One of my favorite products on our online store is the doormat which says, “Well, Butter My Butt and Call Me a Biscuit, Look Who’s Here!” We’ve received so many great reactions from that simple sentence.
Speaking of biscuits, I was looking online the other day for recipes and I found a site sharing tips and techniques for making the perfect biscuit. One of the tips really stood out to me…
Stir with a Purpose: When mixing the dough, stir just until the batter is well-moistened and begins to cling together. Overworking can lead to tough, dry, and heavy biscuits; underworking can result in biscuits that are crumbly and leaden.
Do you find yourself overworking? Are you busy just for the sake of being busy, or are you “stirring with a purpose”?
The three words used to describe the overworked biscuits are very interesting: tough, dry, and heavy. They are perfect words to describe someone with Adultitis!
Interestingly enough, the words used to describe underworked biscuits are relevant on the other end of things: crumbly and leaden. Laziness is a form of childishness. Watching four hours of TV every night, procrastinating on responsibilities and burying your talents are just a few ways that underworking manifests in adult life. This is just as bad as overworking.
Adultitis is rampant in those who overwork, as well as those who underwork. The key to it all is balance and it starts with self-reflection. Take some time today to identify if any of those words describe you.
