When I was growing up, my Mum used to always say to me “everything in moderation, including moderation”. I never really understood the meaning of this when I was younger. It’s only as I’ve grown older that I’ve come to realise the importance of that message. It’s now something that I try to stay particularly mindful of, especially during times when I feel I may be overdoing something to a certain degree. After all, too much of anything – even something good – can be a bad thing.
I’m a huge fan of Jordan Peterson – he has so much good life advice that can be applicable to all of us. In this video, he offers his opinion on what you should do if you’re struggling with starting something. He also mentions why it’s important to readjust and sometimes aim low.
