Less is a practice

Throughout life, we’re taught to pick up more stuff. I mean this not only in the literal sense of buying products, but also in the sense of work. 

Exploring and picking up more opportunities. Exploiting current opportunities more. Meeting more people. 

It’s easy to say that you’re going to do less, which seems to be a more common mantra at the end of a year and the beginning of a new one. It’s much more difficult, and worthwhile, to actually practice it.

The challenge comes from a difference in worldview; it requires a complete shift. Less is the goal. (It’s too easy to get hard on yourself—“I want more less,” one might say.) 

Fewer opportunities, less excitement, and boredom ensuing from an incredibly tight focus.
