According to Babauta (Zen to Done), employing "the power of less" will propel readers from chaos to blissful and productive minimalism. Learning to set limitations, such as penning a three-item "Most Important Task" list every day and restricting e-mails to five lines, is a cornerstone for the author's plan for increased simplicity and satisfaction. With new boundaries in place, readers can discover "flow," become wholly absorbed in tasks and live the paradox of doing less and achieving more.
Bad Book, Hard To Get Thru
He says don’t do hard stuff. No. Actually, sue this author — Leo Babouta — & do the oppoiste.
I kept waiting for some insight
I doubt this book will be helpful for me, but the good news is that it was only $10 and it only took me a few hours to read.
I didn’t like that it told me things I already knew, or it made stuff up. Like, if you want to have more time in your day, wake up 30 minutes early (sleep is important too and most of us don’t get enough as it is), or do less stuff during the day at work (as if that will actually work). Also, he tells you not to ever multi-task. When you’re eating concentrate on the food and the chewing. When you’re doing the dishes, think about doing the dishes. When you’re driving, concentrate on that. But then later states that he thinks about other things and plans his day while driving. Yeah, good luck just thinking about the dishes that you’re washing and having more time in your day.
