...Are you really trying?

Are you really trying or just maintaining your own status quo?

I've been spending lots of time and energy on my business and feeling frustrated and spent - like I haven't been making progress...  A few days ago I took a step back and noticed that when I'm only maintaining 'what is' I seem to spend more energy keeping things in place.  Conversely, when I'm on the edge, testing new ideas and trying to innovate I become more invigorated and pro active.  It's like a positive feedback loop...

I guess it's kind of like how you have more energy when you're exercising regularly...  It's sitting still that really makes you tired.
