Simple Wake-Up Call: Another Moment of Zen

First, thank you Heath for inviting me! It’s been a wonderful ride all week long! Now, another of Ten Simple Truths I’ve discovered while studying how stuff gets done in most workplaces:

There are three basic reasons for doing less at work…

  • “Work is important, but it is not life.
    I want to focus on all that life outside of work has to offer.”
  • “I want to make a difference. The work I do must matter.
    So I only focus on what I believe matters.”
  • “I want to be the best I can be. So I focus on what excites me and helps me grow.”

Which means:

  • Doing less and laziness are not the same thing
  • Every individual must decide why s/he wants to do less,
    and live every day according to that decision
