Own fewer possessions

Own fewer possessions

The things we own take up far more time and mental energy than we realize.

They need to be cleaned, organized and maintained. And the more we own, the more time is required.

Stop the glorification of busy

Stop the glorification of busy

Busy should not be a badge of honor.

If directed at the wrong pursuits, it is actually a limiting factor to our full potential.

Being busy is a choice

We are never forced into a lifestyle of busyness. 'Busy' is nothing but a decision we make.

Simply realize that our schedules are determined by us. 

Cultivate space in your daily routine

Begin cultivating little moments of space in your otherwise busy day:

  • Make time for lunch. 
  • Find space in your morning to sit quietly before starting your day. 
  • Invest in solitude, meditation, or yoga. 
  • Find opportunities for breaks at work in between projects.

“Those who are wise won’t be busy, and those who are too busy can’t be wise.”

Seneca

“Everybody agrees that no one pursuit can be successfully followed by a man who is preoccupied with many things.”

Busy as a default state

“‘Busy’ has become the new ‘Fine’.” 

When you ask somebody how they were doing, they used to answer, “Fine.” But nowadays, everybody answers, “Busy.”

Revisit your priorities

Busyness is, at its core, about misplaced priorities.

Determine again what are the most significant contributions you can offer this world. And schedule your time around those first. 

Appreciate rest

Set aside time weekly for rest and family. Intentionally schedule it on your calendar.

One of the reasons many of us keep busy schedules is we fail to recognize the value of rest

Find freedom in saying NO

Learning to say “no” to less important commitments opens your life to pursue the most important.
