Derek Sivers, on how to improve life, not by adding things but by subtracting things:
The least successful people I know run in conflicting directions, are drawn to distractions, say yes to almost everything, and are chained to emotional obstacles.
The most successful people I know have a narrow focus, protect themselves against time-wasters, say no to almost everything, and have let go of old limiting beliefs.
It’s easy to think I need something else. It’s hard to look instead at what to remove.
