What could you take away?
The New Year is coming up. You might’ve given someone something recently. Or maybe even received a gift from someone. It's the season of giving. And it’s around this time, New Years resolutions start being formulated.
This year, I’d like to...
• Lose weight
• Stop eating KFC
• Get healthier
• Love myself more
• Get a girlfriend
• Earn more money
• Be more true to myself
• Work for myself
• Become a creative
• Learn to code
• Start writing more often
• Take more risks
Each one of these have worked their way into my resolutions over the years.
This time I’m training myself to think a little differently.
Instead of opting for more, which is usually my default, I’m asking what could I take away?
Could I do less but better? How could I do better work with the tools I have?
Could I own less but better? Can I keep my expenses down, or lower them but produce more value?
You might want to try the same. Instead of adding something new in the New Year, take something away.
