There's a flaw in our thinking. Actually, I won't generalize...
There's a flaw in my thinking. I'm guessing I'm not alone though.
My brain believes that going after more will make things better.
Go after more jobs. That will lead to more work, more opportunities and more money.
Let's do more stuff as a family. That will lead to more fun, more experiences and more memories.
Sure, in some cases this is true. More jobs is more work. But is it more opportunities or more money?
And if I flip it around, more opportunities could lead to more work as well. But is it more money or more jobs?
Doing more stuff as a family can lead to more experiences. But is it more fun? And will we remember everything?
The brain is there to protect me. It's playing defence.
What about offence though? What about listening to my gut? What am I feeling?
The Sweet Spot is somewhere in between our gut and our mind.
(Is it coincidence that our heart lands in the middle?)
More is not better. Better is better. And focus leads to more.
I know what I need to do. I just need to get out of my head and do it.
