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. (Jan.)
Back to basics
Is your life overscheduled and overrun by clutter, whether piles of paper on your desk or way too many commitments on your calendar? Leo Babauta has the solution. In The Power of Less: The Fine Art of Limiting Yourself to the Essential
. . . in Business and in Life he has created "a how-to manual on how to simplify and focus on the essential. How to do less while accomplishing more." Babauta isn't just paying lip service to the importance of learning to focus on what's important. Over the last few years, he's accomplished quite a list of goals (running two marathons, doubling his income, eliminating his debt, writing this book) while parenting six children. His secret lies in his ability to focus on one thing at a time rather than trying to juggle too many things at once. In the book, Babauta offers targeted suggestions for slowly but surely finding focus (and thus, greater efficiency). A 30-day challenge provides a kick-start, and simplification strategies and tips abound.
