It’s easy for me to feel when I’m doing just enough or thinking ahead.
Each level of effort and engagement has its own vibration, and it’s completely oppositional to the other. There are times when just enough will do, but most of the time, it’s a sure-fire way to exclude ourselves from the running.
Finding out what life-buckets never induce the just enough response is what it’s all about.
Then again, knowing the difference between just enough and thinking ahead can’t be taught. What’s more, being fair to ourselves and others about what we can, and will give, is about an inner dialogue that informs how we show up.
If we’re asked to think ahead and we show that we’re preoccupied with just enough, they’re most likely going to move on.
