GOOD ADVICE?

I love the sign that I saw in a bathroom in Lubbock, TX that said:
To allow one's self to be carried away by
a multitude of conflicting concerns,
to surrender to too many demands,
to commit oneself to too many projects,
to want to help everyone in everything
is to succumb to violence,
frenzy destroys our capacity for peace.
It destroys the fruitfulness of our work
because it kills the root of inner work
which makes work fruitful.
-Thomas Merton
