Know Your Limits, Play Within Them

When you work a lot and there’s not much time for play, you tend to push the envelope on trying to squeeze in the things in life you want to do in a short amount of time.More often than not, the results aren’t what you had hoped. In the end, one looks back disappointed in the accomplishments.

Sometimes you just need to pick and choose your spots and try not to squeeze in as much as possible into those small windows of opportunity. The quality of the things you are trying to accomplish suffers when its rushed or when one is tired or when you can’t commit the time necessary to do it right.  Its better to do things well, rather than just sufficiently.

Its hard to stay the course but doing less creates better long term results.  Life is hectic and we all want to keep busy and not miss a thing.  Life pushes us to our limits sometimes.  There is just so much out there one wants to do!

Even if we just look at our worklife, we are way more productive in a 30-40 hour work week than a 50-60 hour work week.  We’ll be the first to admit that even on a daily basis, the ends of our workshifts don’t amount to much productivity.  Now apply that train of  thought to our personal lives.

Learn to recognize when one is trying to do too much and adjust accordingly.  Perhaps its as simple as just picking one thing to do and focus in on that.  Perhaps its better time management.  Perhaps its something else entirely.  No matter how you go about it, figure out what works best for you and stick to it.  You’ll be better for it in the long run and it will show in the results.
