Maybe you should do less 'work' (3 min read)
Spending more time on "work" usually means you are spending time being "inefficient". We've created a society that has people bragging about working 80+ hour work weeks, and others feel as if they aren't accomplishing enough when they finish their work in less time. The reality is that many people are spending too much time on "work".
Parkinson's Law states that "work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion." The problem is that many people give themselves unbounded time intervals and too much to accomplish in an undefined amount of time.

What do you want your life to be like in 5 years?
Do you believe?
What would I do if I wasn’t scared?
Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
Am I surrounding myself with the right people?
Are you in your own way?
Are you appreciating where you're at?
Are you showing up?
What are you letting in?
My personal favorite is: What would I do if I wasn’t scared? Oftentimes, this is after the second question that you need to be asking yourself. First, you should be asking, "What am I afraid of?" or "What is holding me back?"
This is pure awesomeness, this bottle adds a scented ring around the lip of the bottle that fools people's senses into thinking that what they're drinking tastes amazing, just because it smells great--but it is simply tap water!
