Do less, gain more

Remember the story of the tortoise and the hare?  There are always going to be those people that jump out of the gates, guns blazing, heart pounding, determined to prove to everyone they are the best, so they do every little thing they can in order to do just that and sometimes they execute the triple lindy and sometimes they ejaculate prematurely.  In the mean time, they are usually pretty annoying, super high strung, and often can make you feel like you are supposed to keep up with them at their pace.

One of two things is going to happen to them, they are either going to burn out, or achieve what it is they want, neither of which are really relative to you at all.  If you’re not that type of person, trying to be one is only going to make you hate whatever it is you are doing. There are times in life where doing less, actually gains you more ground.  Once you figure this out, things become easier.

Sure, like Koonu says, you can’t just lay there, you have to do more than that, but spending all day every day on something, without taking time for yourself, others, or to get your mind off of it?  That could be a recipe for disaster.  I’m not preaching laziness by any means, more so rationalizing what it is you are wishing to obtain or achieve and making plans that work for who you are.  Sometimes finishing a reading, having a couple mike’s hard lemonades, watching your favorite episode of the Vampire Diaries and giving something a little extra to the mrs. in the bedroom is worth more in the long run.  I’m not saying, I’m just saying.  “Hatin’ is bad.*” “Skeet skeet skeet, water gun**”
