Life is constantly changing. What you once wanted may no longer apply.
It’s about making choices about what is most worth having and letting go of the other things.
Here’s a free bit of therapy: you always have a choice. Even when you don’t have choices you like, you still have choices.
So what does this mean for you?
It means that you need to recognize the choices you are making, and decide if those choices are helping you focus on what matters most to you.
Once you develop that laser focus on your priorities, you can move slower and get more done.
If you don’t slow down, your frantic pace will impact your mood, your health, and your ability to get things done.
Being honest about the level of pressure in your work and personal life is a first step toward creating a strategy that works for you.
You can’t afford not to slow down.
“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
