We live in a such a fast paced society which focuses on and prizes instant gratification. Fast food restaurants, online access to everything, twitter and four square to keep track of our friends and iphone to make sure we have 24/7 access to everyone and everything we could possibly need.
Do you ever wish you could just “simplify” life? Do you look forward to the weekends to just “do” nothing because it’s a tuesday and you’re already worn out from the week and thinking about what’s ahead? Read this quote and sit with it for a moment…
“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”– Lin Yutang
“Leaving things undone”… what a foreign concept to many of us! We are always so focused on “getting things done” that we sometimes forget what the essentials are! The guilt of not completing can drive us to keep adding to our lists. Just stop for a moment and look at your “to do” list and see if there is anything that is a “non-essential” and… are you ready? Prepared for this? JUST… SAY… NO!!
Shocking!? YES I KNOW! 🙂 Just say no to events, people, commitments and chores that infringe on your plans for your life and your relaxation time.
Creating the life you desire means taking charge how you spend your time. Make decisions about what matters to YOU!
