Less is More

Conventional wisdom suggests more is more.

If we lack results, we ought to work on more.
If we are unhappy, we ought to own more.
If we are bored, we ought to experience more.

What if, instead of…

… working on more, we work on less and focus on what is important?
… buying more, we appreciate what we have and develop gratitude?
… trying to escape boredom, we sit with it and examine it?

Doing less, buying less and experiencing less can lead to more.

More work that matters.
More satisfaction and happiness.
More self-awareness and tranquility.

Differentiate between meaningful and meaningless work.
Cultivate gratitude and self-respect.
Embrace boredom and learn from it.

Do less, be more.
