“A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.”
When it comes to focus, knowing what to ignore is as important — if not more — than what to focus on.
Selective ignorance is not about lack of knowledge of information. Instead, it’s intentionally choosing subjects, facts, people, that you do not wish to know about.
The more selective ignorance you cultivate in your life the more time you’ll have to the things that matter:
Ignorance indeed is bliss, if practised selectively. News, people, topics, projects can drain a lot of our energy, and most of us seep into everything knowledgeable, thinking it’s the right thing to do.
The unlimited amount of information available on news sites, podcasts, social media can overwhelm anyone. One has to cultivate an intentional approach to one’s content consumption, work and relationships.
90% of your daily decisions happen automatically, many shaped by your environment. Thus, most decisions are a habit, not a deliberate choice.
To make smarter choices, design smarter defaults. And habits can be developed by shaping the invisible defaults of your life.
Habits and work systems can produce the best return on your time.
Getting more work done is about knowing what to do, when to do it, and how to get it done in order to maximize the little time you have every day.
