“Most of what matters in your life…” (Great Work quote)
“Most of what matters in your life
takes place in your absence.”
~ Salman Rushdie
What a delicious provocation.
For those of us (like me) that sometimes get tangled up in our own self-importance, as if we’re really at the heart of all that matters, this is a nudge to say
Get over yourself. Relax. Have some fun.
It reminds me I control less than I do, I can have more fun and enjoy myself more than I do, I’m less important than I think I am.
