“Busy” doesn’t necessarily mean happy or important. It often means spread too thin, stressed to the max, and unable to focus on the people and things we care about the most. Prioritize what matters. Set clear boundaries. Do less, enjoy more.
“Narrowing our focus means we have to give attention to a select few areas of our lives, at the expense of others. We identify the handful of things that mean most to us in life (relationships with loved ones, our health, our work, self-improvement, contribution) and we prioritize them. We let some of the other stuff go, or set very clear boundaries... We make this quality time and turn up truly present and fully invested. We listen, we share, we love, we contribute. We also make time for our passion projects and hobbies. We invest in our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. We challenge ourselves but are also kind to ourselves.” ~Carl Phillips
Chase less, focus more. Take on less but get more done. When we simplify, we allow ourselves to focus on what really matters in life.
