There will always be more to do. More that you could have done, and maybe even more that you should have done.

Those with the most balance in their lives are the ones who can take a moment to appreciate what they DID do.

We are all guilty of saying statements like: “I completed this task, and now I can do another.” Or “I did this, but it could have been better.” Yes, both may be true, but where is the recognition for what you did do?

I would encourage you personally, and certainly if you are the leader of a team, to be able to say “Yes!” – just “yes” and let that be enough for the moment. Celebrate yes, period, as a way of building up the energy to allow you to move forward and do that ‘more’.
