Do Less, Do More: Un-resolutions for 2020

Do less what keeps you stuck and do more of what makes you thrive.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

The end of the year is a great time to pause, reflect, and make any necessary adjustments and course corrections personally and for your business.

Instead of feverishly jotting down resolutions, swearing for the umpteenth time that this time they will last – which of course they won’t – you can reframe and trick train your brain into doing more what is good – what is better for you right now and into the future.

Enter: DO Less and DO More

The list below is long, and you can add many more items to your list.
However,
The longer the list, the harder it is to do less or more of anything.

Periodically review your list – not just once a year – and choose which ones to focus on at the time.
Something will stand out to you, and you know to give it more effort.

Consistency is nor flashy, nor does it offer instant gratification, but it is the very thing you need to succeed and create meaningful, sustainable results.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
