Doing too much or too little will usually complicate your life – either now or in the future. When you do enough, you find the optimum point of harmony and balance between the two unbalanced points and avoid potential extremes. Consider if you are or have been:
- Tired to the point of knowing you’re exhausted.
- Not been able to get motivated because you were afraid of doing something.
- Ill or had to recover for a long period after working too hard, being under too much stress, or after a long or really intense period.
- Under pressure to do too much; or were not happy so you didn’t contribute or do as much as you knew you wanted to or had to do.
- Stopped or held back by the ways you use your time, emotions or energy when sharing, connecting or moving forward in your life because you were over-invested in one area of your life, or underwhelmed in another.
- Feeling that your life was unbalanced, which made it harder to feel fulfill
- Losing sleep, put on or dropped too much weight, and known that you needed to make changes because of the pressures on your life.
- Unsure what to do or how to get your life back on track.
Doing enough is the selective, artful balance of your efforts relative to what you want or need to accomplish.
If you have too much, or feel there’s too little going on in your life, take whatever opportunities you can to shift your life to the place you want and need it to be.
A few ways to do enough are:
- Say yes when you know an activity would be something that will energize you and make a positive difference in your life. Consider who and when to say ‘no,’ if you accept too many projects, invitations or get overwhelmed too often.
- Know that if you feel overwhelmed, look at and action constructive ways to step back, review new options, and consider taking a new, more simplified or faster path to get what you need done.
- Figure out if you use doing too much as emotional or life avoidance tactics for relationships in your life.
- Ask if you back away from certain tasks and don’t do enough because of fear, lack of knowledge, low esteem, or because you would rather be doing something else with someone else.
- Notice your gut reaction to any idea that is presented to you to find out if it is right for you before you start it.
