"Busy" Is the Enemy


“If your goal is to build a remarkable life, then busyness and exhaustion should be your enemy. If you’re chronically stressed and up late working, you’re doing something wrong….You’ve built a life around hard to do work, not hard work.

“The solution suggested by [research] is as simple as it is startling: Do less. But do what you do with complete and hard focus. Then when you’re done be done, and go enjoy the rest of the day.
—Cal Newport

Rita--I always choose quotes and poems that resonate with me, and I'm always thrilled when someone else is inspired by them. I'm glad this one resonated with you, too.
