Trying Your Best

Heard recently, from a mum to a son, "Just do the best you can to your ability. I'm not asking you to get top in class, but I'm asking you to use the intelligence God gave you to its maximum potential."

If you don't think much, this could seem pretty simple, it's just doing your best and that's that. But does doing your best mean working hard? You would say, of course. Then does doing your best mean working all time? No, you would say. But doesn't doing your best mean working as hard as you can? And working as hard as you can means working all the time, no?

Balance in life is crucial, that's true, but who is it who determine that balance? Who's balance is right?

In the end, we must determine ourselves what point can be considered our best and what point is considered being a workaholic.

Am I a workaholic or am I just trying my best? Hmm...
