Never mistake having a list with leading a life on purpose

Being productive and doing as much stuff as possible is important in our work life. This race for more, faster, better, etc starts as early in school. We are groomed to get stuff done. Doing is more important than being. Or is it?
Problem is that working your bum off and getting stuff done can easily distract you from realizing what is truly important to you. Years can go by and you can easily go head on into a midlife crisis.
So periodically stop what you are doing for a moment and ask yourself that if what you are doing is truly filling you with energy for a long time to come.
