Ecclesiastes 4:6 Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.

Commentary:

To set goals and pursue them in order to improve one’s life is not wrong. However, we are forewarned against seeking too much. The analogy of two handfuls versus one can be seen as setting our goals too aggressively, reaching beyond our potential, sacrificing peace and happiness for the acquisition of worldly things.
