“You cannot overestimate the unimportance of practically everything.”Greg McKeown – “Essentialism”
All things are not created equal, and most things are a waste of your time.
But what do the things that are worth engaging with have in common? I have boiled this question down to two simple sentences for you. A good thing satisfies one of these. A great thing, both.
- It is enjoyable whilst you are doing it.
- It is enjoyable to look back on having done it.
If whatever you’re doing, or contemplating doing, doesn’t serve either of these purposes – and there isn’t a gun to your head – just say “no.”
