We live in a culture that values doing more. Having more. I’m going to suggest instead that (for a change) you do less. Because in the end, when you do less, you actually end up with more.

Doing less allows us to focus on what truly matters. And do these things better.

It’s not easy. Busy-ness can feel comfortable. Slowing down can feel… kinda lazy, maybe. Or like we’re missing something. But often, all our “busy-ness” simply masks our fear that we are not enough as we are. If we just keep running, we’ll get somewhere… because “here” is not enough.

Today, realize: If you are living in accordance with your deeper values, you are already doing enough. You are already enough.

It’s easy to get freaked out and overwhelmed by too many competing demands on your time. Sit down and make a list of all the things you think you have to do — and then systematically decide not to do some of them. Make your decision based on your priorities and values (see how a mission statement becomes useful?).

For each task, ask yourself: Does this fit into what is truly important and meaningful to me?If not, either put it on a list for later, ask for help, delegate the job to somebody else, or let it go completely — without guilt. If yes, commit to focusing on each task or obligation with your full attention. It’ll get done more quickly, plus you’ll be more focused and more effective.

End rant.

Every minute on the minute x 15:

_______________

Conditioning:

4 Rounds Not For Time:

8 Pistols or Box Pistols
8ea Single-Arm Dumbbell Presses
4-8 Strict Pull-Ups

For the Box Pistols, start standing on a box and lower yourself to the bottom of a Pistol with your non-working leg trailing off to the side. Stand back up on the working leg if you can. If not then stand back up however you can. This version requires a little less flexibility. Go heavy on the Dumbbell Presses. Use bands or add weight as necessary on the Pull-Ups.
