Bruce Lee: Minimalist

7 Sep

“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease; hack away at the unessential.” — Bruce Lee

Lee was speaking in the context of martial arts, but I believe the principle may be applied to very nearly everything.

The next time you feel overwhelmed, try hacking away at the unessential.

    All right then – first coffee, then hacking! I’m on it.

      Coffee definitely falls under the category of “essential” for some folks. I could never stand the stuff myself, even when I worked in a coffeehouse. Good luck with your hacking.

    This makes a great dieting mantra. Commencing with the hacking – where’s my machete?

    I’m doing a daily decrease – a 30-day LightLiving Challenge! Releasing 5 things every day, and choosing 3!
