More About The Joy of Doing Just Enough by Jennifer McCartney
 
 
 
Overview
There is great wisdom in the rainforests of the Amazon. It is contained in the trees and on the ground, wherever sloths can be found. Sloths are a still life mindfulness. Call them lazy, but maybe what we call "lazy" is actually the secret to being alive. By not moving, sloths avoid predators. They hardly need to eat anything, because they're not expending any energy. It takes them up to a week to digest their leafy meals, so there's little urgency to even relieve themselves. Surely there is a lesson--or 99 of them--to be learned from these creatures. Most importantly, how to be lazy.Contemplative, deliberate, relaxed, and focused, sloths embody the value of doing nothing day in and day out. With quotes about slow living, lessons based on sloth behavior, and darling photographs, this book strives to capture the koan that is the sloth: If he survives best by doing nothing, isn't he actually doing something?
