How often in life have you had a project on the go and another one came along that seemed more appealing?
How often have you met someone who seemed totally awesome and then you met someone else who seemed even more awesome?
How often have you bought something only to see a similar product that seems even better?
If you have, you’re not alone. I like to sum this up in a simple quote –
If you chase 2 rabbits, both will escape
Too many times in my life I’ve found myself always seeming to chase something or someone. I’ll meet someone great but then meet someone else who is equally as great and then I end up losing both of them. This has happened a few times and I’ve been aware of it every time. But it still happened. I’ve realized that the way to make sure it doesn’t happen is to simply be happy with what I have instead of always trying to think about what I don’t have.
It’s the same with work, family, play, etc. It’s about having a balance in what you do. I absolutely feel when my life is out of balance so when I get to that point, I re-evaluate what I’ve committed to in order to regain my focus on what is important. The past few days I’ve been doing that again realizing that some things are important to me and I want to focus more on those.
How do you keep your life in balance?
