I asked one of my kids if he thought his life was simple or complicated. He didn’t know what complicated meant, but he said his life is less simple than it used to be. He meant that life was only “simple” when he was a baby– because he “couldn’t really do anything, so there was nothing to do”.
How simple can life be, for non-babies? I don’t know, but I’d sure like to find out. I believe that for almost everyone, life can be simpler and more organized than it is now.
Commit to finding at least one way to simplify your life this week. Protect your free time and your home from the clutter of habits and objects that suck all the time and space from your life. You don’t need to color-code anything, you don’t need to buy anything, and you don’t need to make anything perfect– just make something in your life a little simpler, or faster, or cleaner.
