The Anti-Burnout Limit I am writing a book about endurance, and have fallen in love with its meaning and quality. I looked up endurance at thesaurus.com, and I got a huge boost of energy. Listen to these lovely words: Ability, capacity, courage, fortitude, grit, mettle, patience, perseverance, persistence, stamina, strength, tenacity, tolerance, and vitality!

Here’s the antonyms for endurance: Apathy, cowardice, idleness, impotence, inability, incompetence, indifference, indolence, intolerance, lack, laziness, lethargy, timidity, and weakness.... Read More
