We live in times where pushing forward is glamourised and equates to hard work and success. To some extent, yes. However, pushing forward and pulling back are equally powerful forces. Too much push will leave you feeling stressed/burned out, while too much pull will lead to laziness/procrastination.
In order to succeed, a state of equilibrium must be achieved by making the most of both forces. Use markers of stress and procrastination to navigate the two forces at play and reach equilibrium.
