From those to whom much Is given, much is expected

Due to my unalterable nature to multitask I often chew more than I can bite. I fell into a similar pit yesterday – I have a 9 to 5 job, I am maintaining two blogs, interviewing an upcoming book author, working as a volunteer to support education for underprivileged children and ready to be a part of The Heart of a woman project.

I did not even realize that the list is so long until I wrote it. This is what happens to all of us who suffer from the Multitask Syndrome.

It is actually a tug of war between what we do as a passion and what we do to pay our bills.

Lucky are those who have the privilege to do something they truly love. To work on something, which is a passion.

But is multitasking so bad? Do we really bite more than we can chew?

I stumble or review these questions several times when I fall into a heap of projects. And this morning something wonderful happened. I am reading a book called The One Book, where I read a line which got stuck into my head:

“From those to whom much is given, much is expected”

Today if you are reading this post, it means you are richer than billions of people who do not have an access to the internet. You are also luckier than billions, who do not even know how to read!

Yes, we are privileged. And to make the most of the riches we have we often need to rediscover the joy of giving. Of sharing. Of doing more. Because until we do not push and test ourselves, we will not discover our true potentials.

And when in doubt of your capabilities to handle you duties and also make an effort to better someone’s life, read out loud:

“From those to whom much is given, much is expected”
