“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A simple way to get more out of each day is to eliminate distractions. Here are a couple of suggestions.
- Watch one less hour of Netflix, YouTube, or whatever it is you watch.
- Read less online. Don’t go down the rabbit hole and spend hours reading clickbait.
- Stop checking email all day. At the very least, put your phone on silent for a couple of hours each evening.
- Skip optional events. Stop worrying about missing out.
Sometimes, to add good things, you need to subtract some unimportant ones first.
