Most of my friends, colleagues, and clients are arriving at year end in an exhausted state, like we are coming to the end of a long dark tunnel of pushing through to get things Done. (Of course, as one of my friends keeps reminding me, There Is No Done.)

“You know that the antidote to exhaustion is not necessarily rest? The antidote to exhaustion is wholeheartedness.”
