Do you feel the years slipping by while you have yet to accomplish your goals? Are you constantly rushing but not really getting anywhere? Are you uneasy that there has to be more? If so, chapter two of How to Live on 24 Hours a Day by Arnold Bennett, The Desire to Exceed One's Programme, is for you.
So what does he mean by "desire to exceed one's programme" anyway? Well, this is obviously British spelling and common usage from back in the early 1900s when the book was written but he defines programme somewhat in the middle of page nine (below) as "those things which we are loyally and morally obliged to do" (such as support your family, pay your bills, etc.).
Do you want more from life than that? If so, read on. (FYI - I posted these pages as images so adjust your zoom level if the text is too small.)
And if you missed chapter one of How to Live on 24 Hours a Day, here's a link to my post on the daily miracle of time.
