Pushing or Present: Not both/and

When we keep pushing forward without taking adequate time for rest and replenishment, our way of life may seem heroic but there is a frenetic quality to our work that lacks true effectiveness because we have lost the ability to be present to God, to be present to other people, and to discern what is really needed in our situation.
