Dad’s Quote of the Day

“Too much rest is rust.” – Sir Walter Scott –

Rest is good but too much rest can work against you.  It is important to find a balance between rest and momentum.  Both are critical to success in life.

Rest is about more than sitting in one place, staring at the horizon.  Rest is rejuvination.  You can find renewal in doing – a hobby, an activity, a chore, serving others.  We are all different and find renewal in different things.   You have to find what works for you.

As for me, I would rather wear out than rust out.

Love you guys
