Deep Dive: The Art of Saying No

A few more seconds, deeper reflections.

When you read these reflections, I want you to remember that not everything has to be implemented at once, and also that not everything might be right for you. Like with anything else out there, I encourage you to be selective and take one step at a time.

It's easy to become overwhelmed by information and bogged down in details. That's why you should fight, with others and with yourself, on how you use your time. Could voluntarily limiting what you do your choices lead to more freedom?

Simplifying your life certainly makes it easier to focus on what's truly important. And, just because something is available, it doesn't mean you have to consume it.
