Being productive is a societal value that many subconsciously bring into their own value set.

Just because we can do more doesn’t mean that we should.

What determine if we “can”? Hours in the day? Being awake? Have a breathing body?

This world will take us for all we’ve got if we don’t hold our boundaries for what we do and don’t do.

Determine what parameters bring about a yes and a no. Be flexible with them or hold as firm as you wish.

Remember that just because you can doesn’t mean that you have to.
