Are you a Leunig fan?
I find myself drawn to his work, his child-like, often melancholy, yet still joyful take on life.
When the to-do list seems to be getting choc-a-bloc and my mind becomes feverish, I think of this quote:
“It is worth doing nothing and having a rest.”
In this age of constant productivity and self-improvement, when every minute of the day is supposed to be accounted for and spent in the most useful way, I find this idea quietly revolutionary.
What is really worth doing? What is really worth having? There are plenty of things worth doing, I think, and some very few worth having. But sometimes it is also worth doing nothing and having a rest.
