    I’m not gonna lie–I hate this time of year. I love the results and despise the process. I feel robbed of that hour of sleep. As if it were a conspiracy to take away the little sleep I have. Thanks for the insights–hugely helpful. But not so much that I still don’t hate it.

    • Steve Morgan says:

      Yes, I hate losing time. I could have a problem with “enough”. Brené Brown talks about this. The first thought we have when we wake up often is “I didn’t get enough sleep.” Our last thought when our head hits the pillow often is “I didn’t get enough done today.” Everything in between is a litany of “not enoughs”. Does this relate or am I off on another blog? Too much thinking–I might need a horizontal life break!

      • daylerogers says:

        It is another blog–but it’s so true! I know I struggle with “enough”. How do you define it? When is it ok to say it? How do you act on it? If you’ve got an answer, Steverino, share it! Would love your insights!

      • Steve Morgan says:

        Daylio. I am still on that journey. I just read Brené Browns book, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are. You may see some processing of that on the blog. How would you define “enough”? I am not sure I am tracking with your second question of when is it ok to say it. What do you mean by that?

      • daylerogers says:

        Our culture in this outfit tends to make us believe that expectations are always high and should be higher. When in the mission is it ok to say I’ve done enough? Jesus said it was finished, but we’re not Him. So often I feel that there are things I “should” keep doing. And yet it’s exhausting and may not show any results. So when can you say it’s enough?
