Excerpt from How to Live on Twenty-Four Hours a Day
Now I must point out that the case of the minority, who throw themselves with passion and gusto into their daily business task, is in finitely less deplorable than the case of the majority, who go half-heartedly and feebly through their Official day. The former are less in need of advice how to live. At any rate during their official day of, say, eight hours they are really alive; their engines are giving the full indicated h.p. The other eight work ing hours Of their day may be badly organ ised, or even frittered away; but it is less dis astrous to waste eight hours a day than six teen hours a day; it is better to have lived a bit than never to have lived at all. The real tragedy is the tragedy of the man who is braced to effort neither in the office nor out of it, and to this man this book is primarily addressed. But, says the other and more fortunate man.
