Motivational Power Quote

 

Know When to Eliminate the Non-Essentials

“Beside the noble art of getting things done,

there is the noble art leaving things undone.

The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”

Lin Yutang, Chinese inventor, writer

 

As I see it. . . . . . . .

 

Know when to eliminate the Non-essentials

 

There are things best left undone.

 

There are things that must be done.

 

The key becomes knowing what’s important to be done and what is best to be eliminated.

 

Focus on what’s important to your success and eliminate the non-essentials time wasters.

 

When you eliminate the non-essentials you take control your time and your time is put productive use which will create greater productively.

 

Invest your time in what will move you closer to your goals and eliminate the busy work.

 

When we continue to focus what’s important to know when  to eliminate the non-essentials and we create more time to do what’s important.

Lou, this is a great quote - I end up working on something that should be 'eliminated' many times and be more productive but...

Hi Lou,
Thanks for the gentle reminder.
Focusing on the important tasks and ignoring the non essential could dramatically impact my day.
Although it is difficult at times, I'll try to make this my daily goal to work on my essential tasks.
Have a fabulous week!

Good morning Lou,

Non-essentials and procrastination...two of the worst thieves of time!

Lou what a great quote...too many times in both personal and business life we end up spending time and energy on things that would have played zero role in improving life or more business opportunity.
