“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” John C. Maxwell.
The daily routine is quite meaningful yet often overlooked as mundane or full of tasks that are not as important as the major events in life like a job promotion or buying a house. A common complaint by people is, “I want to do all of these things, but I don’t have time.” Well here’s a solution that will help you do all the things you want: Want less. The reality is we, as humans, are bound by physical space and time. We can only do so much in a day (at least until scientists discover a way for humans to be in two places at once, but until then, I recommend reading the rest of this post!). What if we recognize our limitations of time and space and prioritize what we care about based on those limitations? If we try to “have it all” then we overfill our time with activities we can’t give our full attention to and we might miss moments that we actually value. So let’s figure out what we value and what we want to prioritize. By wanting less, we ultimately gain more.
