I love where this joy journey is leading me. Having now written separate posts on “Accomplishing Nothing” and “Getting Stuff Done” it’s easy to see the joy of balancing the two. A good mix of relaxation and productivity is critical to enjoying both.
It doesn’t just happen though. I need to build rest in, to actively embrace the joy of a weekly day of rest, a periodic holiday, vacations, and even restful moments. By seeing them as balancing the weekly routines, and not turning them into routines of their own, I have a constant source of refreshment that keep everything fresh.
