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!

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