Never mistake activity for achievement.

There is a principle of economics that goes something like this: If you lost money on every sale, you can’t make up for it in quantity. In other words, if your product is bad, it is not going to get better just because you make more of it.

Some people need to apply this principle to the activities of their lives. They mistakenly think that increasing their commitments is admirable because “more is better.” But sometimes more is worse, and this is particularly true of activities in our daily schedule.

Before you get busier than you already are, evaluate what you are doing. Maybe you should delete some commitments from your schedule so that you can do a better job with fewer activities.

Whatever you do, do well. Ecclesiastes 9:10
