Q is for…



I have a free app (Transform Your Life) on my phone that delivers a lesson in the form of a quotation every day (at 10:15 am precisely, because I told it to).

Today’s quotation:

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

Today’s lesson:

Much of our lives are spent doing things we don’t want to do that don’t need to be done. Assignment: Today, look for non-essentials you can eliminate. Hint: Look for the non-essentials in habits.

Hello, Facebook – biggest time-suck habit in my universe, currently! And mostly non-essential. How much more could I get done in a week with the 30 minutes a day (at least) I spend with my nose in the ‘Book?

What non-essential habits would you want to eliminate?

  • That is such excellent advice. I take too long perfecting the language of minor communications, such as on a forum. ~rolls eyes~ And I make mistakes anyway, so why waste so much time! Best wishes.

  • Oh, the art of simplifying! I am finding out through my various purging life experiments that it is also an exercise in bravery and confidence. Thank you for your inspiring reassurance!

    • Definitely shows confidence, I agree Kalena!

I'd love to hear from you. Let's chat!
