I’ve come to recognise there’s a difference – and I’ve spent more time and money indulging in the latter.
fuel – something used in the production of production of energy, especially.
I love cafés. The frothy coffee (I’m a heathen) and the sweet treats; the ambience and a bit of people watching. Sitting in a café is one of my favourite ways to pass time. But it’s not fuel.
additive – substance added to something else to improve, strengthen, or otherwise alter it.
Even in a spot that I find most pleasing, my time in a café is merely an additive. Working out what is fuel isn’t as easy, at least for me, as it feels it should be. This feels important in the context of a quote that really resonates me since I’m low on motivation:
The generator doesn’t have energy – it creates energy!Brendon Burchard
