The Importance of Margin

I was reading a book the other day. I was in a hurry to get my reading done for the day so I could check it off my list and move to the next item. The topic of the chapter really knocked me on the head – especially with  my hurried attitude! It reminded me about the importance of having margin in our lives.

If we fill every waking moment with activity and spend less time with our families and time just “being still” we will burn out quickly. Margin is important to maintain a healthy balance. Without it we will get tired and possibly lose motivation to keep our passions going in our business and other areas of our life.

It was a great reminder for me and thought it might be for you too.

Just a thought…
