Enjoy the world or improve the world!
The American author Elwyn Brooks White wrote:
“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.”
Are those two call to action mutually exclusive?
To enjoy life one must have an enjoyable occupation, a comfortable house surrounded by loved ones and be in good health. It is achievable as making it happen is in one’s hands.
Improving the world is a more complex exercise. Working for a better world is an uphill battle. In fact by trying to improve life for others, one may need to give up some pleasure, putting one’s own peace in abeyance.
