Doing too much

The more work you do, the faster you reach your goal. That may be true, but at what price? 

  • Did you invest in your relationships?
  • Did you invest in your health?

Probably not, and the results of the things you neglected will be the price you pay later 

For example: 

  1. You went to bed too late and woke up early
  2. Your energy levels are consistently low
  3. You ignored your partner
  4. You lost the connection
  5. You ignored the things you like and lost touch with them... the list continues

Be aware of what you lose when you give something too much priority.

The Solution

There are several things you should prioritize and are the same for everyone:

  • Connections and relationships
  • Physical Health
  • Mental Health
  • Mindset

When these are in balance, you will get close to yourself and the things you love and find meaningful.

Another side effect of this is that you will be hyper-consistent and productive. You will find time slots between these pillars and make the best use of them as possible.

Everything has a price!

Everything has a price, a sentence you hear a lot nowadays. But how does this apply to your life?

  • The power of being consistent leads you to build skills, build a happy life, etc.
  • This is called making investments because you invest in something.

Paying the price can be two things: either you do something too much or don’t do anything.

Doing nothing at all.

When doing nothing at all, you can’t expect any results. But also eventually there is a price you will pay for doing that.

  • Neglect your health and pay the price of being unhealthy.
  • Neglect on learning a skill, and you will pay the price of not taking care of yourself or your family.
  • Neglect a relationship and pay the price of a lost connection
  • Neglect to take care of your mind and pay the price of being unrestful

Act like a sea star

... not a wounded bird. 

While a wounded bird usually can’t heal on its own, a sea star regenerates its own limbs. It doesn't have to wait for someone to come to the rescue.

While outside help can be beneficial, you don't always need someone to help you overcome an obstacle. You can find solutions to your problem.

Avoid tension and build rapport

This underscores the importance of starting on the right foot.  If you upset the person you’re trying to help, they’ll wall themselves off. 

It's important to use empathy, but don’t get too friendly. Take a careful balance between making someone like you and asserting your authority.
