It's easy to get confused about what to "GO FOR" next. Can you relate?
I've spent the last year doing less and being more. It has felt a little odd. Ok, more like totally out of my skin if I'm being honest.
I am used to a fast pace; always having the next "thing" in sight. That's what all the self-help gurus tell you, right? Always have a compelling future. Before you complete one goal, know what the next goal is so you don't fall into a state of being "down." And there is wisdom in this advice.
On the other hand, we are constantly bombarded with messages that encourage us to pay attention to self-care; to slow down and smell the roses. Avoid the dreaded burnout.
Sleep when you die.
Get 8+ hours of sleep a night.
Take massive action.
Rome wasn't built in a day. Be consistent and take one step at a time.
And if we sat here to dissect all of the above, I"m sure we could find a way to see that all of these can co-exist happily together without contradicting each other.
Sometimes we get so stuck in our heads that it can be tricky to identify the "right" thought process.
Sometimes being a self-proclaimed "go-getter" can mess with your head. It can become your identity (not a bad thing to call yourself, mind you). Then when you want to take a break, it's hard to do so and still see yourself in a positive light.
You're allowed to work hard AND play hard.
What's the use of working so hard to achieve things if you never stop to enjoy the success you've created?
