Inspiration from the Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, asnwered
“Man.
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that
he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present
or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die,
and then dies having never really lived.”

Surprisingly to me, someone whom I perceive as sacrificing his life (and to the extent of health) for his career, shared the above message with us. Perhaps, it is my perception that is wrong.
