Are you putting everything you have into everything you do – trying to have it all!

Often, we think we can have it all, only by doing it all. That’s a vicious cycle that stands to bite us in the backside!

You can have it all. But likely not by the way you think – not by pushing yourself to exhaustion trying to do it all.

Having it all without losing it all, lies in our ability to live a balanced life. This means identifying what we really want. And then pursuing only the top priorities we consider truly important to our happiness and success.

If you try to have it all by pursuing literally everything, it will come only at a big price.

“Fatigue makes fools of us all. It robs us of our skills, our judgment, and blinds us to creative solutions.” (Harvey Mackay)
