013 : Essentialism
The Disciplined Pursuit of Less
In 1400s the word ‘priority’ appeared and it was pluralised in 1900s …go figure, why it took ~500 years.
Though I am an extrovert, I love solitude, where I get most of my word done.
I wake up everyday and choose to design my day the way I want it to be, and not let it go in auto-drive.
No matter what you hear — No matter what you see — No matter what you feel …give your un-divided attention to the ‘only few’ which will strongly influence your ‘goals’.
When you ‘focus’ a.k.a. un-divided attention on the ‘only few’ a.k.a. essential things, and learn to do less, you are your own craftsman able to design a fulfilling life.
