    Author Todd Henry says the graveyard is where undoneendeavors are buried and is the most valuable land in the world. To me, that's saying the most valuable place is where you find what's dead and not done.The most valuable place is the placethat Iam alive, using my creativityand not having regrets. It's the place that I use and empty what I am. Work is effort to accomplish a goal. Toil is strenuous exhausting work. Work can be toil but doesn't have to be. You can achieve value through work or toil that is of value to you. As many have said, if you do activity you love you never work a day in your life. I was in my early twenties when I got at least some understanding of activity that was really important to me whichresulted ijn the courageto leave the career path I was on and commit to work that is stillvaluable to me. Pursuing what is of value to me, actualizing my potential, helps me to die empty.
