It’s kind of sad we have to wait until we’ve broken the camel’s back before we realize, “Hmm…this is probably a bit too much straw, huh?”
Stop stacking straw while looking away. Look at what you’re stacking, and how much of it you’re stacking.
Too often, we just keep doing something, but are wholly unaware of whether it’s necessary, or if this is the best way, or if we’ve done enough.
Don’t stack straw just because someone told you to do it, or because that’s what people do, or because that’s the way it’s always been done.
Recognize when you’re stacking too much, because we’ve all been that poor camel.
