Sometimes over-zealous work on our personal growth programs can lead to an imbalanced life, whereby we spend so much time and effort on a self-improvement program, or a personal goal within the program, that other important aspects of our lives can suffer from lack of attention.

Our personal growth efforts can actually suffer if we spend a disproportionate amount of time trying to ensure positive results.

Running or jogging, for example, has benefits for improving our health, but these benefits are of little use if we skew the rest of our life out of balance by constantly trying to include more and more running.

Or, we can spend so much time researching and studying personal development that we do not spend enough time on those action steps needed to bring our goals to fruition.

Doing community work to excess can interfere with the time we should be spending with our own family.

As psychologist and self-actualization thinker Carl Jung has observed:

“Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, or morphine, or idealism.”
