But what if you’re working hard on all the wrong things?
You’ve heard all the advice to slow down, be more of a “Mary” and less of a “Martha.” But you don’t want to slow down—it’s not how you’re wired. Instead, you want to live a full and busy life with purpose and meaning, a life that is balanced and joyful. A life of Impactivity, rather than simple productivity.
Somehow, in all your efforts to be productive, you suspect you’ve gotten off track. You’re experiencing stress and anxiety, or perhaps exhaustion and burnout. You feel guilty when you slow down, but guilty that you work too hard. Life’s out of balance, and underneath it all is the nagging fear that nothing you’re doing matters.
