Accomplish More by Doing Less!
In his book, "Less: Accomplishing More by Doing Less" (2009), Marc Lesser (yes, that's his real name!) sets out clear and practical guidelines for breaking the addiction to busyness. It helps that he's a Zen teacher with an MBA. But his thesis is that we live in time, not through time. Living in time is to be bounded by "clock time". Useful in planning and measuring. But it's not the same as absolute time. Time which is unbounded. Timeless. We need to be capable of stopping. To view our life as part of this flow. Only then can we choose our aspirations and make a conscious effort to accomplish whatever it is we came here to do!
