Never mistake activity for achievement. (John Wooden, late sports coach)

Wooden’s down-to-earth maxims are remembered by his players and sports fans. He has observed, as we all have, people who are busy, busy, busy all the time. They never seem to slow down to relax and socialize because “I’m too busy.” It would be good to see what our busyness is accomplishing. When it comes to overwork, maybe “less is more.”

Better to have one handful with quietness than two handfuls with hard work and chasing the wind. (Ecclesiastes 2:11)
