Are you rested enough?

One measure for whether or not you are rested enough (besides falling asleep in board meetings) is to ask yourself this: "How much do I care about the things I care about?" When we lose concern for people, both lost and saved, for friendship, for truth, for beauty, for goodness; when we cease to laugh when our children laugh and instead yell at them to be quiet, when we cease to weep when our spouses weep and instead wish they did not get so emotional, when we hear of trouble among our neighbors and our first thought is we hope it does not involve us, when we stop caring about the things we care about, that is a signal we are too busy; we have let ourselves be consumed by things that feed the ego, but starve the soul.
