For me, if I’m not working on an endeavor/project/goal then I’m coasting. As nice as it may feel to lay off the throttle in life, I’ve found I don’t get much satisfaction out of doing nothing in the long run. I grow anxious and I feel disconnected to the world as I’m not contributing to the big picture.
After working towards something in an extremely focused manner, of course it’s nice to take a break. But, only to recharge my batteries as I scheme what’s next.
Don’t get me wrong, the last thing I want to be is a hamster on a wheel. Certainly, that isn’t productive. But, we’re all capable of so much more than we could possibly imagine and I want to push those boundaries for myself to see what’s possible.
Otherwise, life can get pretty boring quite fast. I’ve heard it said, that if you’re bored with life, then you can bet life is probably bored with you.
In the meantime, I’m going to try to best my last project and learn something new about myself along the way.
What say you?
