Another side effect of this was the burden it created in the rest of the schedule. Because so many things were done in rush mode with no margin I managed to teach my children to work that way as well. Many times I see their hastiness, impatience and failure to think things through and realize that I am quite likely the one who fostered that.
To my kids. Get off the "hurry" treadmill and enjoy the down times. Plan for them. Put margin in the schedule.
To my friends I want you to answer the question with me, "Did my schedule and lack of rest contribute to my health problems? (Stroke, seizures, blockage, lack of exercise and poor eating habits leading to obesity)
Pull out your calender and schedule rest. Hurry! Do it now!
