"Life is too short to do everything we want yet long enough to do everything God wants us to do." Many have dedicated all their time on personal goals forgetting completely about the plans of God for their lives.
Perhaps at this instant, the most important approach you could have is listening to the voice of God. You may be going through something in which this is crucial step.
The problem of many is not the fact of having so much work to do but, having this work distract them, take away all their time and make them push aside the most important thing at that moment: our connection and relationship with God.
"Hear, O my people, and I will speak..." (Psalm 50:7)
