Doing Less to Do More

Posted on 01-10-2017

If you’re doing everything, do you really have time to do anything? Sometimes we like to pack our days full of things that are meant to bring our lives more joy, but maybe these things are making life more stressful and are keeping us back from living the lives we want.

When you try to fit a 40-hour work week, kids, sports practices and games, dance lessons, music lessons, play dates, and family time all in one week, life may start to seem a little too full. We need to invest in the things that we are really passionate about instead of booking our schedules full of things just for the sake of booking them.

If little Sally loves art, consider letting her take art lessons and really investing in that skill. If she prefers dance or music, invest in one of those. But trying all three at once could be overwhelming to everyone involved, and there wouldn’t be enough time to involve yourself in all three. If you’re doing all three, then you really won’t have time for any of them.

The art of doing less to do more is quality over quantity. Doing less allows you to focus on the things that actually matter. Focusing on priorities will allow you to achieve better results and actually accomplish more. When you let go of the things that are distracting you from really living, you’ll be less stressed and more likely to enjoy the things that come your way.

With young children, this idea is especially important because our children should be one of our highest priorities, and it’s easy to get caught up in doing things for our children instead of just loving them. In 2017, don’t do things just simply to do them, but invest in activities that are going to bring joy to the life of your family.
