“Always being in a hurry does not prevent death, neither does going slowly prevent living.” ~Ibo Proverb
Over-activity obscures achievement. Living with endless lists, perpetual tasks, or always connected to a smart phone means that you are out of balance. Winners know that attending to your spiritual, physical, social, professional, family and mental life sectors are integral to success.
Don’t allow over-activity to stretch you too thin. Mimimize extraneous preoccupations. Take time to organize and plan your tasks for the day-do that first and ensure that you find the fulcrum that creates balance. Go for a walk, take a vacation, read, work on a hobby, spend time with family and friends. Make quality time a priority.
Over-activity leads to stress. Stress is a pre-cursor to illness. Illness leads to disease. Disease can cause death. In essence, too much activity kills. Get out of the rat race.
Get into life. Stay busy but let productivity be your motive. Take it easy.
