Living In The Margin

The word “margin” has many definitions, including one that can dramatically improve our lives. Margin allows us to function effectively without continually maxing out important personal resources such as time, energy, money, patience, capacity, etc. A person who lives with little or no margin is constantly operating with a tank that’s nearly empty in one or more category.
