The faculty of effort

Here's a little Monday advice from William James, American philosopher, pragmatist and psychologist:

Keep the faculty of effort alive in you by a little gratuitous exercise every day. That is, be systematically ascetic or heroic in the little unnecessary points. Do every day or two something for no other reason than that you would rather not do it, so that when your hour of dire need draws nigh, it may find you not unnerved and untrained to stand the test.

JUST ONE LINK TODAY and the honor goes to Paul Krugman.
