I'm just reflecting that there's great value in balance; getting enough sleep, for example, might be difficult if you're constantly thinking about what you could be working on. Other aspects of your life will ultimately suffer if work is your sole focus.

Look, you are responsible for your health... physical, mental, spiritual, etc. If the way you've set up your life doesn't serve to keep you or those around you healthy, no GTD system will serve you. You have to decide to make changes if things are out of balance. And that may just happen organically as circumstances change for you. Being motivated and goals-driven is not a bad thing, don't get me wrong! But if you think things need to change, it's time to stop talking about it and put the pedal to the metal.
I hope that makes some sense... haven't had my morning tea yet...
