Awhile ago, I was shown this video. I don’t often use the words “life changing” but this speech by David Foster Wallace is just that.
As we grow older and settle into the seeming monotony of day-to-day life, it is easy to be sucked into a vortex of boredom, cynicism and and impatience. Everything and everyone around us can feel like an inconvenience. I’ve found I need to regularly remind myself that I must “make a conscious decision about how to think.”
Please take ten minutes out of your day to watch this video and truly listen to the words.
