Busy seasons have an end point, when you make yourself busy the end isn’t as tangible.  This can lead to over exhaustion and when you are tired you cannot be productive.

If you notice that life has picked up pace and you don’t know why it’s probably due to a lack of discipline and accountability.  When tension strikes and the unexpected happens you need to have people and systems that will hold you accountable.

If you aren’t going through a busy period now, take time to prepare for them by gathering a group of individuals who will hold you accountable.  If you are in the midst of chaos find someone you trust and pray with them.  Have the people you love and trust work with you to build margin and a schedule that will get you through these busy periods.  In the end you will prevail.

What are the other consequences of moving too fast?  What are some of the reasons behind it?
