Create opportunity by giving yourself the capacity to thrive
Sometime you need to move backwards to get forward.
I can’t wait to incorporate DYOL. Since my kids are 2 and 1 yrs old, unfortunately I’ll have to wait a bit.
This really resonated with me - I recently started taking a good, hard look at the little inconveniences in my house (an old storage solution that makes items very hard to reach, a precarious shelf, bottles of shampoo on the shower floor) and ironed them out by investing in intuitive solutions. The weight off my shoulders has been lighter than expected!
Very true and a very inspiring article. Thank you for sharing. I went thru my own trimming process of quitting a job I was not happy with, for a boutique consulting agency that I proudly run and by now served over 7 customers. And this is in one single year!
"Trimming our branches helps us make room for what matters most".
It's definitely about what we get, rather than what we lose.
Thanks, Deb!! Perfect timing to read this as I need to purge after moving things out of storage.
I’ve resisted letting go of things that were part of a “younger Me,” but I *must* release and make room for what’s next!
Snip, snip of the pruning shears! Ouch!😂🙌 Thanks!💕
Agree with much of this and have been through a number of these scenarios on both sides.
I wrote this week about how having the courage to be possibility focused vs. task focused. We become so accustomed to staying the course (or as you say 'not quitting') that we lose sight of creating more magical moments in life.
Good read. I like "Quit more and do more" concept. Put this in our newsletter today.
Memo to myself: https://share.glasp.co/kei/?p=q5ixnidaKEEK5Q3L97XC
This concept reminds me a lot of minimalism, 'less is more', and other theories that are based on getting rid of what is superfluous in order to rid our lives of what is potentially harmful.
I find the comparison with tree pruning beautiful. Nature can teach us everything from life. Thank you for your articles!
