Choose to do less

A checklist is a game.

A game that we all play and try to manipulate to win.

We start the day off with a list of things to do and with roughly 16 to 18 hours to do it.

The funny thing is, that tomorrow that checklist of things to do fills back up again.

You will never win the game by doing more.

But perhaps, you can win by doing less.

That by doing less you don’t immediately fill it back up.

By doing less sends the signal that you are not filling your list of things to do with urgent emergencies but with important work that takes time to complete.

Less is more.
