Don't be a perfectionist. Don't be a workaholic.
Be good at what you do, leave top and best for those who burn out too soon.
Work sensibly, leave cunning and overwhelming to those who leak dry too fast.
Be sustainable to yourself, or else not your environment. Don't be a finite fossil fuel.

Hi Alan! It's Bruna :) I am a perfectionist; it's my nature. I try to curb it some, though. I am too intense for most people's tastes, including my own family LOL! This is great advice. Thank you for writing it, and thanks for sticking around a little while longer <3
