Too much or too little of one thing can be a bad thing. Think of it this way; to provide for your family, you focus all your energy on work, day and night, seven days a week. Only after a while do you realize that in your single-minded focus on your job, your family relationship has suffered along with your health. This shows that too much work leaves too little time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. In the same way that too much studying may make your child often tired.
