do more than you have to
If you're painting a picture and you just keep adding color
after color after color, you know what? It turns muddy. It
loses its value. There comes a time to stop.
There's got to be an easier way
Ask yourself, "Can I still get what I want in some easier
way?" Sometimes the road you're on is just too long,
and there are shortcuts everywhere. Find them.
Get more for less
A string of smaller successes can really add up over time,
and take you farther than bigger success. If you do one "something"
to get back three things, you'll have more than five "somethings"
only getting you back ten.
Do I really need it?
Yeah, do you? Sure you may want it badly… but for how
long? Take a closer look at it. Do without it for just a bit
longer. If you don't really miss it, you can save time by
not pursuing it.
Don't do all that "stuff"
We really have so much time on our hands, we really do. We
just fill it in with so much "stuff" It actually
takes a lot of work to be lazy enough to come up with solutions,
but in the end, it gives you back enough time to get the really
important stuff done.
Just get there
Results matter; not how much it took to get there. The one
who comes in last can do just as much work as the one who
comes in first. Success has a lot of other factors besides
how much effort you put into it.
Now I'm not implying that you should cheat.
Lazy people shouldn't cheat. That's just more "stuff"
you don't need. What I'm saying is that you don't have to
work so hard at getting successful; you have to become lazy enough
to let it happen.
