The Point of No Return

“No pain, no gain.”

“No cross, no crown.”

We associate hard work with success. Fair enough, though I’d prefer to see “smart work.” There is a point of no return, however, when your focus, even on the laudatory and worthy, becomes extremism and dysfunctional. You can pursue a hobby too much, until it actually becomes “work” and not pleasure. You can workout too much, where the pain exceeds the gain. You can even be too generous, and sacrifice your own objectives making you less able to actually help others.

Don’t believe that simply because you’re working up a real or “virtual” sweat that you’re progressing. Keep your eye on the goal, which shouldn’t be a moving target, forever accelerating away from you. Hit a goal and choose another. But exceeding the goal isn’t the point in  most cases.

That particularly applies to money. It’s one thing to want a comfortable life, it’s another to simply chase money.

TIAABB: There is always a bigger boat.
