I’m always looking for ways to address burnout and increase my energy. A lot of the advice I read doesn’t seem to be very efficacious. This site, however, was different. Way more honest–the author is definitively saying something that DOESN’T work: Pokemon cards.
She knows. Her kids sneaked a set of banned cards into the house and she immediately confiscated them. Before putting them up for sale on eBay, she tried carrying around the Energy cards in the pack. Nada. No more energy.
Vicariously, however, the laugh I got out of reading this story (including the amount of money the Mom got from selling her kids’ cards), gave ME enough energy to go exercise. So, ciao. I’m taking the energy I got and hoping to use it to generate some more at the gym.
Go to the original article. It’s way funnier than any synopsis I could give of it.
