1983 - Nearly fail kindergarten because I refuse to learn the alphabet. My teacher refuses to explain why I should learn it, opting instead for "I'm the teacher - that's why." I tell her that's stupid and ask her to leave me alone so I can focus on drawing sharks. She sends me to the "bad table" instead and makes me eat a bar of soap. Disdain for authority begins.
Focus on being productive instead of busy.
'Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.' - Benjamin Disraeli, former British Prime Minister.
How is it possible that all people in the world need exactly 8 hours to accomplish their work? It isn't. 9-5 is arbitrary.
