    Your advice about divisions of activities and focusing only on each specific activity is so true. We tend to let our time go, like water without a glass to contain it. I think this advice is even more important to people who are struggling in life. It will help them build a framework that can stabilize and strengthen their efforts. Thank you Deepak. I have just discovered this website tonight and look forward to many hours of learning from all the resources you provide here! chris

    Beautiful guidance. Balance and total commitment all at once. It makes such sense - will free me from foolish feelings of guilt when I feel like dropping the ball in one or other area. Love the advice to ignore success and don`t focus too much on work. It`s all a matter of perception and I think in the past I`ve let short term goals lead me astray and become unbalanced with time. I love the idea of getting into rhythm over time. I think this could well free me.... Thank you Deepak! :-)

    Dear Deepak : Do you believe this is achievable? I wish I could maximize my time in this fashion. There was a time in my twenties when i was carefree, i played more, enjoyed life,friends and family more. Sure i did not have as many responsibilities , no children to feed or provide for but stilll. The wheel was not turning as fast, employers were more flexible. Not the same anymore; it is a real jungle out there. Corporations are pinching every cent and squeezing that lemon dry. Surviving i think in the current environment is actually admirable, it is an achievement. One boss told me that a skill that employees need to develop now is : tolerance to absurdity! What does that tell you? Job demands and performace expectations are unreasonable and unrealistic. It is not sufficient to do your job, you must do continuing education, participate in business social functions, volunteer in the social club or selected charity...the list is endless. Today I found out that a colleague resigned , called it quits: has no other job lined up. He hit a wall, end of story...he is not alone...and others take more drastic measures (suicide)...Times they are changing indeed...The peaceful spiritual revolution is not happening soon enough: we do need to be saved because i feel we are becoming slaves...the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, the middle class is scraping by and shrinking ...What awaits our children? How to stop the wheel? I will continue to make great efforts to balance my time as you suggest but i feel like i fail daily, weekly on so many levels because of the stress, anxiety and exhaustion. .I am joining the 21 day meditation challenge ( my 2nd time ). I greatly enjoyed Creating abundance and i look forward to discovering new feelings,thoughts with this round. I hope i can finally find a solution to get off the wheel if i cant slow it down or turn it off. In the meantime i have to keep at it, survive and fight for my daughter....My apologies for this lengthy comment. I feel there is a need for someone - why not you?- to give a realistic representation of what the low/middle working class is being subject to. .... Namaste
