Tony Schwartz got to thinking about his life, and he realized even though he had written a best-seller and had a good marriage and healthy kids, he was still empty.
So he talked and watched; and then he found 200 "high achievers" who succeeded ... but not through pushing harder. Surprisingly, it was through relaxing and detaching! And then he wrote another book about what he had found. (See "What Really Matters: Searching for Wisdom in America" and "The Power of Full Engagement: Managing Energy, Not Time, Is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal."

How often do we rediscover what was shared with us by the Lord so many years ago are actually the principles of great living today?
God bless those principles in your life today with a Sabbath rest and remember what Jesus said: "The Sabbath was made to benefit people, and not people to benefit the Sabbath" (Mark 2:27 NLT).
