It is exciting to live life on the edge.
But it is one thing to live on the edge for a short time and another to try and make a home there. It is neither practical nor efficient.
A better choice is to play within the boundaries of nature, known as day and night and respect the tool that we have to live ie. our body. And then, once in a while you can choose to live on the edge.
And don’t worry about slow speed of progress just try to go a bit farther every day, a bit better than yesterday because 1% a day makes you 37 times better in a year.
