Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People
Originally uploaded by mikemindel
I have a planner that I use faithfully. It is from FranklinCovey, and is called the "7 Habits Planner." I like it because it has daily quotes, a weekly compass, and helps keep me centered. Today, in the midst of much personal and professional turmoil, while trying to do too much, I read this at the top of today's page:
"No one can keep running for twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Your mental and physical capacities are significantly depleted when you push yourself too hard and for too long. Take time for the rest, relaxation, and renewal you need. Renewal allows you to take on the challenges of daily living." -The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, pages 303-304
I cannot tell you how much those few words helped me get re-focused today.
I hope they help you when you read them as well.
