A man once asked a guru how he could fix his life, and life a life of quality and meaning, the guru simply replied, “Ruthlessly eliminate all hurry from your life,”. The man walked away disappointed as he expected a long discourse on life, but got a short reply. That’s life.
Speed kills, when you are blazing through life at a million miles an hour, you can’t stop and smell the roses, let alone notice them.
Regardless of what you may have been told, living on little sleep and being on the go constantly is not the optimal situation for the body. Sure, there is a time for speed, but there is a time for slow too.
A wise man once said, “Balance is the key to life,” I think that should be our goal in most things. My advice would be to walk, and only run if you absolutely have to. You may be hooked on the adrenalin, but your body isn’t equipped to deal with constant high doses, and eventually will begin to shut down in order to force you to slow down.
Life is to be savoured and enjoyed, you can still achieve great success and not have to be hasty about it.
