How To Live On Twenty-Four Hours A Day

T xs N1osT important preliminary to the task of arranging one's life so that one may live fully and comfortably within one's daily budget of 24 hours is the calm realization of the extreme difficulty of the task, of the sacrifices and the endless effort which it demands. If you are not prepared for discouragements, if you will not be content with a small result for a big effort, then do not begin. Lie down again and resume the uneasy doze which you call your existence.
It is very sad, and yet I think it is rather fine, too, this necessity for the tense bracing of the will before anything worth doing can be done. I feel it to be the chief thing that differentiates me from the cat by the fire.
"Well," you say, "assume that I am braced for the battle. How do I begin?" Dear sir, you simply begin. If a man at a swimming pool, wanting to jump into the cold water, should ask you, "How do I begin to jump?" you would merely reply, "Just jump. Take hold of your nerves and jump."
The chief beauty about the constant supply of time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted a single moment in your career. Therefore, no object is served in waiting till tomorrow. But before you begin, let me warn you against your own ardor. Ardor is a treacherous thing. You can't satisfy it at first; it is eager to move mountains and divert the course of rivers. And then, too often, it wearies all of a sudden and dies. Beware of undertaking too much at the start. Allow for accidents. Allow for human nature, especially your own. A glorious failure leads to nothing; a petty success may lead to a success that is not petty. Therefore, in setting out on the immense enterprise of living fully within the narrow limits of 24 hours a day, let us avoid at any cost the risk of an early failure.
Now let us examine the budget of the day's time. You actually spend in earning your livelihood eight hours, on the average. And in sleep, eight. I defy you to account to me on the spur of the moment for the other eight hours.
