You’ll probably see a bit less of me blogging or sending the newsletter, at least through April. I’m hyper-focused on minimizing distractions in my life and doing what matters most to me to achieve my goals. Or if I do post, I’ll try to make it short and to-the-point, a quick update of where I’m at, what I’m doing, where I’m going.
Last year, my word of the year was “DEFY”. I wanted most of all to defy my own expectations. I don’t know if I did quite that but it was certainly a year of growth for me. This year, I’ve deemed it the year of “LESS”. Here is what I’ve come up with:
The Year of Less
LESS social media/news/browsing/distractions
LESS alcohol & bad food
LESS buying things I don’t need/spending money
LESS worrying about things that don’t matter
MORE focus on my novel and reading
MORE enjoying the moment with my family
MORE moving my body and healthy foods
I realize that LESS and MORE look equal. But by cutting down on more of the former, I can do so much more of the latter. And that is the point. In my next blog post, I’ll look to update my word count goals so I can hit my much more targeted writing deadlines.
