Try so hard to STOP TRYING SO HARD

There’s only so much you can do, there’s only so much you can be.

The moment you start trying too hard, the moment you put impressing people over actually doing stuff that matter, you find yourself lost. You find that your productivity becomes limited.

Sometimes, we think too much of our multitasking capabilities, and this ensures that in the end, what we end up achieving on many fronts dwarfs what we would’ve achieved had we set our minds to one task at a time.

Sometimes, we fail to realize that the strength of associations/alliances differ from individual to individual, and so we spend too much time trying to bond covalently with who should probably remain a casual acquaintance.

You see, life is too short to sow so much into stuff that doesn’t in one way or the other further our cause in the grand scheme of things.

Make a resolve from now to identify on time the things and people you should devote a huge chunk of your time and resources to, and with all that you have, nurture those relationships and ‘causes’ to maturity.

You’ll find that you’ll be less frustrated about ‘things not working out’ when you do your best at what you love. Your best alone, no more than that!

You’ll find that you’ll be less bitter/concerned about people not reciprocating your concern about/care for them when you realize your place in their lives and theirs in yours.

Try so hard to stop ‘trying so hard’

There’s only so much you can do, there’s only so much you can be.
