Caught Up in an Activity Trap

“It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in an activity trap, in the business of life, to work harder and harder at climbing the ladder of success only to discover it’s leaning against the wrong wall. It is possible to be busy -very busy- without being very effective.”

“People often find themselves achieving victories that are empty, successes that have come at the expense of things they suddenly realize were far more valuable to them. people from every walk of life-doctors, academicians, actors, politicians, business professionals, athletes, and plumbers-often struggle to achieve a higher income, more recognition or certain degree of professional competence, only to find that their drive to achieve their goal blinded them to the things that really mattered most and now are gone.”

What is it that we are looking for? And do we ever find it?

The trade-offs. The sacrifice. The missed experiences and events. Are they worth it?

Have you become what through you wanted to be? Have you achived your potential?
