The advantage of being at the bottom is that you don’t have too much to lose. There’s a big chance you are going to start functioning better if you drop or acquire the right thing.

Naturally, the opposite is true for having things. Certain things are critical for your current state. You either already know what that is, or going to learn the hard way. If your life is not designed around what you are about, it will almost surely slip away. It’s important that you engage in it regularly.

Accountability is your friend. Whatever you do to keep yourself in check, it has to be a part of your life.
