Subtraction, Suckers for Nostalgia, and Staying out of Jail - The Weekly Zazz #14

What you look for is what you find.

The more things we add, the bigger our plate looks. Whether we'll be able to finish that plate is something no one asks. Just that the plate should look full.

Instead, if we keep just two things on it, or four, or all, or none, depends on person to person, but one would find more joy and less stress. More satisfaction and less headache.

I wish I was talking about food here, but it's about life, and doing too many things at once, creating this pressure to do more, without being able to enjoy even one wholly.

It's in moments like these when you take a step back and realize this and ultimately take the decision to subtract things from your life, in order to be freer, have more time and less stress. Subtraction creates those opportunities for us, which addition does not.
