The world is beautiful and the bakery around the corner makes delicious chocolate cake. These things you can count on. In a shifting, sliding universe, it's worth noting the things that don't ever change. Another thing that never changes are your human attachments -- the people who are close to you, the people you love. You should invest as much time and energy in your friendships and your love life as you do in your work. Work is important, but it's not as important as finding overall harmony in your life.
