Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active.

Relax

One great way to maintain your focus is to let go of it for a while. To make your efforts more effective, get away from them for a little bit.

Intense focus requires energy and enthusiasm. To replenish that energy and enthusiasm, make it a habit to take a real break.

Up to a certain point, the more you work the more you’ll accomplish. Eventually though, you’ll reach a point of diminishing returns.

Enjoy the challenge of working with intensity. Then spend some time relaxing, away from all that work.

Be productive, be effective, be focused and committed. And then regularly sit back and truly enjoy the fruits of your efforts.

For optimum performance, keep yourself balanced. Allow your efforts and your relaxation to positively contribute to each other.

— Ralph Marston
