It is very easy to take on too much at one time. A friend of mine has so many projects going on at once, they don’t know which way they are going. Web sites, applications, and all top of all that, a full load of college courses. We are so wrapped up with getting ahead, the newest cloud application, the best wireless service, and everything else in this very fast paced world, that we forget why we are doing this in the first place. You can make every MeetUp meeting, satisfy all of your customer’s requirements, and give them the best UX (user experience) imaginable within the new design you’ve given them, but, if you don’t take the time to enjoy the autumn colors (if that’s your thing), take a nice long drive (to anywhere but work), or do ANY of the things you used to do, you will lose yourself in that one (or three) activity and will not know what “normal” was, is, or will be. Lose weight, lose a race, even lose your wallet every now and then, but do not lose yourself or you may find it hard to know which direction you are going.
