“What is man without energy? Nothing. Nothing at all.”
With all of the gimmicks and advertisements for ways to increase your energy, we are made to forget that both we and our goals are energy.

In the words of a Navy SEAL, “Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.” Friction causes tension, so challenge yourself to be more mindful of your responses to negativity and use your energy in a more productive manner. Martin reminds us that we have a limited amount of energy each day and that drama should be avoided at all times, if necessary.
“Always take hold of things by the smooth handle.”
