True friendship affirms that you may from time to time rely upon another’s strength or character as either an anchor or a resource, but never as a crutch.
If you feel so “busy” all the time, it’s probably because you are. But consider this:
Keeping yourself distracted by doing things that you find COMFORTABLE delivers very different results than investing in your Self by doing things that you VALUE.
Do you prefer to belong to a Group or a Team? What’s the main differentiator between the two?
- Group members share at least a common characteristic.
- Team members all need to share a common objective.
The comforting yet subtly corrosive inclination to keep ourselves busy while waiting for things to happen rather than stepping up to make things happen.
A natural progression of likely objectives, from youth through old age…

Where are you? 🙂
In my opinion, one of the greatest hurdles to success for most people is adaptability.
Success often depends on your ability to adapt to new ideas, strategies & information – as though you’ve been in possession of them all your life.
Which of course requires a combination of confidence, intelligence, and maturity of character.
Which is why adaptability is often one of the greatest hurdles to success for most people.
On the Plains of Hesitation
Bleach the bones of countless millions
Who, when victory was dawning
Sat down to rest
And resting, died.
