Keeping up

01 Feb 2024 1:02 PM | Keith Webb (Administrator)

Life has a way of increasing in complexity.

When I grew up there were 2 telephones in our home. My parents replaced them about every 10 years. Now, each person in my family has a phone, which is replaced every 3-4 years. Software needs to be updated several times a year. Someone's screen needs to be replaced once a year. 

And that's just the phone.

It feels, at times, I'm mostly just trying to keep up.

With emails.
With housework.
With broken things—software, systems, chairs, faucets.
With relationships.
With electronics.
With cars—maintenance, insurance, cleaning
With credential requirements.
With finances.
And the list goes on and on.

I envy those who downsize their living space. They've cut in half the number of things they need to clean and fix in the smaller space!

The principle here in life terms is: focus. 

Everything you create / launch / buy will produce additional things that you need to keep up with. So, only create / launch / buy what is most important to you. And "downsize" things that aren't.

Keeping up is easier if you have less to keep up with.
