Ruthlessly Prioritize

“Work completely severed from the element of playfulness becomes drab and monotonous, a tendency which is consummated by the complete quantification of industrial work. Pleasure when equally isolated from the ‘serious’ content of life, becomes silly, meaningless and sheer ‘entertainment’ and ultimately it is a mere means of reproducing one’s working capacity, whereas the real substance of any non-utilitarian activity lies in the way it faces and sublimates reality problems: res severa verum gaudium [true joy is a serious thing].”

–Theodor Adorno
