Do You Know When You’ve Reached Enough?

You’re up earlier than you need to be so that you can arrive earlier than anyone else and get in an hour or two of extra practice, extra work. This is drive and determination, this is the desire to get ahead, or, at least, not fall behind. This is how you make an impact.

But do you have metrics for enough? When the right amount of impact is made, will you know it? And if you know it, will you still sleep less and push more?

Maybe you’re trying to make an impact, or maybe you’re outrunning the fear that you’re not the impact-making type and that today is the day everyone will realize it. You can’t sustain good work and ministry–much less health–that way.

Decide what counts as enough. Then stop.
