Working more creates more work
And so it begins…
Last night I was finishing up my work when I looked at the clock, it was nearly 8 0’clock. It was getting late.
For many of you, 8 0’clock is not late by any means but I try to get to bed by 9:30 at the latest.
Last week I felt myself becoming burnt out, which is never good. I was blessed to have a weekend away with some friends to help re-kindle the fire. However, I noticed myself returning to my old ways on Monday.
I have been down this road before, actually, multiple times. I have repeated this cycle too many times to count and each time I lose a little more. Be it a relationship, dignity or time with friends the cycle always ends in disappointment.
I have realized the more I work, the more work I have to do.
So, it begins, I decided to stop this cycle which is long over due. I have chosen to no longer work after 8pm. This is a small step but all success must start some where. I will slowly trim away the hours of work and add to the hours play and relaxation.
Can you relate to this burnt out feeling? Maybe you have lost dignity, friendship or other relationships?
Today is a great day to step back and re-evaluate your prioritize.
Today is a great day to relax and breathe. Understand the work you don’t get finished will be there tomorrow.
Today is a great day to do better for yourself, your family and your world.
