Do Less Be More : Ban Busy and Make Space for What Matters
At a time when being busy is worn as a badge of honor, and we are accustomed to filling every waking moment with (often useless or unpleasant) activity, Do Less. Be More explores why switching off, or at the very least, slowing down, is vital, to ensure we achieve what we want.
Busy-ness is a barrier to self-reflection, a hindrance to novel solutions and a smokescreen to clarity. While cramming in one more task may feel useful, productive, or even satisfying, it’s not always the best use of a spare moment. In fact, it will inevitably lead us to a place where we become less productive, less creative, less inspired and less satisfied with life.
While we might think we don’t have any space in our lives to do more of what is important to us, Do Less Be More offers readers 21 activities to reclaim even the tiniest moments, like waiting for a coffee, to rest their brains and, in so doing, rediscover insight, inspiration and fresh ideas.Learn how to ban busy and focus on what really matters with practical ways to say no and embrace silence, space and solitude.
