The Best Kind of Endings

We’ve been socialized to believe in the fairy-tale endings found in movies and novels. We’ve lost sight of the good, old-fashioned value of hard and consistent work.
— Darren Hardy

I enjoy a good fairy tale. I do. But I also know the difference between fiction and real life.

In real life, the best kind of endings are the days when we exert ourselves entirely; when we get over our self-absorption or lethargy, put our hand to the plow, and don't look up until the day is done.

This kind of hard work generates value. And value delights, satisfies, and nourishes us on the inside.
