Don’t be frivolous

If you fail to invest the time and effort to find a better path, it's unlikely you'll find one.

Look at how you spend your time, what you think about, and how your invest your energy. Are you engaged in frivolous activities? Do you have a laissez-faire thought process? How wisely do you invest your time? 

Frivolity can be confused with light-heartedness but is really a unwillingness to look closely at your subjective experience. Frivolity shouldn’t be confused with innocent unattached curiosity. 

You should also watch for the opposite of being frivolous, being seriously stogie. Life, balance and humor lie in the zone well between being frivolous and being seriously stogie.

Hope you have an awesome day!
