Doing More is Often Less
Doing, doing, doing. No wonder we are so concerned with being right---we are so active, we have to measure HOW we are doing by WHAT we did right and what we did wrong. We are rushing too fast to assess any other way.
Simplicity can be a form of integrity (remember the definition---that which works in the long-run). MORE and FASTER are not our highest choices.
Keeping your life chaotic and complicated is a terrific way to avoid looking at it too closely. Instead of assessing the quality level in your key relationships, you may be running around checking off the to-do list, faster and faster and with great accuracy. And in that rushing about, you (and I) decided that this was RIGHT. This was a life lived RIGHT. More stuff, more things done, more action...is it right?
I suspect this quote below is pointing us in the RIGHT direction...and it is NOT suggesting we do MORE:
"Of all the things that matter, that really and truly matter, working more efficiently and getting more done, is not one of them."
Let's consider today that doing less is the best way to build trust, increase pleasure, decrease stress and start living right.
Return from "Trust Simplicity" and back to 30-Day Challenge.
