‘More’ Jeremy Scheller

Submitted by James Higginbotham on March 3, 2010 – 4:07 amNo Comment

Jeremy Scheller writes in his blog post titled The Paradox of More:

More sounds better.

More resources.

More stuff.

More beautiful.

More productive.

More is the standard I have set for myself.

More outputs.

More accomplishments.

More pats on the back.

More results.

More is what I want and more is what I’m getting. In order to get more, I’m putting in

More time.

More stress.

More money.

More of my life.

In order to get more, my family is getting

Less daddy.

Less husband.

Less patience.

Less love.

I’m ready for

Less perfect.

Less outputs.

Less pride.

Less friction.

Are you doing more and sacrificing something or someone else? If so, perhaps it is time to start raising up leaders to help you. Leaders to help carry the burden.

Thank you Jeremy for the reminder.
